Will you root for the L.A. Saints?

I'm not sure what my reaction will be. Back before FA a team was more than an organization, it was certain players. Now, with players changing teams all the time it's harder to get that same connection.

That being said, I think I'd probably give them a shot. The difficulty will be in watching the games since they wont be local. I'm sure here (Monroe, LA) we'll get the Cowgirls instead.

If I couldn't follow the LA team, then I'm thinking Houston or Tennessee (sure would have been easier if Memphis would have gotten them).

When all else fails, I'll probably then just watch nothing but NASCAR on sundays and be fine with it.

Would I root for them...probably not. I think I quit rooting a few years back. I would. however, watch with interest when I got a chance. That\'s pretty much the way it is for me now, being that at this particular time I do not live in the NO area, anyway.

I have a funny feeling about this, though. It just so happens that I was living in the LA area when they lost both of their teams. I moved away about 2 1/2 years ago, and now they are looking at possibly getting a team back there. What\'s funny about it is that I am being considered for a position that would bring me back to the Gulf Coast. If I do in fact get that job, I would not be surprised if the Saints left for LA...knowing my luck. If I don\'t get it, then they will probably stay.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

So you and your luck are the catalyst for all this move talk huh LB? I\'d still try to support them, though initially it may be very, very hard, and I may end up supporting another team before I got around to it. I haven\'t lived in NO for about 7 years, but it would be extremely difficult to watch the Saints leave. But I guess they say everyone else does, why not us?

NO WAY EVER!
They would be my most despised team on the planet.
I\'d hate them with every fiber of my being.
Might be the only team I actually pull for players to get injuries.
I\'d even throw rocks at the Saintsations

I couldn\'t possibly watch the saints win in another city after I have suffered for so long. No - I would not root for the Saints -- I would only watch the NFL games I bet on. And as long as Benson owned the team I would be rooting for them to get blownj out of every game -- I would want them to suck so badly that the stands were totally empty --

ScottyRo - I just moved to Austin from Monroe in June. I was one of the State Farmers. I have tried to make myself like the Texans more and more. Especially since they have Dominick Davis. Austin is a great place and pre-dominantly Dallas fans. I just can\'t bring myself to root for the Cowboys. I would probably keep up with the Saints a year or so while I make the Texans transition. Hard to say. I would definitly miss them though.

Yeah, that was me. I didn\'t get the chance to get by there yet. With the move, finding a house, and school, it was impossible. I will be there next season drinking them on win or lose though. I have already told the wife find a hobby for sundays. I may go hang out for part of the draft too.

Cool. I heard you gotta get there early on Sundays though cause there is a surprising number of Saints fans in Austin, at least you would think so by how packed the place gets. I wonder if they would close down if the team moved to LA, or change their decor.
