Duncan cited a source saying that she has become more “all over the map”.  The source also said that she:

…enjoys the glitz and glamour of being an owner, but she doesn’t really roll up her sleeves and get into the business side of it.

The report also states that LeBlanc has been absent from meetings for two major events for the city of New Orleans, which are the New Orleans Super Bowl Host Committee and Tom Benson purchasing the New Orleans Hornets from the NBA.

Not attending the functions for either of these monumental events is either by choice or part of the leave she is on that supposedly Benson himself instigated.

Benson, who is 85, can’t carry the franchise forever and will need someone level-headed and most importantly committed to the Saints.

Let’s not forget it was Benson who, despite outside pressure and a boatload of money, decided to keep the wounded franchise in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and by the same token do the same for the New Orleans Hornets.
