Saints History

Apologies if this is posted in wrong place and if it is covered somewhere else. As a newcomer to the Saints I was wondering if there was a website or book or anything else that would be worth looking through to come up to speed with a full history of the team, players and organisation. This might just help me get up to the level of probably everybody else on here with knowing who's who and what's what.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Saints History

Ideal thanks for that some good reading for down time in work.

Ok got to ask it and again probably be shot down for this, where does the Who Dat originate from tempted to get one of the t-shirts with the fleur-des-lys and Who Dat purely to scramble heads here in Scotland.

Re: Saints History

Nice to see another UK Saints fan.
Wikipedia is pretty good for a quick overview of Saints history and civers individual seasons too.

Re: Saints History

More UK fans than I thought there would be, most you see over here are Raiders or Cowboys although did work beside a die hard Packers fan.
Reading through the Wikipedia stuff as well and going through the forum a lot of catching up to do but looking worth it.

Re: Saints History

What made you choose the Saints?.

Id been a fan of the NFL for a good few years but was watching most weeks and decided it was time yo pick a team and without any ties to any team started narrowing down a few teams and remembered listening to the 09 Championship game on BBC radio at work and how much I was pulling for a Saints win jumped on the bandwagon.

Re: Saints History

Pretty much the same I used to watch but never really had any allegiances to any particular team or area unlike Hockey. I did one of these joke which team best suits your personality and it came up with the Saints, thought it fitted in perfectly as have always had a love and admiration of New Orleans in terms of music, food, culture so made my choice on there.

Re: Saints History

There's a book entitled "Bags to Riches". Admittedly, I have not read it, but I bought it because Deuce was signing autographs. Nonetheless, it's a history of the Saints.

Re: Saints History
