Selling Saints, Pelicans greatest gift Tom Benson can give New Orleans

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Hog wash! Maybe Loomis needs to run just one franchise........the Saints. Two franchises looks like more than he can handle. Part of our problems may exist because Loomis has too much responsibility....

Duncan doesn't give a damn about giving New Orleans a gift. He wants to get rid of Payton and he figures the only way that will happen is if the Saints are owned by someone else. He threw the Pelicans in there as camouflage. No wonder so many people dislike him.

Jeff Duncan is a filthy rat aboard a sinking ship called The Times Picayune.
He's had it out for the Saints ever since Payton called him out for lying and being a hack in general.
This is the print media equivalent of click-bait.
Just say no.

Re: Selling Saints, Pelicans greatest gift Tom Benson can give New Orleans

You gotta read past the headlines fellas...

Actually, read the article...

Look, Duncan is Duncan, but he's not a complete hack like many of the naitonal writers...

As I said on the other thread (can we merge these mods?!?), Duncan sees how old Tommy Used Cars is, he's there, everyday, seeing the sharks, lawyers, swimming round...

He's sees two combatives in Gayle Gold Digger and Spoiled Rita...

And he's seen what has happened in other franchises...

And don't think he doesn't have "off the record" conversations with Saints personnel and have a better idea of what's transpiring right now...

If Tom dies before the team could go to more stable ownership, he sees the strong possiblitiy of the team exposed to moving and there being a faceless, non-identity holding company running the team and moving it and there being no one to hold accountable...

Take a breath and read and think on the story...

Let's say another billionare buys the Saints, do you think their kids, ex-wives, current whores, and girlfriends will be more upstanding then Gayle or Rita?

Tom isn't the first billionaire with baggage. It's also not against the law to be in your 80's and to own a franchise. He's trying to hand the team off to Gayle to keep the team, and his legacy, in New Orleans. It's our best chance.

I hated Tommy boy years ago, but it wasn't until Gayle showed up that he became a normal human being. Because he has made a turn around, I forgive him for his Katrina threats.

Whatever Duncan says, it's only a black eye on the team and city. Nothing he says will have any impact on Benson. Everything he says is read by the national press and fuels NFL.com hacks. Duncan only writes this to propel his own career and so people will say "oh how cutting edge to write that" when it's garbage. I'm more embarrassed about Duncan than the Rita, Tom and Gayle feud.
