It wouldn't last... I have said it before, there may have been like 68,000 people at their first game in the Alamodome, but I have yet to meet one person who paid to be there. I was in the FRONT ROW and didn't pay a damn dime.

Quoting MSYtristar (Reply 2): Probably not going to happen. If they go anywere, it would be L.A
The NFL announcement of last week I took as a not too subtle reference on the subject....
The Saints and the NFL will eventually return to LA, but not Louisiana; the other "LA"; Los Angeles.
Sad but true.

It was reported in today's local paper that each of the last three homes games, 2 of which are in Baton Rouge, the other in San Antonio, has only sold roughly 27,500 seats. Sounds like the interest is wearing off in San Antonio..........that and the fact that the class team of that town, the Spurs, are off and running and primed to win another NBA title.
Btw, Steve, tell me you're not paying Letterman's writers for your top 10 list .
#7 was hilarious, btw. And 2 and 3 had me on the floor, as well.
