The Gold Standard

ya probably have seen this in TP but as i have said, there is a reason why benson has been voted the head of the finance commitee for the nfl owners-

Connick, onetime secretary-treasurer of the Superdome Commission, credits Benson to coming up with what he calls "the Gold Standard" of stadium-related contracts.

"I'm not talking about the annual subsidies the Saints began receiving from the state, the $12.5 million in 2002 that's now at $15 million," Connick said. "I'm talking about such items as concessions, parking, advertising, suite fees, tour fees, a marketing fund, game-day staffing, all stadium-related. In the Metrodome the Vikings were essentially second-class citizens. They either derived no revenue in some areas or had to share other revenue with the Twins.
