While New Orleans Saints Bountygate Brews, Where Goes Brees?
Written by 

Brees-panthersWith New Orleans Saints Bountygate still raging on, what’s going on in the former really BIG controversy Drew Brees contract talks.

There have been all types of discussion as to whether Drew Brees would use the scandal to his advantage.  After all, it would be very difficult for New Orleans Saints fans, still blown away by these most recent NFL events to also deal with the prospects of losing the heart of the team over the past six years, Drew Brees.

 Quoting a team source, the Times Picayune regarding Mickey Loomis, said:  

"Mickey has not missed a beat on his GM duties and actually spent the majority of Friday strictly on the Brees deal," the source said. "The bounty stuff was not out of nowhere. We knew about this and have cooperated and been involved in helping the league for years. We understand the severity and ramifications, but (Owner Tom Benson) and Mickey are on the same page and moving forward."

Well, if they knew about this raging controversy for a while, certainly so did Brees and his agent.  Plus, it has been Drew Brees who has stated time and time again that he wants to be with the New Orleans Saints.

Another Times Picayune article indicates that there might not be any reason to worry in terms of Brees walking out the door or forcing a trade.

“Ultimately, the Saints’ contract offers to Brees will do the talking for them.

Loomis may have balked at the idea of making Brees the first $20 million-per-year player in NFL history. But there has been no indication that he and the Saints are “low-balling” Brees in negotiations.”

Let’s hope so.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
