If we Win out! (a voice of reason)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; There are plenty of places within a 45 minute drive to New Orleans that players & coaches can live where there is next to no crime. I live in the Houston area now and people die here everyday from crime ...

There are plenty of places within a 45 minute drive to New Orleans that players & coaches can live where there is next to no crime. I live in the Houston area now and people die here everyday from crime too but you have players & coaches that choose to live in The Woodlands, Sugarland and towns like these that are 45 minutes from the stadium. No one says you have to be walking distance to the stadium. Every major city has crime so I don't believe that is a factor. It all comes down to money!

Last time I checked the dome was pretty much in the thick of things down there...walking distance from Bourbon St...and I know he has to go there at least 10 times a year. I don't think things are that much better out at the training facility...you know...where he works everyday. I could imagine they might pop over to have a po-boy one day and interrupt a hold-up in progress.

I am not trying to criticize NO, I am just talking about reality.

Yes I know, but reality is there is crime in every major city not just New Orleans and by the way New Orleans was not in the top 11 cities with the most crime for 2011. The 11 Most Dangerous Cities - US News and World Report. I grew up within that 45 minutes of New Orleans I was referring to earlier. I love New Orleans but I wouldn't live in the city itself. I prefer quiet living sitting out back listening to the crickets and locus but it's fun hitting the quarter a couple weekends per month.

I think he already lives in a pretty ritzy neighborhood not too far from the Dallas facilities. I could be wrong.

Yes...I love the city, too. I grew up in Gulfport and it was a tradition to go to New Orleans every Christmas, to see the real Santa at Maison Blanche, and before they closed we would make it to Ponchartrain Beach on POP day every summer.

I admit that my only source of info is what I have heard since Katrina. I saw something on the internet that listed NO as the most dangerous place in the world, but I didn't check it to see if it was real or something someone just threw up there. If nothing else, they were trying to state that NO has become a dangerous place to be.

I actually do not have any first hand experience since the storm except going to the airport and stopping in Fat City for a po-boy once or twice. Other than that, it is just hearsay, including Ron's earlier post.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

So Dallas has neighborhoods immune to the crime but not New Orleans?

Shouldn't matter what neighborhood he lives in should it? Especially since your previous reasoning stated the crime around the field....


Make up your mind or stop trying to make sense of something that doesn't make sense.

Well sh1t Shirlock.... Cowboys Stadium is a violent place.

Your right.. it all makes sense now... He is going to go and coach in Seattle where it is safe ... its even a top 10 safest city in America for 2012.

I think Seattle would be a little too far of a commute, as he has already chosen Dallas as his place of residence...FOR WHATEVER REASON!
