Mike and Mike blast the city of New Orleans

I was listening this morning, like I rarely do for obvious reasons and one of the Mikes was talking about how he was here and was terrified of being robbed. He said he was set up with all of his equipment before the dome reopening Atlanta game and a cop came up to him and said "you are going to get robbed" and walked away. He was talking about how the cop didn't offer to help or any suggestions where to go that was safer. He said he was scared ****less. He said last year when he came for the Super Bowl he left a restaurant and walked around the corner and looked around and was obviously in the wrong place and was scared to death. Basically made it sound like our whole city is dangerous. I don't totally disagree, but still. He did go on to say we know how to show people a good time and the SB was great.

Just like anywhere, there are the bad areas and there are the good areas... With that said, I've never felt scared at anytime while being in New Orleans

I agree with Mitch - use your brain when traveling anywhere!
I've been to New Orleans many, many times and have never felt threatened or been afraid and have experienced nothing but kindness and hospitality while visiting.

Re: Mike and Mike blast the city of New Orleans

If you're in downtown Manhattan New York and take the wrong turn, you can get mugged at ANY moment.

Take a train to Brooklyn or the Bronx, get off and take a left or right down a street and you'll get mugged.

I have had several friends live there and one, in particular, said he was mugged 15 times. The expression goes "you're not a New Yorker until you've been mugged at least twice."

It's called living and traveling in the inner cities of the U.S. Be careful where you walk. NYPD is even less helpful, along with Chicago, Detroit etc. What are the cops supposed to do, babysit them and buy them a drink-i-poo?

They are such idiots it's unreal. They spew this drivel just for ratings so someone will be "incensed" and pay attention to them.

Re: Mike and Mike blast the city of New Orleans

There is a certain segment of people, New Orleans "booster" types, who think that everybody "out there" LOVES New Orleans, that the world loves our food and music and culture, that everyone thinks it's the coolest town, that New Orleans is known and loved by everybody all over the world.... And these people think that everybody thinks like they do -- that New Orleans is the best place on earth.

And NEWS FLASH -- a lot of people DON'T FEEL THAT WAY, they actually hate us, they loathe the city and its people, and they wish the whole city would just go away and stop existing. They wish it just wasn't even there for them to have to deal with. A lot of people would be perfectly happy if New Orleans fell into the swamp, or if it had never been rebuilt after Katrina. They DON'T like us and never will.

So this "Mike" is just speaking for a large proportion of the national population, confirming what his audience already thinks about the city, telling them what they want to hear, reflecting the thoughts of a large number of people who don't "get" New Orleans and would rather not have to go there at all, or even think about it.

He is only reflecting what a large number of people think, and the sooner people realize this, the better.

The other thing that this displays is the self-defeating animosity that is endemic to New Orleans -- the NOPD guy who does nothing to help, but enjoys making the visitor uncomfortable and kind of antagonizing him. I see this a lot, it's a certain strain of negative thinking in the city.

Re: Mike and Mike blast the city of New Orleans

My first thought was "P#$$ys"
Then , "there are places in every city you do not go alone or at night."

Then one is from New York City, and the other grew up in Cleveland... Seriously!?

Re: Mike and Mike blast the city of New Orleans

WHAT!?!? ... I used to like them guys, ... hard to believe a coupla' guys from NYC & Cleveland would even think like that ... and last year, at the Superbowl when he walked around the corner & thought he was in the wrong place ... he was probably in the right place ... from my personal, urban experiences, .

Stick to commenting on football, fellas ... it's what you're supposedly good at, eh?
