Superdome could be history!?

I could see this coming.

Just the thought of 10,000 people living there for 3 days with no sewage gives me the shivers. 8-o

So if the superdome goes down the toilet than what for the Saints? Would they simply move to another city like the Baltimore Colts or the Titans from Houston? Unlike those teams which moved for money and audience and ratings and stuff. Saints move would be a forced one which I think would feel odd I don't know why. Also if they do move what lucky city would they move to? I know this is all a longshot at this point but I love predicting the distant future.

This could be a financial catastrophe for the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana in the long term.

-The Saints would almost surely leave
-What about the Sugar Bowl? The Super Bowl Rotation?

We're talkin' about billions in lost revenue to an economy that Katrina has already brought to its knees.

If it has to be torn down, It has to be torn down. However, they better have a plan to build some sort of new stadium, or the Louisiana Economy is just going to get salt rubbed in its already gaping wound.

Last rumor I heard was they were moving to San Antonio.

There was a thread here on it too I believe.

Who knows.

I know the Sugar Bowl is hosed this year along with NFL, but after things settle down, who knows.

The money lost from lack of supder dome revenue is neglible compared to what is being lost from the ports being closed and toursim in general. That aside, IF they rebuild new orleans, im sure a stadium will come too.

Hmm, the guy who runs the Superdome says this is idiotic and the building is structurally stable.

They've already had the financial catastrophe and the lost revenue from the Saints is a drop in the bucket. There are discussions starting now on what to do with New Orleans - some are saying leave the lower-lying areas underwater and keep only the historic areas. There is a very good chance NO will never be the same. Many of the people who have left will never come back.

If NO is to be built with federal money with everybody's taxes, a stadium should be low priority. Maybe this sounds harsh, but people are talking like there is an endless flow of money. Even if it were to be restored, a levee system adequate to protect against another class 4 hurricane is thought to take 30 years to complete. We should not rebuild a city only to put it in harm's way again.

I know the Saints owner isn't very popular, but he needs to do what it takes to keep his franchise alive because he may not have a New Orleans to go back to.

I think im correct in saying that the city partly funded the team to begin with. So it may have been a loss leader anyway.

I would like to see the pics of the damage to the dome, I cant believe its enough to warrant tearing it down.
