While Benson may not be on my "favorite persons list" i find it hard to knock him at the moment. love him or hate him, he's stepped up to the plate when no one else has.
bottom line is, i don't care how rich he is, i'm just thankful, as a huge Saints and Hornets fan that he's the owner of both teams.. and we're not waving goodbye to our beloved teams.

My sentiments exactly.
I'd plan to get into the Hornets more this season, and now I want to even more with local ownership.
However, my study focus is on the Saints. Ironically, this year I was going to venture into studying the coaching staff! hahahaha
