Is the Arena Bowl in N.O. a test??

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It's not the Superbowl, but is it a start ? We would be naieve to think that the NFL won't be watching every move by the city during the week of the July 29th Arena Bowl. Is this a test ...

Thumbs up Is the Arena Bowl in N.O. a test??

It's not the Superbowl, but is it a start? We would be naieve to think that the NFL won't be watching every move by the city during the week of the July 29th Arena Bowl.

Is this a test for New Orleans as a host city?

If the city can host this event well and without incident, will that move us up in the eyes of the Superbowl committee?

I've heard a lot about moving the draft, getting a new stadium an ultimately, hosting another Superbowl.... Your thoughts on what the Arena Bowl means for the city's future chances......

little or no effect.

The SB would bring in 8-10 times more people than the Arena Bowl. A better 'test' was last years's MNF game with ATL- sellout, thousands more in the streets, media circus.

I think the Dome will host one more SB before a new stadium is built
