Writing was on the wall. I hope Gayle is ready. NOLA sports will feel this for a bit.

I hope Gayle continues the trend of being a hands off owner. Tom was a great businessman, but he's always let people that know football (or perceived to know lol) run the football side.

In all actuality... Gayle has been running this franchise for a while now.

I'm pretty sure everyone saw this coming for a while, so the sad/happy (depending on your viewpoint) reality is that makes it a lot easier to deal with. Still, we lost a good owner and what seemed like a good man. Thank you for keeping the Saints in NOLA (both when he bought the team and eventually after Katrina) and for building it into a top franchise in the NFL like it is today. RIP Mr B.

 

Now to win SB 53 for him.
