Saints call Falcons ‘classless’

The New Orleans Saints — still trying to put the infamous “Bountygate” scandal behind them — are calling the Falcons “classless” after handing Atlanta its first loss of the season Sunday.

From USA Today:

“They were talking (expletive) to our guy Curtis Lofton,” Saints linebacker Scott Shanle told Mike Silver on Sunday night. “I couldn’t even understand them. They were just walking all over our drills trying to mess with him. (Linebacker Jonathan) Vilma went and told their coach it was classless and they didn’t even say anything. It set the tone for the day. It was classless and they got what they deserved.”

Lofton is a former Falcon playing in his first season with the Saints.

Vilma, by the way, is only playing while he appeals a year-long suspension for allegedly participating in a program that paid players for injuring opposing players.

Some of the Saints players were also offended by a dance video made by Atlanta safety William Moore.

The “D-Block” rap video was posted on the Falcons’ website over the weekend.

“That video would never be allowed nor would our players make a video like that in our locker room,” NBC’s Pro Football Talk quoted an unidentified “Saints source.”

Of course, the Falcons have done their part to stoke the rivalry, which has been dominated in recent years by the Saints.

Last week, Roddy White told the Journal-Constitution:

“I don’t like nothing about the Saints. The colors. The city. Nothing. But they’ve got some good food, though. Other than the food, nothing.”

After Sunday’s game, White refused to credit the Saints.

“It’s not like they came out here and won a game,” he said. “I think we kind of gave it to them.”

Shanle, however, told Yahoo! Sports that Sunday’s result just proves the Saints “own” the Falcons.

“They’re like our little brothers. Deep down they know they can’t mess with us even when we are having a down year,” he said.

Why would the Saints players be offended by this ignorant video?

Re: Saints call Falcons ‘classless’

screw Atlanta and screw Roddy White.

He would throw is grandmother under the bus to have Drew throw TD's to him. Haters gotta hate.

They have been that way since as long as I can remember. I wish someone would smack Roddy White in his face.

A big thanks to whoever an unidentified "Saints source” is - that's 2 minutes and 44 seconds that I'll never get back.

I can't imagine any Saints player really gives a rat's azz about that video.

You know between this video and the one of Matt Ryan playing guitar while the other guy sang and the d backs chanted, the 'clowns should give up on this foosball thing and start a family band with a brightly painted school bus
