Business Insider finds the New Orleans Saints enjoy highest level of devotion from local fans

Business Insider this month discovered, for its national audience, something unlikely to be surprising for Saints fans and anyone the New Orleans area: It found New Orleans to be the most supportive city of its NFL team.

"No city rallies more around its local NFL team than New Orleans with an average of 45.2 percent of all households in the local television market tuned into Saints games the first two weeks of the season," says an article from the business news outlet.

I'd love (or dread) to see how forum poster rank. We have a lot of whiny ass complainers and player haters on most every Saint site I visit.

And they always seem to find their way into Chat during the game... It used to be a fun place to chill on game-days...

say what? only 42% ? oh they aint counting the saints day parties or the bars. there are the other 58%

hell i got laughed at in Minnesota. sitting in the attic listening to short wave in the winter. keeping the beer next to the burner to keep it from freezing. First half was off shore in the gulf, the second half was out of san fran for some reason. took a couple of games till i figured that one out.

this is back in the day when a 14.7 modem and 486 DX was the bomb baby and the satellite dish took up half the yard and you had to hack the signals still
