Congrats to the people of B&G

I'm certain this will get moved to the everything else board, but before it does, I wanted to say a couple of things:

(1) Thanks to the big guys who run this site. It is very much part of my week and my well being, as I'm sure it is for many others here. You have gone above and beyond the call of duty, and many of us love you for it.

(2) Welcome to all the new guys who've been keeping things interesting around here the last while.

(3) Props to all the guys who are here week in and week out keeping the analysis and info coming.

(4) Thanks to everyone who has made this week's discussion so much better than the last two. I've very much enjoyed the lively banter this week

(5) I'm glad there is a place where I can talk football, learn football, and generally enjoy the team that has sometimes been referred to as "the crazy girl friend".

Mad love to B&G the site, our boys in B&G, and the characters of B&G the web site!

Indeed. Thanks to the folks on here who\'ve made me feel welcome these last two weeks ... and even to those who haven\'t!!!

It\'s a good thing you guys have here, whether we all agree or not, and I appreciate being able to be a part of it all. It\'s tough being a Saints fan sometimes, but we are what we are, kinda like a support group...

Now I can be moved to off-topic as well, I suppose!

Also want to give big ups to all. Nice thread Kool. I love to be able to disagree and agree with Saints fans, and not fans from 31 other teams. We all pretty much have our pulse on the team, even if our opinions vary. This is a great site. Everyone should encourage their \"intelligent\" buddies to join and keep it going forever.

Very true, if you even mention anything about the Saints on a general NFL forum, you get laughed at, or brushed off. Generally speaking, most non-Saints football fans don\'t know much/care about what goes on down here in the bayou. they go on what they see on ESPN, which isn\'t much (minus a certain backwards pass lately). It\'s nice to have a site where members have real interest biased or not.

And we\'re not a support group, more of a \"special interests group\", hehe.

absolutely...this is by far the best nfl forum on the net...i have frequented many...and this not only wins out in the column of informative talk...but also..we have some of the most respectable people to converse with...moderators..and members alike...on other boards..there\'s too much swearing..and vulgarity...and sometimes the avatars are tastless...(much like mine)..however..the black and gold site has all you could ask for..and more...great job guys...

Nice point sdx. That is one I forgot - this IS a classy forum, which is a benefit that is too important to go overlooked.

Also, nice to see all the \"new kids\" (well, dberce, I suppose you\'re not much of a new kid anymore) chime in on this one! Welcome to all of you (again), I have very much enjoyed talking with all of you.

Again, mad love to the people of B&G.

Thanks for the post JKool. I\'m a New Orleans native, but now live in Oregon, and there is absolutely nobody I can talk Saints with. I\'m glad I found this site, and i\'ts very refreshing to have such a common bond with folks.

Try being a New Orleans native, now living in San Antonio, between Houston and Dallas? And being an LSU fan to boot an hour away from UT. And having tickets to the Dallas-Saints game on Dec. 12th knowing you could get humiliated but still willing to wear your Saints egar anyway?

Yeah, me too. I\'m from downtown but live in Philadelphia now, who are (for good reason ) all about the Eagles. I live for the weeks when the Saints games lasts a few minutes longer than the Eagles game so I can see the end (which is actually quite often, as many penalties as we get, and as many incomplete passes we throw). The kids think my jerseys \"look cool,\" but that\'s about it.
