Listen to the attached file from Mike & Mike

4/16
8:00 MINUTES INTO THE PODCAST
ESPN - ESPNRadio.com - PodCenter


MIKE GREENBURG critizes NFL for taking home game out of new orleans.

Goes on to say while other sports are moving games to New Orleans (nba allstar game, arena bowl, etc), NFL moves home game out of state.

I agree and I wanna know why!

where is the New Orleans Media on this one!?????????????????????????

This is totally old news. The time for outrage was a while ago. This is a done deal. We agreed to it and weren't forced.

What about the part where the NFL intentionaly schedules San diego at Buffalo the week before as San Diego requested?

Why could the saints have one of the visitor games away instead of a home game.

It was only news as of 2 days ago that it was a home game.

I do know one thing: Mayor Nagin is more likely to be in England or Dallas to watch the game than New Orleans

Misread your post. Edited for clarity. Nonetheless at least keep your outrage inline with the facts. This is not news as of 2 days ago. :shrug:

Good for you, but if your going to make an argument, you owe it to everyone to at least back it up with facts and not misleading and meaningless drivel.

Everyone is getting reimbursed, including the state.

International exposure can only help the saints. Our major problem is lack of corporate backing. This might snag us a few more sponsors.

why do people always look to find a way they are being screwed? Lifes a whole lot more fun when you arent' always looking for problems and how you're being done wrong.
look for the positives.. it does help, life is really what you make out of it. start looking at the positive, and you start realizing more positives are happening.
