Video: Fielkow takes the "high road" in commenting about Benson

Arnie Fielkow (now on New Orleans City Council) expresses his disappointment about being removed from the Saints' front office, but remains a "gentleman" in the way he puts it across.

Short video clip:

He was cool about it. He was just speaking the truth. Nothing wrong with that. I'd be upset as well if I were a part of the Saints' organization and let go. It's a dream job, I'm sure.

Word!

Wondering what Arnie will do now that he's leaving the City Council. Think he might be making a play to come back to the Saints?

He's taking a job with one of the NBA players organizations.

He was let go after Katrina for standing up to Benson and the city and speaking out against moving the Saints.

He recently resigned from the City Council to take a job with the NBA. There's a thread on the EE about it.

Arnie Fielkow steps down

Thanks. Also found this article (Fielkow has a pretty decent resume'):

He still sold out the people who campaigned and voted for him. That's real commitment to NOLA.

Dude that is kinda harsh isn't it. He showed commitment, he got canned by Benson for blowing the whistle about a move. He also served in public office probably one of the very few honest men. He got a better offer, what person wouldn't do that to better your situation for you and your family?

He did a lot to keep the franchise in the City, at personal cost, so he's a hero to me.

"Save our Saints" was just yesterday.

He's taking a job with the NBA Retired Players Association or something like that.

Dwight K. Saint has disabled reputation
I've actually heard from inside sources quite the opposite - that he was one of the main people behind trying to move the Saints.

Well, never say never, but I really doubt that that is true. The following link is interesting. I'm not offering as any kind of evidence of Fielkow's positive intentions, but just as a time capsule. Unbelievable how much better things are now.

So he was publicly crusading to keep the team--to the point that he lost his job--but it was all just a clever ruse so he could actually move them.

I think your "inside sources" need to lay off the crack.
