re: Would New Orleans support an MLB team? - fightin tigers
I'll admit I was wrong. The Saints have high attendance numbers. I probably should have expounded further about my "attendance doesn't lie" qualifier, but I made a quick quip and will admit I am wrong....

re: Would New Orleans support an MLB team? - fightin tigers
You're right. There weren't bailouts by corporations, blackouts, or threats to move in the early 2000's. All of this because Benson had the support needed from the fanbase. ...

[quote]Yea, instead you just lie about a fanbase you're not a part of. I'd rather the bandwagon fan honestly. [/quote] I support them with tax dollars. I am part of their support base. I don't think I lied, you just interpret the facts different. I say blackouts and being bailed out by last m...

re: Would New Orleans support an MLB team? - fightin tigers
I thought a sellout was a reflection of attendance. Not everyone has a stadium the size of the Superdome either to get the attendance numbers. It isn't a crystal clear picture for either of us to use one number to prove this point....

re: Would New Orleans support an MLB team? - fightin tigers
