Grade: 12th gets an big fat F

I was embarrassed more by the fans than the team last night. I was watching at the usual Monday night watering hole. I had to eat a ton of crow because of them. I got more grief about my fellow saints fans than the team themselves. Booing in the second quarter? My god sell your tickets if you are half a fan. That was appalling. They went to the division last year for god sakes. You shocked the MNF crew. They could not believe it. Thats bad. From that point on the fans gave them the green light to bash the saints.
Saint fans have long way to go to become a 12th man.
Poor, Poor, Poor

Re: Grade: 12th gets an big fat F

I wasn't booing - because I turned off the game in the second quarter. Fair weather fan? - no - I just knew what was coming, and decided not to torture myself.

So the fans were booing, eh? I can't say I'm surprised. Perhaps they shouldn't boo at the team, but the fans have a right to be upset. The Saints offence took the wrong plane to the Chicago, and have been missing in action ever since.

LOL We all new they we struggling. The team needed something. The fans showed they could not be trusted to be that something. Booing in the second qrt proves it. I understand the 4th. but the second is way to early for this team. They gave us more than we hoped for last year and now the fans turned on them. You need a road trip to some of the true 12th man stadiums. The fans sux. Either you believe and are willing to support the team or not. If not give up your tickets to a fan that knows how to be a 12th man.

Booing in the second quarter? -- now that does surprise me. Were any of the fans wearing paper bags?

Watch for it next game. If we're dropping to 0 and 4, getting blown out in the next game, I bet you'll be seeing paper bags in the Dome before the night's end.

I didn't see any fans wearing bags, but Cornholio just couldn't wait to have the tech staff cue up some old clips of footage with the bags.
I hate that piece of crap "announcer".

I thought I was the only one that couldn't stand that announcer. Cornholio... LOL. No, now that I think about it, I'd have to say Cornholio is too classy a name for that sorry excuse. He shouldn't be in the booth.

When you spend the amount of money for season tickets, parking, concessions etc, you expect a little more than ONE first down in a damn quarter of play. The way this team is playing is embarrassing pure and simple. That is why the fans are booing. I don't blame them one bit. I watched many a game this past Monday and heard booing from many a fan. Fans have a right to boo, perhaps if you didn't like it you could have left your "watering hole" and turned the channel. I have had more people come up to me this morning and ask "what is wrong with your Saints"? Embarrassing pure and simple.
I have a life after and before football season. LOL the saints are an addiction.
You read and here all over the place how good the fans are in NO. I believe it. We just need to learn how to be that 12th man. We have never been that on a regular bases. As far as running from the water hole with my tail tucked, sorry can not do that. I am a man and can handle the truth. We suxed as fans last night on national TV. That is the truth. I am still proud to be a saints and hope that Sean does give lessons to the fans. He has commented more than once about there behavior. I rack it up to lack of knowledge. Not so much the fans fault as the Teams history.
If it costs to much to support the team when they are lossing give up the tickets. For those on the waiting list for season tickets please remove your name. I am looking for a second set.
