    Jimmy Graham's Dunk? Momentum Shifter? (Odd Theory)

    I think Jimmy Graham still thinks of himself as a basketball player. He uses skills he developed playing BBALL to box out defenders and catch the football. Great hands, quick feet and a great vertical leap are attributes of many basketball players. I wish now he'd develop some skills you can't learn playing BBall like run blocking, using a stiff arm or simply steamrolling defensive backs most of whom he outweighs by at least 60lbs. I'm personally glad they outlawed his goalpost dunk TD celebration. Maybe now he'll forget about BBall and try to be a complete football player. If he ever developed a nasty attitude like you saw TEs like Mike Ditka, Mark Bavaro or even Jeremy Shockey playing with he could potentially be one of the best all around players ever to play in the NFL and maybe even threaten some of Jerry Rices all time receiving records. He could also pick up a league MVP title along the way.

    I agree with joker-saint, celebrations have gotten too gaudy ... I like the Jimmy Graham dunk and the celebration where they just spin the ball like a top, you know, keep-it-simple, but all the dancing/symbolic crap is too much, especially when they really didn't accomplish anything out of the ordinary.

    I liked it better when nobody celebrated. It was like it was just business for them then. Now there is a little bit of a cocky side to them. They definitely need to get their attitudes in check.

    Some TIN FOIL HAT Thoughts On The Whole Crazy Bounty/WiretappingThing

    rugby i must respectfully disagree with you. green bay has cheese. come on who doesnt like cheese? even lactose intolerant people try to sneak cheese into their diets.

    That's some interesting thinking. It's not really that far fetched if you think about it. However, as Kristomac said the economy isn't dictated by who is playing in the Superbowl. We are a small town market, but so is Green Bay and they have less to offer than we do.

    Some TIN FOIL HAT Thoughts On The Whole Crazy Bounty/WiretappingThing

    Saintswrath, the problem I have with your comments is your belief that a Superbowl in the home teams town wont make as much money (hotels , parking etc.) The problem with that assertion is that only a VERY small percentage of Superbowl attendees are actually from the home town. This is not the NCAA Championship. Most Superbowl ticketholders got to the Superbowl regardless of the teams playing, and as a guest house owner in The French Quarter for the past two Superbowls in New Orleans, I can tell you that hotels and motels and guest houses are rented out LOOOONG before the teams are decided. Yeah, New Orleans residents who are ticketholders to the Superbowl wont be staying in the local hotels, but there are always plenty of people willing to rent those rooms regardless of which teams are playing.

    New Orleans makes less money when LSU plays in the Sugar Bowl, or the Championship game, but the Superbowl is a different creature.

    Some TIN FOIL HAT Thoughts On The Whole Crazy Bounty/WiretappingThing

    My Tin-foil hat Thoughts are..
    1.Superbowl in New Orleans
    2.League doesn't make enough money especially in Small market's to risk the home team playing in it.
    (For one, Hotel/Motel's will not benefit, concessions wont benefit, parking wont benefit, thus the stadium will not make out well if Hometown fan's get the luxury to sit home instead of going to events, concerts etc that are thrown before gameday.)
    It's all about money in the end.
    The League seem's fearful the Saints made it an inkling close to the Big dance last year something reminiscent to the 2008-2009 Season.
    That fear built up and instead of cracking down on the Saints during a season in which the Superbowl was to be played in Indy, they waited for the right opportunity to make sure they knock us down at the knee's to do whatever they can in their power to keep us from playing in this Season's Superbowl which is in New Orleans "Ironically"..

    They knew about all of what was going on for 3 YEARS!!!
    It's seems to coincidental they decided, hmm if we punish them now (2011) they might send them on a rallying cry to the Superbowl in 2012-13 so lets hold off til the Superbowl in New Orleans.
