No. I feel our fans are acting just like they have always acted when we have had success. Of course, it has been a few years since the days of the Dome Patrol when the Saints owned the best record in the NFL over a four year stretch. Two of those years ended in crushing losses in the playoffs, though.

How do you feel fans are supposed to act when their team has success?

I even went to the game down there in 2001, it was 10-0 in favor of the saints and the lady in front of me turned around and said "They are selling Redskins shirts for half price now."... After the game and 40 unanswered points, I told her They are trying to Give away saints shirts now.
Well, I have lived here for over 30 years and have always known a large faithful following. Sure, there have always been those people that are the fair weather types. But, it has probably been the fact that I have always ignored them that they simply don't register.

Honestly, I wasn't aware of this board last year. Their is that other board which I tried to register on last year but never was able to get my account activated. I tried it again this year with the same result. That's when I finally found this one. Good group you have here.

Don't you think going on another teams board and talking about how you're going to win the game is a little "Cowgirlish"? That's what we've come to expect from Cowgirl fans...then of course, when we kick their ass they disappear with their tail between their legs only to show up the next year to talk trash. I personally don't visit other teams boards. If I did..it certainly wouldn't be to tell them how great we are. I'm sure they wouldn't care. We haven certain guys, like Giantone, who return and talk no matter the results and sometimes to just talk football in general. Which are you?

Re: Saints predictions anyone?

thats basically what i was trying to get acrossed i lived down there over 35 yrs, a skins fan my whole life, through good times and bad and i guess i just hate it when ppl will only consider a team "their" team when they are winning. and when they are losing they say the hell with them i hope benson does move them.. dont get me wrong i have nothing against you or true saints fans, as my brother is one still living down there in waggaman. im sure they have some die hard fans but im sure there are alot of fans that just jumped on the saints wagon just because they are winning now..

Alot of saints fans are only there for the good and not when the team was losing.. which btw has been an awful lot in their history...
Oh, and don't expect the Saints to be resting anyone unless we get up but 21 points or more late. The Vikings are only one game back at 10-1 with their loss against an AFC team. We cannot afford to lose a game and lose home field advantage throughout. That is way too important. There will be no excuses because there will be nothing left to chance for excuses. Every addition game the Saints play with the Vikes on their tail is that much more important to win.

No. It seemed to evolve into that. I came onto the board to learn more about your team, your fans and your thoughts. I have read quite a bit of enlightening info. Very honest assessments of the Skins' ... current and future.

I suppose I am like Giantone. I am not one to talk out of my arse. If, somehow, the Redskins were able to overcome all and defeat the Saints I would still check back into and give you my support to stick it to the Cowgirls, as well. That said, even after we do win, I still want y'all to stick it to the 'Girls.

Seriously speaking though, I really can't see the scenario where the Redskins would come out on top based upon current factors. That isn't fannish bravado, it is honest assessment from a huge NFL fan. I have read the same honest assessment from the majority of your own boards members.

Nope. It is about as far away as you can get and still be in North Carolina. I knew someone back in college that went to App State in Boone. Boone is in the middle of nowhere. You take a left at Boone and keep going and on the backside of nowhere is Mount Gilead. Probably a cool town though if you like the mountains.

Ok 28. I was just wondering if you were anywhere near Hatteras. I love it down there. I go to the beach and go camping all through that area. Great fishing too.

Re: Saints predictions anyone?

I do like the mountains. I went all the way down the mountains from Waynesboro down to NC and cut across the state to Ocracoke Island one time. Great trip.

I was a little skiddish up around that area for awhile. A sports writer friend of mine was covering a high school football game up near Boone and asked if I would shoot it. Well, on the way back it started snowing hard and we ended up in a head on wreck on a narrow mountain road. Somehow we were both okay. Wow. It has been years since I even thought about that.
