Why yes, we do think this is a metaphor for the Minnesota Vikings as a team, organization and fan base.
The Hormel Chili Dome, the Vikings shiny new nearly-complete stadium, is already broken.
About 30 percent of the exterior panels of (The Hormel Chili Dome) must be removed to fix water damage linked to leaks in the snow gutter system. The damage will cost about $3 million to $4 million, which will be covered by the stadium contractors and designers.
Second-rate stadium built by second-rate contractors for second-rate team!
These assholes should have hired from Wisconsin.
Lambeau Field has been renovated numerous times and has had no such problems. Do you know why?
Because the Green Bay Packers didn’t hire mouth breathers from Minnesota!
Yes, the geniuses responsible for this debacle are Mortensen Construction, headquartered right there in the giant dollop of shit known as Minneapolis.

Only the Vikings, man. Only the Vikings…
Ziggy’s adult diapers had some leakage ay?
I wouldn’t go in that place for the first year. I can just see this headline from the St Paul Press next November. “Viking official notices pillar not secured to stadium.”
Mortenson will not Incurr a single penny for the mistake(s).The design firm has errors and omissions insurance that may pay. Mortenson will put the rest on subcontractors and or suppliers. If that does not reduce Mortensons incurred costs to zero then they will roll the rest into costs of delays or changes requested or caused by the building owner. Mortenson will probably make money on the screwup!
I guarantee you Mortenson probably has big time bids on at least 10 other projects right now. Don’t doubt for a moment that some of these bids will be lost because of this incident.
So, in other words, this likely costs Mortenson millions in revenue. Someone is going to be fired. Possibly the jackass in the picture above.
The project is over a billion dollars. 4 mil is less than .004 of the project value. .004 would be $16,000 on the 4 mil. mistake. It is really nothing on a project this size. Mortenson is to big, and negotiates to many projects to have a small problem like this hurt them on future projects. If this was a much smaller project or the project was delayed because of the mistake it could have an impact on future work.
Didn’t Miller Park have some sort of accident before it opened. didn’t it also have roof issues after it was built?
In other words, who gives a fuck what happens in Minnesota?
The Vikiqueens stadium looks like a iceberg.
Packers fans are upset the Vikings run the division now I see. Good stuff
This article combines the traits often seen in Packers fans as a whole = inaccuracy, dumb hatred, nasty stupidity, inability to see the big picture, and a sense of entitlement. First, it is US Bank stadium, not Hormel Chili Dome. Now, maybe you knew that and maybe you did not. Never underestimate the depth of stupidity on the Packer side. It could be defended as an attempt to be funny. Problem is, that is just not funny at all. Being named by a MN food company is, when you think about it, less embarrassing than being named by a bank (evil f*cks). Hard to tell if sheer ignorance/stupidity is the cause of this gaffe by McMahan or just an underdeveloped — practically skeletal –sense of humor is to blame. Unwisely McMahan then goes on to say the Vikings are a second rate team. Why so unwise? They are better than the Packers as proven by a better record and taking the division title. So, if they are second best then he Packers are, at best, third best. McMahan probably thinks the Dallas Cowboys or Jacksonville Jaguars are the first rate teams! You know, you have to give respect to get respect. Packers players, coaches, fans, and writers don’t do that. That is why the Packers are not respected. Tehy blame losses on others, refs, that they gave the game away, etc. Always a whiny excuse, slightly muffled in mouths full of half-chewed bratwurst on the way to waistlines far larger than average in America. The stupidity continued to erupt from Mount Stupidicus with criticism of Minnesota. Hey, I don’t even live in Minnesota but even I know it beats Wisconsin in nearly every way — nicer people (obviously), overall intelligence of the natives (obviously), better schools, more to do, a better history in sports and otherwise, a higher standard of living, better outdoors activities, better terrain, bigger size, etc. Since it is better than Wisconsin in every meaningful regard when the writer critiques it he is then really slamming Wisconsin terribly. Wisconsinites, this writer just trashed you! Look what he said about the state and people in the state that you know are so much better and better of than yourselves! What is he then saying about you guys! You should be offended. Also, if he is some shining example of the thinking man’s Packers fan then… yuck. Just grotesque. By the way, saying that Lambeau has never had any problems in comparison is kind of like saying your little red toddler wagon never broke down so how come this NASA rocket can only go to the moon and never goes to Saturn. Also, it is not true. Lambeau Field has had major problems= Every week during the season it is infested by fat drunken excuse-making blame-others idiots unable to complete sentences longer than six words or words longer than four syllables.
Now you’ve done it, Monty. You’ve got “Killer” all riled up. That’s much more satisfaction than you deserve;)
