    Not if it's outdoors or "semi-enclosed" like you've been pushing.

    Good fix.

    We should probably add “crying, kicking, screaming, stomping your feet, holding your breath, throwing things, and breaking things (like a once decent message board)”.

    You must make the best business plans...

    I'm all for a new stadium that makes sense but it's going to be hard pressed to make the numbers pencil out by any stretch of imagination. In a way NDSU sold it's FB soul to city of Fargo with the Fargodome. That said I think they both need each other but I'd say Fargo would be hurt less by losing NDSU games than NDSU would be by trying to make a stadium work/profitable or even break even on their own now since they'd essentially have to start from ground zero. The only way I can see it happening is through a very large monetary gift of the likes that hardly anyone has ever seen.
    who cares about the Fargodome/City of Fargo if NDSU has a stadium like this. Fargodome is outdated and was built too small for the growth of NDSU football and quite frankly the city of fargo 200,000 people in the area now?


    NDSU would make the revenue, what does NDSU make revenue wise on NDSU football in the fargodome now?

    Its sad to think people know he went to NDSU.
    If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles"

    When you play football, you gotta like the taste of blood, And 50 percent of the time, it's your blood.

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    If you want to be honest they are about on par with your posts where you denigrate posters and their arguments by labeling them stupid.

    For most things they put on in there now it definitely is size for what city needs, what other events other than NDSU football is it too small? It probably misses out on the larger convention center stuff no doubt but Fargodome isn't really even set up like a convention center currently. Who cares? Um city taxpayers do. I'm not one so I guess I don't really maybe? So NDSU builds a partially outdoor stadium how are you going to host trade shows/conferences in this thing 365 days?

    NDSU stadium would require a whole administration to run it/market it etc. Then you have to hire all the event staff etc as well. I think a lot more goes into costs than your brain is thinking on this. I don't know those answers for sure but pretty sure a NDSU indoor stadium (if somehow managed that) and fargodome in the same vicinity would bleed each other dry and neither one would end up being a good facility for anything.
