ESPN Saints rumors

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Dallas and Houston dwarf San Antonio. Don't get into the "city limits" game. That's what's hurting New Orleans. Metairie alone is almost 400K and all of Jefferson is a good bit larger than the City of New Orleans....

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

Correct me if I am wrong but how many Saint players live in the 9th Ward? They can go there live and be viable

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

The reason the NFL does not want to move an NFL team to San Antonio is because the metro area is not much larger than the New Orleans metro area, because they are including surrounding areas in those totals and in the case of New Orleans the include Jefferson, Plaquemine and I think St Bernard. If the practice facilities are in great shape, Jefferson Parish is back on its feet and we can play in the Superdome as of November 1st, I say schedule the first 3 home games for Tiger stadium, the last five for the Superdome and let them practice in Fat City Baby. Where is the issue here? If the Saint's play in November of next year in the Superdome, I guarantee it would be full, I guarantee!!!!!!!!

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

Mort also reported on the Dan Patrick show that Haslett feels he can't go through what he went through this year again next year.

Put aside football, the game, the rules, and think about this- he knows his job longevity is dependent on his team's performance, so he's already in a stressful position. Couple that with the fact that people that work as hard as Haslett does (do not take into account performance, please, this is not the point) are under added stress, plus, what he's had to go through on both a personal level... I heard that he's going to go six months without being around his kids on a daily basis, and that he's had to take on added responsibilities of having to move a team from one city to another??? I hope he leaves, not only because I think the franchise needs a facelift, but I think he needs out...for his health, which is more important than football.

I've seen the coaching wishlists, but honestly, who's going to want it?

The waiting drove me mad....

RE: ESPN Saints rumors

I heard through a rumor that Haslett would love to get into a Def Coord or LB Coach position?? Just a rumor.

I'm not as sympatethic as you are.

I know many people who "work as hard", if not harder, than Jim Haslett, who are on prescribed medications because of stress, and don't make 5% of the salary Haslett is making - and I put that in quotes, because I don't know exactly what is it that Jim Haslett does all those hours he says he spends "working"... by his own admission, he doesn't motivate players, he lets the OC run the offense and the DC run the defense, so I don't know what he does... paperwork maybe? -

..and this about taking the added responsibility to move the team to another city: what exactly do you think he did? Hired moving trucks? negociated leases, practice facilities, etc...? Betcha money that was the administrative staff who did that...

So he has to work on another city for a few months.. you know there are 3 national hotel chains that specialized in extended stays? I know because I've use them, and stayed months away from my family. Heck, when I was working as a Unix admin, like many people, most weeks, the only time I saw my kids were the weekends because I left the house too early and came home too late, and no one was paying me $2,000,000 Dlls a year....

Anyone's job longevity is based ob his/her performance... only in professional sports or high-level executive positions are you allowed to fail/screw up multiple times and keep your job, or jump to another equally lucrative position somewhere else...

You know? We have people in Iraq who we ask to leave their families for a whole year, and who are going to die far away from home and never are going to see them again, and, should they live through it, would never make $2,000,000 Dlls in a life time, much less one year...

The freaking U.S. President makes only $500,000 a year, for crying out loud!!!

For $2,000,000 a year, he better be able to handle the stress.. if he can't handle the stress, I'm pretty sure he can find a less stressful job...

..and as far as who would want the job, hey, since winning isn't really a priority with this organization, I'm sure you'll find someone who''ll take the $2,000,000 a year to coach and give you the same s***y results..

I'm with you TR. I have no sympathy for Haslett. He hasn't been "doing his job" since he got here. I also have to question what he is doing all these "long hours." I had to spend 4 months in a tent in Kuwait along the Iraqi boarder, please Jim don't whine about hardship. I didn't get to see my son and wife AT ALL, let alone very seldon. What a crock. Quit you loser.

Damn cutthroats :P

All I can say is I've seen what stress can do to you, firsthand. I've nearly wrecked my car before, because I lost control of almost all of my body. So, maybe I take it a bit more serious than you.

I asked that his performance not be taken into account, because it has no relevance to what I was trying to relay. But, I guess that's like asking the IRS to put me into a lower tax bracket...not going to happen.
