What I mean is he wasn't going anywhere. At least in retrospect I don't think he was going anywhere. He was dealt some crappy cards and he played them as well as any man could.

I mean, he couldn't come back to New Orleans right away. Some poor underpaid player could have been bitten by a rabid Honey Badger, and with limited medical facilities in N.O. at the time might have died.

Thats what I thought you meant.

And so what if the player was bitten repeatedly by a rabid Honey Badger, Nasty*** Honey Badger don't give a ****.


Funniest video I've seen in a while.

When are the current players going to pony up for the former players?!?

If not, shut your pie holes, owners get the big cut because owners assume the risk...

Free Enterprise not Socialism works; if you disagree, see European Countries seeking bail-outs...

Look at the Auto Industry; $70/hour to operate a robotic-assist tool to bold truck beds to truck frames...

The system was a little more than generous; but they should understand reasonable wages; save your money, investing no more than a third...

But Ms Fujita just undid a ton of good work on the part of Scott with this pathetic letter...

And you may very well be right. The commish may have saved the day. I guess we'll never know. We just have to move on, like the Honey Badger.

Dear Mrs. Fujita,

I loved and respected your husband while he played for our team, but he CHOSE to leave. He could have stayed with the team, but he chose to go somewhere else for more money. If he "loved our city" so much, he would have stayed, regardless of the cost.

Regarding your letter: My brother is currently over in Afghanistan, fighting for his country. While your husband sleeps in a nice comfy bed, my brother goes without sleep. While your husband drives around in an expensive car, my brother drives around in a tank, risking the chance of being attacked. While your husband sits on his butt, *****ing about not working, my brother is in a war zone, wondering when he'll get to come home and see his family.

I don't want to hear anymore NFL sob stories about how hard these guys have it. Until you put yourself in the position of our US Soldiers, then STFU.

Also, quit whining and get a ****ing deal done so we can have football next year.

Sincerely,

Becky Boo (breesfan27)

PS, this was totally not a sob story, and I'm not looking for any sympathy, I'm just sick of hearing how "bad" these multi-millionaires have it.

As much as I love and respect our guys, I don't want to hear anymore *****ing and moaning. Get a deal done.

good points, great post, BF'27. but easy on the language there, young lady. I dont want the boys here to think of you as "easy," or "loose." (hahaha, jk... Remember last year, when I was the protector of your virtue?) I really like the avatar of yourself. I'm big on self avatars, as you know, because I think they show us as real people, and that tends to make us act real. (my honeybadger is just a gag for today.)

For all the interesting debate we're having, bear in mind, there doesnt necessarily have to be a good guy or a bad guy here.

My children dont have a concept of how I put a roof over their head. They dont understand how bills get paid. Likewise, I wonder if the average fan appreciates how the Hunts, Halas'es, Rooneys, and yes, Bensons make this whole thing possible in the first place. My kids rage against the machine, not realizing without the machine, they'd be sleeping outside in the Gulf Coast heat without air conditioning.

Benson screwed up big time after the Storm, and understandably, he'll never win some people back. I personally think he lost his mind after the Storm. I really do. But without Benson, we would have lost the Saints in '85. Benson hired Mickey Loomis & brought us Sean Payton. He also hired Jim Finks. And he stays the hell out of football operations, unlike Jerry & Al.

If I didnt love the players, I wouldnt be on this site. I wouldnt drive 6 hours to N.O. to watch the games. or buy tix. or do training camp in MS. or have a Wall O' Saints for a hallway. My truck, wardrobe, and living room would look vastly different.

I am consistently Reggie Bush's biggest apologist here, and also Devery Henderson's -- look it up. I cant stand to hear negative talk about any of my Saints, and dont participate in trade threads. I always like whoever plays for my team, except Dave Wilson & some kickers. I stood up for Richard Todd. Thought Ray Zellars was going to be the next "Bus." Still think Hebert is the most underrated QB in history.

When somebody criticizes a players performance, I often feel like ClintSaints expressed-- "You cant play the game yourself, so STFU." And Im rabidly against an 18 game schedule. It would be brutal to players, who already deal with pain, injuries, and having to exercise twice a day in a way that would make you or me puke. I dont hate anyone for getting paid.

I do disagree with the union's stance. The gravy should go to back to the ones who took the risk, maintain the expenses, and have to pay YOU.

This is my job. This is what it pays. I am always free to look for another job, since my sport paid for my college education, and now I have a degree most people cant afford.

If we're going to share the gravy, lets share it with the localities who built the stadium-- like Louisiana. Lets invest that gravy into a fund for former players who had to work offseason jobs. And lets invest that gravy for a rainy day, while the real world deals with tsunamis, war, & terror.

Somebody smart said, yesterday, that if we stop loving the players, both sides lose.
-- which takes me to Mrs. Brees'27s very relevant statement:
