Top Ten Ways To Help The New Orleans Saints

Wed Nov 23, 2005 6:17 am

More specifically, the Top Ten ways to make the New Orleans Saints more lucrative, entertaining, and competitive:


10. Instead of winning the coin flip, the only way Saints' opponents can get the opening kick-off is to guess the power-ball numbers.



9. Tom Benson allowed to remove shirt in owner's box.



8. Opponents must allow former FEMA Director Michael Brown to construct defensive game plan.



7. Benson Cadillac becomes exclusive dealership for New Orleans police department.



6. Pre-Katrina "dome dogs" mandatory pre-game meal for opponents.



5. Paul Tagliabue is Rex.



4. Instead of sniffing ammonia to alert senses before games, opponents must stick heads in discarded refrigerators on city streets.



3. FEMA trailers instead of hotel rooms for visiting teams.



2. Aaron Broussard controls flow in opponents' locker-room whirlpool.

And the number one way to make the Saints more lucrative, entertaining, and competitive…

1. NFL declares San Antonio the "Official New Orleans landfill."

Hypocrisy. It's the new black for liberals.

Probably not going to happen. If they go anywere, it would be L.A. But they are going to at least give it a shot here, which is the best thing to do.

It wouldn't last... I have said it before, there may have been like 68,000 people at their first game in the Alamodome, but I have yet to meet one person who paid to be there. I was in the FRONT ROW and didn't pay a damn dime.

The NFL announcement of last week I took as a not too subtle reference on the subject....
The Saints and the NFL will eventually return to LA, but not Louisiana; the other "LA"; Los Angeles.
Sad but true.

It was reported in today's local paper that each of the last three homes games, 2 of which are in Baton Rouge, the other in San Antonio, has only sold roughly 27,500 seats. Sounds like the interest is wearing off in San Antonio..........that and the fact that the class team of that town, the Spurs, are off and running and primed to win another NBA title.

Btw, Steve, tell me you're not paying Letterman's writers for your top 10 list  wink .

#7 was hilarious, btw. And 2 and 3 had me on the floor, as well.

Actually, how about the City seizes the team using Emminent Domain and the Saints get some decent decisions made?
