I know Verizon is a big sponsor but I haven't heard that. That would be great financial news for the franchise.

if you are referring to what was said on the tv, he said the verizon zone, which is part of their commercial slogan. i thought he said dome at first as well.

I'm torn here. In a way its great finacially for the Saints. However I must say one thing I loved about our Dome is we never sold out. I mean Bank of America Stadium, Monster Park. To me its about the Original Candlestick Park, Raymond James Stadium, Ralph Wilson Stadium. Never forgetting The Louisiana Superdome. I've always loved that fact.

It's not for a lack of trying. The state commission that oversees the Dome has been trying for YEARS to sell naming rights. The main tenant's questionable long-term state (read: the Saints-to-L.A. rumors) hempared things, thena long term deal gets worked out, but now the economy is in the tank and no company is going to waste its CEOs' bonuses on naming rights.

I'm guessing the OP mis-heard or mis-understood something. This would have been a huge deal, with a huge announcement, if it was real.

No offense, but as much money as Taxpayers contribute to the Saints...I like the Louisiana Superdome! I understand the whole naming rights funding though....but still.

This. And before that the New Orleans Superdome was fine with me.
