Of course not. It's all in good fun.

But honestly, don't see a (full-time) NFL team moving here. The Bills are trying out a couple of games up here, but honestly the prices are just stupid. Not to mention that the NFL has already stated that Toronto would need a new stadium if we wanted a full time team... Really, not all that realistic.

Jaguars are moving to Los Angeles; they are not viable in Jacksonville with Tampa and Miami already there; plus, Florida economy is in shambles and not likely to recover with so many people there that don't contribute to the economy (retirees that hide their money in tax shelters and do not spend and welfare dependents that vote in Palm Beach).

There are certain franchises that are entwined with their city's teams to the point they are their identity; Baltimore and Cleveland were a good lesson in this and the political fallout from that move is still being felt (lot of old Colts and old Browns fans sit on circuit courts); those cities most interlocked would be Packers, Saints, Browns, Cowboys, Redskins, Eagles, Steelers, and Bears.

Plus, I wouldn't want to play for those teams with those tax rates...

I haven't heard anything about expansion lately it's been over 10 years now since the Texans came in the league. Why haven't the league look at some more city's to get teams instead of other city's trying to steal other city teams.

While I do believe this is a bunch of hogwash, I can see how the Saints could be a possible candidate to relocate. Let's face it, right now the Saints could be at their peak value, and Benson is an old man. Simply handing the team over to Rita may not be as easy as one would think. None of us have any idea what type of issues this may cause with other family members, especially considering the current value of the franchise. There could also be some serious tax issues for the family once Mr. Benson passes away. Maybe the easy thing, for the sake of the Benson family, would be for Benson to sell the team within the next couple years.

Just sayin...

Yup... as I sated before, he is a complete idiot. This is obviously something that he just said without doing any research. As for Benson being an old man, Ralph Wilson (owner of the Bills) is much older, and has already stated that when he dies, the Bills gets sold to the highest bidder. With that being said, there are already talk of some groups in Toronto putting in a bid.

Oh, jeanpierre... please don't lump all of us Canadians in with Doug Ford. I like the Saints where they are, as it gives me a reason to come visit your fine city (and most other Canadians either don't want an NFL team, want the Bills, or want "any" team).

merci, mon ami.
