The Saints aren't unique in this sense. They are only unique in that their owner is, uh, I'll say "persuasive" enough, and the officials of the state in which they play are, uh, "generous" enough to give them direct state funding.

Whodat...got a question. Do the Packers have state funding? How do they have such a huge fan base and reside in such a small community? Wisconsin dosen't have that many people anyway....shouldn't the Saints try to build like the Pack does?

I realize that the Packers have been to Superbowls and are always at least moderatly successful....but if the Saints make a run a the SB this season or at least get deep into the playoffs....we should be able to rope some more fans...right? This would help keep the Saints in NO and get some more publicity.

Even the newest team, the Houston "Texans", put a larger flavor on their team.
Yep , Robert McNair probably spends many a sleepless night scratching his balls trying to figure out where he heard that name before .....

1952 Dallas Texans

Record: 1 - 11 - 0
Head Coach: Jim Phelan

how about the New Orleans Saints. Real simple. The New Orleans Saints. I like that. New Orleans Saints. Yeah..and just so that no one else feels left out. We'll have like caravans with players coaches and team administrators to travel throughout the state and the gulf region to garner support. What do you think

Agreed. It's kind of incensative. I mean not only did people lose their homes, their family members lose their lives, but the team has an owner who is about to play games with them. It's hard right now. If you don't live around here you may be sympathetic, but living in south Louisiana is tough right now.

Saints are not moving or changing their name.

They are the only team that is publicly held. As I understand it, their fans can actually buy stock in the team. They own their team and they have a great stadium experience. So, their model is totally unique and will probably never be repeated.
