  1. “A tobacco tax has helped Minnesota pay for the Vikings’ new stadium.

    But of course no one will be permitted to smoke in the stadium financed, in part, by tobacco taxes!

  2. >I work in Wisconsin and am from Maine. Unbelievable the stuff these inbreeds say

    If you’re going to try to run down a fan base, try spelling it right. *inbreds

  3. @Jimmysee – Of course not! No smoking inside the stadium yet they hold the Monster Jam monster truck event indoors. Inhaling diesel exhaust for four hours is ok but God forbid somebody lights up a cigarette. Oh the horror!

  4. But of course no one will be permitted to smoke in the stadium financed, in part, by tobacco taxes!

    Good, why should my health be endangered or my game experience diminished by your filthy habit.

  5. @illogic87, sorry to hear you haven’t been able to integrate with the folks from Wisconsin, clearly, you’re missing out on a great fanbase and team to root for. I guess that’s what happens when your home state doesn’t have a team to root for. “If you can’t beat em’ join em’.

  6. did the New England Patriots cha getheirnameback to Boston Patriots? is Maine not part of New England anymore? does your comment make any sense since the Packers have “Green Bay” in their title and not milwaukee or Wisconsin? do you live in “green bay”?
