Just read this on Nola.com, we have offered brees 19 mil which is supposedly what he was looking for and said he will accept

I hope this isn't a joke but here's the link...

Someone asked Jennifer Hale (Fox NFL Sideline Reporter, Game Plan Co-Host, Sports Anchor at WVUE.) on Twitter if she was hearing of word of a Drew Brees press conference on Friday. She responded with, "I'm hearing Friday will be a very happy day for Who Dats:smileyhappy:" She followed that up with, "How quickly can Saints fans put together a parade? Say, by Friday? It might be a very happy day in Who Dat Land."

Don't take her word as 100% truth, but this might be what we have all been waiting for fellow Who-Dats!!

I ain't believing squat till I hear it from Drews own mouth.

I hope that the presser is going to be about him agreeing to a new contract with the Saints and not about something else...

I wonder how front-loaded that an average of $19M a year deal is going to be if it is in fact true, and how many years will it be for?

Hey! I thought this was gonna be a thread about godell's resignation!

SaintsBro 06-07-2012 09:57 AM

Yeah really, I hear you, Seer. Drew signs now, I'm just gonna shrug and be like, okay, whatever. About freaking time.. I'm past being excited about Drew news anymore. But if it crackles over the TV that Goodell suddenly resigns, I would be jumping around and clapping people on the back and buying rounds for everybody at the bar on Friday night!

There are so many conflicting reports on this....Triplett says no deal, of course Florio does too. A lot of local media reporting that its going to happen, national media and Triplett says no. So yeah....its whatever...i don't believe national media and its hard for me to believe the local guys cuz they just regergitate the stuff national guys put out.

I find it's the national guys regurgitating what the local guys are saying.

Florio is going to say exactly what Triplett says.

Fox 8 people should know something... they are the mouthpiece for the organisation by default - Fox 8 and the Saints are both owned by Benson.

I thought Florio released his story before Trip did? Either way I forgot that the people saying it is going to happen is coming from Fox 8 which is reassuring that it may be true. How mad is TP gonna be when they realize (if true) that they got scooped AGAIN on the biggest Saints news this offseason....

oh Halo, it's definitely the other way around...the TP just parrots back what the national people are saying. (I like you, man, but we might as well argue about this to pass the time.) Just go through and look at a selection of Saints stories on nola.com -- almost every single one of them has a link to somewhere else as its source. "So-and-so is reporting that"..."Fujita said in an interview in the Cleveland paper that..." "League sources have announced"...almost none of what the TP or nola publishes is new or "scoop" type stuff!

This is why the TP is cutting back the newspaper to almost nothing -- they have almost nobody doing real reporting anymore, just cut-and-paste from other sources. It's like a glorified blog now.

The details of the story of the bounty crap and the Brees contract stalemate has consistently been broken by national media, not the TP. Florio has his own sources, which include Triplett and the local guys, but he also has also others that are far different from what Triplett has access to.

But -- I agree with you that Fox 8 has an obvious inside line on the Saints.

Everybody else was totally blindsided by it, but it only took Lee Zurik like half an hour in the back room on the phone, to find out the exact identity of the person who was spreading the ridiculous "wiretapping" story around. Zurik's reporting on that piece was awesome!
