The story was broken recently that close to 1,200 season ticket holders for the New Orleans Saints may end up losing their seats. Their seats aren't being taken away so much as they're actually being eliminated for a new press box and some suites to be put into the Superdome.

Is this unfair or simply a casualty of progress?

Well, the fans losing their seats think it is nothing but wrong and they are looking for your support. The Saints' organization recently started calling the fans whose seats would be eliminated and letting them know of the situation. Said fans were also advised that they would be moved to the front of the line for the season ticket waiting list that is some 50,000 people long.

Yeah, that sucks. Just imagine the profit those ticket holders lose from selling their seats after a Superbowl win...

Good luck fans. Hopefully the organization will find a resolution beyond what's been offered...(nothing)

Re: Saints' season ticket holders losing their seats want your support

Seems wrong to me. But I am not a NOS ST holder, so what do I know? All I have is my experience as a ST holder previously in other sports and I would have been thoroughly choked if I got shifted with no alternative immediate seating offered.

Surely ST holders must be 1st for top treatment, no?

Just read that Saints are adding 3500 seats in the Dome after next season.

Where? Closer to the field??

Re: Saints' season ticket holders losing their seats want your support

I've never been a season ticket holder either, but I still see the disappointment here by those losing their tickets. I mean...I understand the thoughts of big business and progress and all that, but something can be done here right?

And 3,500 seats added?? Really??? Where??

P.S.
Saintsfan1976...I second your sig and think Myron Rolle would be a hell of a draft pick.

If those people can immediately be relocated to some nice seats and the Saints are able to add their suites, it's a win-win situation for both..

Only problem, is that Dorsey is not a FA. I'm just wishing out loud.

IF I were in charge I'd compensate with allowing Patrons to buy the new seats at the same prices they bought their original seats, season tickets holders same applys. Just because The Lombardi resides in New Orleans doesnt mean they should turn up the prices
