First and Gold 26th Edition - Attitude

Posted 03-08-2015 at 11:31 AM by CheramieIII

Hello Sports Fans!

I know it's been a while since I've taken the time to give some of my thoughts about our only purpose in life - The New Orleans Saints. I figured it was time again to either tick a bunch of people off or make a few of you happy. Those who know me know that I really don't care either way, but if you want to argue about it, I'm all for it!

Since 1967 we've had our ups and downs but the last 10 years have been up for sure. The teams attitude has been...

Sanity Zone 2-16-2015 Mardi Gras Special

Posted 02-16-2015 at 09:43 PM by xan

Hey Y'all!

Happy Mardi Gras! Catch dem trows like it's your JOB!!!

It's been a while since enjoying the truly wonderful family feel where we hang during the parades. While it is a remarkable difference between now and the 1960's, it's easy to tell that class is earned not bought.

2015 off season Beer Budget moves

$161.3 million of a 140 to 146 million dollor cap in 2015

Restructure a contract -- a win-win proposition.

Converts a players' salary or roster bonus into a signing bonus, so the cap costs can be spread out over multiple years. The Saints do this every year, Galette and possibly Lofton, head the list.

The State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans provide subsidies and direct payments to the Saints organization that require issuance of debt instruments and interest payments. Rather than invest in infrastructure and education, the goodwill lathered on the Bensons and his FO was ostensibly to provide a competitive environment for a championship caliber sports franchise.

None of this has been worth it. Scandal, incompetence, blatant exploitation of the fan base, filing suit...

Updated 11-27-2014 at 09:55 AM by jeanpierre

Well, the early results of the 2014 NFL Draft for the New Orleans Saints appear headed toward another bust.

While it’s not rocket science, though the way the Saints Draft Decision Makers navigate the draft, they’d have you convinced otherwise, the only teams and fans the Saints outsmarted and
