    Red strikes again........

    Red To The Rescue?


    Red McCombs By Viking Update Staff
    Date: Sep 1, 2005

    In light of the tragedy that has fallen on New Orleans, Red McCombs and San Antonio may be in the perfect position to lay down the red carpet.

    The more news footage most of us see of the devastation perpetrated by Hurricane Katrina, the more our hearts go out to those who live along the Gulf Coast that have seen their lives go 10 feet underwater.

    Among those affected are the New Orleans Saints, who moved their team out of the New Orleans area before the hurricane came on land and all but destroyed their home at the Superdome. With the flooding that followed and the fear that something as simple as electricity won't be available for weeks, former Vikings owner Red McCombs may have his day in the sun after all.

    McCombs, who spent years before and after buying the Vikings trying to get an NFL franchise in San Antonio, could be the point man in salvaging the 2005 season by giving the Saints a place to play their home games. He has a stadium, a built-in infrastructure and, if needed, the fans to get the job done.

    The Vikings and Saints played a preseason game in San Antonio, thanks to a friendship between McCombs and Saints owner Tom Benson. With some speculating that New Orleans may never come back as a city or, at best case scenario, come back as a streamlined city that loses many of its residents, the Saints may be forced to consider moving permanently out of the Big Easy. While Los Angeles may beckon in the long term, San Antonio and McCombs could be prepared to make the short-term move to give the Saints a home.

    McCombs has made no bones that he wanted to bring the NFL to San Antonio. As it turns out, it may be a hurricane that gets that job accomplished.




    Only red could find a silver lining here...what a bastage....

    Better them than our favorite team, a story on cnnsi.com also says that the Saints could also play some games at the L.A. Colesium which I think is an awesome stadium but the Rams should have never been able to leave L.A. and they should be the ones playing there.

    This guy is unreal. I was and always will be sick of him. no doubt he is an opportunist so we should not be shocked that he jumped on this one. The wolf in sheepskin.

    Red Blows.

    But, if it's a better situation for the Saints, then good for them.

    Memo to the Saints: When you see Red, get everyone to jump on Deuce's back and run away as fast as possible!! Well, I guess not as fast as possible, I can't imagine Red running very fast...

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    This would be the perfect blend. Take a team that never wins...add in a cheap-a$$ owner who is a critterphile...and stir.


    VIOLA!!

    Instant crappy team forever.

    Better there, than here........the man is just bad energy.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
