... true that.. Conwell didn't say New Orleans is the problem... he did say the players want to stay in S.A. Where you enroll your kids in school is really not an issue when you are making at least $375,000 a year and received a couple million 2-3 years before as signing bonus. I know people who's home is in one city, but keep an apartment on the city they work, where they stay during the week, and go home on the weekends, and they don't make half as much. And they do it all year long, plus they don't get 4 straight months with their families after first week of January.

... same thing goes fot guys who work 12-14 hour days, again not making even half of what Ernie makes, or any of the Saints players for that matter, who live in the same house as their kids, but because their schedule, only get to see their kids awake Saturday and Sunday...


... if Ernie and the rest want to live in S.A., fine... Friday night you get on a chartered plane, fly fo what? 45 minutes? Then go back Sunday night after you lost another game, you are home for the weekdays!!!
..plus, when players get traded - or cut and they sign up with another team - in the middle of the school term, no one gives a damn about the kids. What should it be any different now? Ernie had no issues uprooting his kids from St. Louis when he signed with the Saints...

.. and one does get the feeling that the Saints players don't want to deal with the hassle of reconstruction. They're all comfy in S.A.

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

I seriously don't think its the majority of the team that wants to stay in SA. They play for the New Orleans Saints if they don't want to release them and get us comp pick and lets build in the draft.

I thought I was the only one pissed off by his comments. I know most of the players aren't from New Orleans, and they didn't "ask" to play for the Saints, but if they care anything about their fans, they would push more for the team to stay in New Orleans and return as early as next year.
