God nooooooooooooo. Colors and symbols, back then were picked for city. Marketing tshirts and stuff was not the issue. players were making about 45,000 for the season back then on average, if that. Times were different as was the mind set. So was the game come to think about it.

Guys, I love oil. If it wasn't for oil, I couldn't drive my Jepp and fourwheeler.

No problem, some just read what they want to into every post. I knew what you meant.

It was partly because of the riches of the oil industry that the Saints are even in existance! Way off base on this one, guy.
This will be the last time I say this.

I AM ASHAMED THAT I DID NOT KNOW WHY OUR COLORS WERE BLACK AND GOLD.

NOT THAT I AM ASHAMED BECAUSE IT IS IN REFERENCE TO OIL.

No big deal Missle. I just don't want people thinking I'm a tree-hugger hippie type.

I know what the oil companies did for LA. My uncle works for them, and has for as long as I can remember.

READ THE WHOLE THING GUYS.

wikipedia?

are we really trusting info from wikipedia?

do you guys realize that ANYONE can edit wiki and thus it has virtually no credibility?!

i could start a post on deuce saying he eats babies.

im not saying that the team colors didnt come from the cities ties to oil, but i want to see it from a credible source before i believe it.

damn and i thought duce stopped the Haz for Baby Fat diet program.

I remember that being said years ago. La was the oil capital back then so it does make sense.

Sorry for getting political earlier. I was a still a bit drunk and fired up from debating with some friends on the decline of NO and who is to blame.

I don't like to get too political, but just what in the heck is going on down there. Having NO ties through my father and my grandfathers sister still lives in NO; I still love the city and the State. Is it Nagin or Blanco or both?
