TIME FOR FANS TO ANSWER CALL AGAIN: The TIMES-PICAYUNE's Reid said, "I think the fans of New Orleans have answered the call, I feel the fans of New Orleans will answer the call again. ... The fans have shown for the last four years since this lease was amended in 2007 that NBA basketball and NFL football with the Saints can work in this market. The league, which now owns the Hornets, wants to see signs that they can get adequate support for this basketball team, and that comes with these season-ticket sales."
