Welcome to Black and Gold and welcome to Who Dat Nation! Here is a great reference site which contains detailed statistical information about the franchise since its first season.

Re: Saints History

You can also just ask some of us that have been fans since day one of the franchise. I was nine when my dad was transferred to Barksdale AFB in northwestern Louisiana in the early summer of 1967. I was more of a baseball fan at the time, but did follow as much NFL as I could. I was overjoyed when I discovered that my new home state was getting its own NFL team. The rest is history. I live, breathe and bleed Saints football.

I was born in Rapid outside of Ellsworth AFB in 1957. I lived there until we moved down here.

Re: Saints History

Try this. It's pretty good. Covers the first twenty years of the franchise and Book 2 picks up from there.

As you know, during that time the dreaded ArkLaTx, was virtually 100% cowgirls country, so that explains my stunted development/growth as a Saints fan.

But I have been taking vitamins, supplements and Black & Gold Saints Fan Miracle Grow, and now I am big and strong!!

Must have been a amazing experience watching the side go from disaster to disaster and then the first playoffs and Dome Patrol to finally see major success in the last 8 years or so.

Re: Saints History

Thanks for the help and advice everyone and Guido I could happily sit and pick your brain over everything you must have seen over the years, I wouldn't want to overstep the mark and annoy anybody though.
I do have to say in the short time I've been a member in here I've never been made more welcome to any forum or group before. I can say with pride and if I'm allowed I'm a member of the Who Dat nation.
