Put a few decent restaurants in there for crying out loud. We have some of the best food in the world but food choices are limited. Add all your sky boxes, sports bars and maybe even a retractable roof hole.
It was gutted in 2006. Completely down to the bare shell. Everything in there is new since then including the huge video boards. What they are (and have been) doing is keeping it up to date. It isn't bandaids.

Dallas, Minny, and soon LA are seeing super feedback on the standing room only sections and floor-level boxes, so if we're to host SuperBowls, the host committee has got to be able to check-off the same boxes...

Just not a fan of corporate welfare from taxpayer dollars...

Looks like we're only covering about 20% of the total and if that means keeping the Saints around an additional ten years I have no issue with that. Besides, the Dome brings in lots of dollars outside of the NFL every year.
