I sometimes wonder if some of the generalized ragging on Roman Harper has something to do with this. Also Malcolm Jenkins who I believe played for Ohio State against LSU in the BCS Championship game. Not wanting to discuss those players here in this thread, but certain people do rag on these two Saints players, again and again and again, constantly. Repeat, I'm NOT WANTING TO DISCUSS THEM HERE, lol.

I have no real love for LSU in particular, but I do love it when LSU and Louisiana native guys do really well in the NFL. It's part of why I'm homeristic aboutTracy Porter (and I will say this, as an aside, Porter has kept his non-profit charity active in Louisiana, in spite of him moving to Denver, which people should like him for even if they don't like him as a player).

Re: Does La. really like the Mannings?

I think it comes down to 2 categories.

1) People who like them because they are from La.
2) People who like them as football players

As for me, I can't stand the offspring. The love affair people have in this state for them is amazing considering they haven't done squat for this state!

As a football player, I love them. I love the game of football. I'm not going to hate them because they are not playing for the Saints. I love them for what they bring to the game as competitors.

Pretty fair comment. I am a mix.. Origin doesn't matter to me.. indifferent. They are good football players, that cant be taken away from them. Their attitudes stink and I think they act like brats. If they are not in my face I am 100% indifferent, they have never done anything for me or to me. If I have to listen to the complaining from Eli, or see Payton throw a tantrum, I change the channel.

On the origin part... I have no allegiance to anyone from Louisiana that has no allegiance to Louisiana. Neither of them have shown any love for the state after High School.

I am not from new Orleans so I have never been subjected to Archie other than on the field, and I was 12 when he went to the Oilers.

I have met Archie once, in Destin Fl. He was walking down the beach with Cash that owned Cash's bar and night club. He he was a nice guy.

Re: Does La. really like the Mannings?

They are both La. boys. Their father was the best football player ever for the Saints(at the time) and was the only bright spot on a crappy team. They sat in the stands and watched their father play and rooted for my team. I like them. They are both good at what they do and deserve at least my respect.(not that that says alot)lol
Also, I could care less if they didn't go to LSU.....ROLL TIDE!!!

They're one of the first families of New Orleans!

Well Archie showed up to speak, and in 1988, fans still chanted "Archie! Archie! Archie!
He's still my favorite Saint!

Their generosity and support in the community is the standard for all good New Orleanians!

Great Post, Mike. Reflects the way many of us love and appreciate Archie and his family in South Louisiana.

Re: Does La. really like the Mannings?

And I'll add that Archie and his sons are alike in that they loathe drawing attention to themselves for their charitable work - they do it for the right reasons...

And another thing, I have never met a more gracious celebrity in person in my life than Archie Manning; we all have dreams of being the star quarteback, well, I wanted to be like him as a person after having met him multiple times - just a great, great person...

  • Celebrities who donated $1 million to help the cause include The Rolling Stones, actor George Clooney, singer Celine Dion, actor Nicolas Cage, comedian Jerry Lewis, and Beyonce's man rapper Jay-Z.
  • Angelina Jolie sent letters to members of Congress and the White House, asking for increased efforts in the disaster relief. Angelina found herself shocked at the images coming from New Orleans, a city she has often referred to as being very close to her heart.
  • John Travolta, a licensed pilot, flew to Baton Rouge with his wife Kelly Preston, carrying much needed food supplies and tetanus vaccines. The Scientologist couple then toured the flooded city of New Orleans and visited shelters and rescue workers. "What we've seen in the shelters is wonderful, because people are being taken care of. What we've seen in the city is disastrous," the actor said.
  • Singer Macy Gray paid a visit to a camp in Houston, Texas and gladly handed out clothing and toiletries to those in need. "I just really wanted to help out. I think the most important thing to them is their futures. It is crazy when you don't know what is going to happen to you the next day," Macy said.
  • TV host Oprah Winfrey decided to cut her summer vacation short to visit those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Oprah called on her friends including Julia Roberts and Jamie Foxx to help her bring hope to the victims of Katrina. Oprah said that she was shocked by the tragic situation she found in New Orleans and that nothing could have prepared her for it. "I was sitting at home feeling frustrated and useless, like so many other people, so I came down to personally assess how I could best be of service," Oprah said in a statement.
  • Steven Spielberg, $750,000 to the American Red Cross and $750,000 to the Bush Clinton Fund
  • Hilary Duff donated $250,000.
  • Sean Penn rescued people using an occasionally leaky boat.
  • Michael Jackson offered a song, “From the Bottom of My Heart”.
Along with a laundry list of NFL Athletes and professional sports figures.
