They want to provide a home for this season, whil ensuring revenue for the team. Nothing more.

"Nothing More??? This is a scheme to get the Saints. S.A. is not doing this out of the kindness of their hearts. Tiger Stadium is just down the road and will hold 92k people. Nothing more???

You people sound like your panicking... relax, the NFL isn't going to approve the Saints moving for sometime not anyother time. You'll see a team in LA before you seem a team in NO... and I will garentee it won't be the Saints in Los Angeles.

This is why I have chosen to ignore you. Where did I say ANYONE had a HIDDEN agenda? I disputed the claim that McComb's agenda was hidden. Seems like you are agreeing with me, yet trying to disagree. You do know Red McCombs is a private businessman and has NOTHING to do with the government of San Antonio right? I guess you don't. Dismissed.

On average... this doesn't take into account New Orleans is a proven 19 average market and doesn not include Biloxi and Modile who fall into the umprella if you count the likes of Austin ect... so maybe a slight increase in market if you give New Orleans the same area as SA. I just don't think its going to be the factor that draws the Saints away. New Orleans stands to have an economical boom after this, jobs companies coming in to do work and rebuild.

I also read Benson is doing some major relief fundraising for the New Orleans. Looks like he is going to be a huge factor, player in rebuilding. If you are getting out of dodge then why would you care.
You could count Mobile and Biloxi and all that other area, but I think season ticket sales proved how they felt about the team. You wouldn't have that problem in San Antonio/Austin, cause they have never had their own team. The gulf coast has had the Saints for 40 years, and their apathy is beginning to show. It's kinda like being a Braves fan, which I am. They don't sell out their stadium anymore cause they ALWAYS win the division, yet have only one world series title to show for that in 15 years. You won't get into that problem in the San Antonio area for about 20 years or so of losing. Now don't get me wrong, I in no way want the Saints to leave, but for people who don't think the area is a real threat, it is. Toyota and Washington Mutual are moving into San Antonio to the tune of about 10,000 new jobs. Trust me, the Saints would be well suppoerted there, and San Antonio does not have two previous failed teams on their hands like Los Angeles.
