I honestly do not think that it will be a bad Idea.

First of all, Main land New Orleans will still do fine without the Saints playing there because it is a tourist town. It is not famous because of the Saints, it is famous because of the french quarter and Mardi Gras. It will still get its share of hotel income from the Saints. People will still stay there even if the Saints play 20 minutes away.

Second of all, It will be a huge economic boost to the rest of the city, the parts that get left in the dust. Do you honestly think that if they put the new stadium in the east that businesses and restuarants won't follow. I guarantee that it will boom if something major is put there.

Lastly, theres plenty of teams that have their stadiums in smaller communities than the team i.e. Dallas Cowboys is not exactly in Dallas. San Francisco will be building their new stadium out side of the city also and that is just to name two.

In my opinion it will be good for the rebuilding process the put the stadium there.

Well look at Chcago. The city got the voters to go alone with the shared profits idea and stuck the Bulls and Soxs out in the worse section of town. What did it do for the area? Nothing! The police incircle the stadium and keep the dumb from wondering off and getting mugged or killed. Sorry it just does not work that way. How many people hang out late at night in the East Now? That is the key question. So if not now it wont happen then. No boost will come from it except if you have a parking lot next to the stadium. They will come for the game and split.

Exclamation new stadium resolution

I don't think putting the stadium out in the east will help that much myself. Think about it, if there are no events happening at the staduim who is supporting the businesses that open up shop in the area the rest of the time. what I see is No events = Ghost Town. And also with no events = Less Police Presence. But the biggest negative to me is getting across the industrial canal (The Highrise). Face it if some lame driver sneezes the wrong way anywhere on the bridge you'll have a clusterf**k for miles. And what's worse is all the alternatives to the Highrise SUCK!!! I'd rather be downtown, park the car and walk everywhere. Just my thoughts.

First of all. Welcome to the best Saints Forum around. Secondly, that's my point and my main concern about a stadium in the New Orleans East; TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC.

My concern is it's in New Orleans East. The only logical location to put a new stadium is where the Iberville projects now stand on Canal. Of course the state of Louisiana, especially New Orleans doesn't operate on common sense.

Louisiana lawmaker: Time to go on record in support of new Saints stadium
Gannett News Service

A Louisiana lawmaker has put many of his colleagues on record in support of the state talking with the Saints about building a new stadium in eastern New Orleans.
State Rep. Austin Badon won passage recently of a House resolution supporting his stance. The resolution, which is non-binding, is pending in the Senate. But Badon said he thinks the possibility of a new stadium needs to be discussed.

Badon said his hurricane-ravaged, mostly residential district, which is about seven miles east of downtown, is the best place to invest upwards of $700 million in a stadium.

The Saints have committed to remaining until their current, incentive-rich Superdome lease runs out following the 2010 season. By then, Badon says, the Saints may become a strong candidate to move to a larger city like Los Angeles if the state has not made progress on a new stadium.

"I really hope this is not a possiblity, they look to be very serious about the East, Ijust hope the other lawmakers don't feel the same way."

That's not a good spot either, the traffic would be backed up down Canal st. all the way to the river, and don't talk about Claiborne Ave., that whole lil area would be too congested. I still say the best area is along the riverfront towards the warehouse district uptown area.
