Falcons Writer Calls Superdome A ‘Dump’
With news that the Mercedes-Benz Superdome will undergo a $450 million overhaul, one Falcons beat writer didn't have nice things to say about the Saints home base.
While Jeff Schultz, who covers the Falcons and other teams for The Athletic, made sure to not insult the whole city or it's people, he did call the Superdome a dump, and that the $450 million couldn't fix it.
According to a report from the NFL's Observation Program, The New Orleans Saints came in at number 1 out of all 32 NFL teams in overall game day satisfaction in both 2017 and 2018.
The renovations to the Dome include the removal of 80,000 square feet of interior ramps and installation of escalators and elevators, among other projects.
The makeover for the Superdome is scheduled to be completed by the time New Orleans once again hosts the Super Bowl in 2024.
