Metrodome collapse video provides an illustration of why the Minnesota Vikings have been seeking a new stadium for over 10 years.
A nasty winter storm dumped more than 17 inches on the Twin Cities in less than 24 hours, creating concern the dome roof might collapse.
Workers scrambled to clear the fallen snow from the dome surface Saturday evening, but safety concerns brought those efforts to a close.
It didn't take long for the roof to give way.
This shocking video shows the entire roof buckling before snow pours onto the turf near the end zone.
According to the Vikings, two of the dome's triangular Teflon sections broke under the the weight of the snow.
With an extra 30 hours of rest, Brett Favre might be able to extend his consecutive games-started streak after all.
According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Favre would not have played if the game kicked off Sunday as originally scheduled.
Minnesota is calling the Hall of Fame quarterback a game-time decision.
Turning back to the sunken roof of the Metrodome, questions are beginning to swirl regarding what the future may hold.
Vikings' principal owner Zygi Wilf has made his desire for a new stadium known for years with no tangible success.
The Vikings continue to seek state funding in hopes of building a new facility.
Unless something can be worked out soon, there is a chance Wilf could at least explore options of moving his franchise elsewhere.
The Vikings' lease on the Metrodome, also known as Mall of America Field, expires following the 2011 season.
