BENSON OPPOSES RETURN TO NEW ORLEANS

Benson opposes return to New Orleans

Web Posted: 11/04/2005 12:00 AM CST

Express-News Staff Writer
New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson remains deeply skeptical about the franchise's future in New Orleans, despite mounting pressure from the NFL to bring the team back to Louisiana for the 2006 season, sources close to the situation say.


The sources, who requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of discussions between the Saints and the NFL, describe Benson as outraged by the intervention of league commissioner Paul Tagliabue in the matter and hardened in his desire to explore relocation options, including San Antonio.

Is Benson trying to be a peckerhead? Or does it just come natural, without effort...

Trying? There's no "trying" in football. Either you do or you don't. Benson does, very well.
