Minnesota's pro football team just announced that they won't use bird-safe glass on its new window-heavy stadium. Here's what you need to know about the decision.

What do you expect from football? They don't have the common sense to protect their own brains, do you think they care about birds?
Birds are a crucial, and beautiful, part of the entire ecosystem. Please treat them with respect.
Do the right thing, a million dollars is a drop in the bucket to you and remember, your games are televised, it won't take long to capture the death of perhaps a rare bird on national TV one Sunday and then you're going to have protests and it will be all over the news and in the papers and social media....avoid the problems now, spend the damn money.
Utterly incomprehensible, and a sign of what is wrong with our world when our decision-makers show blatant disregard for protecting our common home and the creatures we share it with in pursuit of short-term glory. This is an opportunity for them to make a decision that will have a long-term positive impact....all it takes is for someone with guts to take a stand for what they know is right.....
Be ashamed, but do not think that those 1200 t.v. are just a drop in the bucket.On a lot home t.v.s, more will see the pictures of your collection of dead birds, and I believe the public will up roar!
coming on minnesota that is just awful . you need to care about the birds and the environment .
that is awful. shows they don't care about the birds
Hmm. Women and meds. .. One huge mess online.
As with countless others, I pray that you take into consideration, not just the natural devestation you will have singlehandedly caused if you do not reconsider your decision to not to use the bird-safe glass, but you will have shown your family, your children, their children, the fans, the state of Minnesota and the American public, the truth behind your very being -- a dark soul, with blatant disregard for life and its future. Your lack of morality and love for money over what is good and right, will bring you no peace in this life, nor in the next.
