Alaska I had the near exact experience; one of my customers 'rewarded' me with tickets for my daughter and I...

Started really cool pre-game because many of the Saintsations that walked about schlepping calendars recognized my daughter as a standout from a cheer/dance camp...

Many of the Saints 'Club patrons' became annoyed with the Saintsations congregation about my girl even though it was pre-game & not during the game...

Then, once the game got started, we got cranked up on some big plays but the rest of that Club section quickly gave us the big judgmental church ladies 'shhooosh'...

Totally ruined it for me as it was my girl's first game in the Dome...

So blame Saints Marketing because the traditional Saints fans are segregated to the rafters of the Dome...

That happens in a lot of stadiums, "the elite proper fans"
who are a few dollars short of a sky box.

The team is made of professionals who get paid a lot to play a game they love. Waning fan support should only concern them if they're worried about a job for not tackling, catching or fumbling the ball!

My dad and family are original season ticket holders. As people have passed on they combined their seats into the mega row on the 50 yard line lower deck. My brother-in-law manages the whole thing (good for him because I did it for two seasons and it's a pain in the azz to manage).

I can tell you with certainty that a cabal of "blue bloods", old farts, and perfect people occupy that space. When I went to the preseason game this year I laughed because some of the same people were sitting in the same seats - just 25 or 30 years later.

Alaska is right, because I know, we own real estate down in the lower deck. It can be NO FUN whatsoever. I've had season tickets of my own throughout the dome and by far lower terrace (and I mean LOWER) in the end zone was the most fun I ever had as a Saints fan.

In reality we can do very little to either help or hurt. Showing up on gameday and being loud is the biggest factor.

I don't know what it is about the "Swell's"; it's like they don't know what you are supposed to do during a game. Now, I'm not for the drunk rude overly obnoxious guy/gal that is spilling beer on me and talking about everything BUT the game (with the occasional, "WOOOO WHO DAT BABY!!"). But if you want to sit in tranquil peace and quiet, GO HOME and watch it from your couch.

Re: Are Saints losing because of us

I have noticed a lack of support since 09 in fan support, coverage of the team by reporters as well as fans at the training camp practices and the noise levels at the dome. Back in the day and I mean since day 1 of the Saints, our stadiums used to ROCK! We were known as the loudest stadium and fans in the league. We used to get penalized when I was a season ticket holder for being too loud. Now, it seems that we have a lot of fans that rag on others as not being true fans etc. but at the games, our current fans get taken out of the game rather easily and that's even when we get a lead and now we've been surpassed by Seattle?? How can an outdoor stadium be louder than an enclosed Dome? I do think our team notices this. Do we still turn out in the thousands after a game like we did back in 09? No. Do we still turn out in the thousands after a road game win or lose like we did? No but these new fans are better than the old fans. Yeah right..

In all seriousness, thy post doth express the fact that our cheering doth indeed aid our brethren on the field of battle.
