Vikings owner Zygi Wilf reportedly wants to play outdoors. His new coach has a different opinion on the matter.
Appearing as the first guest on the first episode of ProFootballTalk Live (we were going to call it The T.Ocho Show but that name was taken), Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said that he prefers the environment created by the Metrodome.
When, you know, the roof isn’t caved in.
Said Frazier: “I love playing in that Metrodome. It gives opposing teams fits. We’ve seen the effect that it has on other teams and I can think back to a number of games, including our playoff game a year ago against the Cowboys. It just made it a very dysfunctional situation for their offense. It’s got to be one of the loudest venues if not the loudest in the National Football League and when it’s going there’s not greater place to be a home team than here in Minnesota. It’s a special place.”
