Poison pill in Paytonís contract may have been a buffer against LeBlanc

Lost in the fact that the contract extension signed by Saints coach Sean Payton was rejected by the league office due to a term that would have invalidated the deal upon the departure of G.M. Mickey Loomis is the question of why that language was in the contract in the first place.

A league source tells PFT that Payton wanted to be sure that Loomis would be present to serve as a buffer between the coach and Rita Benson LeBlanc.

Officially listed as owner/executive vice president of the team, LeBlanc is expected to have more, not less, power during the term of Paytonís next contract. So Payton prefers not to have to deal with LeBlanc. To ensure that Payton wonít have to, Loomis needs to be there.

Maybe, then, if that term canít be included, Payton really wonít want to stay in New Orleans.

Again, solid PROOF that Sean Payton WILL NOT be going to Dallas.
Rita is a sweetheart, and although I'm sure she's an aggressive little minx (she has to be - she's part owner) she's NOTHING compared to the overbearing Jerry Jones.

Alright everybody, The Dude is in mating season again. If he humps your leg, just pop him on his nose and he'll release his paws and chill.

This actually explains a whole lot.

Remember this back in April:

Hmmmmm, and now Payton's divorced???? I wonder if something happened. If it did, then Payton's now free to get it on with Rita.

BUT, she is the future owner of the Saints. That adds at least 3-4 on a scale of 1-10!!!
