Renovated Superdome can serve Saints well, consultants say

By BRETT MARTEL
Associated Press Writer
NEW ORLEANS
A $168 million renovation of the Louisiana Superdome could provide seating and amenities comparable to top new NFL stadiums and give the New Orleans Saints a strong incentive to stay in Louisiana, consultants told a state panel Thursday.

But the consultants told the Superdome Commission that satisfying the Saints demands would require some sort of new tax that would need to generate anywhere between $8.4 million and $12.7 million per year, depending on what the Saints are willing to contribute.



For the rest of the story..........

I loved this part..

"Good team performance and good management would give (the Saints) the opportunity to do that," Barrett said.

To that, several politicians in attendance smiled and shook their heads, as if reacting to a joke.
