The NFL Business Model: Franchise

Posted 04-23-2012 at 06:33 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...

Perspective is everything ...

Posted 04-07-2012 at 08:44 AM by SloMotion

From the start, I have said this is a 'Greg Williams' issue more then anything, he went 'over the top' in what is a common, NFL motivation procedure ... the pep talk.

I have not heard or read of a single Saints fan (or football fan for that matter) supporting Greg Williams or condoning what he did ... as a matter of fact, most of the 'loopy' opinions concerning 'bountygate' can be found outside of Black&Gold and WhoDat Nation. The continued demonization of New Orleans is just...

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.

Reflection comes with lots of free time

I think I've determined why this hurt so much. I've been a Saints fan for a couple decades plus some. I am very used to watching the Saints disappoint. But in 2006, that changed. That didn't change however my expection for the worst to happen. There's always a little part of me, that knows a trap game will in fact, trap us. You know what I'm talking about.

KFC Wants to Help Saints Fans Get Over "Fowl" End to Season

Posted 01-19-2012 at 02:06 PM by Halo (Nose Bleed)

This was sent to BlackandGold.com via email...

With fans hurting a bit after the loss to San Francisco, KFC wants to spice things up for all fans that suffered through a “fowl” end to their season. All they need to do is follow @kfc_colonel and tweet a picture that conveys how things their season went “a fowl” – using the hash tag #KFCWingman. All eligible pictures will receive a $5 KFC gift check which can be used to purchase KFC Hot Wings for watch parties.

Need some ideas?
