You've been a Saint's fan for how long . . .

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; 1967...I was seven. I started playing N.O.R.D. that year. Pontchartrain Park Patriots...Richard Neal was a neighbor...used to get the entire team into a game every year he was there...God rest his soul. I've seen them all from Tom Fears days ...

1967...I was seven. I started playing N.O.R.D. that year. Pontchartrain Park Patriots...Richard Neal was a neighbor...used to get the entire team into a game every year he was there...God rest his soul. I've seen them all from Tom Fears days of Kilmer. Abramowitz. and Demsey, to Hank Stram's Lightning and Thunder (Muncie & Galbreth). Excuse me if I'm still not turning flips at 13-and-0. I'm hoping our ugly ways don't catch up with us at the wrong time.

Well, I've been in the states since 1978 ... didn't know what football was. There was no NFL in Europe back then (no exhibition games played). Since I landed in New Orleans, it's been ever since, really! Dang! I've been here along time!

Pretty much since 1966. I was 8 when the Saints started and loved professional football. Back in the 70s it was hard to be a serious fan. It was 1978 when my addiction became complete. Haven't missed a game since.

I've been a fan since birth so that makes 30 but my Saints memories start at about age 5 so I guess you could say 25 years, doesn't make a difference how ever you want to slice it
