No respect, I tell ya ...

The Saints-to-San Antonio bandwagon has gone stealth, but you have to commend those still cracking the whip. The near-capacity crowd for the Lions game Christmas Eve rates as the Miracle on Commerce Street. It's official: San Antonio, despite having less of an attachment and less incentive, outdrew Baton Rouge by a 3-2 margin for Saints games, and it doesn't matter that Lions tickets were practically distributed under the wiper blades of parked cars.

So what's the city's reward? Next up: Another possible insult from Paul Tagliabue, who has plans to fly to S.A. this week and meet with owner Tom Benson and Saints players. He's not scheduled to meet with city officials in a city that bought 54 percent of all Saints home tickets this season, and in only three games.

The city didn't buy squat. Count Dipstick and his bloodsucking traveling band of arseholes bought most of those tickets and passed them out to anyone that would take a ticket. If you have never been to a professional football game before wouldn't you take a 50 dollar ticket just to do something on a Sunday afternoon.

Talk about biased journalism. This writer doesn't see that it matters how people got the tickets to go to the game. All the SA fans had to do was pay parking and they're in. Isn't something that usually costs $50 (but you can get for free)an incentive to go and isn't that an unfair advantage for the SA numbers when considering attendance? I think so and I really think anyone with an open mind about the situation would think so.

Benson is so transparent in this it's pathetic. We all know you want to go toSA, Tom. We also all know you're rigging the numbers to make it look like you have more interest for your team in SA. The worst part is that you think you're doing it anyone seeing it.
