    ...on a new state law regarding agents contacting college athletes.

    Here's the link:

    I like it.

    I'm disappointed in the limit on the fine because YOU KNOW these guys aren't going to do jail time (they're lawyers for God's sake), but it's a step in the right direction...

    Freakin' shysters....

    Agents play into the greed factor, tell the player he's worth more than he really is, then bail after the guy doesn't pan out...

    Instead of ambulance chasers these guys are team bus chasers...

    Unfortunately, if the guy is surrounded by people telling him to go for the $$$, then the above might not even matter...

    Everything I read/hear/see about Saban is good news. If he ever goes pro, I hope the Saints get him.

    In a few more years Saban should be so rich that he could buy the Saints and hire himself as the coach.

    I believe that Saban could turn even the Saints, around. And yes, I know how big a job that would be.

    Probably not if Benson was still the owner.

    I agree 100% no way anyone turns the Saints around as long as Ben$on is in charge.
