Re: Saints owner Tom Benson's ownership lawsuit 1 week away from trial

Do y'all understand that only non-voting stock in the franchise are up to debate? Tom Benson personally holds all of the voting stock so regardless of what is determined he will be in absolute control of the Saints. Read up on it a little. Even the story linked mentions this VERY important point. But it sounds more critical to falsely imply that actual ownership control is being judged, which it is not.

Underestimated? More like over-blown. Yes, lots of money in play, but not team ownership.

An important snippet from the article ...

The key question for many Saints fans is whether the trial would impact control over the teams -- it won't. The financial shares at stake involve only non-voting stock. Tom Benson maintains control by owning all of the voting shares in the team.

By the way, that picture of Tom, Gayle and Rita says it all. Tells the whole story just look at their faces. Family. Drama. Sucks.
