OK, now here's where this fan draws the line...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; "Right now, what's heartache for me ... when you walk off that field and you've got guys out there playing their balls to the wall, and you've got folks in the stands screaming and hollering, 'Y'all (expletive) suck,' you know, ...

OK, now here's where this fan draws the line...

"Right now, what's heartache for me ... when you walk off that field and you've got guys out there playing their balls to the wall, and you've got folks in the stands screaming and hollering, 'Y'all (expletive) suck,' you know, you don't do that," Grant said.

New Orleans Saints' Charles Grant feels 'heartache' at fans' reaction | New Orleans Saints Central - - NOLA.com



Look, I'm as mad/disappointed/ill as any fan could be about yesterday and think that the Saints laid the most rotten of eggs in the Dome.

HOWEVER, if some fans really did this as Grant claims, then they are NOT fans.

Everyone has a right to be frustrated and say that these guys didn't play well or that the postseason outlook is turning grim, but there's no excuse for this type of treatment towards our players.

Do these fools think telling them that they "bleeping suck" is going to make them play better???

Yeah I heard something about this. I pray it isn't true.

Unfortunately, even if it isn't true, Grant thinks it's true....last thing we need is for the guys to think they've lost the fans....

Bull... if they suck a fan has a right to say they suck!

Sorry you are professionals its apart of the game deal with it. Fans pay them to perform and if they don't they deserve to be called out.

My question is "who pays the bills"... the answer... the fans.

Re: OK, now here's where this fan draws the line...

Well that isnt right...but what i get out of that story is C.Grant thinks we should be happy with the lack of effort they displayed on the field yesterday..Like saying the Saints never been 14 ans 2....Well Mr Grant you made a few plays yesterday so i guess your worth all that money now..If he and the defense start playing and quit diving at peoples feet and making subpar Qbs look like hall of famers..then you wont have to worry about a few fans getting on your case.

Re: OK, now here's where this fan draws the line...

Hey Charles, if you showed up more than once a season, maybe you'd have more of a legitimate beef with the fans. However, 43 tackles total and your first sack since the Jets game (yes, that's 11 games ago) doesn't mean you're earning your $4.1Million salary. You had a good game Sunday. Bully. Beat your man. Stop the run. Get a sack. Force a fumble. Win a Super Bowl.

Get a few more athletic moves while you're wallowing in self-pity for allowing one of the worst teams ever to beat your a$$ up.

Re: OK, now here's where this fan draws the line...

25 years ago I might have yelled "You Suck!" and beat my chest proclaiming my fanhood.

Those 25 years are behind me now. These days I see that behavior as inappropriate, and certainly not something I would want my daughter to see me doing. Anymore, I just mumble to myself "Man, we suck", and shake it off. I can certainly see where players might find it offensive.

The thing is that sometimes the truth hurts. They did suck yesterday. As a fan I might feel like expressing that. As a player I might think a fan expressing that is mostly clueless. I think both have valid points.

"BLEEP" YOU, Charles Grant. Why not try a little something I like to call, EFFORT!

Re: OK, now here's where this fan draws the line...

So, we blow a 17 point lead, in the Dome, against the 2-12 Bucs, with HFA on the line and CHarles Grant's greatest heartache is that some fans booed them?

Geez Charles.
