True, New Orleans is well travelled by tourist, but no one goes to New Orleans to watch a Saints games either. You have to market the team to those who live within the region. Those are the people who will buy the tickets, not people flying in from NY, LA, France, etc. I say if the entire state has to pay the subsidee to keep the team in Louisiana, then the team should bare that name. All I'm saying is that people statewide would take more pride in the team if the name better represented them.

The only people not likely to come back are the 130,000 welfare squatters who are getting better handouts in Houston, Atlanta, Los Angeles and other big cities (where, not surprisingly, the crime rate has increased dramatically). They weren't the ones filling the stands to begin with, so who cares if they come back? The fan base isn't going anywhere, it is already in New Orleans and the surrounding area. I don't really understand why having a large instututionalized underclass is important for the Saints to return to New Orleans?

And don't think you won't see some of those federal monies allocated to the non-existant welfare population. Somebody in BR has already diverted it to the Caymans.
