Anybody like the dome for football? Minus the carppy plastic seats, I enjoy myself there and we have a home field advantage, I believe in there. How much money would it be to revamp the dome, being that only the Vikes are left there?

With the Colts building a new stadium I think they won't have a home field advantage like they have had.

Do I like the dome? For the Gophers, definitely not. For the Vikes, I think the dome does the job and it's nice in the late season when it gets cold. But overall the whole metrodome experience is lacking, and WAY TOO LOUD AND MECHANICAL for Vikings games. It's trashy. It's bush league.

never seen a football game anywhere else outside of Collegeville for a St. John's game. I think the Dome is good for football but yes lose the artifical atmosphere you have to be bombarded with. I thought there was talk about re-doing the dome for the vikes once the twins and gophs are out?

I think the dome is fine for football except the seats, not enough room for a tall guy. My biggest problem with the dome is its location and parking. Call me a hick or whatever, but I can not stand driving downtown Mpls and will avoid it at all costs. Put a stadium in the burbs somewhere and I would go to a couple games a year.

Nick on 93x said it best when he calls it the big inflatable toilet. I think it could work but get rid of all that dang noise. Get better seats in there as well.

Great for football, not so much for baseball. BUT, as far as baseball even, undeniable home field advantages.

Sounds like a couple Iowa fans enjoyed it a little too much in the restrooms...a little trashy for FM so google it at your own risk.

Hmmm...guess I never tried that at the Metrodome. Probably for the best but may have made the experience more memorable. whistle

As jbell said, location stinks for those of us who detest driving around in downtown Mpls. The sooner I'm outta there for meetings, etc., the happier I am. Moving Gopher football off campus and catering to business interests was a huge mistake after seeing many a game at Memorial stadium. Dome is OK for Vikings games in late November and December. Seats suck if you happen to be seated by a wide-body. Twinkies games-sight lines not so great, no rain-outs of course but we get back to location and lack of atmosphere. The right field bleachers in the old Met were a great place to kill a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in the sun during my college days. Looking forward to the new stadium although a retractable roof should've been in the plans IMO...

It's not just driving around Minneapolis, but having to park 40 blocks away or paying through the nose to be halfway close is a joke. One of the things I miss about Kansas Citys Truman Sports Complex. Yes, you have to pay, but it isn't a ridiculous amount, and you are right outside the stadium gates at games end. Very convenient.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
