A statement from Saints/VooDoo Owner Tom Benson regarding the status of the New Orleans VooDoo franchise for the 2006 Arena Football League season:

"The decision has been made to suspend play of the New Orleans VooDoo in New Orleans for the 2006 season. Factors beyond our control are forcing us to make this decision. We will not have a facility available to us to play our games, we will not be able to house players and staff and we will not be able to utilize our practice facility as it is being used by the government for Hurricane Katrina operations."

Well, they are suspending play in New Orleans. That's not to say that they won't seek a temporary relocation. I think this is a means of seeing what, if any markets, are willing to host the team for a season. This is a pretty good team and I'd have to think more of an effort would be made to keep it together and play somewhere else for a season rather than dismantle it and have to start over in 2007.

In another article it reads that they will suspend play for 2006 and a dispersal draft will be held. However the good news is that New Orleans will be one of the top candidates to host an arena bowl in the near future.

so theyre gone? That sucks, why cant they just move the team to another city
