Saints, why have you forsaken us!

Dear reader, I take no pleasure in being the bearer of bad news, but today, I must tell you the regretful tale of 1200 of our comrades exiled into a harsh diaspora.

It seems that there will be a new press box in the Superdome next season. Being a member of the press (sortof,) I have no problem with accomodating the inkstained wretch, but, apparently, this move will leave 1200 season ticketholders seatless. Mind you the team is working to relocate them albeit "some will have to move to more expensive sections." TP has the official scoop.

Communities of fans, including the fabled Cafe 641, will be destoyed. One would think that New Orleans, of all places, would be aware of the bonds of neighborhoods and the perils of birdshot relocation.

World Class offers an alternative solution.
