The NFL Should Have Kept the Vikings-Giants Game in Minnesota

The NFL should not have moved the Vikings-Giants football game this evening from Minneapolis to Detorit. They had a perfectly good option at TCF, the football home of the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
If you didn’t know, the Metrodome (the home of the Vikings) inflatable roof collapsed Sunday morning under a bunch of snow. It is unplayable.

By moving the game, the NFL is taking the game away from the true Vikings fans and moving it to one of their hated rivals in the NFC North, the Detroit Lions.

There goes the home field advantage an NFL team usually enjoys. They are giving the tickets away to the game, first-come, first-served.

The NFL could have just as easily kept the game in the Twin Cities, played the game outside at the University of Minnesota and kept the game in front of Vikings fans.

Come on NFL, stop ruining the game.
