MINNEAPOLIS -- The push to keep the Minnesota Vikings in downtown Minneapolis is finding new opposition. Mayor R.T. Rybak got a cold reception as he pitched his funding proposal to Minneapolis City Council on Thursday.
Most council members said they opposed the plan, which would redirect taxes from paying off the city's convention center in order to build a new stadium.
Meanwhile, the Vikings continue to support building a new stadium across the river near St. Paul, saying a workable plan is already in place. Plus team officials say the Arden Hills site would create parking revenue for the team and the potential of having team headquarters and a practice site along with the stadium, all in one place.
