saints (n.) - NFL franchise presently based in New Orleans; boondoggle (n.) - an unnecessary or wasteful project or activity; saintsdoggle (n.) - the Saints' potential relocation situation in New Orleans, and the resulting boondoggle by Louisiana to keep the team from leaving

Several sources ponder Saints-to-L.A. scenario

Today I have found a handful of columnists who, like myself, believe that the Saints are headed to L.A. due to (a) the circumstances caused by Katrina, combined with (b) the previous financial problems with the Saints, and (c) the NFL's intended goal of getting a team to the nation's second-largest media market:

- The most detailed of the recent articles is by Billy Witz of the L.A. Daily News. His column, entitled "Saints future is uncertain," focuses on the short and long term realities faced by the team.

- The San Diego Union-Tribune's Jerry Magee opines in his column, "Katrina might send Saints to LA," that the Saints cannot be maintained in the near future by New Orleans or Louisiana.

- New York Newsday columnist Bob Glauber's "Saints future may be elsewhere" states that "the unfortunate reality is that this team may very well have played its last game in New Orleans" and goes on to note two likely final destinations - San Antonio and L.A.

- The Baltimore Sun's Ken Murray writes in "With holes in stadium roof, Saints' future up in air" that "the door to leave is wide-open now. And no one may be able to close it." The likely end result is a move to Los Angeles for a fresh start.

- Another similar piece is by the Orlando Sentinel's Chris Harry, entitled "Saints may never return home."

- An article on by columnist John Czarnecki, "Saints could be headed to Los Angeles", encapsulates some of the thinking set forth on this site, especially in the previous two posts (here and here) to this site.

- This article, "Saints stadium problems should be ignored," by Ron Borges of, contends that the Superdome should not be repaired anytime soon and that Tom Benson ought to give L.A. a try.

- Another MSNBC article, Evan Weiner's "New Orleans market no longer viable," says that neither the city nor the state will be in any shape to host the Saints or Hornets.

Nice, quote 5 national or California news sources saying the Saints are done in LA. But no inclusion of a local writer? Who may know the situation better than you?

According to the occasion, wedding could be separated into two styles, formal or traditional wedding and informal or casual wedding. Wedding Dresses should really be fitted for that wedding occasion no matter what sort of occasion you like.
