Benson is not just a regular old business man. He has to shoulder some of the blame... or are you suggesting that if I move to NO and say I want to start a business I should demand that the State build my offices and pay me to do business there? C\'mon...

I hate to say it but thats what happens when you have a woman as govenor. Most women don\'t give a hell about sports. All she is concerned with is how it is going to efffect the state in the long run. It is kind of stupid in my mind to have the state have any say in the New Orleans Saints business anyhow.
And THIS is bordering on narrow-minded and uninformed. All she is concerned with is how paying millions of dollars to renovate the Superdome and pay a sports franchise is going to have a long-term effect on the State... What the hell else is the governor of the state supposed to do? Make decisions with utter disregard for how the State will be effected?

Why is she involved in the Saints business anyhow? Because BENSON MADE HER GET INVOVLED. You think this is the State\'s fault? Benson DEMANDED money from the state. He demanded a new stadium, and all these other incentives. If Blanco decides to get \"uninvolved\" in the Saints, kiss \'em goodbye.

Learn the issue before spouting off about how women are just too stupid to be governors. :casstet:

How do you guys in Ohio and Texas become Saint\'s fans. I mean the Saints don\'t have that tradition of winning that some teams like 49ers and Cowboys have that comes with nation wide fans.

Im hearing the selling price for the Saints is close to the B-word.
You might be hearing that, hell Benson might even be asking that, but the Saints aren\'t even CLOSE to worth that.

As of 2003, NO team was worth a Billion. The Saints are worth just over half that.

The issue is this, Benson is the Best NFL Franchise owner in the world and he is always right. Do you know why this is true, becuase he will be the only NFL Franchise Owner to ever keep the Saints in New Orleans. Whatever he wants, just put up with it. If his demands are so horrible then why are other cities so willing to take and triple it if needed.

Born and raised in Louisiana, spent the the first 26 years of my life living there. Old habits are hard to break. Moved to Dallas in 99. Been here ever since. Reason? Jobs- smoke that, Blanco.

No team is worth a billon you say, the NFL and LA would pay what ever it takes to get a franchise there. I think incentives and percentages of profits over time won\'t get there but it will come close.

Reason? Jobs- smoke that, Blanco.
Priceless, I would put that in my signiture but I think that guy Halo would beat me.

I wouldn\'t have a problem with that. That\'s pretty true and positive. I think there are 4000 people employed in and around the New Orleans area due to the Saints including all the people selling tickets and who maintain the Dome. Of those 4000 people, about 60 t0 70 are millionaires.

Go for it Chuck.

Halo, are you including the scalpers? There\'s gotta be at least 4,000 of them outside every game I go to ...

I\'m not sure if it\'s intentional, but this has to be the funniest topic I\'ve read since joining a couple of weeks ago. Thanks guys, with Denver & the Iron Bowl coming up, I really needed a laugh ... all that \"woman\" stuff ...

:rollinglaugh:
