    SAN ANTONIO - The displaced Saints will be returning to New Orleans for the 2006 season, NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue and team owner Tom Benson said Friday.
    Tagliabue addressed players, coaches and staff members at their temporary training facility in downtown San Antonio where the team moved its base of operations to in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
    Tagliabue said the team would train and play its eight regular-season home games in Louisiana, at the Superdome and Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. The Superdome is undergoing repairs and should be football-ready by mid-September.

    Thats great news!! NO needs the Saints! SA don't!! Nor does Texas need three NFL teams. Neither does FLA, so the Jags need to go to LA and all will be well with the NFL!!:)
