Home fans don't sell all your tickets so the Saints have a home crowd. I swear we have one of the worst home crowds.... It's like an away game when we play at home. I don't see that around the league.
So you go to a lot of games around the league?
The Saints don't travel well. They haven't been historically good. There's only a hand full of teams that take over stadiums. We're actually one of them.
our home crowd sucks, thats the point. the 49ers built a large fanbase over the years from being a dynasty, but we dont take over stadiums like the Cowboys and Steelers fans do. the NFL began marketing itself globally in the 70's, and the teams who were great at the time were Steelers, Cowboys, and Raiders. thus, 3 of the largest national fanbases in the NFL.
Im not worried about the Saints fans taking over anything, but it was slightly concerning that during a 13-3 season we didnt pack the seats as well as a 13-3 fanbase should.
