The State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans provide subsidies and direct payments to the Saints organization that require issuance of debt instruments and interest payments. Rather than invest in infrastructure and education, the goodwill lathered on the Bensons and his FO was ostensibly to provide a competitive environment for a championship caliber sports franchise.

None of this has been worth it. Scandal, incompetence, blatant exploitation of the fan base, filing suit against citizens for 'infringement' and, worse, a pitiful excuse for a sports product over that entire period. Since the Super Bowl win, this organization, top to bottom, has abused whatever goodwill this city had. This is a Billion Dollar asset that takes more from the community than it provides.

If there was any honor in the Bensons, they should own up to the fraud. They should, at the very least, refund the season ticket prices to the fan base, and return the business incentives to the State and the City.

If not, there should be an organized boycott. Do not buy tickets. Do not buy merchandise. Do not support sponsors. There is no excuse acceptable for the "product" we are served and there is no way to get recourse otherwise.

I'm a Saints' fan, not a Stupid fan. We cannot and should not cast our loyalty to Stupid. Hold these people accountable, and reject this abuse.

    A little easier said than done to totally abandon the <a href="http://www.fromthisseat.com/index.php/blog/18965-why-do-new-orleans-saints-fans-chant-who-dat">Saints</a> over money. They create so much pride in the city of New Orleans and bring a lot to the local economy with hotel and tourism revenue.
