Stop That Train

Neighborhood groups say the Gopher/Vikings stadium drive is going too fast

Of course, if communities made decisions about stadium building based strictly on sound public-policy criteria, few if any new stadiums would get built. The trick for stadium boosters is to shift the terms of debate.

And that, notes Vikings lobbyist Bagley, is beginning to happen here.

"I think there has been progress on the notion that this is about market economics. If this community wants to have the NFL, if we want to be a major league city, we have to solve the problem," Bagley says. "It's not about good or bad public policy."
