Default The Major Difference between the NBA and NFL

The NFL, while stupidly wrong in moving the Saints home opener to New York, at least is doing everything possible to ensure that the New Orleans Saints remain in NO, that they play at least half of their home slate in LA, and finnaly that their greedy ass owner doesn't screw the fans by using this as an excuse to get out of town. Unfortunantly it looks as if the NBA is bending over backwards to help George Shin instead of making sure that the Hornets fans get to see their team.

Hornets to Play in Oklahoma City


NEW YORK, Sept. 21 -- NBA Commissioner David Stern announced today that Oklahoma City will be home to the New Orleans Hornets for the 2005-06 season, playing host to 35 regular season games. The team will also play six regular season games in Louisiana.
“The devastation of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region has made it necessary for the Hornets to move to a temporary location for the upcoming season,” Stern said. “Fortunately, the Hornets have received a gracious invitation from Mayor Mick Cornett and the business leaders and citizens of Oklahoma City to play their home games in the Ford Center, a first-class facility that we hope to fill with new Hornets fans this season.”

The team will also play six home games at the Pete Maravich Center on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.

“It was important to the Hornets and the NBA that we maintain a presence in Louisiana in anticipation of a return to New Orleans next season,” Stern said. "Few American cities have experienced the level of tragedy as Oklahoma City,” Mayor Cornett said. “I think for that reason our community has a heightened sensitivity for those impacted by Hurricane Katrina. We accept that we are the best solution to solve one of the many problems and pledge our best efforts to support the Hornets."

“Like so many businesses and families uprooted by Hurricane Katrina, the Hornets were forced to leave New Orleans while the city recovers from this tragedy,” Hornets owner George Shinn said. “Fortunately, Oklahoma City is an ideal home for this season and we greatly appreciate the good will shown by Mayor Cornett and the local business community. We will play a majority of our games in Oklahoma City this season with great pride and gratitude, but remain devoted to our home and have set our sights on returning to a rebuilt and vibrant New Orleans for the 2006-07 season.”

Ford Center, built in 2002, is Oklahoma City’s state-of-the-art sports and entertainment showcase. The center is home to the Central Hockey League’s (CHL) Oklahoma City Blazers and the Arena Football League’s (AF2) Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz, and is designed to host major concerts, sporting events, family shows, ice shows and numerous other world-class entertainment experiences.

The 586,000 square-foot facility seats 19,6745 on four seating levels and features 3,380 club seats, seven party suites and 49 private suites. Ford Center is owned by the City of Oklahoma City, a city that has already welcomed thousands of evacuees from the Gulf region. The facility is the premier project of Oklahoma City’s visionary capital improvement program (MAPS) to finance new and upgraded sports, entertainment, cultural and convention facilities with a one-cent sales tax.

Ford Center is an SMG-managed facility. Headquartered in Philadelphia, SMG is the world’s leading private facility management company. With 168 Facilities, SMG controls over 1.4 million entertainment seats worldwide, and over nine million square feet of exhibit space.
This is just wrong. Oklahoma! Talk about alienating a fan base. The hornets had problems with getting the fans to come to the games before all this. At least half of the games should be played in Louisiana. Louisiana is loosing out on a lot of revenue by having 95% of the games out of state. 6 fucking games, the NBA and George Shinn should be ashamed of the selves, but of course they won't be.

i remember all the talk here (around the charlotte area) when Shinn was trying to get out , all we heard was how we werent supporting our team, and its all our faults the team and Shinn made no money, when in reality Shinn was to busy making all the team decisions, screwing up the team and getting himself into personal troubles.

I also remember being just a bit bitter at the new orleans fans when the team moved, as i recall, i said just wait , Shinn will suck you guys dry too. i had no idea it would be that soon though.

What was the NFL to do about that game on such short notice?

On topic, I agree with you 100% on your opinion of the Hornets.

Play it in Reliant Stadium in houston, or at least some place closer to Louisiana. It was a NO home game and it should have been played as close to Louisiana as possible.

Perhaps they should have put in Ladd-Peebele Stadium (the only stadium to my knowledge named after a professional wrestler) in Mobile. They didn't get near the damage (while they did get a bit) and Mobile has been loyal Saints fans since they started.
