I'm not saying we would be as bad as the Colts, but it wouldn't be very pretty.
Apples and oranges, every indication is there that Drew is getting resigned and both sides are working on it. Just folks are loosing patience. It was clear manning was going to be nowhere in sight.

Drew needs top be on Airline Drive NOW...
Drew can't leave New Orleans like Poolballs did St. Louis. He has been tagged and can be tagged for 3 years so the only way Drew can play football is to sign with the Saints. The ball is in his and Condom's court! But as someone else posted in another thread, I do believe a deal will be done this week now that the suspensions have been handed out.

Vilma restructured but I don't know if that money frees any cap space.
Then again Vilma might be still playing this season...

Vilma's restructuring freed up a few mil (think it was 1-2 mil per year) in cap space, his suspension frees up much more (all).

True but the Indiana State Constitution specifically prohibits this kind of legislation. A Colts-Manning law would have been defeated in court as unconstitutional so it would bind neither party and it would do nothing but cost taxpayers money.

I imagine a law specific to Brees or Brees and the Saints would fail in Lousiana as well, although I have never had the occasion to study the Louisiana constitution (I took the Indiana bar exam). Likely, this is a stunt to get laymen to vote for the guy who proposed it.

I got two words for ya; slippery slope.
I want a Brees contract as much as any Saints fan, but there's just some places government shouldn't go. Levying taxes is a function of government, manipulating contracts between private individuals and/or businesses is NOT. This isn't North Korea.. yet.

This is why there should be public arse-whoopings...

This moron should have the living schiott beat of 'em...

The state's in a fiscal crisis, the only spending being cut includes those people who could use the help...

And this moron, freaking moron, is pulling dumb arse schiott like this...

Stay out of sports, you weren't good enough to play, and quit wasting our tax dollars, start voting term limits and budget compliance...

Drew will get paid enough, Condon will be told to STFU, and there will be enough left to sign the players necessary to win another championship so Drew can make the real money in endorsements...

...there, now I feel better...
