The protest!
 
Home opener is Sep 9th. Who we play is moot. How cool would it be for the cameras to see an ocean of Free Payton ribbons? 4" ribbon on every fan and giant 6' cardboard ribbons being held like an ocean of black and gold.

We need to fashion an intelligent revolt.... Lord knows the rest of the NFL nation is just scratching to find another reason to say Saints fans are dirty, ignorant, "just like their dirty team, etc... If there is ANYTHING negative in the campaign the rest the NFL fans will spin that against New Orleans. So keep it positive and focus on the one thing we REALLY want.

Sean Payton back.

It is also going to be difficult to get 72,000 fans all on the same page, and spend money to do it... unless that cost is only $1-$2.

For $1-$2 per ribbon I bet someone could sell a crap load of ribbons in New Orleans before the game.

FREE PAYTON where "personalize it" is.

Ill take it one step further, since it is just ribbon and cardboard, imagine turning on another teams game and randomly seeing 6' black in gold ribbons with "free payton" in the stadium... There are Saints fans EVERYWHERE, there are also fans of other teams who hate Goodell just enough to join in out of spite.

I wonder if Benson has the testicular fortitude to hang a 60' version on the outside of the dome before the game?

I'd almost bet when godell shows up to the dome, he'll be sittin' in Bensons box in a show of....choke.... "unity". Even as Tom's smiling through clenched teeth, I'd also bet he wouldn't mind some free Payton material floating around. I like the idea of a civilized statement, just as long as it's huge.

:shock:So the 60 footer on the dome should be 120 feet? With GOLD LIGHTS! And a blimp!

I dont like to down anybody's post, but I personally don't like that idea, and I make stuff like that, including the banner lol. I think it would be much better for every fan to wear a Sean Payton mask to EVERY game.

You are not "downing" anything, its your opinion. I have seen the mask idea before and it is just not something EVERYONE could do easily... Elderly are not going to wear a mask, a ribbon on the other hand would match their attire.

For this project to work it needs to be inexpensive, easy to do, reusable, not an obstruction to vision, drinking, eating.....

I don't like masks for Halloween much less going to a football game and trying to drink, eat, and watch the game AND kids.

If a mask is done, the first comment out of opposition will be "why are you hiding"?

Everybody needs to do their own thing. Somebody really needs to put in a call to "**** the Eagles" girl and offer her some seats near a camera with a new shirt.

TheOak 05-08-2012 09:58 AM

Everybody does their own thing now...

United the Who Dat nation stands!

Divided we look like Burbon St.

Already do boycott everything nfl and espn. I've gotta say 20,000-30,000 Payton masks would be pretty outrageous! The tv crews would have a field day with that. So how about making ribbons mandatory and the masks optional?
