Why the Saints?
I have been a fan of American Football since the days when the Sunday afternoon game was broadcast live on channel 4 but have never picked a favourite team.

Why should I support your team?

For me it was my perception of the city from seeing live and let die as a 12 year old impressionable kid.

Also the fact that they had been a hopeless franchise for their entire existence up until then. My British support of the underdog prevented supporting anyone with a great history.

Why should you support them? I don't know. Each franchise is unique in its own way and all fan bases would claim to be the best.

I do think we'll be competitive this year, barring injuries. Last year our games were mostly close run shoot outs and if you like high scoring pass heavy offences then you'll love the Saints. If your a defensive minded fan, then they're not for you, although part of my optimism is that the D will improve.

Michael Thomas is an exciting young talent at WR who makes up for the loss of Cooks who will be replaced into this offence through the draft.

Good luck in your search for a team.

Why the Saints ? I wanted to support a team who’s city I had at least visited – and ideally seen my first NFL game there. Sadly all my visits to the States have been off season thus far . But a long time ago (before Katrina ) I stayed in New Orleans right on Bourbon Street. I loved it. I did the usual stuff -a trip on the Nachez Mississippi steamboat , a Voodoo walking tour around the town & graveyard , and a visit to a Southern plantation house. I drank a few Dark-and-Stormies , listened to some jazz, checked out the pole dance bars and finally took a trip around the Superdome. No-one was playing but I bought a team hat as a souvenir and I decided the least I could do was to be a Saints fan from that day on.
