Yeah I think you need to disconnect the call because nothing is getting through.

Seriously?

Benson still rapes the state for his $15 million a year just to keep the Saints here. He even collected in 2006 when money was a little tight after the rain. He also rents out over priced "contracted" office space to add to his bulging bankroll.

Now you want us to stomach the fact that he can't find another 3000-4000 tickets for SEASON TICKET holders?


Benson is just part of the problem- 17.5% to participating teams is a f***ing joke. It's 34% for the other 30 teams. What did anyone associated with Seattle or St. Louis do to deserve even one ticket?

Make it 35% each team, with 20% mandatory to the fans.

Sorry people ALL professional sports are about the money. Most normal people are left out in the cold to watch & root from TV. I am lucky if I can get to a game once every two years.

I know they are world class athletes & all BUT we pay them WAAAAY to much money. It is a little digusting when police, firemen, teachers, scientists, etc., etc. are stuggling or bareyl getting by & athletes & actors are making MILLIONS (some billions) of dollars.

HELLO?
Whoa, whoa, whoa, calm down there weatherman. I know the entire organization is called the Saints, I understand that, but by the way you are talking, it sounds like you are blaming the players as well. All I am saying. No need for anger.

well, they come from an unhappy place. Its understandable. They're used to being "pawned," and told how much they "fail." Its like escaping middle school.

On topic, I disagree, Scott, that Benson "rapes" the state. 15 million wont even pay Charles Grant, I dont think. I'm guessing bottom line isnt all that, after the astronomical payroll goes out. And if he does make money, great. I want Benson to make money, so he'll keep his business in New Orleans.

We have the best ticket prices in sports. Come over to Houston and see what the Texans charge for one crappy seat in a different zip code--even beforethe PSL scam kicks in -- and thats to see the TEXANS, ugh! .... in Reliant Morgue.
The only one who makes me feel raped in New Orleans is Central Parking.

Of course, I could be biased now, because he gave me that shiny gold coin. It has the Superdome on it, and its shiiiiny! I like it.

But I totally agree each teams fans should get 20% of the tickets at least. Thats a wonderful idea. In fact I'd like see it at 40%. You could have a special celebrity masturbatory awards program the night before, with Kathy Griffin & a red carpet---then give them some kind of VIP viewing theatre with hors d' ouevres & cocaine. Tell em its for the Rainforest. This gets the celebrities & ET out of the way.

If you have money for SB tickets, you have money to burn anyway, and there are other places to get your tickets besides the Saints (organization).

In its current condition & price, I have zero interest in attending a Super Bowl live. The real party is at home, and we can greet the players at the airport.

I think what you're trying to say is that the title of this thread would be more appropriately, "Could not be more Disappointed in the Front Office," since we know this board is about the Saints, and glancers-by dont mistake this headline for being about Drew & Reggie, thereby peeing in the pool party.

... but Im a "genius," what do I know?

Re: Could not be more disappointed in the Saints.....

Why would I change the title of the thread to appease two people who have now gotten together to discuss what happens on another board or whatever they are talking about.

Tom Benson owns the SAINTS.
Mickey Looms is the GM of the SAINTS.
The ticket people sell tickets for the SAINTS.
The players play for the SAINTS.
The janitor cleans the toilet for the SAINTS.

See how that works, the whole organization is called the Saints. I don't need to relax I was just thinking that by saying I was disappointed in the Saints when it came to tickets that people had enough common sense to know I was not talking about the players. Apparently there is a disconnect there. I don't even know how this got started, I guess because someone insinuated that I was mad at Drew and Reggie because of the number of Super Bowl tickets they released. I mean it's quite obvious that Drew and Reggie got together at a table with all the Super Bowl tickets and divided them up. Good lord.
