Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

Technically Three Rivers was torn down and the new stadium was always called Heinz Field

As for the Superdome, why not? I really don't see the downside. NOBODY calls a stadium that has had a name change by the new name anyway. I seriously believe it is the biggest waste of advertising dollars possible.

So if someone wants to dump a couple mil into the NO/LA economy and pay for a new paint job, let 'em.

The Community Coffee Dome. Build a big handle on the side of it and paint it to look like a coffee cup.

How far is someone willing to go with this?

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

I'll try to say this politely......Not only NO but HELL NO!!! It has always been the Louisiana Super Dome and always will be to me. I could learn to like the Gulf Coast New Orleans Saints if that came to pass.

But with my luck Tampax, Massengill or Midol would win the bid that would change the charisma.

I can hear it now "Welcome to tonight's game with The Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints hosting the Cleveland Browns in the recently
renovated Preparation H Super Dome."
..................................... ..........................
If all else fails keep drinking heavily.

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

I don't think they can sell it because it has been known as "Superdome" forever and it's a brand name larger than products attached to it. Microsoft considered naming rights before Katrina. Superdome brand is too well known and people would still call it "The Superdome" before "Microsoft Superdome" or "Tabasco Field" etc.
