Re: Benson makes yahoo frontpage

Saints celebration checklist. Senior citizens, or persons who've had more than 3 drinks, cannot be expected to remember or go through all of this -
  • Has the ref's whistle blown?
  • Has the official given the proper signal?
  • Where is the football? Which player, if any, has the football?
  • Are the other refs running over to the signaling official to make a correction?
  • Is there a yellow flag on the field?
  • Are any of the refs reaching for their flag?
  • Are fans or players lobbying with the ref for a flag?
  • Has the ref appeared to make up his mind?
  • Are the officials in a huddle?
  • Is the play reviewable?
  • Does the team who could challenge the play have any challenges remaining?
  • Is there a red flag on the field?
  • Is the coach reaching for his red flag?
  • Can the booth review the play?
  • Was there time left on the clock when the play started?
  • Does it appear there may have been a mistake in the clock start/stop operation before/during/after the play occurred?
  • Did a player or coach call timeout before the play began but it was noticed before the snap?
  • Did the player get hit out of bounds?
  • Are the opposing players fighting or about to become hostile with each other?
  • Is your team behind by one point and awaiting the result of a presumably automatic extra point?

Because on TV the owner's suite was highlighted either during or just after the kick and Mr. Benson... well he thought we made the kick but didn't. On TV it looked funny, but for Saints fans it was a pretty sad moment.

You know how the media are... any human error or frailty is NEWS.

Re: Benson makes yahoo frontpage

I would rather have seen his expression when Morstead got tangled up with the ref on that punt return.

That would have been more appropriate for this game...

My thoughts:
--- (my popularity be damned)--- Benson looks like there's been a death. Love him or not, he gives a damn. He dies & dies Saints just like we do. I personally remember the Tom Benson who saved the Saints from moving back in '85, and then came back to his senses in '06. Its time to bury the past, and let the Benson Boogie next time we win.

---Gayle Benson sure is a pretty lady. They almost ran me over in their golf cart at Milsaps/Training Camp '06, and I thought she was Rita, because I didnt know what Rita looked like at the time. Isnt it great that old guys like you, me, and Tom Benson can work hard hard, save our money, and find pretty ladies to love us, who are not much older than our daughters. This is why America is the Greatest country on Earth. I like her.

---I know the Bensons are fair game to cameras. I also know that people with money are allegedly evil, even though without the support of our wealthy fans who buy luxury suites, we would have no team. But for some reason, when those NFL Network announcers laugh at them in the video clip, I just want to punch them in the face. You're not funny. Just describe the game, a$$clowns.

---If we beat the Panthers, I'll chip in 10 bucks toward his fine, if Tom Benson will shoot the bird at the camera and yell, "**** YOU. WE WIN!"

... just make sure its official. Lets beat them damn Panthers.

Player To Be Named Later
