We’re not sure if you saw it earlier, but this morning we posted a rather interesting and candid conversation with Toronto city councillor Doug Ford regarding the possibility of an NFL team in Toronto. Since then it’s become kind of a big deal, especially among the fine people of New Orleans and Jacksonville.

With his phone ringing all day and his e-mail inbox clogged (sorry, Doug), Ford spoke to the New Orleans Time-picayune and apologized for commenting on a rumour.

“It was an off-the-cuff remark I should not have made,” Ford said. “It was just a rumor and I should be careful with rumors. And I would like to apologize to all of the folks in New Orleans and Louisiana who have gone through so many struggles.¬†We all think New Orleans is a great city and taking away the Saints is the last thing we want to do.”

So, I guess that’s the end of that then…
