Its not like they haven't done it before.
Correct. And I recall that didn't work out too well for the team.

Regardless of the 1 hour proximity -- it's a road game. So our team, if it wants to play in front of fans, will have road games for the rest of the season.

It may seem easy -- but logistically and for the players -- it's a road game.

A one hour drive by bus.
Except the times when it's two hours, lol. I've driven from Metairie to Baton Rouge regularly enough to know that I have no idea how long that trip will take on any given day, especially if Baton Rouge is having a broken arse traffic day.

It's about saving lives bro.
It's absolutely not about that. When the question arose in early september she flat out said that in order to host a game that the state would need to give her a bigger share of federal dollars. When the question arose again we had the infamous phase 2 declaration. Now that it's not phase 2 she's tried to hide behind the retractable roof argument which quickly backfired. She has expressed zero objective metrics by which to decide whether we can host fans. This is all about political leverage at the expense of the citizens who need help the most. As someone who works in the service industry, I'm disgusted and beyond angry. She needs to get out of the way and go back to California to play out her benevolent dictator fantasies where they are wanted.

This mayor sucks . I guess she's ok with people losing their jobs.
She doesn't care about the city which is weird because she will have no legacy when she leaves. She grew up in California and runs this place like she never left there.
It's funny because I've seen these type of comments said before just on a national level. Cantrell for whatever reason seems hell-bent on making sure that she serves one term as Mayor. I don't think she realizes that she doesn't enjoy the benefit of 40% of New Orleans supporting her no matter what she does. This has been a colossal PR failure by Cantrell.

No... A roof does nothing at 25% capacity.

Especially, when a dome must have anti-bioweapon filtration system.

Even then... Viruses don't rise up out towards the atmosphere without wind. That's just absurd.
The Superdome filtration system, has the ability to detect and to filter out anthrax. It is very high tech and sophisticated.

Well said, very well said! She will loosen up in November, depending on certain events. It is a dangerous game she is playing, that I will not get into on specifics. But just watch a month from now.

Bottom line is. She has and continues to refuse to set a benchmark for the 25% number of fans. She talks in riddles and generalities. She is also going against all of medical metrics presented to her, by medical professionals and not from some jack leg politician.

So... if this will lead to her being one and done, why not sit back and let it happen?

If I wanted someone gone and I was certain their actions would achieve that, I wouldn't be campaigning for them to change course.

Reports on the news said LSU is willing. Fans have to adhere to LSUs rule of face masks and distancing. Baton Rouge’s Mayor is all for the saints playing at Tiger stadium.

My issues would be with the naming rights. Would MB want money back due to less exposure? I wonder if there is something in the contract
I don't live in Louisiana but I've been to that dome twice and I've loved the experience being around all my friends (All you Saints fans) but if MB wanted some money back I'd say the Mayor deserves that backlash. Being that this is MB last season with naming rights cause they chose Atlanta over New Orleans they may not even care, then again, money talks.

The Saints' Twitter tweet is right. In all of the instances cited, the roofs were closed. Cantrell is essentially arguing that it's safe to ride in a car with a closed sunroof but not in a car without a sunroof.

And even if Atlanta, for instance, opened the roof of its stadium, how would that hole in the ceiling make it any less likely that COVID isn't spread in the stands? Completely open air stadiums--sure.

I'm willing to bet SR donation money before the Saints even play 2 more games that the entire NFL is struggling to continue and the argument for fans seems really stupid. The 2nd wave is about to hit like a tsunami and the death rates as well as hospitalization rates are about to go up due to the loss of UV bombardment during the fall and winter months.

If I'm the NFL I would want to reduce as many exposure points as possible to the players to try and make the season last as long as possible. The last thing I would want is one of 15k fans to spread covid to the guy doing security who spreads it to someone else in the organization and suddenly dealing with an outbreak. 15k fans for the rest of the season wont even make as much money as 1 game of TV contract money.

90% of the board is deathly afraid Of the virus.

But 100% of you think it’s a joke they close the dome.... Ok

And don’t even mention “safe social practices” 😂.
