There are a number of fans here who...

...watch John Gilliam run a kickoff back for a TD, not realizing that other than a half-footed Tom Dempsey set an unlikely Field Goal, not leave fans much to cheer...

...were there to watch an amazing talent in Archie Manning get clobbered before the rules to protect the quarterback were even speculated...

...were there to watch Buddy Deliberto slobber on WDSU ridicule the team that many of us loved reporting that fans should continue wearing bags...

...were there as Bum Phillips traded away all the talent the Saints had save Ricky Jackson and Stan Brock for over the hill bums...

...were there when Mr. Finks brought respectability to the Saints, installling a winning tradition with solid drafts and good coaching hires...

...were there when Coach Mora stubbornly refused to adjust, even in games, and let the best players go without the guidance of Jim Finks...

...were there when Buddy D convinced season ticket holders to lobby for Mike Ditka who, in turn, brought us a bipolar running back wearing a wedding dress...

...were there when Jim Haslett showed that a head coach should sometimes shut it, trust his players and his assistants who were better than him and not a quarterback who thought everything was a joke...

...were there when Hurricane Katrina and local bums destroyed our home giving Mr Benson an excuse to take it all away to San Antonio...

...were there for "The Block" on MNF against the Saints with music of Green Day & U2 still ringing in our ears...

...were there for the march to Lombardi Gras and validation of over forty years of painful drama...

...we have earned the right to cheer, to boo, to laugh, to cry, and now, to demand excellence.

Amen, Brotha!

Wow ... I mean just wow ... Alot of Haters and we're all Saints Fans ... You obviously are the guilty party because you took offense to what I said ( Notice I didn't Point anyone out ) just said , I know the players read this and we should be holding them up when they need it the same way they held New Orleans up when the Government was considering whether or not to even rebuild it. Alot of " on the contrary " kind of folks SMH. But go ahead doubt and hate all you want , I'm just not giving up on the Saints they are more to me than a Team. They did alot for me in a very bad part of my life ... So who am I to not do the same for them at a bad part in theirs ?

You Can't Say Impossible without first saying Im Possible ...

Re: We aren't doing our Jobs as Fans Either ...

Nobody (OK, well 99% of the members here, anyway) will give up on this team if they are 1-15 again.

That said, we live in the real world here and know this season is all but mathematically lost.

Sorry, but anyone questioning someone's "fandom" or calling people bandwagon fans because they have had their expectations this season nuked make me say what I said.

That kind of rhetoric oozes from every pore of SR.com and we don't need that here.

I seriously doubt that anyone willing to even show up and talk about what is wrong with this team could be labeled as anything other than a REAL FAN.

The posers, fakes, bandwagoners, et al left at 0-2

Please do not misunderstand the reply's you are receiving on your thread. None of us are "haters" of the Saints. Right now we are hating on you because of your judgements and labels you have chosen to apply here. We have earned the right to feel how we feel about the team we continue to support with out having our fandom questioned by you.

You would have gotten a lot further had you not personally attacked and labeled people as non fans because they do not buy into your definition of being a fan. Everyone handles things in their own way and you should respect that. Some vent, some hold it in, some remain realists, some optimistic, some prefer gloom and doom.

The fact of the matter is that they are all still here on B&G because they love their team in their own way. On Sunday they will all be pulling for a win, wearing something black and gold...

Please take a moment to reflect on your approach, we are all brothers in this but to be honest if my brother questioned my love for the Saints he would have to watch Sundays game through swollen eyes. Do what you need to, say what you need to say, don't label the fans that are here.

Huggz!

JP... You have written a masterpiece. This needs to be a poster.

I dont hate anybody on this site. He's Full O' Crap, but I actually think he means well. ...and actually the title of the thread: We arent doing our job...I do think the Dome can get louder.

I think you're a little full O' Crap, but I know you mean well. You want people to stay positive. Trust me, even though we're b*tching, we're showing up for the games, and we are bringing holy hell to the Dome. So while we might bemoan and hand-wring, we'll never stop supporting the Saints. That said, if my government can be ok with idiots cheerleading in the street for the communists that were shooting at my cousins, I can certainly support your right to express yourself on a football chat board. Dont be shy about expressing. Thats what we're here for.

Re: We aren't doing our Jobs as Fans Either ...

have you met chopique?

I love all of you guys, because you care.... I've seen drunk coonazzes
in bars nearly tear the place up, because our team that was already 0-6
happened to be losing again. Like it was a big SURPRISE that we, the losingest team in football was LOSING!!!!

It was the Saints fans that made me a Saints fan, back in 1982.

(hey some fyi. Last year a good friend on here suggested if the Texans
ever won anything we Hou-Dats might switch allegiance. Well, the Saints
are 0-4, and the Texans are 4-0, and I still dont give a flying donkeys nut about the Texans. )
