At the NFL’s Spring Meetings in Atlanta, New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson collapsed and was rushed away by ambulance shortly after the city’s Super Bowl presentation. There isn’t any word on what happened to Benson, or what caused him to collapse, but he reportedly is fine.
Thankfully nothing serious happened, but that led to a lot of people making really lame and inappropriate jokes about Benson’s collapse after the city lost the Super Bowl bid to Minneapolis. Most of them center around New Orleans not getting the Super Bowl and range from him being a drama queen to NFL commissioner trying to do this to Benson.
Either way, here are some tweets made in poor taste.

Goodell has really gone too far this time. MT @MikeGarafolo: Tom Benson taken from hotel by ambulance a short while ago. Fell after SB bid
