    I've seen enough of Buffalo. Might drive over for the falcons. When will the tickets go on sale?

    those should all be outstanding games, lets see if San Antonio can step up to the plate and sell out. word has it that LA wants nothing to do with the Saints and that San Antonio is their best option, lets hope it works that would give Texas three professional football teams :trophy:

    I agree... but I hope it wouldn't be the S.A. Saints.. uggh.. but it is a time to show the NFL that S.A. is ready for a franchise. Isn't that how the Spurs came to S.A. one of those old ABA teams or something came in and played a few games in S.A. and the response was pretty good. so the basketball team moved to san antonio (and the ABA) and became the spurs?

    maybe I was dreaming of that,but thought I heard it.

    Especially after all this that happened, SA has alot of respect for the Saints...Including me...Its horrible having your city destroyed and then having to basically play on the road throughtout the season and be surrounded by unfamiliar ppl instead of your own fans....How mentally and emotionally draining it has to be on them....If they come to SA, i will get season tickets....But right now, these guys can't even fanthom moving under another city's name.....Los Angeles doesn't deserve them, SA would embracess and accept them just like the Spurs..... In fact, they are already considered part of our SA family..... :love: :grouphug:

    Is there going to be some confusion with the ticket sales if present holders of Saint season tickets show up for the games?
    Wouldn't they have preference over seats? Just curious how they are going to handle this.

    Four of us were going to New Orleans for Saints v Lions Christmas Eve, now it looks like we will be heading west. Been kinda slow getting my tickets exchanged for the Alamodome but I still expect to. Thought they would give ticket holders a little head start but they didn't, when I called the 800 number yesterday they said the procedure hasn't been established yet for swapping out tickets but they went on sale to the public Wednesday. Was hoping to upgrade without having to shell out more bucks but the way it is set up anyone with tickets should buy new ones and then deal with reimbursement for the original purchase. It's messed up fo' sure.

    San Antonio named after "Saint" Anthony. San Antonio Saints

    Only makes sense.

    San Antonio already needs a new stadium. Alamo-barn is obsolete!

    Parking lot sucks, nowhere to tailgate...

    Probably so. I'm sure many have more important things going on in their lives right now anyway. I do know a couple Saint fans that would love to go.. They have tickets in their homes that are still water logged.

    Hope they have better feelings playing in SA.

    Horn: "NFL made `mockery' of Saints for playing at Meadowlands"

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Receiver Joe Horn criticized the NFL on Wednesday for forcing the Hurricane Katrina-displaced New Orleans Saints to play their home-opener at the Meadowlands. ``Man, let me tell you something, the Saints aren't going to be the first team that they made a mockery of, and we will not be the last team that they make a mockery of,'' Horn said in a conference call with Buffalo-area reporters. Horn spoke as New Orleans (1-2) prepares to host Buffalo (1-2) on Sunday in what will be the Saints' first game at their new temporary home, San Antonio's Alamodome. The Saints will play three games at San Antonio and four other home games at LSU.
