Benson abandons New Orleans

There are uncomfirmed reports that Tom Benson, the owner of the Saints, will move the franchise to San Antonio next season, and then to the City of Angels (i.e. L.A.) the next.

While I can understand why Benson wants to move the Saints, his timing could not be worse. New Orleans has plenty of things to worry about right, the least of which should be a billionaire owner and his millionaire players.

Of course, if the Saints were to stay in New Orleans then there is no telling if and when the Superdome would be ready for games. Hell, there may not even be people in New Orleans next season to watch the games. Benson stands to make a lot more money if he can move the team to L.A. instead of keeping it in New Orleans.
