They're going to bring a bunch of morons into New Orleans and of course they'll get liquored up... It can't possibly end well. For the sake of the reputation of the fine people of the Gulf Coast in general, think about moving the Superbowl.
I couldn't disagree with you more. First, it takes years of planning to host a Super Bowl. No one else could do it.

Second, it would totally devastate the economy of the city since many have spent money preparing for this landfall.

Third, this whole thing going on now will be an afterthought since the Saints will be in the Super Bowl.

Y'all are making far too big a deal of this. In a couple of weeks we'll be moving on with an interim coach and planning for the draft.

Chill out!

It will be more difficult to get out of an away game without an incident.

I'm a fighter. I can deal with that. I just don't want to get locked up in a Brees jersey, that's all. Cause then you gotta beat more ass down at lockup.

I mean, I may never get done whipping ass over this bounty program!

I'm with AG, too much prior planning involved and money spent. I've been wrong before but moving the SB would be a logistics nightmare having to book another city which may already have events that would have to be cancelled and money refunded, so that's a double whammy of problems.

Also, it would look bad on the NFL..when does the punishment end? All the suspensions have differnt end dates, the picks as well. A line has to be drawn somewhere on punishing the Saints and the city. It's still not over either. We will likely have players suspened all with different suspense dates...enough is enough.

Agreed. What did the City of New Orleans do?
If Goodell moves the SB, not that he will, well, why stop there with the absurd. Strip Benson of his toy, N.O.Saints.

Really everyone. Breathe. Lets stop posting the sburd...of SP out for a year is pretty absurd. Worst news is over. SP, etc. Saints will RISE over this; Saints 'fans will rise to be classy. City of N.O. Tourism Comision , police, etc., will roll out bargains and fun events and things for being SB hosts as every SB host city does.

Not that I am into chapping asses, but I'm cool with those who do, but it would be pretty damned sweet, no?

If this board was representative of the whole city, then the SB would be moved, no question. No-one in the NFL would worry about a bunch of people who don't want a SB, not getting one. There's a precedent to show it could be done - the Superbowl after 9/11 was delayed a week, and that was with only 4 months' notice.

Am I understanding you are saying: If the entire city of N.O. was on this board, then the SB would be moved from here?

Don't make me get the Bounty Hunter..

SB host city = money for your city, state. It is a big thing for Mr. Benson to be the host.
SB 2013 is in N.O. and nothing can change that. Even Goodell would not, can not change that.Talk about lawsuit against NFL from City of New Orleans, bad pr move for NFL.
What happened was wrong. Bad. This bounty thing was not a good idea.
Ok. Done. punishments, severe as they are, done.
Ummm, this is not treason against the USA or something. Really.
