Statement from New Orleans Saints Owner Tom Benson

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If Bountygate didn't prove Scooter is a jackass then this letter to Benson for sure proves it. He is nothing but scum and will do anything to try and get his name out in the national spotlight...

He looked pretty alert at the game Sunday. Let's not rush into anything.

Re: Statement from New Orleans Saints Owner Tom Benson

Which brings me back to a new head coach if Payton leaves. The fact the article exists at all is because there is uncertanty of ownership in the next 5-10 years. It is said that this fact is one reason Payton may choose to seek employment somewhere else. No good coach is going to want to walk into a situation like this. We cant count on hitting gold with an up and comer assistant like we did with Payton. The same thing could be said for perspective free agents.

A Texas judge said as much in one of his rulings re: unnecessary lawyering...

He rightfully mentions how those legal fights can derail a franchise for years, if not decades...

Tom Benson's age is not conducive to a long, drawn out legal battle; he realistically doesn't have much time left and Duncan, rightfully asks him to do the responsible thing for the future health of the franchise...

If you've ever gone through a succession and watch families tear themselves apart as I have because the deceased was reluctant to make the "hard call" then you won't fully appreciate his article as I have...

People get really emotional over the team. Granted, the writing style was a bit much... Duncan could have written the article in a more matter-of-fact style, but regardless, he does bring some points that have certain validity to them.

I guess many have convinced themselves that the best outcome is for Gayle Benson to inherit the teams, and for Dennis Lauscha to run it... Gayle's business track record isn't exactly stellar, and Lauscha is a corporate man, who happens to be employed by a professional football team.

Wouldn't it be a pisser, Gayle inherits the teams, then turns around and sells them because she doesn't want to (or can't for that matter) deal with the NFL/NBA owners?

And if any of you think Tom Benson actually puts New Orleans first and is a great guy, I've got a great real estate deal for you...

Know your history or you're a doomed dumbarse to repeat it...

ANd that's the thing. One never ever knows what is around the corner. Any change could be the trigger of something BIG.

I didn't know that. Just read the intention to print and pack in Mobile, Alabama.
I have to say that the T-P was always my paper of choice when I visited New Orleans. I can now understand why you are a proponent, supporter, ADVOCATE for a.n.other.
