Re: New Stadium?

I was thinking the same thing. If ever there was a time, to discuss a new stadium, that time is now. I didn't know that a new lease was signed. Especially for that long! With all this team has done for LA, and N.O., I think they more than deserve it. Benson should just build it on his own. Although if he does, ticket prices will go through the roof. Which who knows, they might do that already.

stpaul i would agree,would love to see something up against the mississippi river. but i don't think benson has jerry money. his can opener stadium was a 1 billion dollar job two years ago, benson's would be 1.5 billion. i would love a new place not far from the dome. or put it in the same place. but this debate won't come up till 2025 when i probably can't walk no more so, they'll need more handi-cap seating areas lol.

Re: New Stadium?

No place to put a new stadium that makes sense and if they build a new one get ready to pay a PSL.

Re: New Stadium?

Upgrades were made post-Katrina to bring the Dome into the millennium.

What' so wrong with "one of the toughest places to play in the NFL"?

Nothing.

Its in a great location. It's loud. It has seats, food, drinks, bathrooms, etc...

I don't see the need.
