New Orleans Saints to ?

With Katrina taking dead aim at New Orleans, the Superdome floor predicted to flood and potential catastrophic damage to their home city, where will the Saints wind up playing this year and future years?

Could we see all road games, home games in Baton Rouge or some other possibility?

And is this going to be how Los Angeles winds up with a team for 2006?

It's hard to say at this point. The first game isn't for another 3 weeks.

I think Baton Rouge is also supposed to take a big hit of the storm, since it's less than 100 miles away. But what other in-state options are there? Louisiana-Monroe? LA-Lafayette? Grambling?

I can't find specifics as to the capacities of their fields, but other than LSU, I don't think there's another 70,000+ stadium in Louisiana.

Other options could be the Astrodome (it's vacant), or maybe even the Alamodome in San Antonio. Or eastward to Mississippi and Alabama. Any of those options could at least be within a few hours' drive (except San Antonio) of Louisiana.

Sheesh. Talk about having my mind elsewhere.

When I first read this, I thought uozzim wrote, "With Katarina Witt taking dead aim at New Orleans. ..."

And I'm thinking, "What's Katarina Witt doing with New Orleans?"

Oh well. But it's not bad when you have reason to think of Katarina Witt.

This could be what sends the Saints to LA for good, especially if the city is damaged beyond anyone's worst fears.

It really wasn't that hard to read.

could they play in shreveport,La. Isn't the Independance Bowl a pretty big stadium.

I honestly have to say that anywhere Louisiana and east to Alabama is out of the question, Houston or San Antonio sound like the best options to me. I hope a road season is out of the question too.

I just saw a picture of the Superdome on one of the news channels showing 2 holes in the roof. They are relativly small, and are just leaking water. Other than the roof, the dome itself can handle up to 200mph winds.
