re: Can you buy alcohol on LA Purchase card? - GrantTheFan
They aren't supposed to, but if the business' POS is qualified to accept the card for legitimate purchases, then whatever they ring up can be paid for technically with the card. The business is supposed to tell the customer when an item does not qualify - this RARELY happens. A GIANT loophole in t...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
Why do you feel the need to use profanity? And where did I say Tom paid $1 million dollars for the Saints? I'm using that $1 million dollar initial cash investment because that's what Tom himself said he invested, not paid, invested, in an interview with Kenny Wilkerson on WWL some years ago. In ...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
Dang, bro. Why so angry? OK, so my wording regarding the "rights" was incorrect - to an extent. You can sell those rights, to the point at which the Saints revoke those rights. But the point, which was that you offer no asset for downside protection, was absolutely correct. If I buy your righ...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
Valid point. Very valid. That risk is considerably mitigated by the sheer growth in cash flows now afforded NFL teams, mostly from TV money. The profit margin (according to Forbes) is almost twice that of the debt service. That's a pretty nice ratio. Now, admittedly, I have no idea what that ra...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
You're really struggling to grasp a most basic of concepts, Tiger. So let's see, I give you 5k for the "rights" to your tickets. At some point in the future, the Saints, at their discretion, revoke those rights. I'm out 5k. Now, at the same time, let's say I'm an OT Baller and I bought 2 PSL...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
In this example I assumed it was understood Peyton would no longer be playing, so let me be clear that is the scenario. 3 years ago Forbes pegged him at $115 million (true, net worth, not cash, but it's likely that a great deal of that is pretty liquid) and he's earned $60 million in salary and $...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
Sorry I hurt your feelings, but that comment wasn't directed at our disagreement about the LSU tickets, it was directed at you not understanding how it would be possible to put the deal together. That said, there is no asset in your example, it's simply changing the name on the account - which the...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
Ok, we're not going to agree and no sense in OT'ing this discussion - we disagree on the LSU example. It's football, people who want to go to the games will pay that, imo. You don't think so. Fair enough. As to the PSL, if you and I agreed on a price for you to sell me the rights to your ticke...

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
Fair enough, but answer a couple questions, then. What part of my admittedly very rough draft scenario, specifically, do you find so implausible, and, how did Tom manage to originally acquire a 55% stake in the Saints by putting up only $1,000,000 of his own cash?...

[quote]ou can think that, but you're crazy. Btw, the PSL revenue would be shared unless it was going for construction or renovations of a new stadium. They would need to create another exemption for this. [/quote] People said LSU was crazy to quadruple the price of prime seating in Tiger Stadium....

re: Benson needs to sell to the Mannings - GrantTheFan
It would definitely alienate quite a few fans, but at the end of the day, after bitching and moaning, most would pay it, like most LSU fans pay the annual TAF fees. Those that gave up their seats were easily replaced. Look, I'm not endorsing it, but it's certainly possible to do a deal, whether yo...
