Have you ever went to an away game?

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Atlanta is a 6 hour drive away and a chicken costume runs about $50 on eBay... I can't tell you how fun it is to troll the Falcons or the Bucs Not to mention, the Saints need our support on ...

Lightbulb Have you ever went to an away game?

Atlanta is a 6 hour drive away and a chicken costume runs about $50 on eBay...

I can't tell you how fun it is to troll the Falcons or the Bucs Not to mention, the Saints need our support on the road more than ever, especially in places like Seattle where they got that whole 12th Man thing going on.

We need to get loud and proud at away games. It's an awesome experience and you get the bragging rights to say that you're a "Superfan" who supported your team in another city.

In spirit of voodoo, I made some "13th Man" designs that you are free to use for making banners, flags, signs, or whatever you want, so please tell your friends and people on Facebook or other message boards to step it up.

Re: Have you ever went to an away game?

not yet

I don't know how fast you drive but 6 hours is pushing it
more like 7 1/2 - 8

I considered going to the Atlanta game - that would be fun
except for the few bad fans

if Detroit is away maybe fly home to see the parents and the game

I see the Saints every year in Atl-- fans are actually pretty passive- some good-natured trash talk, but nothing too bad. Plus, there are always a lot of saints fans there

I've also seen them in St.Louis (fans were asleep and we played like crap) and Miami (fans were getting out of their seats the whole game and were fairly obnoxious)

Re: Have you ever went to an away game?

I was invited to go with a friend a couple years back to see the Panthers play in Atlanta (free ticket and hotel, that's my excuse) The fans were absolutely horrible. The parents were pushing their kids to yell and cuss at my friend and they were so many people in passing calling him an a-hole and they kept saying F-you. I was only wearing a black shirt but had my Saints socks on one person saw them and almost went ballistic on us. I would probably never go back to the Georgia Dome to ever watch a game, especially if it's the Falcons and whoever. Don't recommend it unless it doesn't cost you anything. Very little class.

I usually go to at least 1 away game each season, but none are closer than home games for me this year St. Louis is nice, but that stadium is a DUMP. Titans' stadium is ok...fans are very good people. I refuse to spend money going to that hell hole in Atlanta.

Re: Have you ever went to an away game?

I've seen the Saints in San Diego, Los Angeles (both Rams and Raiders) Oakland, San Francisco, Seattle (last MNF ugh) Denver, Green Bay and Chicago. I really want to see them in Jerry World but I won't be able to make it this year.

Re: Have you ever went to an away game?

I forgot - I also saw the Saints in Pittsburgh. Fans were awesome. I truly believe I was the only Saints fan among the 60,000.

It was about...um...35 years ago. I think it was the year Manning won NFC offensive player of the year. Lost on a Rocky Bleier touchdown catch, but we battled

I hate going to a game and losing because it makes the payment hurt so much worse. Home game= Bigger chance of winning
