The New Orleans Saints will introduce a revamped talent lineup for the team’s 2019 preseason television broadcasts.

A three-game package will be featured on WVUE-FOX 8, also being carried on its parent company Gray Communications’ regional affiliates in six states. Joel Meyers will handle play-by-play, former Saints tackle Jon Stinchcomb and former Black and Gold linebacker Jonathan Vilma will serve as color analysts and Meghan Payton will be the sideline reporter on the broadcasts.

Since WVUE-FOX 8/Gray Communications became the team’s preseason broadcast partner in 2015, the preseason broadcast ratings have dominated both the local market and for preseason games in NFL markets. In 2018, the 30.7 rating for Saints preseason games, was easily the highest figure in an NFL market, outdistancing Buffalo (22.3). The rating also surpassed the local rating for LII in New Orleans (26.2).

"I cannot wait to see you guys out there," Brees said in the Facebook video announcement. "To see the videos, to see the excitement and see everything that we’re going to be bringing to Youngsville Sports Complex through Football 'N' America. See you soon!"

Boycott Bowl, New Orleans’ anti-Super Bowl concert, is sold out

By Doug MacCash, NOLA.com | Times-Picayune

The Boycott Bowl, the Super Bowl protest concert on Sunday (Feb. 3), has sold out, according to event co-founder Travis Laurendine. He said more than 3,000 Who Dats have purchased general admission and VIP tickets to the concert on Fulton Street. Though Laurendine hopes to find more space by showtime, at this moment the event has reached capacity.

The NFL-alternative concert, which was founded by Laurendine, Brandon Rizzuto, and “Kango Slimm” Williams, was inspired, of course, by the Saints’ illegitimate loss during THE GAME THAT MUST NOT BE MENTIONED on Jan. 20. ...

In New Orleans, Sunday (Feb. 3), will be a day of block parties, second-lines and concerts with neighborhood bars festooned in black and gold as they host New Orleans Saints festivities to celebrate the hometown team.

Everywhere else? It’s just Super Bowl Sunday.

Well before New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees encouraged the team’s fans to take the high road, they were doing just that.

In response to what sports columnist Jeff Duncan called “one of the most egregious non-calls in NFL history,” referring to the lack of a pass-interference penalty in the Jan. 20 NFC Championship game that allowed the Los Angeles Rams to make a comeback and win, New Orleans fans began planning parties.

There is no formal agency pulling this city together. New Orleanians just grabbed an oar and got this city moving in a positive direction.

Chef Amy Cyrex Sins planned the “Anti-LIE Bowl Party- #pettynola” party at Dat Dog, which spread to the full 3300 block of Magazine; the Rev. Bill Miller, rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Covington announced a “Black and Gold and Yellow Flag Sunday” Super Bowl Sunday service; and public relations professional Kim Bergeron, began raising money to host the Black and Gold Second-line Parade in the French Quarter. ...

How properly to boycott Super Bowl LIE, from a ratings standpoint

1548809175585.png

By Mike Scott, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

Nearly two weeks later, New Orleans is still reeling from the super scam that robbed the Saints of their rightful place in Super Bowl LIII, which we've since dubbed Super Bowl LIE. In fact, a grass-roots "Boycott Bowl" movement continues to build, with parties of protest scheduled around the city so locals can enjoy not watching the big game together.

After all, the referees cost the Saints a title shot by looking the other way when the Rams' Nickell Robey-Coleman illegally cleaned Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis' clock during the closing minutes of the NFC Championship Game. It only makes sense for Saints fans to respond in kind by looking the other way on Super Bowl Sunday.

It's worth noting, however, that there's a right way and a wrong way to boycott the Super Bowl if you want to send the loudest, clearest message to the NFL league offices. ...

The Kingpin Bar, at 1307 Lyons St., will be the starting point for a Who Dat second-line parade on Sunday (Feb. 3), meant to mock the Super Bowl. According to Kingpin co-owner Steve Watson, the parade will gather at the bar at 4 p.m. and begin rambling at 4:30 p.m.

The route, Watson says, is generally toward Magazine Street or “wherever the mood takes us.” Paraders are invited to bring along ticket stubs and other mementoes from THE GAME THAT MUST NOT BE MENTIONED, which took place in the Super Dome on Jan. 20. At the conclusion of the procession, the symbols of NFL betrayal will be buried.

The unnamed parade (we like “The Bury The Bowl Parade”) will be led by the Big Fun Brass Band. Of course, the Kingpin will not aid in the broadcast of Super Bowl 2019. ...

Statement from Saints Owner Gayle Benson

By NewOrleansSaints.com

Yesterday’s result is still difficult to accept for all of us. I am thoroughly disappointed by the events that led to the outcome of yesterday’s game. Getting to the Super Bowl is incredibly difficult to do and takes such an unbelievable commitment from a team and support from its fans. No team should ever be denied the opportunity to reach the title game (or simply win a game) based on the actions, or inactions, of those charged with creating a fair and equitable playing field. As is clear to all who watched the game, it is undeniable that our team and fans were unfairly deprived of that opportunity yesterday. I have been in touch with the NFL regarding yesterday’s events and will aggressively pursue changes in NFL policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again. It is a disservice to our coaches, players, employees and, most importantly, the fans who make our game possible. The NFL must always commit to providing the most basic of expectations - fairness and integrity.

Our entire team is humbled and grateful for the support shown by our fans over the course of the season. It has become common for teams to proclaim that they have the “best fans in the NFL”. I do not believe there is any debate, however, that we truly have the most inspiring, committed and passionate fans in all of...
