Dayton: We abandoned Linden Ave #Vikings site in part cuz Bascilica threatened lawsuit.
(Pat Kessler tweet).
For those of you who do not know, the Basilica is a huge Catholic church on that end of town. What, exactly, was its lawsuit going to say? "Hey, no building a big stadium near me. It hurts Catholics...."
Come on, grow a pair. Now we are left with a "site" that is really no site. It will require the Vikes to play 3-4 years at the Gophers stadium and lose a shitload of money, and then the stadium goes right back into the ghost town end of town where nothing seems to grow.
Target Field in 3 years -- has spun off 30 bars or restaurants nearby. Metrodome -- 1 in 30 years.
