So someone has to ask... future of the Saints in Nola

So has Gayle said what she plans to do going forward? She’s no business woman and I doubt she knows much about runnIng an NFL franchise. To be fair neither did Benson, he had only attended one game in his entire life. He wasn’t looking at football, he was looking at the red and black on a ledger and had the vision to see a great investment.
Does Gayle want to bother? Can she maintain the lifestyle she’s accustomed too or would it be easier for her to cash out.
I don’t know of anyone else with interest in Louisiana that has the capitol Benson had.

If she meant what she said in her open letter she knew what Mr. Benson wanted and it was for the team to stay in NO. Hopefully she honors his wishes.

Gayle ain't going anywhere and I think she's hot and would marry her in a heart beat but I love Mr Benson so probably not.

I was thinking the same thing. I’m sure their invested in NO so no moving anytime soon but wasn’t she wanting to move them in the past to San Antonio? I may be mistaken but I thought that’s what the argument with the kids stated over

From what I heard Tom has been grooming her for this very moment. Contrary to what you say, she was a business woman before she even met Benson. I heard an interview with Strief today on NFL Radio and they asked him if Gayle was involved with the team. He said Tom was always very involved and he was never seen without Gayle. She was right there with Tom on everything.

Gayle has that capital, the experience AND the desire. This is why Tom wanted to cut the others out of the picture. He was probably concerned they would ditch the team.

Re: So someone has to ask... future of the Saints in Nola

Everyone who has commented about "Ms Gayle" has had nothing but glowing things to say. She's from the area. Tom has been prepping her for this time. Tom removed his kids from the equation, I believe, for this very moment.

I think she will sell eventually - and I think she will make it contingent on the teams staying where they are.

Of course I could just be blowing smoke, but that's how things appear to me right now.

Back in the days after Katrina I seem to remember Ms Gayle was a big influence in keeping the Saints in New Orleans.
At the time San Antonio was a strong contender for ripping the team away.
