there was also the Lafayette Wildcatters (don't know if they still exist anymore actually) and the Louisiana Swashbucklers (in Lake Charles... still playing I believe)

They do have some play in the endzones to the tune of a couple of yards.
Hell, Shreveport had a CFL team at one point.

It's either lakefront or bust for them! Take it or leave it.
Bust and give up the name.
I remember when the Hornets moved here and kicked the Brass out of the Arena, one of the options looked at when the Mardi Gras krewes wouldn't let them move back to the Municipal Auditorium was the UNO Lakefront Arena. But they couldn't go there due to the dimensions needed for the ice rink. I'm thinking that the same issue may come up for the Voodoo. It's a shame that they are probably headed down the same road as the Brass. Didn't the Voodoo use to have pretty good crowds? What happened? Was it because of the new owner?

Yeah, the game day experience, it's not what it used to be. I don't even know if the auditorium would even be a feasible option at this point. But the state has way to much invested in this deal as does Benson, so the VooDoo's needs are going to fall on deaf ears. The only other option maybe, proximity wise, would be the convention center. And that's if it's feasible size wise!
So any word yet on the name? Not one Fletcher Mackel or Fletcher Mackel trying to pull a lee zurik, where are the people who know people?
Well, nothing to report but just judging by all of the circumstances coming to a head I think it is safe to say that if he's going to buy the Voodoo brand it's going to be this off-season or not at all.
The phone signal in the dome seems much better with this lighter crowd.
Agreed with UP.
If I learn something, I will let you know what is shareable.
If this is the last Arena Football game I attend then so be it.

You were the second biggest celebrity at Arena Bowl behind Ron Jaworski.
This is true.
This is damned true.
Wait... isn't the NOArena still set to host the Arena Bowl again next season? or is that a year-by-year deal?
I really hope Benson buys the brand back. The only names I really like are VooDoo/Krewe/Knights.
