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.

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...

Could former Saints practice-squad player be the next Jeremy Lin?

I've been seeing this headline bandied about and I've been thinking. I remember when the Lions signed Joique Bell off New Orleans practice squad. Detroit had just clinched a WildCard and I had begun hanging around the Black&Gold. Emotions were high, everyone in the "D" had been hoping for New York, but not me ... I wanted the Saints ... and yeah, in retrospect, be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

But I remember what you guys said about Joique Bell...

NFL Alumni vote Stafford QB of the Year (?)

Posted 02-26-2012 at 11:44 AM by SloMotion

..... now that I have your attention, hehehe ..... this isn't an attempt to flame the board or dis Drew Brees, I just felt like blogging about the NFL Alumni Awards in general and needed an eye-catching, flashy title to get my creative juices flowing and a shameless attempt to drive traffic to my blog ...

The NFL Alumni Awards, why haven't I really noticed them before? Maybe because they're held during SuperBowl week and there's too much else going on? Maybe because you don't often...
