In promoting his upcoming film “If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise,” Spike Lee flooded the Times-Picayune with some positive pap that rings totally false.

Talking about the Saints’ historic Super Bowl win, he offered this quote in Tuesday’s Living section:

“We knew the Saints were going to win. There’s very few times in sports when this happens, but the Saints weren’t trying to win a game. They had a cause. And no matter what Peyton Manning was going to do, it was not going to help. The Saints were going to win that game. We knew it. The Saints knew it. Coach (Sean) Payton knew it.”

That’s supposed to be a testament to the Saints. In reality, it diminishes what they accomplished

Spike Lee is a Lakers and SF 49ers fan born in

Born Shelton Jackson Lee

Spike Lee Voted Most Annoying Celebrity Lakers Fan

Ladies and gentleman this is what a bandwagon fan looks like. I completely agree with your thoughts SM.

This is coming from the jackass who showed up at one of our games wearing a Jets jersey. Someone needs to shove ol' Spikey off the bandwagon while it's traveling at high speeds. Gawd, he is annoying.

He is trying to give acompliement there, but yeah, not really.
Fan support this past year,and all of the years, and the city and region needing some news,something big and wonderful for a change is impt.
Rita Benson and her grandfather,TB,still the real owner of the Saints, the coaches, plays, and the team did what they did on the field. Point blank.
From the coaches and head coach SP,to the players and leader,DB, this team made it happen as a team playing each game as they came and each quarter and with no team member acting a selfish fool,showboating, but working as a team.

Um actually Spike Lee has done a hell of a lot to raise awareness for our city. Just because someone isn't a fan of our team does not make them a horrible human being. If anything I take it as a compliment that a fan of another team has the ability to come outside of himself and say something nice about our team. Those of you who are hating on this dude need to take a long hard look at themselves and admit the real reason for your distain.

Not starting any crap with you....but I dislike him because I feel he is a douchebag. No need to do any long hard looking at myself.

Maybe someone needs to take a long hard look at themselves for insinuating that the reason people don't like him is maybe racial.
