Conwell's comments as team rep...

..said the Saints players want to play next year in San Antonio...

..one of the reasons being that they have kids and need to know where they are going to enroll them for the school year...

... poor Saints... that plane ride from San Antonio to Baton Rouge must be excruciating...

Having just done a relatively casual canvassing of NO, Mr. Conwell should expect two key things to happen January 3, 2006 which will make his life a lot clearer relative to his family:

#1

Nearly all Orleans Parish private schools except for St. Paul's will be open and serving up a full schedule. This includes Newman, Trinity, Maghee's and most of the Catholic run schools. By August 2006, these schools will be operating at full steam. West Bank public schools fared better than East Bank, but I doubt that Mr. Conwell ever intended to place his children in them.

Jefferson Parish private schools will be open, including Country Day, St. Martin's and the Catholic charity schools. Most of the public schools are scheduled to open, and the fall looks good.

If Mr. Conwell bothered to pick up a phone or log into any of the schools' internet sites, he would know this much.

#2

His sorry stone handed missed blocking assignment butt will be cut, thereby saving him the incalculable dilemma of chosing among the schools.

Only Conwell can piss me off even when he isn't playing. I guess he didn't wipe all of the vagisil off his hands before he tried to pick up the phone to check on the status of the schools in NO. The sorry bastard probably dropped every phone in the house then gave up.

If I were a parent in Conwell's situation, injured or not, I would think and say the exact same things. No matter how much money people make, you want stability in your household. Although the plane trips from San Antonio to Baton Rouge are definately not bad, flying out every week to a different city gets tiresome.

The only thing keeping the Saints from resuming their normal lives in New Orleans is Tom Benson. There is plenty of infrastructure to support the team, their facility is pristine and the city is growing by about 500 people a day (and will increase by about 50,000 in the week before xmas). All they have to do is come home. Mr. Benson is purposely jerking the team around. If Conwell had done his homework, he'd realize that the problem isn't New Orleans, it's his owner.

Sorry but I missed the part in Tobias's post where Conwell said New Orleans was the problem.

Xan is right. I pass through downtown New Orleans everyday. The traffic gets worse every five minutes. Schools are opening left and right. Conwell would have no problem at all finding a suitable location for his kids to go to school. Benson needs to job jerking the team and more importantly, the city around.

Not being able to commit to a school for his children is code for New Orleans is not functional.

What I don't get is why the players just don't say that they want to go back? Make a collective statement? Show leadership and commitment? Maybe this collection of individuals is spineless and weak, just like their play. One gains strength from commitment and focus, so why not step up to the plate?
