oh boy if this i true

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What if we turned the tables and listed what all the state spent ridiculous amounts of money on that they can\'t live up to their end of the old bargain? I\'ll bet there are quite of few wasted money projects ...

What if we turned the tables and listed what all the state spent ridiculous amounts of money on that they can\'t live up to their end of the old bargain? I\'ll bet there are quite of few wasted money projects padding the good ole boys pockets while the state foots the bill. Maybe Blanco ought to practice what is preached.

Just a thought, but is it possible that there is some truth to the belief that all car salesmen are crooks?

No question ... car salesmen are crooks and make a good living being so (no offense to certain folks ... you know who you are ... I\'m sure you were perfectly honestly selling tons of cars driven only to church by little old ladies).

Don\'t have a problem with Benson being a rich man ... in fact, bully for him. Grab what you can reach while you\'re here. But at the same time ... Saints fans spend a considerable amount of cash to support our misbegotten team. Don\'t we deserve the effort to assemble a competitive team? Haven\'t we earned it by now?

Geaux Saints ... anyway ...

.. I am just wondering what did you guys think Benson the man, or Benson Football, or The New Orleans Saints Inc. was/were going to do with the money from the State? Subsidize public education? End hunger in Bangladesh? NO, HE/THEY WANT GUARANTEED PROFITS! You know, DISPOSABLE INCOME... you know, that stuff you buy goodies with, like big screen TV\'s, houses, yachts...

The Saints aren\'t asking money from the State because they don\'t make money, the are asking the State for money because they could be making more somewhere else...

..besides, don\'t you guys (or some of you) complain about the Saints being cheap? How do you think you entertain multi-millionaire prima-donna players/coaches you want to bring in? You don\'t take them to Cooter-Browns for oysters on the half and Around the World in 80 Beers, you know?
.. . don\'t they use that yatcht every year for promotional cruises with fans, and business partners?
... it\'s all about the perks, man..

What did you think? The state needs to worry about its own problems. Benson can move the team to L.A. and buy his un-born great-great-great grandkids yachts if he wants to.

But he dont!

He wants to keep the team there but its a business, the state tried to screw him out of the money last year or at least put it off till the last minute.
