You missed an important one -- Archie\'s first game as a Saint -- ran a td around the left end from the 2 yard line against the rams to win it on the last play. But yeah -- I was at those games -- remember the game after the lions when they were selling this 45 record -- on one side was the official voicecast of the play -- on the other song a hokie song about Tom, his half foot etc. The good old days at Tulane stadium --

Okay -- whether he got in or not they gave him the TD and we won -- all in all a day to remember for Saints fans --- first game of the season -- our new QB leads them to victory -- same ol saints season --

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.
bull...that\'s like saying-well I was a braves fan from the begginning of the Mrphy era and so I\'\' a better fan than you cause you weren\'t born untill close to the end-but we still saw the braves play before they become america\'s team...

I\'ve watched the saints my whole life-chose the saints over the crackboys even...and I\"m not even from LA...I picked them for my own reasons-not some bandwagon or because they are the hometown team..

you wanna look for how much you bleed--look at teh people who root for the saints even though they\'ve got better choices and aren\'t from the area...

or better yet-let\'s all just be fans and bring our own experiences in...and stop trying to get into a contest. I can watch Classic games and see the old plays..and talk to the old timers and hear about the old days....and that makes me or my kids or grandkids or whoever just as much as a fan as those people who saw archie manning play...or vince lombardi or whatever.

I am not sure that the intent of those old timers (cetainly not me) posting was to say we are better fans -- matter of fact I would not agree with that statement at all. Because someone was not born when the Saints frustration originally began doesn\'t meant they have not experienced the same pain we have -- just not as many years -- And just because they have been around for so many years does not mean they are die hard fans -- For myself -- I look at the saint games of years ago as memories of me and my dad going to the game -- this was our time together -- While I agree with the intent of your post I do think you were a little harsh in your response

AAAHHHGGGHHHH My virgin eyes!!! what happened to the auto-censor???

smitty\'s so old he\'s still carrying the plague.

We used to stomp our feet in the top level of Tulane stadium to make a thunder sound when the ball was near the endzone. I think that sound is reverberating to (hopefully) drown out this thread.
