I don't know about race issues, but I mostly avoid the Falcon forums to keep away from the man-on-man porn popups and discussion.

I have to disagree with you there buddy. Sure as Saint's fans we fly off gettin ****** at the coaches and players, but that's because we love our team, it's passion. We'd still meet our players at the airport if we were 6-6. This is nothing new.

I know that's why you spend alot of time on our board, for the intelligent discussion and passion, but I won't tell , cue Fat Joe and J.Holiday, your secret is safe with me;-)

Saints fans would never chant something like that, ever. That is just classless after what Ryan did for that team last year and now they want Vick back? Please!! If I was Ryan I would want out of there ASAP and I would just sit down after calling hike until it happened. Screw those sorry excuse for fans.

You have a point there. AB was not as central a figure to his team as MV was to his in Atlanta. I remember all the talk about MV being the "human highlight reel" (and yes, as a Saints fan I used to kinda gag a little whenever I heard it) and he was undoubtedly an exciting player to watch.

However, I'm not sure you understand the psyches of Saints fans. Five thousand people out there to greet them after their win over the 'Skins was impressive--but what's more impressive is that I don't think that number would've been significantly smaller had they lost that game and become NFC South champions by default. The only thing that would've changed are the numbers on the signs people made.

I've said before that it's hard to draw parallels between the Atlanta Falcons--one pro sports team among many in a large city composed of transplants--and the New Orleans Saints, which were for many years our only team in a city that has one of the highest populations of native-born citizens of any in the country. Just about everyone in the city has taken in Saints football with their mothers' milk; if you're a New Orleanian, you don't "decide" to be a Saints fan any more than you "decide" you breathe air.

VERY VERY TRUE...I live in ATL and my co-worker does not like Matt Ryan because she liked having a black QB, she actually wants DJ Shockley to play. (we are both black by the way) and Vick is like anybody black dude you meet on the streets, he came from the bottom like alot of us and its like seeing someone you can relate to out there on the big stage and people loved him. the "other side" probably hated his cornrolls, tattoes and pocket awareness (or lack there of) thought he was to much flash and not enough "effiecency" at the QB Position. and I'm sure some on the other side (like some on the black side) simply wanted to see one of there own at the QB position. I mean QB for the longest time was a position we were supposedly to dumb to play, we could be anything else BUT the QB, and some still believe that and no matter what we do, it aint done like a white QB does it and lets face it, thats what we are all used to. I'm sure there some black folk out there who are glad to have Matt Ryan because now the passing game is working and if you know footbal, you can see it, thats why I agree wit them. the Falcons actually are more effecient with a prototypical passing QB.


Point is, you know some decisions are based on race and some on football. but you really cant say because if a white guy likes the team with out vick because of the improved passing game, some might call him racist, when in fact he has a point...but on the same hand a white guy can say the falcons are better with without vick because of the improved passing game he could really mean a "white QB", and same with blacks who rather have Vick because he is black in a black city they want a black QB....opinions not nessasarily based on football on both sides.

Real fans need to give AB some credit, He spoked out about the Saints plans to stay in Texas when we were getting alot of bull from the people in the front office. Don't believe me go back and find the clipping.

Wish we could all just base football decisions on football rather than on a guy's genetic background and melanin content. My heroes wear black and gold, but some of them are tall and some short, some big and some small, some black and some white. The common thread is their Saints-ness, not their phenotype. To me that's like saying I would prefer a QB with brown eyes instead of Drew Brees and his blue eyes because I want a QB who is "more like me."

Well, actually it'd be impossible for me to find a QB who looks "more like me" because I'm 5'2" and female. I am closer to the size of the football than I am to the size of the average football player and no one would ever want me to take the field.

But I do see what you're saying and there've been players I gravitated to for whatever reason (there's a QB out there right now who has my real last name, for instance, and I love that guy!), players I really wanted to succeed because I felt an affinity for them. I can't understand wanting that player in at the cost of the team, though, much less cheering for that player if he faces off against MY team.

That QB who shares my name? He played against the Saints and I didn't dream of rooting for him to have a good day; I wanted him dazed and confused as my Saints turned him upside down and shook him until all the loose change fell out of his pockets. NOW I like him...but not that day. Not when he's in our house.

First the real housewives of Atlanta gives all other Atlanta housewives a bad name and now these "we want Vick" fans just gave all Falcon fans an even worse name than they had before.

Perhaps I may have it wrong, but,....

Other fan bases totally missed the point of the paper bags. people who wore the paper bags wore them because they were too embarrassed to be seen at the game, but they could not bare the thought of supporting their beloved Saints. They were faced with two choices; 1. Not show up at all or 2. show up with paperbag to do what fans supposed to do; support their team through thick and thin!

Personally, I would never wear a bag on my head, but i can certainly understand the frustration of the fans that did.

GAH.... I've been working overtime trying to get those fools off our board but unless they violate the MB rules we've just got to put up with them. You guys have no idea what chaos Vick left us in 06' and for some reason its feels like a microcosim of all thats been brought back to us for a week. Hopefully it'll calm down by Wednesday.

I look at it the exact opposite. If i was a player i would rather have a guy just not come to the game if he is just going to do that. I mean you have to really go out of your way to show up sit down and wear a paper bag and make signs saying "Aints" on them. I would just say dont freakin come if your going to talk trash to me.

Now if i was the owner i might possibly look at it like " i will take any fan i can get as long as the ticket sells" but as a fan i can't look at it that way.
First, you truly dont understand New Orleanians. We have a sense of humor like none other. So the paper bag thing, sometimes the truth hurts but in a funny kind of way.
Second, The Saints sold out the dome more times in losing seasons than the Clowns in winning seasons
Finally, yall are Atlanta fans.....What in the hell do yall know about football and passion anyway? Yall have the WORST fan base in all of sports. Atl didnt sell out Braves games even when they were in the playoffs, falcons have fair weather fans (or fans of opposing teams dog fighting qb), your bball team couldnt pack Chalmette High's gym, and I dont even know if its worth mentioning that yall have a hockey team.
