A Tragic Day in American History

Posted 01-28-2012 at 02:06 PM by saintfan

It happened 26 years ago on this day. It was January 28th, 1986, and I was in the 11th grade. To many, Shuttle launches were no longer a big deal because, if memory serves, there had been more than 20 that preceded this one, but they still held my imagination. In fact I never lost that feeling - right up and until the program was retired.

Soon after the explosion word made its way around school. I and some others had access to insight other kids didn't. I couldn't wait to get...

We Have A Hypocrite In Our Midst

What has happened to the sport I love? Lets just forget the team for a moment, because without the NFL my team doesn't exist. So of course I'm a Saints homer, but that has nothing to do with how I'm feeling right now. I'm upset for my team, but it goes much deeper.

I can't help but feel as though the Nation Football League is punishing a single team, in this case the Saints, for its own transgressions that date back to its creation. Fans of opposing teams and over-the-top-league-mouthpiece...

Goodell, The Dictator.

I am so freaking tired of hearing the national and even local media (Jeff Duncan for instance) telling us not to blame Goodell, that it's all the Saints' fault, that we fans basically know nothing and we're just a bunch of dopes who like to hear ourselves talk.

Sure, the Saints are responsible for whatever action, or inaction, that took place in this scandal. Nobody in their right mind would deny that. But what these superiorly intelligent people fail to realize is that we aren't...

The NFL Business Model: Franchise

Posted 04-23-2012 at 07:33 PM by Saintsfan4ever

This is my first attempt at a blog. So, I'll give it my best shot.

I think I speak for most Saints fans when I say we're literally in a state of shock and dismay at the recent fallout from the penalties bestowed upon our team's coaching staff for league violations stemming from the infamous "Bountygate" in New Orleans. The harsh and seemingly unfair sanctions handed down by league commissioner Roger Goodell has many of us asking the question; "How can he do that? What...

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

Posted 05-01-2012 at 09:10 PM by SaintsBro

Okay. This is my first blog entry -- it’s kind of a long read, but try and stick with me here.

So the latest news is that the guy from the NFL who investigated the “bounties” is quitting. Yeah, I know, I know, he’s resigning kinda mysteriously and without comment – now everyone’s talking conspiracies, about why this guy might have quit, or saying that it looks kinda fishy, "what does this mean," etc.

Well it does look kinda fishy, almost like there may be...
