Analyst doubts Saints will stay in N.O.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't see where King's remarks were out of line. His prediction, unfortunately, is a real possibility. Regardless of how upbeat things may seem at the moment, I don't trust Benson. 8)...

RE: Analyst doubts Saints will stay in N.O.

We are going to see the seats filled to the brim this year. Duece, Brees, Horn and Bush will fill the seats this year.If the team comes even remotely close to the playoffs they will be filled even more next year. I really don't see "butts in the seats" being an issue.

Was this made before or after we got Reggie Bush?.... because right now the Saints are probably pulling in some cha-ching.
No doubt!

Brees and Bush sales should go through the frickin roof!

Doesn't sound like a slam to me just objective observation. I do think it should be all time tickets sales with the new high powered offense. The suite though are a serious issue. I don't know a thing about them. It seems there should be some means of creative marketing to promote them though. Per game rentals to groups (such as message boards) would seem workable. What about some lottery/raffle type sales?

As terrible as the team was and as putrid as Benson was last year Louisiana people were up in arms about his rumblings of moving. Ya know how nuts people are here for football. If the team actually shows some signs of life this season then Benson and the legislators will have a constant earful to contend with if only considering such.

That is from March, I have seen a greater number in a much more recent article but i can't seem to find it at the moment.

Well, my wife and I were in a car last Wednesday that toured the hardest-hit area of New Orleans, the Lower Ninth Ward. We worked a day at a nearby Habitat for Humanity site on Thursday, and we toured the Biloxi/Gulfport/Long Beach/Pass Christian gulf shore area last Friday. And let me just say this: I can absolutely guarantee you that if you'd been in the car with us, no matter how much you'd been hit over the head with the effects of this disaster, you would not have Katrina fatigue.

What I saw was a national disgrace. An inexcusable, irresponsible, borderline criminal national disgrace. I am ashamed of this country for the inaction I saw everywhere.

Even before the draft, Saints executive Rita Benson LeBlanc, the owner's granddaughter, said sales were on pace with 2003, when the Saints set a franchise record for season tickets sold with about 54,000.

Ticket sales will go through the roof of the Dome, I'm not at all worried about Benson not selling tickets now with a great team brewing..

I suspect it was published after the draft.

I sure hope we don't leave NO. I think us signing Reggie will definately help our chances of staying in NO. Reggie is already selling tickets (I'm laughing at all the posters, and there are a lot of you, that said one player can't sell tickets, winning does. Winning definately does, but so does Reggie Bush) and the dome should be insane this year. I think by us landing Bush, the NFL believes that the Saints can be a major contributor in rebuilding the city. We will be a team people want to see and the NFL always prides itself on helping build communties, lets see if they are true to their word, I think in this case they will be. The NFL and a lot of owners will come off looking real bad if they took the Saints out of NO after we got Reggie Bush.
