I know in San Antono the Falcons game and the Lions game are pretty much sold out, but the Bills game still has seats available. I have no idea about Baton Rouge though. I would like to know how that is going as well. Good query.

According to the Saints, there are still roughly 19,000 tickets available for the Buffalo game, 7,000 for an Oct. 16 game against the Atlanta Falcons and 40,000 for a Dec. 24 game against the Detroit Lions.
Just pointing out that San Antonio has a long way to go before selling out any of these games. The Falcons game is usually the only game of the year that can be guaranteed to sell out the superdome and they haven't done it yet in the Alamodome. They will, but haven't yet. It looks to me that all those San Antonio Fortune 500 comanies are going to have to pony up some cash in order to sell out the other 2 games - especially the way the team is playing right now. Benson just might be surprised to find out that geography IS less important than on field performance in regards to the selling of tickets.

These numbers were as of Wednesday.

Rita halts ticket sales for Saints' games at LSU

Tiger Stadium game packages on sale Monday

The New Orleans Saints' coaches and players were able to dodge Hurricane Rita in their temporary home of San Antonio, but the same can't be said for members of the team's marketing and ticket staff in Baton Rouge.
The first day of the team's ticket sales for the four games to be played in Tiger Stadium was cut short Friday by the approach of Rita, and the staff was still without electricity Saturday when they returned to their office to continue preparing for the sale of single-game tickets on Monday.

Saints 4-Packs, which include tickets for all four games set for Tiger Stadium, went on sale via the Internet only on Friday morning. All other tickets will be available on Monday at 10 a.m., said Jake Schneider, the team's manager of regional sales and business developments.

Because of the storm and the loss of power in the office, Schneider said it wasn't possible to tell how many tickets were sold Friday. He stressed that season-ticket holders can exchange their tickets, if they wish, for games to be played at LSU against Miami (Oct. 30), Chicago (Nov. 6), Tampa Bay (Dec. 4) and Carolina (Dec. 18 )

"We're trying to make sure season-ticket holders aren't going online to buy tickets," Schneider said. "We have held back an allotment for our fans who have season tickets already, and they can be exchanged for comparable seating in Tiger Stadium."

Not as long as you think. They sold 50,000 tickets the first day then another 30,000 the next the Saints ticket office reported, so I don't know how accurate those numbers are. But the 19,000 figure for the Buffalo game I heard is about right, although it was more like 17,000, but that's still around the same ballpark. And I agree, on the field performance doesn't care where you are, if you are losing, the way we are losing, it will be hard to drum up support anywhere. I would not be surprised if they didn't sell any more tickets to any of these games We have seen some pityful performances as of late.
