Saints Sell Out Season Tickets Again

If football is played in 2011, the renovated Superdome and its 73,000 seats will be full on gameday. Many NFL franchises are struggling with ticket sales due to the lockout, but Saints fans have made a statement. Here is more from James Varney of the Times Picayune and

“It highlights the passion of the fans, and it’s a real credit to the Saints organization and their great fans,”NFL Commisioner Roger Goodell said in an email to The Times-Picayune. “Saints fans recognize that we are working hard and committed to getting an agreement with the players, and they share our optimism that it will happen sooner rather than later if we can get back to collective bargaining.”

Saints Sell Out Season For Sixth Straight Year

The days of wearing bags and remaining in the NFL cellar actually seem like a distant memory for Saints fans. I never thought the day would come when I could write that statement, but it’s true. Ever since the emotional return to the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina on September 25th, 2006, the entire culture of New Orleans Saints football has been different. From the team to the fans, the last five years of Saints football have been indescriable by the loyal Who Dat fans that suffered through so many awful years prior.

I was proud to be in that number on September 25th, 2006. The Saints have soldout every game since that magical date, including next season. Don’t expect the waiting list for season tickets to decrease. Lockout or no lockout, Saints fans have spoken. They’re all proud to be in that number.
