Dan Wetzel has an excellent column on the Minnesota Vikings stadium issue. It includes a discussion about the absurdity of fans paying for a wealthy owner’s new stadium but still being subject to the blackout rule.

Here’s Wetzel’s conclusion:

Minnesota is going to get a new stadium. The Vikings are going to stay put. And the taxpayers are going to pay to build a state-of-the-art cash machine of a stadium for a billion-dollar organization that doesn’t have to even guarantee the games will be on television.

That’s just how the NFL works. That’s just how the NFL has always worked.
