If we had the privilege to play on the field, then we would be self motivated. As a fan, you support the team no matter what, but how loud you get is 100% controlled by the teams performance. It's just like food... If the product taste's bad, why would you pretend it doesn't? That's why I've always thought coaches should keep their mouths shut about what fans do unless they do something egregious. Like when they start throwing things on the field like idiots.

This week they played well though, and I thought the crowd reflected that. I'm perplexed by Payton's remarks.
Yeah, I agree ... give the fans something to cheer about & they will, et... and coaches generally don't comment on the fans unless it's something out of the ordinary, like you pointed out. I'm just wondering if what I'm seeing is a small chink or two in the Payton-armor ... it's been a tough go for SP the past few seasons ... it wears on ya', you know?. Just sayin'.

maybe he was on Live Chat and read the comments about the redzone play calling and then the 3rd & 4th down short yardage calls

We have a tough stretch of home games coming up. OF COURSE our coach is trying to ignite the fan base....

Re: Payton wants more from fans

I haven't gone to a game yet this year, but one of my friends told me the dome was eerily more quiet than normal. It doesn't surprise me though being how the team has performed. I wonder how the noise level is over at the Georgia dome....

Who knows? From what I understand, that place empties out probably before they even have a chance to set up the sound level meters, .

Re: Payton wants more from fans

Well, we were loud when we had to be but when the defense was giving up big chunks of yards on dump passes in the first half it's hard to stay loud. Also if coach wants to call someone out, how about calling out all the season ticket holders who sold their tickets to Green Bay fans to make some money. Since 1997 when I first got my season tickets, this was the largest visiting fan base I ever saw in the dome. Easily 10,000 Packer fans were in the dome Sunday night if not more.

The truth is, 99.9999999999999999999% of us have absolutely no idea what we are talking about.

We still have a chance this year so GET LOUD!
Jay,

I want to apologize for some of our members giving you a personal foul for the above.

You're right, we all think we know what we're talking about, but in the end, we're just fans. Probably better educated than most, and definitely more opinionated than most, and absolutely more inebriated than most.

Don't be a stranger and post more often.

Re: Payton wants more from fans

i have to agree. i missed the return years and the superbowl run. last time i was in the dome was last year and i have to say i was disappointed in the noise level much less the energy level at both games.

getting comfy with winning?
expecting to win year in and year out?
have saints fans have become complacent?
have the real fans been priced out od the dome?

Saints fans seem to do only the bare min. heck it was louder with less fans in the seats and a crapper team on the field back in day.

as a 13th player the 50% fans in the seats deserve a D grade for their performance.

The seahawks and chiefs fans get all the praise. those are open air stadiums also. fans should be ashamed.

the dome aint what it use to be
