Moral Questions in Stealing the Saints?

Carlos Guerra: Does anyone see the moral questions in stealing the Saints?


San Antonio Express-News

The details are uncomfortably sketchy, but the drive to "permanently" relocate the New Orleans Saints in San Antonio is in high gear.

When hosting some Saints' home games first arose, Mayor Phil Hardberger said that there would be a price and that the city had its limits. Sunday, he reiterated his opposition to spending city money on an NFL franchise and invited the state to pay the tab. But he also said that he will meet with Saints owner Tom Benson about a relocation after the season ends.

The same day, Gov. Rick Perry said that he would welcome a third National Football League team in Texas, and that the state would support San Antonio's bid, but offered no details. Sen. Jeff Wentworth filled in one blank, saying that he was checking into getting state money from the Texas Enterprise Fund, a virtually unrestricted discretionary fund with almost $150 million of tax money that Perry controls.

Then, after Sunday's game, Benson fired the Saints' top administrator, Arnold Fielkow, who wanted to keep the Saints in Louisiana.

Now, the word is that for the right deal, Benson will bring the Saints to San Antonio's Alamodome for a few years, until the team gets a new stadium. Still unrevealed is how much a new stadium will cost, who will pay for it and what we will do with the Alamodome after it's vacant again.

The mailbag indicates some readers remain skeptical.
