Dallas Cowboys head coach Tom Landry is carried off the field after his team wins Super Bowl VI Jan.16, 1972, at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans.
It’s not necessarily five cities vying for one Super Bowl like it used to be. We’re always thinking ahead trying to land the next one while managing the [major sports events] we have. … These events bring in thousands of members of the media for a week, not to mention the exposure from the international broadcast of the games.

“It’s good to be part of the Benson organization and what comes along with it — the Saints and the Pelicans and all of that investment. They have a lot of stroke, a lot of access.

We enjoy working with them. They like working with us.”
Mike Siegel, Corporate Realty president, discussing his company’s recent acquisition by Benson Capital
