The Saints got out played and out coached and I'm dissapointed in their crying about the game. But the biggest thing that bothers me about Saints fans is that after Katrina the low lifes that live there totally destroyed that stadium and us tax payers spent almost $100 million to fix it up, and repair their downtown so they could party and we never heard even a thank you from them. They got their stadium and town fixed so they could have Mardi Gras but several years later they still didn't have half of their schools up and running yet. When we had the earthquake in 1989 we didn't get tax payers bailout to fix our stadium or town, and they didn't give any of us mobile homes to live in for years for free, and we didn't get bail out credit cards from anybody. So they should be happy with what they got in this world instead of being a bunch a of cry babies.
Ok guy's..I can't take it anymore. Before I start, some folks here already know I came and posted my congrats. I have tried to explain that if you go to saintsreport, you are dealing with ignorant children who don't know crap. There may be a few intelligent folks there but you can probably count them on one hand.
Here goes, can we please leave Katrina out of this??? Why do people keep feeling it necessary to bring this up? I am sorry you didn't get a bail out credit card or a formaldehyde trailer to live in. We are talking almost 20 years difference between the earthquake and katrina. A lot changes in 20 years.
This is ya'lls forum and are free to say whatever you want, I can respect that. Just know that when you talk about Katrina, you talk about a person like me. I am 38 and lived here my entire life. I am a US Navy Veteran served in the first Gulf War. I evacuated 5 days before Katrina to Texas. When we were allowed back in, everything I knew my entire life was almost gone. All the places I went to my entire life was ruined. We had no power for weeks. I had no job, place was destroyed. It was a nightmare that would not end. I am going to leave it at this because just typing this brings back some serious pain.
I would like to think things have changed a lot in our country since 1989. If for some unimaginable thing like an earthquake would ruin your life I for one know I would do whatever I could to help. Don't lump a few morons with all the good people. Don't think the idiots you seen on TV stealing tv's and dvd players, is what this city is filled with. I can guarantee that the graciousness that the people in N.O. got will never be forgotten. I know I won't.
Im sorry If I have hijacked the thread. It's not just on all the 9ers forums that have talk like this, it's everywhere. If I am out of place with this just let me know and I won't come back. That game was awesome and though we didn't pull off a miracle, the better team won. I see in your players what we had in 2009. You can see the desire in your teams eye's. Sadly, the only part of our team with the no quit attitude is the offense. It takes a whole team to win a ring. You guy's keep playing that kind of ball, you will achieve your mission.
