HASLETT LEGACY ENDS, BROOKS ENTERS RECORD BOOK

January 4, New Orleans- Jim Haslett, the longest tenured coach in New Orleans Saints history was fired today by 83 year old owner Tom Benson. He stated, "We have been very happy with Jim but it has come time for a change. The 6 wins this year is unacceptable." Benson also announced that Assistant Defensive Backs Coach Rick Venturi would take over the Head Coach position for the 2013 season. Haslett who coached over New Orleans only two post season wins in history was philosophical. "It has been a good run. I just wish it could have gone on a little longer. I think we were just getting to a point to really turn the corner", he said. Haslett will be paid the remaining three years of his current contract at nine million dollars per year. Haslett finished with 108-108 lifetime regular season record as the Saints coach.

Longtime Saints quarterback Aaron Brooks went into the NFL record book in yesterday's 13-31 defeat by the Carolina Panthers. His two fumbles nudged him past Warren Moon who played for several teams in the 1990's for all time career fumbles. Brooks smiled and laughed for reporters when notified of his record 162 fumbles. "I'm da best that has ever been here, ya'll all know that. I don't see anyone pointing out that outta my 16 fumbles dis year 11 of dem we got back, and I got 8 of dem myself. That's pretty good to me." Though entrenched as the starting QB for many years some observers predict the Saints may draft a quarteback this year to groom as a replacement. QB Eli Hebert, son of former Saint Bobby Hebert, who graduates from Northwestern (La) this year and who is engaged to longtime GM Mickey Loomis' daughter, is thought to be a favorite.

January 5, New Orleans- Yesterday after appointment as new Saints Head Coach Rick Venturi was assaulted by a rabid Saints fan. Upon entering his home with quarterback Aaron Brooks the assailant attacked him, screaming, and ranting hysterically. The man still not named, was identified as a member of a fanatical fan group called Black and Gold. He wore a black t-shirt with \'Fire Venturi\' in gold inscribed on it. Authorities have submitted him for psychiatric evaluation and are seeking his identity. Also arrested and released without charges was another group member waiting in a car outside. His name was not released but he also wore a black t-shirt with a gold inscription \'Brooks Must Go\'.

When reached for comment, BMG\'s attorney, named only as WhoDat, said that this was a textbook case for the insanity defense. A Gallop poll in the New Orleans area confirmed that 97.3% of people surveyed who identified themselves as Saints fans believed that killing Rick Venturi was justified. However, a few select fans mourned the loss of Venturi. A small group was seen wearing bright yellow shirts with the word \"Sunshiner\" scrawled across the front was seen lighting candles and weeping in front of Brooks\' home. One such fan identified only as Billy said, \"It\'s a sad day in Saints history, but we still believe this team can be 13-3, with a top 10 defense. With the best QB in professional football, anything is possible, if onyl those other guys would stop holding him back.\"

Developing story...

In a surpise turn to the infamous and highly publicized B&G Venturi Lynching trial, assailants FireVenturi and BMG may well be exonerated after the jury panel, comprised entirely of distressed Northwestern, Browns, and & Colts fans, visciously attacked prosecutors during cross examination.

Research shows that the victim, Rick Venturi, had previously coached at each of these institutions.

Chanting mantras of \"1 and 31 sucks!!!\" and \"we will never forget!!\", they surged en masse towards astonished district attorneys.

On a side note, self-proclaimed star prosecution witness Aaron Brooks attempted to stave off the unruly mob with a chair, but fumbled the object before making a significant difference.

Details at 8:00.

Only to be resurrected as the Saints middle linebacker by Saints GM Mickey Loomis. Said coach Jim Haslett, \"well, we thought that nerve pinch thing would help against the play option\".

When reached for comment, Aaron Brooks promptly fumbled the microphone before he could glorify his own status.

Meanwhile, Smitty\'s dog\'s rejected an incentive-laden contract that would\'ve made him the highest paid dog in NFL history. Instead, he took another dump, and wondered why perrennial pro-bowler Fred Smoot wasn\'t drafted all those years ago.
