The Washington Post reported this week that the NFL will consider moving the New Orleans Saints to Los Angeles on a permanent basis should New Orleans be unable to adequately recover from Hurricane Katrina. The Saints are splitting their home games this season between the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, and LSU’s Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, but the NFL has no intention of repeating this scenario next season. The Los Angeles market has been without an NFL team since Al Davis’s last hissy fit in 1994.
If you ask me, the team would have to change its name should it move to LA. “Los Angeles Saints” make about as much sense as “Utah Jazz.”
