Interesting article re: Saints and Superdome Lease

Benson was asked if a totaling of the Superdome would mean he could move his team without paying the $81 million.

"You're way ahead of me," he said Monday after NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced that the Saints would be playing four games at Tiger Stadium. "I don't know anything about that or what we're going to do about all of that. I don't want to leave Louisiana, OK. Otherwise, we wouldn't be playing four games here."
Tagliabue at times sounded as passionate as a New Orleans or southeast Louisiana native when he announced the Saints would be playing in Tiger Stadium.

"That was a decision that I made," he said Monday. "We wanted to make it 1,000 percent clear that the New Orleans Saints are committed to Louisiana, to New Orleans and their fans."
