Hornets in the Superdome?

Published: January 30, 2008

I stumbled across this blog today, where an interesting idea be brewing…

"My challenge to Mr Shinn: Have one game a year in the Superdome, let it count toward the average attendance benchmark, and I'll buy two season tickets."

Hornets in the Superdome?

Could this really work? The writer, Ashley Morris, asked John DeShazier of the Times-Picayune for his thoughts…

My guess would be, "No." He'd have to receive permission from the Saints, I believe, which he isn't likely to receive, and it would be a nightmare if, say, only 12,000 people showed up for a facility configured to host 35,000. But that's just a guess on my part.

I think it's a little premature to think we could sellout the Superdome, but if the Hornets keep rolling and make some noise in the Playoffs, such a feat may be plausible next season. And Tom Benson would be a dick if he stood in the way.
