NFL May Move Saints to Los Angeles
WASHINGTON - The Washington Post reports the NFL will consider relocating the Saints to Los Angeles if New Orleans is unable to recover from Hurricane Katrina.
The newspaper cites three sources familiar with the league's deliberation on the matter.
The Saints have been based in San Antonio since they were forced out of the Crescent City by the damaging August hurricane.
But the sources say the league has no interest in the Texas city as a permanent home for the club.
Los Angeles is the second-largest television market in the country and has been without an NFL team since the Raiders moved back to Oakland after the 1994 season.
I feel bad for New Orleans, but we need football back in Los Angeles.
There is no freakin' way the Superdome will be ready to open next season, if ever. The Saints have been on the short list to relocate to L.A. for years.
If they do move, I hope that the owner leaves the Saints name, logo and records in New Orleans for when they are able to sustain a new expansion team, like what happened when the Browns left Cleveland and became the Baltimore Ravens.
Delta- bad news, eh?
