Toronto Councilor apologizes for New Orleans Saints remarks
 
1 Attachment(s)
Toronto city councilor Doug Ford apologized Thursday afternoon for any confusion stemming from his comments about that city's hopes of landing an NFL franchise, saying he should not have included the New Orleans Saints as a potential prize.

Ford's brother and political ally, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, attended Super Bowl XLIV and is in fact a Saints fan, Doug Ford said, and the city has neither the intention nor a plan to try to get the Saints to leave New Orleans, even though Toronto would like to have an NFL franchise.

"We'd love to see the NFL give us a new franchise," Ford said, allowing that did not seem possible at the moment. "And we had heard rumors about San Diego and rumors about Jacksonville and then all of a sudden New Orleans popped up from a very good source, a few sources actually. And Rob and I were like, 'New Orleans? No way!'

Actually, Ricky did play for the Toronto Argos during his NFL hiatus.

Also, the mayor of Toronto was charged with marijuana use a couple years ago while visiting Florida... (as well as DUI) So you may be onto something there.

I'd like to know who the few "good sources" were that mentioned the Saints... Maybe the same source he gets his weed from
