A 5 sec google search brings this from 2012.

Poison pill in Paytonís contract may have been a buffer against LeBlanc | ProFootballTalk

Cool link. Let's see what it says:
... why that language was in the contract in the first place. A league source tells PFT ...
Aren't we done with anonymous league sources?
Until I hear it from Sean Payton...

Re: Judge Says Saints Owner 'At War With Himself'

This team is a mess from top to bottom. Dang. After Benson finally came around to running the franchise with an open pocket book he became an excellent owner. Now we're in a transition period and nothing is stable.

Thank god for Sean Payton. He is going to be the driving force going into this new season and he will keep this team focused. This will undoubtedly be a locker room distraction but hopefully a small one.

Meanwhile, how the hell does a judge from a city with ties to moving the Saints get to be in charge? Didn't this guy used to be San Atonio mayor or something like that?

Re: Judge Says Saints Owner 'At War With Himself'

This empire was built by Tom Benson, and I am talking about his financial empire. He is the only mother ****er entitled to it. Unless it can honestly be represented that he doesn't have his faculty the courts have no business ****ing with what this man built

At war with himself doesn't make any sense

disclaimer: I did not read the article at all

Cite your source or move along...

This crappe is as bad as these hacks posing as journalists such as Vargas who dish all this dirt on Rita with these unnamed sources...

Vargas and his like should go back to perpetual high school and right gossip columns...

Poison pill in Paytonís contract may have been a buffer against LeBlanc | ProFootballTalk
Last point first, you're not doing research for me, your backing up your first statement...

Secondly, from the source you cited -

Lost in the fact that the contract extension signed by Saints coach Sean Payton was rejected by the league office due to a term that would have invalidated the deal upon the departure of G.M. Mickey Loomis is the question of why that language was in the contract in the first place.

A league source tells PFT that Payton wanted to be sure that Loomis would be present to serve as a buffer between the coach and Rita Benson LeBlanc.

Officially listed as owner/executive vice president of the team, LeBlanc is expected to have more, not less, power during the term of Paytonís next contract. So Payton prefers not to have to deal with LeBlanc. To ensure that Payton wonít have to, Loomis needs to be there.


This does not say Payton leaves if Rita is in charge, it says that he wants it in his contract that he doesn't have to report to the owner who will be Rita but to Loomis...

Sure many coaches want the freedom to run the team without daily interference or meddling from an owner, this is not exclusive to Payton...

Tom, of his own free will, created those trusts. They are what they are for very good reasons. Nobody held a gun to his head.

Yep. Pretty much it. It was Benson who established the trusts, so indeed he did whatever he wanted with his money; now he wants to replace tangible assets with IOU's...

woulda coulda shoulda type of reporting in my book,

editors view point
lets us spice up the piece with ambiguous tid bits here and there that we do not need to prove at anytime.

sensationalism baby sensationalism

rich like this means disinformation everywhere about everything from both camps. it is just like politics. lie baby lie just listen to the lawyers and do not screw it up.

we will never know the truth.

for we are just fans in their eyes.

we can be replaced by other fans in another city in a heart beat
