Confrontation between Rita Benson LeBlanc, Gayle Benson at Saints game preceded change in succession plan

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm sure the squeeze play was in a long time before the owners box confrontation. Gayle set the trap for Rita's bad temper in front of Tom and she bit right into it. Kinda of amazing to watch these rich ...

and she bit right into it. Kinda of amazing to watch these rich peoples games and the amount of money at stake. I look out my window at my
2003 Impala with the old Saints stickers on the bumper far removed from their kind of life.

I'm not surprised this was the straw that broke the camel's back. From what I read, Rita is a b**** to deal with in the office and it looks like she brought that same great attitude to her family. You don't put your hands in an aggressive manner to one of your elders no matter if you like them or not.

This legal fight is far from over, the sooner the better so Mr Benson and the team can focus on football and winning games

see that is why i am so stumped here. i do not remember anything like this being said about her till all of this started.

If what Rita said is going on i can understand loosing it. and if the games are this complex i can see all of this as just a part of a well thought out plot.

the rich have nothing better to do than map this kinda of crap out.

either way you look at Gayle has in little over 10 years looks to make out like a fat rat and gain control of huge portion of Tom's business wealth

I'd just like to know if Gayle has ever paid any restitution to her creditors/contractors in her failed business attempts...

And unlike most Saints fans, I do not like Tom Benson and don't buy his I'm sacrificing to keep the team in New Orleans act...

It was Rita who stepped out with Tagliabue to calm the masses after Benson was trying to set the team up in his backyard in his adopted home of San Antonio...

Rita may/may not be batsh*t crazy, but Gayle's strikes me as a gold digger and easily manipulated Benson's ego...

Benson's only direct living heir is deceased son's daughter, give it to her and let her decide what to do...

But I get the feeling Rita got tired of being a female figure-head, puppet and decided she would step back in once Tom was out...

Read that TOTAL BS article where all these anonymous sources recalled tales of Rita - that BS shouldn't have been printed unless Vargas et al could state the names of the supposed sources...

Many of whom were 'former employees'; well let me just say that I've got former employees who tell anyone I'm a jerk even though I paid them top pay over my competitors, paid their health and 24 hr accident insurance, and I performed plumbing and painting services afterwork on his home for two weeks without any compensation...

Without telling anyone that information, he geauxs out of his way to disrupt my business aka "stick it to me" because I fired his girlfriend because she gave out my business banking information to a cold call credit card processing salesman...

So until we have all the information, I'll just pass on the what I've heard of Rita stories...

So Rita and Gayle's confrontation is why Tom decided to screw all 3 of his kids?

my thoughts on Rita isn't from some article, people have heard from people she has fired and they have that impression of her besides ....

I really can't stand all this legal back and forth blah blah blah just concentrate on business and football

Not beating up on you Ragin, but...

Somehow in the last thirty-five years, British tabloid reporting has comprised the integrity of our journalism...

As Americans, we've forgotten this concept and really need to reign this in...

It's dangerous and it has lead us down a dangerous path...

Re: Confrontation between Rita Benson LeBlanc, Gayle Benson at Saints game preceded change in succession plan

I'd like to post this question for thought...

If Benson is so sound in mind, and he's still has the same business acumen he's always had...

Why would he turn over a billion dollar sports entertainment empire to a woman he's known far less than his own family, has failed in business, still owes money to creditors, and has no record, reputation of success of her own?!?
