A statement from the New Orleans Saints details the phased introduction of allowing fans in the Superdome for upcoming home games. 3,000 Saints fans will be allowed access to this weekends game and up to 15,000 fans could be allowed by late December.
Reports by NFL insiders are saying that Saints officials are meeting with LSU officials about hosting upcoming games in Baton Rouge at Tiger Stadium. These talks come as Mayor Latoya Cantrell has continued to decline Saints requests to allow fans in the Superdome.
Mayor-President Josh Guillory of Lafayette has a solution for the New Orleans Saints not being able to have fans inside of the Superdome for home games. He has offered the Saints and the NFL the option to host Saints home games in Lafayette at Cajun Field if Mayor Cantrell will not allow fans in the Superdome.
If you have ever been to a Saints home game you have heard the voice of Jerry Romig. You will hear his voice no longer as he announced his retirement . His last game will be Friday's per-season game against the Oakland Raiders. The position will be handed down to his son Mark.
