re: Saints, state of Louisiana closing in on lease extension/major Superdome renovation
Idiot/rude/morons will continue to block all concourses, no matter how wide they're built ! They stop to chat/play on phone/gawk in the MIDDLE of aisles, with no regard to their fellow fans who simply want to get to their seats/rest-rooms/concessions w/out groups of people hindering their 'travels' !
Right lane/Left lane..don't stop in the middle = pretty simple !

I don’t really get these. Granted, I’ve never sat in one, and every new stadium is putting them in. Seems like the view would be terrible and blocked half the time.

It’s probably because the people sitting in them don’t care about the game unfortunately

hy would you want one? To have something shiny and new? The Superdome is in a perfect location and renovations and upgrades make more sense than tearing it down. The building is iconic and it doesn't make much sense to go new.


Never said I wanted a new one

Why? That is hideous. I go to the games to watch the game, not an oversized screen that the owner needs to somehow justify himself.

I was hoping they were going to try to incorporate some type of view or natural light from inside the stadium


When they initially started putting out articles about a major dome renovation, there was mention of some project to let natural light in. The OPs article says initial costs of the renovation were scaled back so that might have been something that got the axe.

Cutting holes in that roof not a good idea.

Yeauright
I came to post the same.

I'd like some glass windows maybe around the bulkheads or some slots on the roof.

The Dome is sacred ground and unique. Just renovate and save money.

From the project summaries I've read, it doesn't feel like a nearly half billion dollar renovation.

Relocating the food prep area, widening concourses, putting in a SRO area and field level suites. That feels somewhat light in substance for $450 million. That price doesn't include replacing the worn out multi colored terrace level seats, removing any of the outdoor ramps etc.

Ugh ! Big screen a bad idea. I have no desire to go back to Jerry world because of it. You can’t help but end up watching the game on the TV. I can do that at the local watering hole or home. Ms. B doesn’t have Jerry’s ego, thank the Lord.

Who doesn't like staring at the ceiling during games lol.

Cutting holes in ones roof eventually leads to leaks.

The dome is in a lawsuit with the company who installed the roof. The roof was supposed to not grow mold or whatever is up there. Attorneys told them not to clean it until the matter is resolved.
