Before Minneapolis was named the host city for the 2018 Super Bowl, the National Football League issued a 153-page list of requests for the game, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. 

The Star Tribune obtained the document and published it here. 

It includes many expensive requests and shows the NFL will control "many of the public and private aspects of the event," according to the Star Tribune. Some of the items include "residential suites at no cost in high-end hotels" and "free billboards across the Twin Cities."

TELL US: Are you excited the Super Bowl is coming to Minneapolis?

A bunch of arrogant elitists who have made a lot of money off the backs of taxpayers by buying off local politicians.

Now I see why Dayton calls it the "People's Stadium". For those who were not paying attention, it's the people are the ones paying for it.

Not all all impressed with "selling our soul" to the NFL, no matter what everyone believes will be brought to our city because of this event.

Nope, not us. Want nothing to do with the whole thing.

We have better ways to spend our dollars and many people who are not as wealthy as the NFL in need of social services, food and places to live.
