Yes the book goes into great detail on that relationshipHaven't read the book but I know some of the Persia family and I've heard that the book goes into some detail on that relationship.
Anyone ever wonder how Tom Benson, poor guy from the 9th ward, got into the car business?
Anyone remember this old commercial?
The Persia family had a chain of dealerships and Benson worked for them as a General Manager.
Tom Benson has some bodies in his wake.
Um, this one? Information is always useful...
New Tom Benson book illustrates controversial, tragedy-filled life of polarizing Saints owner | NOLA.com
Benson is indeed a smart and shrewd businessman. He knew what he wanted and was determined to get it. He did not get where he is without some folks getting taken out though. He has some enemies out there but he's also a hero to many. That is oftentimes the reality in the commercial world.The way I see it, Benson is a great American success story. He is hard working, smart, tough, and never gives up. He has the mentality of a good football player.
I think the decline in the team could possibly be a result of his decline in health. We'll know more by the end of the 2017 season.
I'm sure this has been posted around here about Rita before, but it's good stuff:I did not.
But I did read Rita Benson's new book...."Mine, mine, mine!"
