Re: Rita sues!!!!

I have never even thought of the Saints not being in New Orleans. All of my entire life from birth til now all I know is the New Orlean Saints, I could never believe anything else,ever. As a fan there were many, many years that were horrid, even winning 1 game was a highlight in my life at times, then there were the hopeful middle of the pack years to keep your hopes up at possibly winning a banner to hang, now even though the last 3 seasons have kind of stunk we have a Superbowl to add to all the banners that now hang in the dome. The Saints have a rich tradition and an insane amount of fans that live and breath the team good or bad and taking that away would really hurt to the core. I don't want to feel like I lost a piece of my heart.

"Well I believe it all is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess we're gonna pretend
Let's see how far we've come"

What the heck is going on here? Let's see, your dad is wealthy. He marries someone that isn't your mom.

For Renee, Rita and Ryan: I would be **** at this point. I wouldn't want the teams to go to another family. Gayle would be the start but after her it would be her family. Not Bensons.

For Gayle: Heck yeah, I married the man and in Louisiana that means I own half. I am now a Benson so why not?

I'm torn.....

One thing I learned from drinking. You should always go Christmas caroling with a group. Oh, and always in mid-December.

I imagine it feels similar to the Raiders where the owner has the haircut of a 5 year old and takes selfies at Hooters but worse.

Re: Rita sues!!!!

Wasn't Rita just sent away from the team a couple of years ago for her poor behavior and attitude towards the staff? I thought they made her go thru some sort of manners/professional training before she could come back.

Seems to me if that was the case it appears the training didn't take.

If Mickey is there who cares about the token position of leader? In fact I'd want an owner who doesn't think they know everything about the biz and leaves it to the professionals (aka: Loomis).

If Payton and Loomis bail if the team is actually turned over to Gayle then that will be the determining factor as to the actual problem. If Rita is gone and they're seemingly happier than it was probably the right call by Tom.

Re: Rita sues!!!!

If the trust is so irrevocable, why not sue on those grounds? Why try and prove incompetence which is extremely difficult. I think there is more to this story than we've been told.

Removed items in a trust have to be replaced with items of similar value. That didn't happen. Items were replaced with items of lesser value which is illegal. That's the impasse and call to war from my understanding.

That still doesn't explain why they wouldn't sue on those grounds if in fact that is what happened.
