    We finally win a fucking playoff game and Benson is balking to skip town. We wants 300 million sunk into the Dome, or a brand new stadium. He says the Superdome isn't good enough.

    Well it's good enough to host Superbowls (including next years), Sugar-Bowls, Final-Fours (2003 I believe) and some of the biggest concert draws in the world.

    He makes so much money off that team it's sickening. Now the bastard wants a little more. We've stuck by this sorry organization for years. Now we have a decent product. If he moves the team, sopmeone will kill him. Hang him from Pat O'Brien's on Bourbon Street.

    Ice Cream Man, we can't let it happen!

    wouldn't surprise me a bit.
    that's the reality of today's sports. gimmie a stadium or i'm moving. take it from a BROWNS fan as you watch the mayor of BALTIMORE brag about stealing your team. the owners don't care about fans all they care about is money. there should be options for people living in that city to buy teams ala GREEN BAY. sorry about the rant, but if you need someone to harass the politicians who are in on this don't hestiate to ask me to sign a petition.

    whoa relax relax relax Doucet i heard this before that they were going to move to San Antonio and the Spurs would come to New Orleans i dont think its going to happen although you are probably closer to things down there then i am...i really think its posturing by Benson...Superdome is one of the oldest stadiums in the NFL now so he probably wants some money pumped into it now when the team is doing good...he can't ask you guys for 300 million all those years that they were playing mediocre football
    I think Benson is a good guy, one of the better owners in the nfl...i dont see him moving the Saints (oh god i hope not) but being from a city (Cleveland) where that occurred i can tell you it sucks for the fans

    as long as he isn't giving out ultimatums like get this done by then or we're out it might be the same balking and talking that doesnt lead to anything

    you guys should think about giving him the money though...pleasssssssse i know its easy for me to say because i dont live down there and won't get my taxes raised but please i liked this team since i was kid don t let them go doucet
    give me tom's number i'll give him a buzz

    Is Benson buds with that shit-bag Moddell? Because if he's takin' abvice from that weak fuck I feel sorry for you guys. Like topik killer said, if you need some names on a petition send it to me, another Browns fan. these owners are getting ridiulous. How much money is enough for these greedy souless bastards?

    I'll try to chill Ice-Cream man. I don't think it will happen either. But if it does, the shit is going to hit the fan. Benson is greedy. That's the bottom line. The Superdome is old, but it's still an incredible place to watch a game. The atmosphere is incredible when the fans show up. I was amazed when the Kingdome was imploded at the "archaic" old age of 23.

    What happened to Cleveland was ridiculous. And it goes without saying that the Raven's season is like a knife turning in the stomach of Browns fans.

    this is off topic, but look at
    the SPURS. they wanted a new building and got it in the ALAMODOME. how old is this place and they want a new one.
    yeah this building has problems ,but they should have known that 50,000 or whatever it holds aren't going to come to a basketball game every night. and these teams that say there losing money should be forced to open their books and determine whether it is where they play (VANCOUVER) or mismangement like MODELL did. and make him sell rather than try to keep the team for baby boy DAVID's sake.
