The place to trash when you didn't evacuate during the mandatory evacuation.

I'm still pretty pizzed at the way our Holy Ground was disrespected.

Personally I have always hated the selling of naming rights to stadiums and bowl games etc.Some things should be off limits. Can you imagine selling naming rights to Death Valley, or for me Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium. I know theres lots of $$$ involved but it doesn't mean I have to like it. These days in sports every little thing has a corporate sponsor, the 1st qtr is brought you by Fedex etc. Just getting sick of it.

What if the money earned by sponsership of Vaught Hemmingway stadium went back into the program and Ole Miss could quit settling for worst team in the SEC, then would you hate it?

I still think that my earlier point remains valid, in that if the money made from this sponsorship deal is needed in order to assure that the Saints can remain competitive regarding their salary budget and the ability to spend right up to the cap... I don't care if the dome is called the "Sugar Shack Dome," because the name doesn't make a place and vice versa.

It just makes me wonder if there is a real financial need for something like this, because I would like to think that the organization wouldn't take on this type of an endeavor if it wasn't financially necessary.

We all know that Mr. Benson has a history of being a little stingy with his purse when it comes to player salaries, and while that has seemingly changed in the SP/ML era - it was mentioned in some article I read that Mr. Benson doesn't necessarily have the funds to keep up this trend of spending for long. This new project might be something that Rita Benson has come up with in order to refresh the money inflow, and to secure the Saints' ability to stay financially competitive. If so, I give it a "thumbs up!"

At least that is my view on this topic.

That is probably a bad example. I don't think money is the problem in Oxford...and you could give them all the money in Saudi Arabia and they still would be cellar dwellers, IMO.

Benson is trying to get Mercedes-Benz to bait and bite...

State of Louisiana obtained the LL&E Building next to the Superdome for Benson...

Not sure the details have ever been publicly confirmed...

Fin, that was pretty psychic on your part about Rita Benson. Word has it that she was the one who got the ball rolling on the Mercedes-Benz deal.
Got any insight into the next drawing of Powerball lottery numbers you want to share?
