Y'all were the victims as fans when Vick ran your asses through the ringer. As fans we do not deserve this punishment anymore than you did. Drop the holier than thou crap when it come to the fans. We have just as much influence as you over anything that goes on.
Are you so shallow that you can't see that?
I'm sorry, but your condescending attitude toward innocent fans gives me as little respect for you as for the assholes that brought this upon us.
The attitude you are displaying is becoming to run rampant in sports today. When I started going to games all fans from both teams were there for the entertainment. There was never any animosity. Although, thing have changed in the last 15 to 20 years. The other fan has become the enemy for some reason. I can't understand why, though. We are all the same. We all have families. We live, work, laugh, cry and eventually die. Our teams are a release. Yes, they become part of us, but we are NOT part of them. We have no say on what they do.
I am not meaning to attack you individually. It is an attack on society as a whole when it comes to sports.
Of course fans are going to become defensive when attacked over something totally out of their control. That is human nature.
I can discuss and even understand criticism of the team I love and support, but attacking the fans that are no different than you ...
... I'm sorry but my blood pressure is getting a little high. I need to chill out.
As I have stated before, for the most part the membership here are smart, friendly and entertaining. Good people.
Suck it up and take it, your team Royally fucked up, they are guilty they admitted guilt they cheated and got a SB out of it and along the way injured players because of it.
You deserve criticism because your still trying to defend them and deflect blame, still trying to make excuses. Don't, now is the time to shut up be humble and take your lumps for being a Saints fan.
If you Saints fans were actually sane you should be pissed at the team for doing this to you. Instead you guys are making excuses for your abusive team like a beaten wife and it is pathetic.
