Baton Rouge ticket sales slow

Someone had asked about this before:

Sales haven't been as brisk in Baton Rouge, La., where the Saints are scheduled to play four home games at LSU's Tiger Stadium, which will have a seating capacity of 79,000 for NFL games. As of late Monday, unsold tickets for the first of those games, Oct. 30 against the Miami Dolphins and former LSU coach Nick Saban, totaled 59,000.

59,000 tickets left for Saban coming back? They still have 25 days to go though.

Nice to hear that Tiger fans are putting an exclamation point on Benson's relocation argument.

LSU fans are totally blind to anything but the tigers. Wierd. I knew a guy in grad school whose idea of romance was driving his girlfriend halfway across the state to propose marriage in the parking lot at tiger stadium. I figured he was just a mental defective.

Someone in Mississippi or Alabama will need to ride to the rescue if to keep the saints in the gulf.

Go San Antonio Diablos!!

59,000 that isn't bad... the other 20 will come as it gets closer. Only to watch ricky get 300 plus yard rushing against us.

I think you have it backwards. 59,000 is what's left, not 20,000. 20 appears to be what they have sold up to this point.

unsold tickets for the first of those games, Oct. 30 against the Miami Dolphins and former LSU coach Nick Saban, totaled 59,000.

THat's downright sad. I bought two tickets for each game for a whopping $96 total. That's $10 a ticket plus a small fee. thanks for the support Baton Rouge.

Baton Rouge SUCKS! They are likely to cheer for the Dolphins anyways.

If the Saints' season ticket policy wouldn't be defective, I would have tickets for the game. Unfortunatley, Ive tried every means of communication possible and have not had any feedback.

On another note, LSU fans will more than likely be cheering for Saban. Baton Rouge cheer for the Saints? Please. The Saints are not going to feel at home for this game because they have to travel and half of the stadium will be cheering for the Dolphins.

At least the Tigers are making the state proud and are playing with pride and urgency thus far this season. Who wants to pay money to see this garbage? Move the team anywhere in the world and no one will come to piss poor football like this.

why would anyone in baton rouge, san antonio, or even the north fu##ing pole want to pay money to see this sorry a$$ crap... if haslett isn't fired monday i think the revolt will be unheard of... as far as carney, just leave him in green bay... cut him before boarding the plane and block him from riding home.... aaron shouldn't play the rest of the year until he learns not to smile after throwing interception or untimely sorry passes... bouman should be stoned to death as well as conwell.... deuce should be put on a diet asap to lose about 20 lbs. and the defense should get a one way ticket to mars, cuz evidently that's where they've been for a while now b/c they definitely don't show up to the game... are we redshirting AMac? put the mother fu&*er in the game already!! what the f#$k is he going to do?! throw an interception?! for christ's sakes he can't and i stress can't do any worse than the two numbnuts playing in front of him.... for the love of all that is holy just move to san antonio, san diego, san luis obisbo, where the f@#k ever, just please, please don't come back to new orleans.... we've been through enough with katrina.
