I\'m wondering how Saintfan feels about this. Care to chime in? By the way - nice cameo in the Bucs intro...

No. Emphatically.

In, my opinion, it\'s one of the most poorly run organizations in football.

Extremely well run ....

This is a well oiled machine in the front office , it works miracles in the front office that I generally only notice at the religious level ...

Consider this :

Football is a sporting venue that derives most of it\'s revenue from ticket sales in advance of the actual product hitting the market . Now despite the Saints going 9-7 in 2002 , the ticket sales went through the roof in 2003 .The PR department took every ounce of potential and ran it down the general publics throat and cashed in bigtime . Ownership and management have managed to get the state to guarantee revenue and consider building a new structure , despite suffering losses in state funds .Scouting has found the players with the potential to keep the Saints competitive and the GM has found away to keep the numbers under control and keep Fielkow off their butts .

The organization gets an A +++ in my book , it is the coaching that blows .

Despite seasons of :
7-9
8-8
9-7

The organization continues to sell out the Super Dome and get paid by the state for the potential of what could happen .

Only organized religion can make so much money from an individual and pay no taxes for the potential of a pay off after you are dead .

I think that I did specifically exclude the Marketing Dept.

The Saints undoubtedly excel in generating hype, no question there.

Yes, right now its poorly run.
Mickey Mouse is a bit extreme though
As usual, Whodat takes a statement and spins it. What Danno says is a much more accurate assesment that the spin Whodat is using, as per his usual.
