Re: Dec. 17th 1:00 pm EST Washington @ New Orleans

Just to kind of give everyone an update, this was posted yesterday, as well as a report on the NFL network last night.
If you really want to go to this event, I would suggest you not wait on our group tickets, and get your tickets ASAP.
While I am very happy for New Orleans, I feel kind of bad the way things have turned out.


Saints set franchise record for season-ticket sales
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2448831

METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have set a franchise record for season-ticket sales, four months before making their post-Hurricane Katrina return to the Superdome.
The Saints, who spent last season in San Antonio after Katrina flooded the city and severely damaged the Superdome, have sold 54,969 season tickets, surpassing the previous record of 53,728 set in August 2003.
Owner Tom Benson said Wednesday that the Saints received "a spike" in ticket sales after drafting Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush last month, but they were already on a record pace.
"I want to thank the devoted and loyal fans who have shown tremendous support for the New Orleans Saints," Benson said. "This is a great day for the Saints and the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. To sell a record number of tickets four months before our first game is unbelievable."
The population of New Orleans remains less than half of what it was before the storm hit Aug. 29.
"It's truly inspirational to see these fans rally around the team and the city," Benson said. "We knew the fans were there, but we didn't know whether they would be able to be involved with buying tickets or not.
"People talk about there only being 100,000 or so back, but a lot of them are just 30 miles or so up the road and they're back buying tickets."
The capacity of the repaired Superdome, which is scheduled to reopen Sept. 25 when the Saints play the Atlanta Falcons, will be 65,000, leaving about 10,000 more seats to sell.
The team's return after a season-long absence, hiring new coach Sean Payton, drafting Bush and the signing of free-agent quarterback Drew Brees generated significant enthusiasm among fans.
Despite the increase in season ticket sales, executive vice president of administration Rita Benson LeBlanc said the team has sold 81 of the 137 suites in the Superdome, and Tom Benson said the sale of corporate sponsorships has been disappointing but improving.
NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue has made several visits to the region since the Saints returned in January. On Feb. 14, Tagliabue and Benson met with a group of 27 area business leaders who pledged to help sell tickets, suites and sponsorships.
"The commissioner and I have been very disappointed with the reaction of the business community," Benson said. "But their support is coming. A lot of businesses are having problems and it's been very difficult for them to make commitments. We're looking forward to them doing their part."
New Orleans is nearing a decision on where to hold training camp. The Saints appear to be leaning toward Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., where the team will play one of its "home" preseason games while the Superdome is being repaired. The other will be in Shreveport, La.

I LOVE the fact that my cousin (a huge Skins fan) is going to law school in NO this fall. I'll check with some other people to see how many of us are gonna need tickets.

We were told today that there will be NO group tickets sales for the New Orleans/Washington Redskin game.
We will still be in New Orleans, and we will be planning events, as well as a Redskin fan tailgate party, however if you want to attend this game, I suggest you act fast and get tickets to this game.
Wish I had some better news for everyone.
You can reach their ticket office at 504-731-1871.

I was able to obtain 18 tickets for this game in the endzone, or which I have 5 or 6 remaining depending on other people following through. I know I have 5 for sure. If you are interested in going, and sitting with other hard core fans like yourself, the first person/persons to PM me will get the contact info. Tickets are $75 each, and we are in the section closest to the ground.
