San Antonio - YOU SUCK!
YOUR Mayor wants to steal the Saints from New Orleans, taking advantage of a natural disaster.

If the next hurricane hits Miami will you San Antoinians swoop down and covet the Dolphins?

If the next terrorist attack hits Denver will your Mayor seek out the Nuggets?

Time to get rid of your Mayor people.

New Orleans is known as the City that Care Forgot

San Antonio's Name will Soon Be

THE CITY THAT FUCKED ITS NEIGHBORS!

Get your collectives asses in gear and make this right or San Antonio will die a very slow and very painful PR death. I'm more than happy to lead the charge. Just take a listen to NOLA radio and hear your city trashed as I type.

9. Why the chuckle?
If a natural disaster destroys Fenway and some yahoo in Oklahoma City decides he wants the Red Sox - oh yeah I now see the humor. Fuck the other guy. Love that Yankee humor....

14. It has nothing to do
with a natural disaster ruining a town or that "fuck the other guy" theory.

I can just picture someone reading this thread aloud and then reallu shouting at the point when you say SA's new home should be the town that fucked over its neighbors.

I just found it funny. sorry.

26. "that fucked over its neighbors"
is what the OP said.
We took in quite a bit of evacuees in the town that I work in. Don't know the exact number but I feel it is quite impressive considering I live in CT and thats's many, many miles from NOLA and the Gulf Coast.

32. No that's what the OP said
Edited on Mon Oct-17-05 09:41 PM by bigwillq
Please re-read the OP's post.

The reason I said I thought this post was funny was because I was picturing someone reading the OP message aloud and getting really angry, which is reasonable.

Kind of like Peter Finch's "I'm mad as hell...speech in Network.
I don't think it's funny that NOLA and the Gulf were ruined by a hurricane or that San Antonio is trying to steal the Saints away.

But in my crazy mind, I got a laugh because I was thinking about someone reading this a loud...get it...It's hard to explain.


on edit: Actually the OP said "THE CITY THAT FUCKED ITS NEIGHBORS!"

34. Thanks for the clarification.
If more folks took the time (like you did) to make clear what they meant there would be a lot less hurt feelings.

10. No its not Texas bashing
If a Mayor in California wanted to steal my Saints because their Stadium was destroyed by a natural disaster then I would be California bashing.

Texas, the home of bush and delay, who the fuck would have any desire to bash that state and what it has wrought on our Country?

19. You're bitching about a football team...
Take it to the sports forum if you don't like the responses you're getting.

Why don't you take your hateful rhetoric to the mayors of either NO or SA? Turn your anger into action.

13. This is Texas bashing.
I just survived Rita, my neighbor down the road did not. He was found in his front yard with his neck broke. So I guess he deserved to die because of the state he lived in? Tell me, do you blame the Jews for Hitler as well?

7. Maybe they'll try and go after the AAA Zephyrs, too...
because that would be an upgrade from their present status in the AA Texas League! Ha! Eighth-largest city in America and all they have is an AA ballclub! Boo-ya!!

22. The Mayor did it, ... don't trash San Antonio !
San Antonio did not do anything wrong... ONE individual did ! (their mayor). I agree that the citizens of S.A. should raise hell with their mayor, but to trash a town is unfair..
According to my cousin, San Antonio was THE most responsive city in the country with regard to taking in evacuees and giving the most money, food, clothing, and supplies.
I sympathize with your feelings, but lashing out at a city is really prejudiced thinking. (It's the same as someone saying they wish the town YOU live in would die a slow and painful death because there was an evil man living there !!)

25. Why do people disable their profiles
so you don't know where they are from? Can ya give me a clue? So if the Saints move to San Antonio the citizens will rise up in rightous indignation and say no, let us do the right thing and give the team back to New Orleans .. I'll sit back and watch the citizens of San Antonio rise up to reject what their Mayor has said he wants.

San Antonio - The City that fucked its Neighbors!

"To trash a city is unfair." WOW. Have ya watched the news lately about New Orleans? I'm so glad ya'll with disabled profiles are so up on the news.

28. Thank you for the post BUT
relevance to stealing a money maker from another city? Please share with me the logic of taking advantage of another city's pain. I'd be more than happy to spread your answer throughout the region. San Antonio's charitable works on behalf of New Orleans was the right thing to do, not a carte blanche for theft.

UTUSN - ANSWER MY INQUIRY so i can commence to make things right with our worlds. Unless of course, you don't have an answer.

Until someone can convince me otherwise -

SAN ANTONIO - THE TOWN THAT FUCKS ITS NEIGHBORS!

Try the people running the city. Do you need this drawn on a chalkboard to understand it?

Should we nuke Crawford because of one idiot that lives there?

Your logic makes about as much sense as RWer's :eyes:

40. I'm pointing out that you seem to have a double standard here.
You seem to have great animosity for the citizens of Texas because of Bush. I'm trying to make you see that, that's like blaming the Jews for Hitler. I never voted for him yet you repeatedly call me derogatory names.

36. Let them have the Hornets.
Everytime George Shinn gets a team in a ciity a natural disaster happens. Charlotte had Hugo in 89, which was the mascots name by the way. Moved to NOLA and whamo.

37. Be fair
The Saints owner is the one trying to move. Yeah, you could make the argument that San Antonio deserves some blame for being the interested party, but the real scumbag is the owner.

39. Let them leave: Benson and his team sucks
Let them be San Antonio's albatross instead of ours. Remember that this is a team that has only won one playoff game in it's entire franchise history!! I'm tired of Tom Benson trying to con more money out of the state to pay for those losers.

You know maybe if the Saints would actually win games then the state would have gotten them a new stadium. But seriously why invest the money when the team preforms so badly?! They struggle just to sell enough seats to lift a TV blackout. I recall a WWL report that the team's economic impact doesn't justify the demands of Benson.

The Superdome is a multi-purpose building and can book other events. Maybe we can get another NFL team that doesn't have a greedy dick as an owner and that can actually win.

42. It's Benson you should be cursing
Edited on Mon Oct-17-05 10:24 PM by PDittie
He's been trying to break the Superdome lease and/or move/sell the team for some time now. He has no interest in fielding a winning team and no interest in owning a team if he can't make a brazillion dollars.

Lay off the Texas bashing, please, BOSSHOG. We have to put up w/enough of that from everybody else for all kinds of reasons as it is, and it ain't the city of San Antonio's fault that Benson is a shitheel.
