Sweet. Every time I see a Mercedes I think about them firing the head guy promoting the Super dome to the company immediately after the deal was done. Maybe we weren't wholesome enough for them. That doesn't seem to be the case though since Mercedes is only represented by Atlanta now.

It was a ten year deal. Mercedes got their money's worth out of it. Corporate sponsorships grow stale over time.

General Motors Superdome?

Saints have been touted as an economic catalyst in the past...

Maybe relocate, expand Chevy Trucks to North Louisiana, again?

Unknowns about the capacity future and such. They are doing their due diligence. It may be the stadium management themselves looking for the concrete deal.
