The Minnesota Vikings have been trying for some time to get a new stadium built. While most who have been to the Metrodome would agree that it's not exactly a pristine venue, it doesn't seem that anyone can figure out how to pay for a new stadium.
At this time, the Vikings would like some $700 million from the state of Minnesota to help fund a project that is nearing a $1 billion pricetag. The state has scoffed, citing a rather ominous budget deficit. The Vikings don't care.
