Sell the naming rights to the dome

We have discussed alot of money issues over the last few months, and I thought that this would be a good question for a poll. If the state of Louisiana could sell the naming rights to the superdome, say McDonald's, Wal Mart, or maybe Hunt's Ketchup, would you be ok with it? I mean, this is the "nature" of business right?

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

I appreciate it man. Another victim of corporate minds. It's all good I got a new job. Start tomorrow.

Back to the subject though, and this is purely hypothetical, but so was 3 Rivers Stadium, and Candlestick park. Both names changed due to the money that was made off of the sale.

This poll, in my mind is really a question of, "How far does business ethics go with some of our fans?" It's ok to give up a player, or not re-sign him, because it saves us money to be spent elsewhere for the team, but it's not ok to sell a name, that could mean millions of dollars for the state. Plus possible ticket price decreases, and possible rennovations on the dome itself.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

The Saints have very little chance at changing the name of the Super Dome. It's been around since 1975. Corporate sponsors are smart enough to know it will always be the Super Dome. That is why the Saints have zero chance at cashing in on this issue.

Re: Sell the naming rights to the dome

If it's going to generate more revenue for our team enabling us to continue to acquire top notch talent, why not?

Once again, these were all things said before the 3 Rivers became Heinz Field, and Candlestick became Monster Park, and whatever other names it's had. I think it's been changed like three times.

And if I'm wrong, please correct me, but doesn't the State of Louisiana technically own the superdome? I'm sure concessions would have to made to the Saints for the deal to happen, but the sale would actually benefit Louisiana citizens more than it would the team.

Oh yeah, and the Niners have won 5 superbowls, have one of the most historical franchises in NFL history. Steelers have 6 championships, plus probably the strongest fan base in the world. Also very historical.
