I'm disappointed. Its freaking week 2!
Totally agree. I NEVER miss watching a game. Never have when it was even remotely possible. I don't give a crap what our record is, what others think about MY team or what ever else is going on. I am watching MY Saints.

Never torture, nor is the management so awful that wearing a bag again in protest is warranted.

I watch games in spite of my disappointment, but if something comes up and I can't watch the games, I don't sweat it near as much anymore. I don't see the Saints pushing their lives to the side to support me or anyone I know.

Yeah I know, that sounded really depressing. I don't think of it as depressing. It's just reality, to me. Gotta keep it in some kind of perspective, or I'll go insane watching them lose.
There's the difference. It has never been a chore for me to watch the Saints. Ever. Win or lose it is always a pleasure being able to watch. For so many years (longer than many of you have been alive) I wasn't able to have TV access. In fact, if there is an NFL game on any day or any time I'm watching. No where near being a chore. It is my entertainment.

Ab****insolutely, hagan. Nothing will keep me from watching MY Saints play.

Okay, this could be an opportunity for the Saints; bigger than Saints Killer Olsen being out...

I don't celebrate injuries, but its about time other teams experience what we've had an excessive amount of the last few years.

Now wake me when another team loses their entire secondary by week 3.

Football IS entertainment, for all of us, 'Guido. And as such, there ARE more important things. If you don't realize that by now, you're in too deep, friend.

I'm not talking about quitting as a fan (though I will stop watching them if they join in on this protesting crap). But there are times when games get in the way of other things, and you have to push things to the side to watch the game. I feel less and less inclined to do that. I want the Saints to win badly, but whether they win or lose, they don't help me with anything. The season ends, and it's like it never happened, until the next season comes along.

Also losing feels a lot worse than winning feels good, in my experience. Though I subject myself to it anyway, I'm not afraid to walk away if I can see it's just making me too aggravated. It has nothing to do with not caring about the team, and everything to do with self-restraint. Some of us are a lot more competitive, and we don't find joy in watching a team lose, and so our tempers flare up.

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