This comes up every year about this time for some reason. I just don't see it happening. Why would the Saints go from a small market to an even smaller market. Texas already has the Coyboys and Texans and I doubt the NFL really thinks they need an additional team, especially since moving the Saints would alienate all the fans in the deep South.

Call me a Pollyanna, I just don't think Benson would have bought the team in the first place to keep them in N.O. only to turn around 20 years later to move them to a state that already has 2 NFL teams or anywhere else. I think it was a case of people poking the crazy and him poking right back. I just don't think he was serious. If he was, I think he would have made the deal and done it already. But people really should be careful. It's been years and years since Bob Irsay moved the Colts out of Baltimore in the middle of the night. Even I remember that hurt like it was yesterday and I lived 45 miles away at the time but I loved the Baltimore Colts. I'm not saying that Benson would or could do a thing like that, I'm just saying I dont want to poke a crazy billionaire.
