I'd like to see something Saints related. As you know, i've also expressed a theory that guys who use avatars of themselves tend to be cooler to everyone on the net, over the non-anything-related, or fantasy characters. Not that it's any problem on this board. I've had nothing but cool here.

back on topic. I'm in 623, and we have probably one of the best sections, as far as civility. There is one guy who looks like a Soprano, who's a bit demonstrative, but I never see him actually harassing anyone. If someone got ugly with anybody elses fans, I would step in. That crap aint happening in my section.

I can tell you, overall the Terrace has become much more civilized since the 80's, when the steps, floor, everyone, everything was soaked in beer, and I did see fights every game, and our first year back, '06, one dead guy. (he just died, no one killed him.) But that crap wont happen in my section.

We are loud, and we do raise hell, and I know I'm not like everyone else, being
a swamp dweller, but Im happy in the Terrace. Its still the best place to see the game, too.

Everybody be cool, and do what you can to make sure we remain the best fans in sports.

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

The worst visiting fans outside the division are Eagles fans...

OMG, they are the worst...

Can't censor their tongue, can't hold their liquor...

There's a running joke among Superdome Security that when they have to leave,

they roll themselves down the aisle and you just steer them like a loose wheel to the exit...

I went to a Saints game against the Cardinals in 2010 I think in Arizona. Was harrassed the entire game by two dudes in overalls! It ruined the game for me and my daughter was embarressed. We ended up just walking around the second half. Every stadium has them!

Yeah, when Drew has a bad day... It's gonna be a bad day as a visiting fan.
When we kick butt, there's not much they can say until we win, then it's, "F*** Y**, Saints Fan!"

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

The superdome and obnoxious fans have NOTHING on 2002-2006 Buc fans OMG!! Try living in Tampa and being a Saints fan around not only their dominance in the division for years but also their superbowl run..
It's not for the faint of hearts being in a rival city and your rival is the first in the Division to get a Superbowl.. (still aint)
The Raymond James is a hallow shell of it's former self than it used to be. Saints fans can comfortably take that stadium over now and we heckle them alot, i only do a little by blasting Saints music out of my car next to Buc fans on purpose or screaming out WHO DAT in the stadium but never need to fight or get in people's personal space.

I used to be able to get free tix to the NO at TB games. I NEVER wore any Saints stuff it was ugly.

BUT the seats were right under the Pirate Ship, so that is expected.

Been to good seats at other stadiums & was fine. Cheap seats at the same stadium & it was UGLY.
I was in Tampa this year with a Graham jersey on and didn't have a problem. Bucs fans were fine to me. Perhaps being 6'2" and 280 lbs might have helped a little.

Re: embarrassed by some folks in 650

I wasn't trying to start a discussion about the worst places to go to a game. Lord knows Philly, Buffalo, Boston, Oakland, etc. are places where visiting fans are made to feel much more unwelcomed.

But NO is a town that exists largely because of tourism. I would think that if anybody realized the importance of treating visitors well it would be Saints fans.

As far as I'm concerned, the privilege of beating on that wall belongs to the Saints season ticket holders in that section, and no one else. I would call security on them in a heartbeat, too. No disagreement there. Beating on the walls of someone else's stadium is just downright disrespectful, that's an offense that warrants an in-your-face (but still appropriate and civil) response.
Here's the thing though. All they were doing is cheering for their team. Maybe you don't think they should be hitting the walls. Maybe they shouldn't. But they weren't drunk or rowdy or yelling at anybody else. It was like 8 dudes hitting a wall on third down, and they were just having fun. It was pretty clear they weren't trying to get on anybody's nerves. They certainly weren't doing anything that warranted a visit from security.

To their credit though, they stopped doing it and started saying "bang bang bang bang!" instead. Pretty funny. Good dudes, and good sports even when people started singing the goodbye song at the end as they were leaving. The good Saints fans on the way out were giving them high-fives and handshakes. That is what you want to see.

I still don't understand why security went up to them instead of dealing with the drunk idiots who were causing all the problems in the first place. There were several 3 and 4 year old kids in the few rows just in front of us, if I had my kid there I would've been pretty upset at the way they are acting.

It took me and 6 or 7 other Saints fans to keep them from getting kicked out because we went to the guards and told them what was really going on. If anything I was just as aggravated with the guards as the bad eggs in the crowd, because the guards weren't even trying to get the whole story, they just took the word of one clearly drunk and beligerant Saints fan.
