Perhaps the Texans will be a contender to actually play in that game by then.

Jerry Jones and Paul Tagliabue said at the earliest 2011. A Superbowl in Dallas would be so awesome.

I think we are a lock...the other one's amenities are nowhere near ours.

Super Bowl XXXIX, Jacksonville, Fla., Feb. 6, 2005


Super Bowl XL, Detroit, Mich., Feb. 5, 2006


Super Bowl XLI, Miami, Fla., 2007

Super Bowl XLII, Glendale, Ariz., 2008



I don't see them awarding the Super Bowl to Miami two out of three years, and I've heard that the NFL was not impressed with Atlanta the two years they had the Super Bowl there. I figure our only challenge would be Tampa who hosted Super Bowl XXXV.

No what it confirms is that the league (a) doesn't like uncertainty, i.e. the chance that a team might not have a home where the SB is and (b) that they want a team in NO and are giving the Saints a bargaining stick--keep us here or you will never get a SB again.

And it is interesting to see that they will have had at least 8 Super Bowls without one bieng in New Orleans.

Previous New Orleans Super Bowls:

2002 Super Bowl XXXVI
1997 Super Bowl XXXI
1990 Super Bowl XXIV
1986 Super Bowl XX
1981 Super Bowl XV
1978 Super Bowl XII
1975 Super Bowl IX
1972 Super Bowl XI
1970 Super Bowl IV

The longest previous span was 6 Super Bowls (25-30) between New Orleans games.

This could be the NFL's way to encourage the city and state to give in to the Superdome improvements by saying the Superdome is no longer good enough for the Super Bowl, or the NFL's way to encourage the Saints to move to Los Angeles. Take your pick.

My guess is we are likely the leading candidate for the 2009 Super Bowl which will be great.

Default Houston a finalist for Superbowl XLIII

Found this article on NFL.com

(Dec. 9, 2004) -- At a league meeting in Atlanta on Dec. 8, the NFL's Super Bowl Committee recommended four cities as finalists for Super Bowl XLIII in February of 2009.

The finalists are Atlanta, Houston, Miami and Tampa Bay. One of those four cities will be named as the host at a meeting of league owners in May 2005.

For the first time, this year's game will be played at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla. Over the next three years, the Super Bowl will take place in Detroit (2006 -- Super Bowl XL), Miami (2007 -- Super Bowl XLI) and Arizona (2008 -- Super Bowl XLII).

Other cities who have hosted a Super Bowl: New Orleans (9: Tulane Stadium 3, Louisiana Superdome 6); Miami (8 times: Orange Bowl 5, Pro Player Stadium [formerly Joe Robbie Stadium] 3); Los Angeles (7: Los Angeles Coliseum 2, Rose Bowl 5); Tampa Bay (3); San Diego (3); Atlanta (2); Houston (2); Arizona (1); Detroit (1); Minneapolis (1); Stanford (1).


Looks like we did a great job with the last one, and are on the track to have another. Nice job Houston!

They'll save a lot of trees when the Saints move to L.A.

Since their games will be played in a stadium that's three quarters empty fewer people will need paper bags to cover their faces than in New Orleans.

And I like the name Saints too. Let them keep it unless of course New Orleans has an issue with it and can find a way to hang onto the name ala Cleveland and the Browns. If not then it fits L.A. perfectly. Right now they've got the Lakers, Clippers, and Dodgers out there and every one of those names came from somewhere else without being changed once the team arrived in L.A. so keeping "Saints" fits. It just seems natural.

I think any connection between the name and the city's "hispanic catholic origins" though is a bad thing. It actually might make the Saints look like they belong there which is something that none of the other teams have to worry about.

But if money talks, even saints walk.

If i compare Reliant Stadiu and the Georgia Dome, you actually would be the winner. If it comes to the surrounding city it's close. I'm not sure if the NFL officials disliked the two Bowls in Atlanta. Did they?
