Could anyone sum up the contents of the article (in your own words)?

The article basically states that Benson is dead set on moving the team to san antonio, but the league wants no part of that. The nfl wants to gauge the interest level of the saints in louisiana and see if we can still support the team. Mort seems to think that the saints will eventually end up with pete carroll as their head coach in los angeles. He also mentions the possibility of the saints ending up with matt leinart in this year's draft. All speculation at this point.

Definately speculation. I can't see the Saints in Los Angeles within the next 2 years (atleast). I don't think we'll end up with Leinart either. Also, the only way the Saints will play in San Antonio is splitting the season up between Baton Rouge and San Antonio. They will not play their entire season in Texas.

I think L.A. wants the Saints, but I don't think they want Benson.

Los Angeles is a busted market for the Saints ......

It is a p.r. manuever by the NFL front office , basically Los Angeles does not want the Saints and Anaheim does not want the p.r. problems .......

Anyone who buys into the Los Angeles Saints , let me know I have some ocean front property for you in Arizona ......

No way are the saints going to LA... NFL would like to move a team there but they want a new owner there not old blood. I think its more likely that there will be an expansion team in a few years, you also have to keep in mind that the NFL likes having LA in its negociations with others NFL cites in new stadiums ect. I mean "give us a new deal or will move to LA". How many teams have been mentioned using this tactic, SD, MN, Jack, NO...

I have been posting Insider articles related to the Saints since last year's draft. Did it become illegal yesterday?
