Fuck The NFL

As a football team, I don't give a flying fuck one way or the other about the New Orleans Saints. They suck, they've pretty much always sucked, and they will probably continue to suck well into the future.
But that's neither here nor there.

The point of this post is the stupidity and marketing of the NFL regarding the New Orleans Saints.
During - or at least in the beginning of every gawd-damn game held at the Superdome, the sportscasters are continually amazed at the resilience of New Orleans and the Saints, and how they were able to recover from the awful tragedies that befell the state of Louisiana which went by the names of Katrina and Rita. They harp about how the city was able to pick themselves up, get back on their feet and rebuild the city and the Superdome. Give me a fucking break. The greedy bastards of the NFL wanted to keep making their money from the football games, and the only way to do that was to get the stadium rebuilt. They don't give a fuck about the rest of the city as long as they can get people in the doors of the stadium.

I'm guessing the people from that area still living in trailers, motels, cars, tents, whatever, and the people who were forced to abandon their lives and move out of state either sit there and cringe at the yammering idiocy of those people, or they turn the teevee off before they're tempted to kick the living shit out of the set.

As for me, I will be avoiding any future Saints games. At least until I know I won't have to be subjected to their bullshit, phony 'praise' for the 'wonderful' people of that 'wonderful' city.

yep the hurricaine references are pretty old now, mind you, there are still some bits of NOLA struggling to come back, it would be nice for the NFL to contribute a bit, eh? Who am I to say whos a bad team and who is not, I only watch it because of the tight pants.
