Can someone please help...
 
I am getting a little confused as to when we were established. I always believed that we were established in 1966 as that was when we got the franchise but some say it was '67 as that was when we played our first game. A minor thing I know but I have always had '66 in my head. Any thoughts on this extremely trivial matter?

Totally accurate for what you are asking

Mostly accurate for the rest.

If you read Jeff Duncan's book From Bags to Riches, it has all the details how Louisiana politics were involved in getting the franchise. Highly recommend the book for all Saints Fans.

That all depends, I guess, on if you believe life begins at conception or at birth ...

It shows here November 1, 1966.... BUT, was the seed planted and nurtured much earlier?

I moved to Louisiana in the summer of 1967 and have been a Saints fan from the beginning.
