    Just trying to give Favre more time to recover so he can keep his streak.

    This should not come as any real surprise,,,,,,,as it is an INFLATABLE dome roof...............built in the days of the pyramids.

    I bet there is a video of Favre paying some guy to fly over the rookf in a helicopter an dump snow on it to make it collapse in order to give him more time to recover so that he can continue the streak!!!

    At this point I think they'll just move it to New York (sorry, New Jersey) and call it a Viking home game - you know - so they don't feel cheated. Remember New Orleans?

    The only other remaining NFL teflon inflatable dome roof stadium is the Silverdome. Some of you may not remember, but..........

    They mentioned that on the NFL Network, but the low Monday night is supposed to be -10F! Ouch. I don't know about that. Call me a wimp...:whip:

    A wimp, not a whip!!! :)

    Nobody is preying harder than Palestine, Tx native Adrian Peterson that this game is not played outside in the elements of Minnesota this week.

    Whoever had the great idea to build a stadium with a nylon roof needs to be shot.

    Whoever had the great idea for WORKERS to be standing on top of that roof with snow shovels needs to be shot. Repeatedly.

    Did you see the espn.com video of Ed Werder, standing outside the dome, and in the background you see three guys on top of the roof...shoveling snow?

    WTH?!?!?

    Uh, what is going on there? Did the same people who thought a student should be on top of a scissor-lift at Notre Dame practice during 60 mph winds also decide it was OK for men to stand on a roof that's tearing under the weight of snow?

    I am just amazed at this. If I'm asked to go up there and shovel snow, I'm contacting OSHA. I'm just sayin'....

    How is the Silverdome the only remaining NFL teflon inflatable dome roof stadium when there hasn't been a game there since 2001?

    Anyway, talk is of moving the game to Detroit (Ford Field) or New Orleans.

    They're lucky the game got pushed back. This could've injured a lot of people. That's unacceptable.
