Re: RIP Mr. Benson

I am, was glad he bought the Saints.
He was from N.O. He grew his businesses first here.
I am glad he finally got to see his Saints win the big game.

Sympathy for Ms. Gayle.
They really did love each other.
Poor lady.

I had the feeling that his fight with the the flu would end up in this manner. Definitely the best owner we have ever had. My hope is that the new owner keeps the hope alive and let's us win this one for Tom.

Win It For Tom!

19-0 Baby!

Sad day indeed. Hope the family does the right thing and keeps the infighting out of the public but I doubt it.

Why infighting? It's all been settled in court a few years back.
Gayle Benson is now owner of Pelicans and Saints.

RIP Mr. Benson. He brought us a Superbowl, and kept the Pelicans in town. Someone needs to organize a mass Benson Boogie through the city in his honor.
