I like the idea of immortalizing the Dome Patrol. At some point in the near future we need to do something for our Superbowl winners and ownership needs to be recognized. Did ya'll know that Benson bought the team to keep them from being moved? He thought he would be one of the investors......turned out he was the only one. He's responsible for keeping the Saints here. Even if he did talk about moving the Saints to San Antonio it was during a difficult time.

Geez.....I guess when the NFL is laying the boots to you like Carolina is taking it this year then there is nothing better to do than gripe about crap like this.

As stated, I'm 100% sure the people that did it knew his history with New Orleans considering it was twice as long as it was in Carolina. I think it is great that a fantastic player like him was able to be the lightning rod for the start of their franchise and could become an icon for the early years of their team. Know self respecting Saints fan could not acknowledge he was a great player in both cities and he was one of the best individuals around.

I guess by the close minded thinking of those original post quotes if Tomlinson has a nice 3 year career in New York with the Jets we should all forget his years in San Diego as he belongs to New York now and Chargers fans have no business remembering him. Childish.

I have never met the man, but I have alot of love for him, and his entire family. Number 8, will always be my hero. But I'm down for whatever you guys want to do. Let me know.
I have met Archie and his wife and they are really nice folks. Saw them back in September as well since we often eat at the same restaurant. Weird, I know. I took offense when he was pulling for the Dolts against us, but having a child, that would be the only right thing to say. However, I also know that your heart doesn't have to speak what it really feels. He should be included since he is the face that the rest of the world seems to associate with the Saints. Also, he is a CLASS ACT and his family has done a lot for New Orleans and the surrounding area. Pass the bucket.

here's two of my favorite quotes from the first 5 pages.

Stupid Saints fans, they travel good and stay till the clocks hits 0 ( real ones not superbowl bandwagoners.) Damn them!

From the sound of that last TD the Aint's scored, there were NO Panthers fans left in the vicinity.
