San Antonio Saints? Maybe... (small update)

After next season, Benson can get out of his Louisiana Superdome lease by paying $81 million.


Sorry if this has been posted.

So, the San Antonio Saints? Interesting. Sounds a fair bit far fetched, but very intriguing proposition nonetheless.

There has been a lot of talk about the Saints moving, etc. because they are trying to get a new stadium built. Interesting though....

I really hope they don't move.

They don't necessarily need a name change. Oakland went to LA and back with the same name. St. Louis is still the Rams, despite coming from LA. San Diego is still the Chargers, despite coming from (you uessed it) LA.

McCombs still has to sell the Vikings. It is looking more and more likely that Fowler won't become the owner.

Why would Fowler's "New York Partners" let him be the man to lead them? He has shown he is incapable, likes to make up lies about himself, and does not have enough funds. It is all really strange to me. Either way for the Vikings sake, I hope theVikings sell.

Although I persoanlly think it would be a bad move for the saints to move, I think it could very well happen. What I don't undertand is why they would even consider moving. They have a fine fan base and they are in a great city. Plus, I costs millions to relocate a team.
