Saints Sell Out Renovated Superdome For 2011 Season
The New Orleans Saints will be playing in a newly renovated Superdome this season IF the NFL Lockout is resolved. Prob is, the Saints have sold out there season tickets and now are in limbo on if or when the 2011 season will start!!
The New Orleans Saints have closed their books on 2011 ticket sales, and the message from the fans appears unambiguous: lockout, schmockout, they want to be in that number this season.
In the end, the team will have sold 73,000 seats in the renovated Superdome, the sixth straight season the club has sold out, continuing a string of home sellouts that began Sept. 25, 2006 -- the emotional Monday night homecoming against Atlanta the Saints enjoyed more than a year after Hurricane Katrina.
The NFL and Saints officials were overjoyed by the sales figures last week, as both outfits are wrestling with a labor situation that has seen a lockout by the owners, and that is now imperiling at least the start of the approaching season. The Saints are slated to play the Packers in Green Bay in the league's opener Sept. 8.
Do you think the Players and owners will come to an agreement and will there be a 2011 Season??
