It's been an absolute nightmare getting into the Dome all year, this year. The "Fest Security" people in those yellow shirts are just turrible. They must think it's Jazz Fest, where people are going to trickle in all day long -- they literally seem to have NO IDEA that 70,000 people are going to show up on Sunday mornings and want to get in to the game for kickoff. Not enough lines, not enough people, terrible organization and management, and the security people seem to have NO supervisors at all; they seem to have no higher up people to go around and monitor things, supervise their workers, address problems, or adjust situations to keep things moving. It's a total mess.

And worst of all, the huge hassle puts the PAYING FANS in a foul mood -- people should be backslapping strangers, high fiving and shouting "Who Dat!" at each other, psyched for the game, but inevitably a lot of folks wind up feeling kinda angry and stressed out, by going through this POORLY MANAGED gauntlet.

I bumped into somebody I knew outside the Dome, a couple of games ago, and I couldn't even say anything more than "Hi" to him or stop to visit -- because I was in this stupid logjam of people, I knew if I stopped and talked, I would never get in to the game for kickoff. It blows.

A good 'heads up' for out-of-town guys like me.

Thanks,

Well written. You need to get this to the Saints and to the Times-Picayune
