A design firm is out with a proposed “eco-friendly” NFL football stadium for a realty corporation that wants to attract an NFL team.
Is it mere coincidence it has a “purple” theme?
“The innovative 75,000-seat stadium will be built at a cost of $800 million, which is about $400 million less than other NFL stadium proposals,” the Web site says.
The Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, however, has unveiled an $870 million stadium design to try to keep the Vikings in Minnesota. The team’s lease at the Metrodome ends after the 2011-2012 season.
