It's Official, The Louisiana Superdome will now be "Mercedes-Benz Superdome"

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I thought it was funny that the funeral of Archbishop Hannan took second fiddle to the re-naming of the Superdome. New Orleans loves their Saints....

I watched the Rams-Pats Super Bowl in Germany and I can tell you there were a lot of Germans who saw it and were talking about it. Tom Nuetten (Rams) speaks German and they had interviews with him that people could understand. There are lots non-Americans who follow the NFL.

IMO we could do a lot worse than partnering with a company known for being a premium brand.

Here is how I feel about.

I used to be a big NASCAR guy until NASCAR killed NASCAR. Anyway, LOWES Home Improvement bought the naming rights to Charlotte Motor Speedway and renamed it to LOWES Speedway. Well, after a couple of years of fans and even announcers calling it Charlotte MS instead of LOWES MS.... even after LOWES wrote a memorandum to NASCAR telling them that NASCAR and it's T.V. commentators to stop using the name Charlotte and ONLY use the name LOWES.....it is now called Charlotte again.

I don't care what some company names the Dome. It will always be the Louisiana Super Dome. So who cares. If it helps the team in some way...do it.

I am sure the late Dave Dixon would have had something to say about this deal, and probably nothing too kind at that.

The name is great with me.. i'll still call it Superdome, im glad they left "Superdome on it" for the Locals to say it.. But i don't see any problem with it at all.. especially since this is a VERY nice Premium car brand not to mention this German Car company has MOOONNNNNEYYY, Im thinking a lot of new fancy and futuristic upgrades are in the works and finally finishing the Dome roof which is still incomplete.

If the contract extends through the life of the Superdome which is 2015 or 2020, i don't think we'll have a problem getting a New stadium built in the city.

Well, it beats the Enzyte SuperDome or the Go-Daddy SuperDome or the Oprah Winfrey Channel Network SuperDome.

Good thing all that money goes to the Saints instead of our pisspoor state.
