S.A. mayor: Benson being mistreated; Saints fans suffer ticket backup

While there are other stories making their way across the net today, one has stood out like a sore thumb.

San Antonio's mayor, Phil Hardberger, told a local radio station that "I certainly think Tom (Benson) is being mistreated," and that Benson received "rude treatment" in Baton Rouge at Sunday's Saints-Dolphins game.

Now that's like the pot calling the kettle black.

Funny how Hardberger's moral compass is so skewed. What does he label his own city's treatment of New Orleans regarding the Saints?

I've got new for Phil. The Saints ain't coming to San Antonio permanently. Enough has come out over the last week or so from the NFL powers-that-be to eliminate that possibility. The league doesn't want a team there, no matter how badly he, Tommy Boy, and Red McCombs do.

In fact, NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue disapproves of the Hardberger-Benson discussions that apparently have taken place. Tagliabue was quoted as saying, "Under our league policies, owners are not supposed to be talking about re-locating their team during a season. We've got a specific set of guidelines on that. It's a policy that was negotiated with the U.S. conference of mayors, and my assumption is that every owner is complying with the policy."

In any event, it's either New Orleans or Los Angeles, Phil. Deal with it.

Speaking of mistreatment, Saints season ticket holders had to wait outside Tiger Stadium for most of Sunday's Dolphins-Saints game because of poor planning.

One fan was quoted in the Baton Rouge Advocate as saying, "If Tom Benson was serious about what he said in the newspaper, this never would have happened...This seems intentional or a reckless disregard for season-ticket holders."

Some might say that Benson did Saints fans a favor by not allowing them into the stadium. The Saints looked terrible. But I digress.


Check out this link to a breakdown of this weekend's events by Jim Mashek of the Mississippi Sun-Herald, entitled "Benson throws gas on fire." Good stuff.
