And I do think that if the Saints hadn't gotten their ring afterwards - some Saints' fans would still be talking about how the Bears sabotaged the playing surface at Soldier Field in that NFC title game... don't you?
I'm not sure what you're talking about. Who said anything about the field being sabotaged? That field is always crap. Never entered my mind to blame the field. If I've never heard of it, it couldn't have ever been much of a big deal.

I don't visit other teams message boards, and I'm not sure why anyone does. But when I read comments on national articles, if it's about the Saints, there are always pitiful vikings fans complaining that we cheat for every single thing. They think it's funny to bring it up, I guess, but it got old a long time ago. At any rate, I don't include you in my Vikings loathing.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

They watered it down the previous night, which made the middle of the field very soggy and since the Bears were aware of this they knew to fit the right spikes on their cleats - if you ever re-watch that game notice how the Saints' players are struggling with their footing compared to the Bears' players. Now, one could argue that's something that falls under the home field advantage column, but there was no reason for the heavy watering the night before, so it did raise some questions afterwards. If you've never heard of it, then I don't know what to tell you.

I wouldn't really take too much out of the opinions left in the comments sections on news stories on sites like NFL.com or ESPN.com, because those people rarely represent the true knowledgeable fan base that most if not all NFL teams have - much like our own Black & Gold!

Thanks for your support bro, but I have to correct you on one of your points: I'm not a San Jose Sharks supporter, I just watch their games... which has BTW been pretty painful so far this season!

Oh, well I'm glad to hear that ... those pesky Sharks have given my RedWings fits in the playoffs more often then not, .

The fact that I don't remember hearing about it, shows that I don't give a crap about excuses. We lost, it sucked, but it's long over. And while the conversation shifted to the fans, I was not talking about their fans when I said they keep whining. I'm talking about the Vikings organization. It never goes very long without hearing someone, even the freaking punter, from that team to make some stupid remark about us. I don't respect them for that reason.

And no one said that you have to respect or like them.

And with that, we have reached an obvious conclusion. Good day, sir.

It wasn't the field, what really killed us was Reggie doing that stupid flip, LOL. That got the Bears all pumped up again, right when we were about to take over the game. 23-0 after that flip!

Wow, didn't expect that one.

Oh, and SaintsBro, completely agree with you there. Forgot about that disrespectful antic. Of course, through much counciling I have blocked out much of Reggie's Saint career.
