New Orleans Saints | Key Moments in Saints History

Russell B. Long - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In 1966, at the request of former National Football League Commissioner Pete Rozelle, Long and Congressman Hale Boggs used their influence to pass legislation that allowed for the merger of the American Football League and the National Football League (NFL). Without the legislation, the merger would have been prohibited by anti-trust laws governing monopolies. In exchange for ensuring the passage of the legislation, Long and Boggs requested that Rozelle award the next NFL expansion franchise to New Orleans.[5] Rozelle complied, and Long and Boggs joined Rozelle in announcing that New Orleans had obtained the New Orleans Saints on November 1, 1966.[6]

I do have to say in the short time I've been a member in here I've never been made more welcome to any forum or group before. I can say with pride and if I'm allowed I'm a member of the Who Dat nation.
I will share what I can in a little more than two weeks. My wife and I are flying to Rome tomorrow morning and then off on a cruise with stops in other Italian ports, Turkey and Greece.

Enjoy the places there are amazing even though Naples is a basket case. Greece is just something else have been there many times and love it as well.

Re: Saints History

Thanks everybody for all your help and input some great stuff in all the links there. I can truthfully say never been on a forum where I got such immediate help from people without any trash talk because I didn't know anything.
