Out with all of the old - the politics, non-supportive governors and politicians, debates, excuses, wants, wishes, ex-team owners, locations that were then were not. All of that is history.

Today, we start new. New dome, new home, new thread.

They have to punch this through and unveil that it has two cool retractable features like Lucas Oil does.

Just cracking a window open would be like totally redesigning an awesome new kitchen but going with formica counter tops not granite.

As I just wrote on my facebook in another discussion, here is my hope for the stadium.

All I'm hoping for is a radical design. I don't want another boring stadium like Detroit or Indy. I want it to usher a new era of stadiums. I don't want it to even look like a 'stadium'. Then I'll be happy. Otherwise I'll be bored with it.

When I was at the viking website I just saw an article from the end of february.



The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) and the Minnesota Vikings have agreed on a multi-use field configuration for the new Minneapolis stadium set to open in 2016.

After multiple discussions surrounding the importance of providing a first-class NFL game day experience and accommodating other events throughout the year, the MSFA and the Vikings have agreed on a field configuration that will accomplish the Vikings needs and ensure an outstanding indoor venue for various uses throughout the year, including collegiate, high school and amateur baseball.

“We are happy to announce that the Vikings and the Stadium Authority have agreed on a stadium solution that accommodates baseball without compromising the game-day experience for Vikings fans,” said Lester Bagley, the Vikings Vice President of Public Affairs and Stadium Development. “We all had to compromise, but this agreement will work for Vikings fans, the baseball community and other users of the facility.”

Bagley also noted that the agreement will yield a field configuration that is among the most intimate in the NFL.

“With this resolution, we’ll have sidelines that are just forty-four feet from our closest fans, which is among the most intimate configurations in the League,” Bagley said. “This agreement ensures a game-day experience that will include a great home-field advantage and a level of intimacy in the stadium that our fans deserve.”

The configuration includes the following elements:

* Optimal NFL Sidelines
* Outfield Baseball Dimensions with 26' High Right Field Wall
- Right Field Foul Line - 300'
- Right Center Field - 341'
- Center Field - 400'
- Left Center Field - 365'
- Left Field Foul Line - 326'
* Retractable Seats on North Sideline
* Removable Dugouts

The full stadium design for various events will be unveiled with the 100% schematic design later this spring.

Multi-purpose is fine with me. As long as it's done in a good way. If it's multipurpose in the mold of the awful 60's and 70's stadiums of which the Metrodome was the tail end of the trend, then yeah it would be horrible. But if it can be done in some new innovative way, bring it on.

Instead of being the end of an era like the Metrodome was as the end of the cheap, soulless, concrete, multipurpose eyesores, let this be the first stadium of the next generation, that will be copied by other cities for years to come.

The story on http://Vikings.com says the stadium will have "the largest transparent roof in the world." Also operable doors. Fixed roof.
