Hear me out....if you believe in conspiracy

I don't know how to state this that it will make any sense, but here it goes. This is just a possibility and I have no way of verifying any of these thoughts, but....

The NFL has never had a host city and team in the Super Bowl. They have a strong possibility this year that the Saints could be the team to be the first. However, if the host city and team are one in the same, does not the NFL stand to lose serious money? It figures that if you bring in teams from outside the host city, they will bring in tons of money for hotels, restaurants, side bets...... If the Saints were to make it to the Super Bowl this year, the NFL would stand to lose serious money (again, I have no way to prove this...it's just a thought) if there was no controversy that is......

But two things happen with all the controversy going on. 1. The Saints will be so mentally shaken that they have a horrible season and they will not make the playoffs, let alone the Super Bowl. NFL problem solved 2. (and this is were it gets interesting) If the Saints were to make it to the Super Bowl this year, can you imagine all the media hype to rehash the year, bringing even more attention to the Super Bowl than ever before...making even more money for the NFL.

Just a thought if you believe in conspiracies.....I think I am beginnig to believe in them.

If there is a conspiracy of bias against the Saints, it's mainly because Goodell and the league offices dislike the Saints organization and, in any case, are not fans of the Saints in general having a historically great offense. The fear over the player injury lawsuits makes it easy for them, therefore, to scapegoat the Saints.

This is a personal vendetta and a scapegoating the Goodell finds it convenient and easy to proceed with given the targets.

If ever there was a time for the NFL to help our New Orleans it would be this year if we did make it to the Super Bowl. Win or lose if the Saints made it to the Super Bowl in their home town N.O. would errupt. Local and regional fans would spend their money like crazy. I think having the Saints and another team would benefit N.O. way more than 2 other teams that no one here really cares about. You are still going to have the other teams fans come, and the people who go to S.B.'s, and Saints fan from around the country coming home. I don't know what the NFL's deal is with the Saints. I'm sure if they set out and investigated all 32 NFL franchises they would find a lot worse things going on the Bountygate, Vicodin scandals, and now this eaves dropping story.

So Goodell is behind Payton Manning's neck injury too? My god, how far down does this rabbit hole go?

I am convinced that somebody is trying to sabotage the Saints but I don't know who or why. Disgruntled former employee, someone higher up in the NFL chain, or even Goodell himself. Somebody has decided that the Saints need to be destroyed and nobody knows where all this animosity is coming from.

I guess this is what happens when you start lighting up every defense you play and nobody can figure out how to stop our offense.

My tin foil hat thoughts. There is another SuperBowl coming up in the near future, inNew York City. Now, which franchise would the NFL rather see in a "home team/home town SuperBowl? Small market Saints in the Superdome? Or huge market Giants (or long shot Jets) in their new monstrosity? I wonder how much of this would have happened if NYC was NOT hosting a SB in the very near future.

(My tin foil hat is starting to resemble the Tin Mans head from Oz.)

Obviously the SB brings in tourists from all around, not forgetting corporate money too. The biggest losers in this would be the hotels. The restaurants and bars would still make a fortune, but the hotels will not be to capacity and maybe the trinket sales will be down too.

Hmmm... Not sure I get this. The NFL makes their money from ticket and merchandise sales, they get nothing from hotels, restaurants, etc.
Because a team is playing at home I don't see how that would affect the NFL's cash flow....

On the other hand, because it's the Saints and they are a small market team, I can see the NFL not wanting this type of historic event happening here. They would stand to make a lot more $$ on this type of event happening in New York or one of the big markets.
