Tom Benson brings wife to meetings to get her ready to take over

Saints owner Tom Benson created quite a stir when he took control of his teams away from his kids and gave them to his wife.

And now, he’s using the NFL owners meetings as a chance to Gayle Benson to get caught up to speed if she needs to run the family business.

The Saints owner said Gayle sat in with him and coach Sean Payton and General Manager Mickey Loomis this week.

“This makes me feel great just to get out. The weather is so perfect here and we’ve had some good meetings this morning too,” he said, via Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate. “I was glad they let Gayle sit in on it. It was only supposed to be three per club, that was the coach, Mickey Loomis and I. But they let her sit in on the meeting too.

That was a really good read. I like the part about the two teams practicing Close to each other. Great athletes can always inspire each other.

Re: Tom Benson brings wife to meetings to get her ready to take over

as the power moves continue.

the older i get the less i trust people with this kind of money and take everything at face value. I always expect the worse. they have professional back stabbers hired and locked away to do nothing but planning and plotting years in advance.

Why are you so anxious to have a failed business person inherit the Saints?

As Shakespeare put forth through Hamlet - "...something is foul in the state of Denmark..."

The Rita-hate doesn't jive, and I've got questions that no media person has the balls to put forth to Benson...

I'd be straight, to the point, and wouldn't let him off the mat till I felt I got the truth out of him or he made an arse out of himself...

This guy has been a total d*uche most of his tenure as owner of the Saints...

In the Triplett interview, even Triplett left the door open at the end questioning the characterization of certain 'reported' events...
