Some eye opening comments in there. The article is a little confusing at times, but worth a read:

Saints’ announcer tells about Payton’s ‘cleansing effect’

By Brinda Fuller Willis

JACKSON — Longtime New Orleans Saints radio broadcaster Jim Henderson told the Touchdown Club of Jackson that new head coach Sean Payton has had a “cleansing effect” since his arrival as head coach.

Henderson doled out a litany of personnel changes Payton made, getting rid of troublemakers to produce the new New Orleans Saints, who are off to a 5- start. Henderson’s list included Wayne Gandy, Lecharles Bentley, Kendall Jacocks, Donté Stallworth, Courtney Watson, Darren Howard, Dwight Smith, Boo Williams and Johnathan Sullivan.

did you notice the comment at the end "the saints are a team on the way to los angeles"? I haven't heard him say that before! Say it ain't so, Jim.

There is no way Henderson said the Saints are on their way to Los Angeles. I don't know what the reporter thought she heard, but there's no way he would have said that. Lots of mistakes in the article. I guess when she said "Clemson has a world of speed" she was referring to Colston.

this is what she wrote:
Henderson let the Touchdown Club in on some of his predictions and personal picks about the League, naming Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers as the best receiver in the NFL, Clemson has a great world of speed, Drew Brees is one of the least sacked quarterbacks in the League, Payton is probably on his way to be named Coach of the Year, the Saints are a team on its way to Los Angeles and jokingly … Cincinnati is the University of Miami in the NFL.

This is what I think she meant to write:

That's what I was thinking... man what a bad place for a typo though for anyone reading the article that isn't a diehard Saints fan and would know better.

I emailed the article to Henderson. If I get a reply I will post it. Hopefully, it is just poorly written (I think that is the issue) and the paper will print a correction.

I bet Henderson replies to your email. He is a stand up guy and will admit if he said it or set the record straight quickly if he did not. Henderson is part of the fabric of New Orleans now and he will probably be offended if the author misquoted him on something everyone is so passionate about. Surely we would have heard Jim comment on this before now if he truly felt that way.

If Henderson said that the Saints were on their way to LA, he deserves to be roasted. That is inexcusable. If he didn't say it, I hope he clears his name quickly. Otherwise, I have lost all respect for him. I will reserve judgement with the hopes this was a mistake and is cleared up.

Relax, if he did say it, I am sure he was just joking around.

the "and jokingly" came after the L.A. comment and right before the Cincy one.
