"Ain'ts" nickname....
 
Ok, correct me if I'm wrong, but the nickname came from the idea, and slogan, "Ain't never going to the superbowl", right? Not only have we been, but we won. So now, anyone using this is either NFL dumb, or just plain retarded right?

But whatever it was it's ours and only true fans could use the word Aint's.

Yeah, to call us the Aints is pretty stupid since we won a SB. We're more like the Haves now..

The paper bags were ours first too, but all the sucky fans kind of stole that too.

We all know we're not the "Aints" anymore. The people that still use it have no new material, and THEY are the ones living in the past. We have a Super Bowl championship, you have an outdated nickname. We win. You lose.

It's from the 1980 season when the team went 1-15 and the fans wore bags on their heads.

So fans said the team was so bad they were the "Saints" minus the "S"

THE SUPERDOME WAS STILL SOLD OUT for that season.

And Breesfan27 is right, other teams who stink STEAL the paper bag idea from New Orleans.

Exactly what he said..

That name is pretty much irrelevant now but other team fans aren't very creative with ribbing so they use what they know... I say let em.. we will always have the Superbowl. That name should not even bother you or anyone else..

We can now use it on the Failcons or FalcAIN'T'S How about that?

More like 1987 when the Dome Patrol was born in New Orleans.

and if I remember correctly we beat the Jets in New York on a last second TD pass by Richard Todd and won something like 22-21. I remember watching that game.

HOWEVER...

And I should have taken a picture -- There were two Seahawks fans in 135, I, 1&2 who wore bags over their heads FOR THE ENTIRE GAME! Even I was impressed.

The front of the bag said, "AINTS" and the back said, "GO HAWKS!"

We got cursed by those two guys in those two seats!
