Red McCombs must perish

:evil:

Someone needs to beat this S.O.B.!

He can't keep his team in Minnesota so now he is scheming with Benson to move the team to San Antonio and not even being the least bit covert about it.
I hope everyone agrees with me when I say F*ck Red McCombs!

I don't agree with the title of this topic. I see why McCombs would be interested i n this from a business POV. I do however find this to be utterly disturbing and very distasteful. The Saints belong in New Orleans now and forever.

That is just awful. If these a**holes in San Antonio TAKE ADVANTAGE of this situation and steal away the only thing that some of these people have left to hold onto, then shame on them. This is not the time to be taking advantage of a situation; people have lost their homes, possessions, and family members. I will be unbelievably pissed at Benson, the NFL, San Antonio, and I will most likely never watch another professional football game again. This is ridiculous; the Saints need to stay where they belong: IN NEW ORLEANS.

"F" McCombs and San Antonio! It is absolutely sick for them to say "Take advantage of this situation". If they so desperately want an NFL do an expantion team. They have an NBA team it sould not be that difficult for them. Take Advantage!!!!!! What a bunch of "F**kin' scumbags!
Crusader, I understand what you're saying about "business", but "business" should not even factor into this. This is not like a "Hostile take over of a corperation", they (S.A.) are talking about taking advantage of a natural disaster, human disaster; like a bunch of damn vultures waiting for N.O. to die.

:fuming: The whole thing makes me sick!

I don't think any of this holds much water... I mean sure what city wouldn't want a NFL team? Combs isn't in a position to make decisions like this and seems he only making an opinion... and we all know what they say about opinions. I highly think that Jerry Jones will have a huge issue with the Saints in his back yard for one, Mr. Texas. I also can't phatom for the life of me why they think that the NFL owners would agree to move a small market team into yet another small market.

Wow Euph, you and I agree, at least on the McCombs part. What a bunch of overreactions. Let me make this clear: RED MCCOMBS HAS NO SAY ON HOW SAN ANOTNIO IS RUN. He is Joe Blow on the street, except with more money. That's like someone interviewing Bill Gates and he says, boy maybe the Saints can play in San Jose, and everyone runs around like a chicken with their heads cut off about San jose trying to steal the Saints. Red McCombs is a San Antonio native, former NFL team owner who tried on numerous occasions to get the Vikes here, and failed. Who would guess he would speak up about the Saints? This is no reflection on the city of San Antonio or its people who have been more than helpful in light of this tragedy. In case some of you have forgotten, the Saints team is now living and practicing in San Antonio, and they have privately expressed interest in playing their home games here, CAUSE THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS AND THE SUPERDOME ARE UNINHABITABLE. Baton Rouge is busting at the seems as it is, and will more than likely be the headquarters of all relief and recovery efforts to New Orleans. They are already overcrowded, so much so LSU had to ove it's home game against AZ State to AZ. Be realistic, and stop looking for baseless reasons to blast San Antonio off the words of one insensitive coot.

Yeah, we need to stop agreeing so much lately. LOL. I couldn't agree with you more... people have to realize some of these articles get written by jounalist just looking and even trying to create a story doesn't mean it has significant substance to the article. Quite frankly I think it only exposes the uninteligence the reporter is...

Well, these reporters do seem to spend as much time fishing as they do reporting. Fishing for stories, if you know what I mean.

RE: Re: RE: Re: Red McCombs must die
 
yeah and even pay attention when they are really hurting they go to an "opinion story" of some sort. Part of the problem is there are so many media outlets that there is a void for material. TV, Radio, Newpaper, magazines, BLOGS, fourms... its nuts.

An opportunity upstate
A large percentage of the 561,000 housing units in New Orleans are likely destroyed, according to the National Association. of Realtors. While many of them will probably be rebuilt, some of the construction will also shift to Baton Rouge and other Louisiana cities, creating more construction, architecture and engineering jobs in these areas.

Still, the economic outlook in the region is far from rosy. Even with support from the government and other cities, Katrina could reduce employment by 400,000 people in coming months and trim economic growth by as much as a full percentage point in the second half of this year, according to a Congressional Budget Office assessment.

Some companies say they won’t be headed back to New Orleans after the rebuilding effort gets underway in coming months. Many law and accounting firms and energy companies from New Orleans and the coastal cities of Mississippi have already made decisions to move operations permanently to cities such as Baton Rouge and Lafayette and have signed long-term leases there, brokers say.

And more are being courted by smaller cities looking to boost their local economy.

The city of Shreveport, near the Texas border, has taken out ads in the Baton Rouge Advocate touting its large supply of commercial space and ample housing stock.
"Baton Rouge has doubled its population in a week and there is not enough housing there for business resumption," said Shreveport mayor Keith Hightower. "We have housing, we have office space and we have businesses that want to adopt those that want to relocate."

In some cases, real estate companies are even trying to bring business into their hometown. Rod Noles, owner of Noles-Frye Realty in Alexandria, is trying to attract key companies to the city by promising to buy back the houses of employees who stay in the area more than a year at 85% of the purchase price if they eventually decide to leave.

Look at these bastards in Alexandria and Lafayette tring to steal New Orleans' businesses. How dare they at a time like this. The nerve of someone to offer an available space to business who want to establish stability at a time like this and continue their operations in as much normalcy as possible. I mean a city in Louisiana actually trying to LURE businesses flooded in New Orleans to their areas? Scandalous. Boy, I hope these towns in Lousiana get ripped as bad as those terrible people from San Antonio, who had one loud mouth retired old coot speak and apparently represent the entire population of the city, which by the way is housing a large number of evacuees. :roll:
