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

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Pretty cool. If it had to be named something, I'm glad it's being named for a great car company. Plus, might be some cool Mercedes fan promotions like they do here in Dallas with the American Airlines Center....

If we absolutely had to have the naming rights sold then I wanted to have an American brand I could be proud of. Something like The Harley Super Dome. If we can't have an American sponsor then I am happy that Mercedez is known for quality. It will always be the Super Dome to me.

I'm all for supporting local/national businesses, but would you really prefer f.e. Walmart Superdome to MB Superdome just because one is an American business, but with very shady practices?

For anyone that hate this name or the idea...

Remember this?:



Guess what brand of car this is our coach is carrying that Lombardi Trophy through his roof in?

1 clue, they just put their name on the Superdome.

Nope! American products just don't have quality built in anymore. You make a good point.

Mercedes Manufacturing Plant in Alabama, USA

Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Mercedes manufacturing facility where the M-Class, the R-Class, and the GL-Class are built.

Everything is under one roof… from Body, Paint, and Assembly shops to Administration and Shipping. This unity helps to emphasize the importance of teamwork and to foster team member communication and facilitate the consistent, incomparable quality inherent in the assembly of all Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

To FinSaint, I can't quote your reply as its too damned long but I have lived in Germany. And while they may have some leagues and 3 divisions of American Football there, the general population of Germany doesn't give a rats furry rear end about American Football. And if anybody is spewing hate and ignorance its you. You're the one resorting to classless name calling tactics, not me. Go crawl back under from the rock from which you came.
