to get away from all this b.s. i want to know.........

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I am a member of that club....and, I think you have to have experienced it all to know what ssmitty is talking about. It is no knock on anyone else, it\'s just a fact. It doesn\'t make us any better ...

I am a member of that club....and, I think you have to have experienced it all to know what ssmitty is talking about. It is no knock on anyone else, it\'s just a fact. It doesn\'t make us any better person than anyone else, however, it does cause us to have a different perspective, and, I can\'t speak for anyone else, but it causes me to be as skeptical as I am. With all that pessimism and negativity, you can assure yourself that if I was presented with the dilemna of having to choose between game 7 of the World Series or a Saints/Bengals game, it\'s gonna be a no-brainer....I\'m watching the Saints.

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

I think I know what you guys are getting at, but it is hard to take this,

it\'s time to quiet the know it alls, and the so call diehards..........really? how could you know?
as bringing people together as fans.

I\'m with 1313 on how it sounds. I suppose those of us who are too young to have seen it all shouldn\'t say anything around here?

Now, I\'m CERTAIN that that is not how this was intended, but that is how it sounded.

I certainly grant that those of us who are younger are LUCKY to not have suffered as long. Let\'s all just all be there together when we get that Super Bowl!

hey man, not trying to start anything, but just becuase im younger than most of the members here, does that mean i care LESS about the Saints? I dont think you can measure a fan by their age. Just because I\'m half the age of some members doesnt mean i dont bleed black and gold. That\'s crap if thats the case you trying to start.......
I agree...i am only 26 but i kick my dog just as hard when the saints lose as the next guy. i guarantee you i understand coverages and blocking schemes more than most fans!

i wasn\'t at those games but watched them on the toob. i had all the saints football cards before the first kickoff. they all had pics with the uni\'s of the teams they were selected from.

i have no beef with the veracity of any other fan no matter what their age. sure, i can recite more history, recall the rumble of tulane stadium, and laugh remembering chuck muncie interviews (wasn\'t he functionally illerate?). any fan though, whether from youth or by decision, i respect. heck, if someone decided to be a saints fan as an adult knowing their history that might be a higher calling than me being a lifer. i have known nothing else, have been comitted, and am in it for the long haul- too far to turn back now. but to choose them over another team, specifically if you do not have regional allegiance, phew, i gotta respect that.

so maybe give any oldtimers that lived thru the mecom era some props cuz that was a different nfl and a perpetual purgatory to live thru. enjoy some of the reminicing and tales of yore. understand that cynicism isn\'t pessimism. otherwise plant your roots, take a stand, and be ready for a hurricane season now n then.

sorry, but us oldtimers need our rest.....
49 is\'nt that old, is it joe?
seems i\'ve stirred a few young ums.........
in my original post i merely asked for a show of hands as to who has seen it all. did not expect to see or offend younger ones. but, everyone reads and interprets a post differently. as to my response to joe i can certainly see why some may take offense as to my questioning, but that response was to joe and joe alone. just me letting off some steam to another old timer out loud. and while crow is best served warm, i will apologize to the youth on board who took offense for my response to joe.........i never questioned your heart or faith, only if you had seen it all.......those were the worst and best of times and forgive me for taking a walk down memory lane. hope this clears up my original post........smitty

i can remember when the dome was fairly new and of course the saints were\'nt doing well....
i had 4 extra tickets which you could\'nt give away, much less sell......i left them under the wiper blade in clear view thinking someone would use em.....after the game, (we lost) upon arriving at my truck, the windshield was full of tickets....
that was cold man..........but priceless too...........wish i had a camera at the time..............smitty

The story about the tickets is priceless ssmitty!

One thing we youth do appreciate is the stories from the old days. One thing I bet: any one of us \"young pups\" would like to have some stories like that.

the worst of times was sitting next to the bagheads....
all my friends were wearing em, and there are no greater fans then they are.......it was out of frustration, (dam you buddy d. for starting that) but, i just could\'nt do it..........besides, it was too dam hard to drink the beer.............i have friends ranging in age from 16-plus 90 back there (i am in dallas right now) each a diehard in their own right as i am..........we played baseball for over 20 yrs every sunday when i was there, and would catch the saints game if they were playing at the dome......hell, they are still playing, 52 weeks a yr....
no matter who showed up, no matter how many showed up, you could play...........and man, when there are 30 plus in the outfield, it\'s hard to get a hit, believe me.....even if you did not have a few dollars to drink all the beer you wanted while you played, you could still drink for free.....
you don\'t know how displaced you actually feel until you\'re in another town...........til you don\'t have the friendlyness that n.o. provides.........(aside from the bullets) but the good thing is, you can go home again.......things don\'t change and i can pick up where i left off. i can show up at anyones house and have a beer in my hand with food on the table or bbq going just like i never left........be thankful for what you have.......and b&b, i do not need to hear you are displaced, i know............just another story.................smitty
