They can suck more than that.... but come to think of it, I wish some past Saints players found offense to it and would have never played for us.

Re: Is the flour De Lis Offensive.

Oh you've got to be kidding me. I thought this was going to be a joke when I clicked on it. I don't know how anything could surprise me anymore, but this managed to.

Get this through your self-pitying heads, people. Just because some symbol or some phrase, or some tool or WHATEVER may have been used, or meant, for something bad a couple centuries ago doesn't mean it is some universally evil thing.

Why don't we just get rid of prisons so all the people who were falsely imprisoned in the past won't have to be reminded... Even though they're not alive anymore. We sure wouldn't want their ancestors to be offended either. This is ridiculous.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Is the flour De Lis Offensive.

anything around longer than 50 years has a tainted past. extremist running a muck

Warning if the national media starts beating the drum it is all but a done deal.

Here you go; straight from Wikipedia:

The fleur-de-lis or fleur-de-lys (plural: fleurs-de-lis)[pron 1] is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means "flower", and lis means "lily") or iris that is used as a decorative design or symbol. It may be "at one and the same time, religious, political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic", especially in French heraldry.[4]
EDIT: I just noticed Fleur was misspelled

Might as well haul down Old Glory; she was flying over America during slavery times a helluva lot longer than the Stars & Bars!

Next we will have to get rid of the Constitution and Bill of Rights because they were written by white slaves owners!

The camel has officially gotten its nose under the tent!
