I respect, nope, ackmowledge and accept everyone else\'s views.

Me - # 87 was not classless. Joe did not taunt the opposition, Joe did not taunt the opposition fans, Joe did not make any gestures that were immoral or likely to cite a riot, Joe - actually - did not take all day about it.

Shame it had a pre-meditated touch to it.

But I am now really pleased he did it because for the first time in a long time I keep seeing the wonderful THE Black & Gold and THE Fleur-de-Lys plastered all over the media, that is subconsiously reminding sports fans that \"that incident\" was when the Saints won well.

Frankly, if I was a millionaire I would pay the fine and take the whole Saints out to dinner for the pleasure I have got from the Saints unifrom and logo hogging the tv screens. In short

Our Saints, Our City, Our Soul
Saints are individuals of exceptional holiness

My bottom line is that I\'m a football fan. Not old school, not new school. I appreciate a well executed play, offensive or defensive. I appreciate seeing a player make a fantastic effort, regardless of the outcome. I don\'t like the cheap shots, and to me, I really wish George Teague would\'ve rung Owens bell a little harder when he pulled his first stunt.
I think it\'s tough to watch a game you love get exploited in self gratification and commercialism, but if that\'s the way the game is going, I guess I\'ll have to filter what I see and ignore the garbage that comes with it. Believe me, I make a big deal myself about every one of Owens antics, and honestly I wouldn\'t wish that poseur on my team anyday. Hopefully more players like Deuce come out of the colleges.
If the upbringing of our players is a problem then perhaps the colleges should take it seriously when they pass someone based on their football talents alone. Funny how Dexter Manley couldn\'t read but he has a college degree..

Have I lit a fire yet?

I fully agree with what you\'re saying.
As for the colleges not marking the players seriosly, I think that is a serious problem, but I still feel it is better than the NBA where they bring a guy out of high school and give him 90 mil without playing a game.

I was at that game. It was no fault of Teague\'s, he had T.O. in his sites, but Owens knelt down like he was going to pray at the last second, and that is why he didn\'t get knocked out. Had he been standing, Teague would have knocked him into the Arena League :P
Rumor has it that Jerry Jones covered all of Teague\'s fines with the league.
