Now you listen to me, Tom Benson.

You will not now, nor will you ever, move my New Orleans Saints to San Antonio. How you think you can screw an entire city out of something they hold very dear is just bizarre to me. That's almost like taking Mardi Gras from us and moving it to Poughkeepsie. It's like taking Cafe Du Monde and moving it to Little Rock. It's like moving a team called "Jazz" to... Utah. (Seriously, the Utah Jazz? The Utah Choir, maybe, Utah Jazz, no. Just doesn't make sense.) I know you hate New Orleans and have for a long time, and believe you me, the feeling's mutual, so guess what you can do? Take your badrillion dollars, sell the team to someone who actually likes the city in which they work, and go crawl back to whatever Yankee hole you came from. They probably don't like you either.

Yet again, I'm with Nagin on this one. Should you take the Saints, you cannot take our logo nor our name.

Don't get me wrong, San Antonions or whatever you call yourselves. I LOVE your town and can't wait to visit again. But get your own team.

There's no more room in the NFL for another team. It's 32 teams; it's 2 to the 5th power. 8 divisions of 4, 2 conferences of 16. It's mathematically perfect - geometric, even. 33... hideous. No, you'll have to get a team to move TO New Orleans and take the Saints' name, like Carolina or something. You'll have to go with the Baltimore plan, not the Cleveland plan. Irony....

You still have the Hornets, though.

I would love to have the Saints stay in New Orleans. It would be wise for many reasons. I have seen gossip message boards that Tom Benson might move the Saints to L.A. because of the tv market. Let wait and see...
