If you’ve been watching college football and the NFL you’ve seen some stadiums at limited capacity, while others are not allowing any fans.

Many teams and coaches are pointing out how it’s unfair to play a road game where that team has fans, but the visiting team then can’t have fans back on their home turf.

Lots of pissed off people.

For example, this past weekend, Florida Gators coach Dan Mullen said he wanted to pack Ben Hill Griffin Stadium with 90,000 fans for the added home field advantage, and has taken a ton of heat for the comments (he stands by the comments).

Now, Adam Schefter is reporting the New Orleans Saints may move their home games to LSU’s Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge.

The Saints just squeaked out a home win last night against the Chargers 30-27.

From Saints official Greg Bensel:

“LSU has been gracious and enthusiastic regarding hosting our future games, and we very much appreciate their partnership. We have also discussed the possibility of moving our home games to LSU with the NFL, and they are aware of our exploring this option. Obviously, our overwhelming preference is to play our games in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome with partial fan attendance, but there has been no indication from the city on when, or if, this might be approved.”

Stay tuned.
