I have been waiting on an update on this information for the last two days. I am planning a trip to New Orleans to go to the game this weekend, so as soon as I find a definitive answer on this from the NFL and the city of New Orleans I will post it up.
“We’re in good shape,” said Doug Thornton, vice president of SMG, the company that manages the Superdome and neighboring New Orleans Arena. “We’ve got some exterior signs ripped and things like that, downed fences and light poles blown over, but nothing major, nothing structural or nothing that would affect the interior condition of the building.”
“We are continuing to monitor the situation in close coordination with the Saints,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. “Our focus today is on the brave people of the Gulf Coast. We have great admiration for them and for the public safety and emergency personnel who are tirelessly working to protect lives and property in that region. We will make an announcement at the appropriate time about the status of the Saints’ game scheduled for Sunday in the Superdome.”
I really don’t want the two home games flip flopped which was one of the possible scenarios mentioned the other night by Adam Schefter of the NFL Network. That would give us 4 road games in a row, and a stretch of 6 out of 7.
