Saints' front office needs a hard look in mirror

t should not be ignored that the final days before Geoff Santini's nationally known lawsuit against the New Orleans Saints, concerning the theft of prescription Vicodin and its cover-up, fell on the Thursday and Friday of the last weekend of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

It is interesting that the Saints and the Jazz Fest are intertwined just a bit in this fiasco of bad calls by the Saints that have woken up in a way the frustrated screams of the franchise's "glory days" of one- and two-win seasons and fumbles from the opponents' 1-yard line back to the 50 (versus Chicago in 1973 in Tulane Stadium). If ever a fan base deserved Vicodin without a prescription, it is the Who Dats.

The Saints, who actually beat the Bears that day, and the Jazz Fest are two of the greatest things about New Orleans. Even long before Super Bowl XLIV's Shangri-La arrival, when the Saints were losing in a seemingly drug-induced regularity virtually every year from 1967-86, from 1994-1999 and from 2001-05 and in 2007-08, they were always as connected to the city as the best restaurants, crime, and police and political corruption.

The Saints started in 1967. Jazz Fest, the Super Bowl of music festivals, started just a bit after in 1969 and began winning much more quickly and much more consistently.

It was from Jazz Fest XLII last April 30 that one of the myriad of attorneys representing the Saints' many legal and illegal ventures partially funded by millions of state dollars every year that a cellular phone call was made. Seems the Saints' team of lawyers had written notice of the imminent lawsuit since Wednesday, April 28, before it was filed at 4:24 p.m. on Friday, April 30.

Hmm, in mid-afternoon before 4:24 p.m. that Friday, Kermit Ruffins and the Barbecue Swingers were playing at the Congo Square Stage and Eric Lindell was in the Blues Tent. At 4:24 p.m. exactly, Allen Toussaint was playing at the Acura Stage, and he had their attention as fervently as Drew Brees in that pregame huddle.

Maybe it is just me but you seem to be howling at the moon. Try it in C sharp. Maybe that will help.

The FO should look in the mirror, do the finger-gun point thing, wink and make that clicking noise with the side of their mouths,
and then say "Buper Bowl, baby"

Re: Saints' front office needs a hard look in mirror

What a completely worthless article.

The author is the one who is slimey -- well, him and Santini's lawyer.

He really stretches it with this "Jazzfest connection." All of that going around the world to try to make a point -- one of the Saints lawyers was at jazzfest when he should have been paying Santini money.


I wonder where he got the information that one of the Saints' lawyers told Hyatt, "we really have not looked at that yet" or whatever. There is only one place that could have logically came from -- Santini's lawyer.

BTW, lawyers tell each other "we haven't really looked at that" because the bar frowns on them telling each other "F - you." It's a pretty low class move on Hyatt's part (assuming I am correct that he leaked this "story.")

The TP and NOLA.com can suck it. Who'd thought that most of the negative press would come from the hometown. I guess this is their way of getting back at the Saints FO for that report and site being locked out.

"If ever a fan base deserved Vicodin without a prescription, it is the Who Dats."

Possibly one of the best quotes of all time.
