Saints moving to S.A.

Postby TheOneManShow 26 » Tue Oct 18, 2005 1:24 am

The move is all but official. Sad move by the NFL, to move the Saints to S.A. after such a tragedy.

Will update more later.

It may be disappointing but it's the most logical. That place isn't going to be recovered by next season. And maybe not by the one after that.

If the NFL wasn't to geographically correct, LA would already own the Saints. It's a shame San Antonio gets a team first.

yes, because LA has proven that it can sustain a football franchize!

Don't even TRY to deny its market power! Two basketball, two baseball, and no football team? Los Angeles deserves a football team based on its market and that's all there is to it.

I'm willing to bet money the saints will be in L.A. Next year, The NFL wants a team there, and so does the city.

The L.A. Saints of New Orleans eh?

You guys?!? Whoa, whoa, whoa... I'm a Viking. Let's not beat a dead horse here. LA should be the next city to get a team and that's all there is to it.

The name "Saints" doesn't make any sense anywhere but New Orleans. I think a name change is very possible. How about the San Antonio Cowboys... no, wait a minute... the San Antonio Texans... darn it, that won't work... I got it... and now introducing... the San Antonio... uh... San Antonians... Yeah!!!! That's the ticket!!!

Los Angeles won't get a pro team until they build a stadium for a pro team. the rose bowl and the colliseum are too old for pro teams to play there. there are no luxury boxes and internet cafes and that crap...until that is done los angeles will have to go without.

sucks that the saints are now the 3rd team in texas. i hate texas. move them to oklahoma.
