    Football 101:Salary Cap, Free Agency and Franchise Tags

    I like that minimum Salary idea .... any way to give some of that extra back to the fans?

    Letter to Coach Payton

    The letter provides nice thoughts but lacks substance. Is this really what you would let the couch know if you had the opportunity?
    How about letting him know that the he needs a better conditioning couch and program? Too many injuries.
    How about a better defense?
    How about not giving away draft picks for a player like Schocky?
    How about asking: Jim Mora and Jim Hasslett both lead the team to playoffs in their first or second seasons, but then never seemed to get any better- Sean how will you not repeat this pattern?
    I have been a fan since the first game and I want a Super Bowl for us, what needs to happen to get that Coaching, front office, players?

    Why does this site mean more than just football?

    Sorry I can not give you grief on this one. I agree with everything you have said. I to still get mushy when Joe is the topic. Call me girlie boy if you want and I will dress the part. It was Joe that got me so involved in this site as he did with so many others here.

    Mark thank you for this site!

    Why does this site mean more than just football?

    Sapper,

    Thanks for the kind words. It was hard at first when JoeSam passed away. He was like a brother and a partner in everything with this site- he was a good friend.

    It's been hard keeping up with the site and making it go, but so many other people have stepped up to help moderate, give recommendations, and just write to say hi. It helps when you have a community of people to back you up when it can be a lot of work keeping a site like this going.

    This site is for the members. We're not ban happy or anything- if something goes wrong everyone can look at themselves and ask why. While some are content contributors, others are nay-sayers, some just come to read what is going on. What I remind everyone is we're all Saints fans, or the Saints have brought us here somehow. When everyone gets their feathers ruffled, that's a great mantra that this site lives by.

    So with all the diverse people, we get along and that makes this site fun.

    I hope everyone enjoys the site, and don't hesitate to PM or email me at anytime if you want to help or join in somehow.

    Halo (Mark)

    Donation Feature and other site suggestions.

    Saintswrath,
    We always encourage members to join in and help. This is a free forum and website and we do not request our member donate because it can create a monarchy.
    Contributing here means you contribute news and information that adds to the community. We have google banner ads at the top and on a sidebar that are no more intrusive as any other website, Saints or not.
    This is a laid back place, people are involved however they want. Some use chat, some post.
    Let me remind you BlackandGold.com is blackandgold.net which was around since before I can remember. The first website I knew about was this site and Sainternet, and everything else seem to come from those places.
    I think if you want to help and contribute, start posting news, joining in-- you can ask your friends to join. Some of your "complaints" are preferences the members here want, but we try to do the best we can to run a fun and clean site.
    I hope you join in and contribute and look forward to seeing you in action.

    Donation Feature and other site suggestions.

    Ok i've figured out how to make the Forum post oldest first..

    but it would be nice if the forum had Thread Display Mode: Oldest first.
    Set as Default..
    If other members want to do it, just go to your "User CP" Click "Edit options"> Go to Thread Display Mode area, and change the option to oldest first..

    I'll make sure Halo gets this. You can private message Halo anytime with any suggestions and he'll get back to you promptly. I think he does the same sort of stuff you do and is the owner of the site.

    I can not give up. It's just not in me.

    Hey I cannot not give up either. I really think I bleed black and gold! I get so angry at them but I say ok but next week they just have to do better. And it goes the same for next week. Go figure haha. I happen to have a Saints mobile and to be not a true Saints fan I would of never did what i did to my new car. As soon as I download those pics you will see how truthful I am. If you cannot wait go to myspace and punch in Carlene Duet and you will see it for yourself but people don't ever give up on something just because they're down.

    The Saints not politics is our common ground!

    good call, ive been to most of the big name saint sites and this is the best by far. though we disagree no one ever calls anyone out or acts like a total dbag. thats all that happens on the other sites, its quite childish.

    expecting others to agree with you is a waste of time anyway....im good with everyones opinion, its good for thinking outside the box....that is as long as no one likes that peanut butter that already comes with the jelly in the jar......gross!

    I agree with the politics and religion. I had posted a thread congratulating Obama, as our president. Not whether or not I voted for him, just because Im an American and we need to support him. Got blasted as usual, got "negative" comments like, "I guess I'll have to watch Saints games in Canada" etc. Yep, mods do NOTHING about those. My posts, never a problem getting "reviewed". Warm and fuzzy from me or threats of banning commences. Never other negative posters or ones who post imho crude acronyms etc.

    Great post. I am not a big poster on here but have been a member for several years now. This is my home for "SAINTS" news, opinion, and debate. Most of the folks on here don't even know me but I feel at home here. B&G continues to grow and get better. You said it right..we are a Saints family regardless of our other personal ties and beliefs. Lets keep it that way.
