There are only a few things we should be worried about with this move:

1. If his family just moved because they wanted to eventually relocate there, but in the long run it becomes a distraction and hurts the franchise.

2. If there are "personal" issues between he and his wife, and it affects his coaching duties which in turn hurts the team.

3. If he does decide to leave the Saints and takes a job with the Cowboys.

If he can still effectively coach the Saints and keep them winning, then I don't care if he lives in Dallas, Denver, Budapest, or Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory after finding a golden ticket.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

He also still owns a home in La. I'm not sure about Dallas but here in Houston the property taxes are high. At the end of the day he's not saving any money just creating more expense, especially with flying back and forth. The only thing I can imagine going through his head is that he's positioning himself for the Cowboys position. I think he knows Garrett will have limited success and the job will be his for the taking and a huge salary increase.

The property taxes in Texas is higher than Louisiana so actually with the combined taxes it will cost him more of his salary to live in Texas. But it doesn't bother me that he wants to move back to the Dallas area. His family gave Louisana a shot but I guess his wife is more high maintenance than what Mandeville could offer. That golfing community in Dallas is pretty swanky.

The taxes are higher but not as many politicians end up in jail.

At least Coach P didn't buy a home in Atlanta.

:/

Florida or Texas are the choice of many people with a lot of cash.
NO STATE TAXES.

Duh. Go figure he'd buy a house in Upper Mexico... but Dallas? Hurl.
I'd of picked Austin... but I'm biased.

Just curious, how much of an increase will his property taxes be, and how much of a decrease will he receive in not paying State taxes?

Really doesn't matter at all. I understand his concern being he has kids starting to come up in age. I grew up in New Orleans and have since relocated because my wife and I had kids. It's not exactly a family freindly environment. No offense to anyone, it's just my opinion. In the end, it's simply none of our business where a man decides to locate his family. Enjoy our success while Payton is here and if he happens to go then I will wish him luck. After all, he and the Saints provided me with some of the best memories of my life.
