For the Bag Head Supporters

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Question? Hasn\'t this thread become the latest in a long line of dead horses yet? Seems to me the whole world knows by now how you feel about the bags. Let\'s go on to something else. [Edited on 26/10/2003 by ...

Football is entertainment. Money is the motivating factor in football. Wearing a bag is a way to support the team monetarily (so that they don\'t move to another venue) while still making an opinion known.

Burning a flag, while legal, is an idealogical decision which shows a complete disgust for a governental policy or stance. Burning a flag shows disrespect to people who have risked their lives. Wearing a bag pisses off people who make millions of dollars to play a game.

Not the same at all.

whowatches --

Money isn\'t the motivating factor for me. Money might be the motivating factor for the players, but I don\'t think there is a player in the league that wants to lose.

I\'m not trying to suggest that wearing a bag is as bad as burniing a flag, but the comparison is fair in pointing out that they can both be justified the same way. My only point is that both are less than stellar ways of showing displeasure. There are better ways.

Like I said this is just my personal belief and if you beleive the other way then we just disagree.

Billy, sure looks like you had a bad day at the office. Have you ever felt like the pivotman? If not, you should today. Stating your opinion is one thing, but downing someone else is not cool. Whether I want to wear a bag on my head or my azz is none of your business. BTW, I am not a bagwearer I\'m just one ol\'guy who for the last seemingly lifetime have wanted the Saints to be totally successful and go to the big dance. It\'s in the philosophy, the Florida Marlins just won their second World Series in 11 years of exsistence . . . go figure. Take our last three games -- the Colts make us the laghing stock of pro sports, then we win two against teams with worst defenses in the Universe . . . go figure. The best we can hope for is cautious optimism regarding our game against Carolina. If we win this game then yea we are beginning to improve in the areas we need to improve in and if we don\'t win then our cautious optimism has been misguided and maybe we aren\'t ready to play with a prime time team. In each of our own ways (every poster) wants nothing more than for the boys from the Big Easy to be successful . . . but we are entitled to our own opinions and if we don\'t agree with yours doesn\'t make us any less of fans than you.

Hey Goodell . . . This year we will kick ass for free!
