Statistically Saints fans are the best
 
In the times picayune statistics were given which shows the strong fan base of the Saints -- we should all be proud of our support ---

Based on statistics from 1967 through 2004, the Saints lead the NFL in average fans per win, a ranking that considers a team's on-field performance and its attendance history. The rankings do not include the expansion Houston Texans, whose three seasons are not enough to be statistically significant.
The Saints lead the NFL with an average of 76,088 fans per win, derived by dividing the team's all-time attendance of 17,880,875 by its 235 total wins. Cleveland is second at 75,721 fans per win. Detroit is third. None of those teams has ever reached a Super Bowl, but Cleveland and Detroit have played in conference championship games.

Consider these statistics, all measuring NFL teams since the Saints' inaugural season:
-- Even when victories are not calculated into attendance history, the Saints rank 10th in the league in overall regular-season attendance, with a total of 17,610,161, despite playing in the league's fifth-smallest market.
That figure ranks higher than several teams from much larger markets, all with more successful histories. Buffalo, at No. 6 with attendance of 18,288,741, is the only other small-market team in the top 10. The Bills also played in four consecutive Super Bowls.
-- The Saints' per-game attendance average of 60,935 ranks 13th, ahead of traditional powerhouses New England, Pittsburgh, Oakland, Minnesota, Green Bay, Washington and San Francisco. Those teams have combined for 35 Super Bowl appearances and 22 championships.

:shock: Holy smokes... that's pretty surprising. It also kind of makes you wonder where the heck is all that money.

What money? There's no money. Haven't you heard? Tom Benson is BROKE!

Tom Benson has something that's broke (like his backbone) but he's not broke, it's all a conspiracy.

Nuh-uh Cherry, he said so himself, he can't make any money with the Saints. Since we all know that Tom Benson would never lie b/c all he's really concerned about is staying in New Orleans, like he said, that must mean he's broke.
