2011 annual league meetings to be held in New Orleans

The annual league meetings will be held in New Orleans in March 2011, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

It’s the first time in memory the Crescent City will play host to the March meetings.  (Apparently, I got here a year early.)  Usually, the meetings take place at an expensive resort.

With labor unrest likely boiling over at this time next year, the choice of New Orleans is canny. 

If players and owners need any reminder how important football is to this country, they can take a quick stroll around a city in which every other edifice, car, and body part has some sort of Saints memorabilia attached.

Or perhaps the owners just wanted the media distracted by all the food and drink.

  1. Maybe it has to do with extra-curricular activities.
    I don’t really want to know how many married NFL personnel are getting it on, and it’s none of my business, but the only reason this event doesn’t match Tiger’s life is that these guys are not famous and they are ugly.

  2. We will probably find some good pics of them on Bourbon Street getting tanked the night before the meetings

  3. @NOLA:
    I’m damn sure they haven’t. They make their idiotic comments based on he-say-she-say and other people’s lying perception around them. They think New Orleans is all about Bourbon Street. They’re all cowards and jealous because of what their city lacks is what New Orleans possesses; pride, passion, warmth amongst others, and most importantly a Super Bowl Championship.
    The one’s who talk sh!t will get theirs eventually. Karma isn’t anything to play with.

  4. I left out RESPECT, because it’s obvious most of the people on here clearly doesn’t know what that means.

  5. Report:
    Al Davis seen in French Quarter with his pants on the ground.
    Oh, sorry, that was Farve…….my mistake.

  6. Yes,
    You got it, we are all jealous of Toliet City.
    We are jealous of the high crimes and murder rate.
    And especially the corruption…..

  7. wheres the jealous pervy harvin. by the time I read any post here he has already came on and made the vinkings fans look like cry babies.
    New Orleans is pretty dirty, its pretty rough and tough and dangerous. dangerous because of crime and the threat of natural disaster. And yet, at the same time it has sooo many other great qualities about the city theat people love to live there. If there is a clean and danger free city like NewOrleans it would have to be called heaven.

  8. I agree, Minnesota should’ve gotten this meeting. It’s a much more charming city than New Orleans. However the NFL continues it’s banishment of the Viking home. When will the endless torture and red headed stepchild syndrome end?
    Minnesota is in America too, NFL.

    You do realize that all that is centralized in one, small area. Like every other city in America.
    90% of the city is extraordinarily beautiful, safe, with wonderful ante-bellum architecture, culture and people. This is why its one of the most visited, intriguing, and unique cities in America.
    Nobody cares about your run of the mill town with nothing but chain restaurants and theme parks.

  11. 1. I live on the Mississippi Coast an hour outside of New Orleans.
    2. I have lived in Minneapolis for a short 6 months while doing some work there.
    3. The Minneapolis/St. Paul area does NOT come close to having the look, charm, atmosphere, asthetics, lifestyles, magic, or overall feel that New Orleans has.
    4. I’m not knocking on the north, it was pretty up there, with some nice rolling hills, however it’s not exactly an awe inspiring view, it’s a generic metropolis. There was nothing memorable or eye grabbing outside of the landscape.
    5. New Orleans is unique, you will not find a culture like it anywhere else.
    Study up, read your history and get back to me. You’ll be a mazed what you learn about the HISTORIC city.

  12. When he’s in New Orleans for the league meetings next year, perhaps Florio can get a new Jerry Jones voodoo doll to stick pins in. His old JJ voodoo doll has to be worn out.
