BATON ROUGE -- Negotiators for the state and the New Orleans Saints wrapped up their first round of closed-door talks Wednesday without resolving any of the thorny issues standing in the way of keeping the football team in the Superdome through 2025.
Dome spokesman Bill Curl said the two sides met privately Tuesday and Wednesday for a total of seven hours but no major issues were resolved.
"No firm timetable has been set for the conclusion of negotiations," Curl said. "Both sides have expressed the desire to reach a prompt conclusion. . . . Numerous substantive issues were addressed."
