Ready in 2006, Sort Of

Word around the cooler is that Saints owner Tom Benson would like to move the Saints out of New Orleans and make San Antonio their permanent home. With the damage done to the Super Dome by Hurricane Katrina it is expected that the stadium will only be ready for a few games next season, and the Saints’ practice facility has been left completely unusable. It sounds like the Saints owner is trying to use this as an excuse for leaving New Orleans instead of sticking by the city that has supported the Saints for so long. I understand that teams are business and need to go where the money is, but a sports team becomes a part of that city, and to take that team out is like removing a chunk of the city itself. In times like this the Saints organization must have some loyalty to their city.
