RE: Red McCombs to invest in Saints?!

i don't expect it. i think they will stay in new orleans as long as new orleans plays ball. i don't think that means they need to agree with everything benson wants but they should be willing to give a little further and he should be willing to reduce some of what he is asking. meet in the middle

RE: Red McCombs to invest in Saints?!

We brought this up in a different thread... but notice the didn't credit specific source. So could be someone just making things up. The other points were... Benso will not share ownership of the Saints! He wouldn't share it with GM Mueller! He has every intention to handing the team over to his family members who are in the organization as it is. I also don't think the NFL owners would approve it either.

I don't think the NFL Owners would approve it as well. If any team moves, it will be to L.A.

Yeah but I don't see a team moving to LA anytime soon. Sure the NFL would like to have a team there but its more of a negociation ploy the NFL uses to get better contracts for its current teams... "give us this or will move". Vikings, Saints, and chargers that I know of are using this tactic.
