He didn't give a poop about the "fan base" before....

Re: Why would they consider moving

YEP! It is true. Saints could be out-a here after 2010. Its all about the dollars. Benson has them, let's the GM know that he wants to keep them, and he wants more. The new govenor along with the state house/senate has to negotiate and agree on a new deal with Benson to keep the Saints in town. Louisiana has been supplimenting the Saints organization and has given Benson control of many of the ancillary profits of New Orleans Saints football. Benson is cheap! and we have supported his cheap production year after year because we love football, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS football. There is NOWHERE else he can go and get the support that we have given, year-in and year-out based on the success, or lack there of, of this team. WE LOVE Saints football. Benson loves money (but who doesn't?). Here in is our dilemma. Do we (LA residents) continue to feed Tom's insatiable appetite for more-more-more, or do we say "the hell with him, let him take his team elsewhere"? There are many cities that would take our Saints in a San Antonio second! And if we lose the Saints, in our "small market", we probably wouldn't see another NFL franchise come our way until 3010. Somebodys going to have to make a decision, and make it by 2010.

Tell me, I worked in the business for almost 30 years. But look at what a nice guy I am!

I agree with you Joe. LA needs more thing right now than another place to play football. After LA is taken care of and NO is back to normal, build a new stadium.
