Benson Purchase Anniversary

People also forget how close he came to moving the team OUT of New Orleans.

Still...had Benson NOT purchased the team, there would have been no team here to go through Katrina or "almost" be moved to S.A. Instead, the Jacksonville Saints would be the team in question. No Benson, no team. Mecom was set to sell the team to a Jacksonville group and would have done so had Benson & his group not come forward at the last minute.

I will always be grateful to Benson for buying the team, the S.A. debacle notwithstanding.
