What? You are back for more?!? Dude, what about:

"I am done with this team for the year. Fire everybody!!!!!!!!" (http://blackandgold.com/saints/62430...tml#post555311 (Saints vs Seahawks Gameday Thread and Chat))

You should stop fooling yourself about this team. Clearly, you are one and done with them. So, please stop f**king around and find yourself a team you can ACTUALLY SUPPORT.

You are continuing to fool yourself ..... but the REAL bad news is .... WAIT FOR IT ..... you ARE CONTINUING TO WASTE OUR TIME.

Re: Saints Versus Playoff Contenders

Definition of a Football Fan (Borrowed)
(1) What is a football fan? The word “fan” is an abbreviation of “fanatic,” meaning “an insane or crazy person,” in the case of football fans, the term is appropriate. They behave insanely, they are insane about the past, and they are insanely loyal.
(2) Football fans wear their official team T-shorts and warm-up jackets to the mall, the supermarket, the classroom and even --- if they can get away with it --- to work. If the team offers a giveway item, the fans rush to the stadium to claim the hat or sports bag or water bottle that is being handed out that day. Baseball fans go similarly nuts when their favorite teams give away some attractive freebie. Football fans just plain behave insanely. Even the fact that fans spend the coldest months of the year huddling on icy metal benches in places like Chicago proves it. In addition, football fans decorate their houses with football-related items of every kind. To them, team bumper stickers belong not only on car bumpers, but also on fireplace mantels and front doors. When they go to a game, which they do as often as possible, they also decorate their buses. True football fans not only put on their team jackets and grab their pennants but also paint their head to look like helmets or wear glow-in-the-dark cheeseheads. At the game, these fans devote enormous energy to trying to get a “wave” going.
(3) Football fans are insanely fascinated by the past. They talk about William “Refrigerator” Perry’s 1985 Super Bowl touchdown as though it had happened last week. They describe the “Fog Bowl” as if dense fog blanketed yesterday’s game, not 1988’s playoff match between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears. They excitedly discuss John Elway’s final game before retiring --- when he won the 1999 Superbowl and received MVP honors --- as if it were current news. And if you can’t manage to get excited about such ancient history, they look at you as though you were the insane one.
(4) Last of all, football fans are insanely loyal to the team of their choice, often dangerously so. Should their beloved team lose three in a row, fans may begin to react negatively as a way to hid their broken hearts. They still obsessively watch each game and spend the entire day afterward reading and listening to the postgame commentary in newspapers, on TV sports segments, and on sports radio. Further, this intense loyalty makes fans dangerous. To anyone who dares to say to a loyal fan that another team has better players or coaches, or God forbid, to anyone wandering near the home cheering section wearing the jacket of the opposing team, physical damage is a real possibility. Bloody noses, black eyes, and broken bones are just some of the injuries inflicted on people cheering the wrong team when fans are around. In 1997, one man suffered a concussion at a game in Philadelphia when Eagle fans beat him up for wearing a jacket with another team’s insignia.
(5) From February through August, football fans act like any other human beings. They pay their taxes, take out the garbage, and complain abut the high cost of living. But when September rolls around, the colors and radios go on, the record books come off the shelves, and the devotion returns. For the true football fan, another season of insanity has begun.
