wellsThe New Orleans Saints have a wonderful 50-year relationship with long-suffering fans that have supported the team through mostly losing seasons. Unfortunately, the team is putting that relationship in jeopardy with their asinine position on the National Anthem controversy.

For some unknown reason, the Saints have decided to support the right of disgruntled players to kneel or sit either before or during the playing of the National Anthem. In week 3, it was ten players who sat and since that time multiple players have been kneeling before the National Anthem is played and then standing for the Star-Spangled Banner.

charbonnetHas the political issue of the moment in the New Orleans Mayor’s race moved from the attacks against Desiree Charbonnet to those now against LaToya Cantrell?

Up until last week, before the New Orleans credit card reimbursement became a story, Charbonnet was the clear underdog, down by nine points from the primary election. However, since the story went public, much, if not most of the conversation has centered upon Cantrell and not Charbonnet, and much of it is negative.

oswaldAfter almost 54 years, the controversy about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy still rages today. 

The question at the center of the debate is the roll of Lee Harvey Oswald. Was he the diabolical perpetrator of the crime or an unwitting patsy set up to take the blame for the murder of the century by powerful forces either within the U.S. government, the Mafia or foreign entities?

We all know the lament, and some of us have been writing about it for almost four years. Will Drew Brees, one of the NFL’s all-time great quarterbacks, go down in history as another Archie Manning? Great player on an average team. Sure, Brees won a Super Bowl which puts him in kind of a purgatory of greatness. Certainly higher than Archie, who never enjoyed a winning season in New Orleans, but not quite the Beulah Land of Peyton or even Eli, if you’re counting championships.
