Prior to the SuperBowl this past Sunday it was obvious why so many were wanting to distance themselves from all the turmoil of the Championship games and the disgust of how the league handled it all. My biggest concern after we got hosed is that I worried about how the future would affect the amazing fans of the Who Dat! Nation. Who of us would we keep? Who would we lose forever? :covri:

But it seems that some feelings and temperament changed a bit after the SuperBowl ended... and perhaps because of the WAY it ended. I began to feel like we would come through this hosing with limited (though reasonable) negativity about what happens from here. So this poll (or 'pole') seems like a good time to see where some of us stand right now. I assume that feelings are still a bit raw and they are very likely to change as time marches on. But this seems like a good time to see where we are trending.

Actually this is ring #4 we missed out on:

2011 postseason
2017 postseason
2018 postseason

:mad: :rant:

Also: The season Drew Brees had in 2011 was just S-I-C-K!!!!!

<> He was rated #2 (of all players in the NFL) going into the 2012 (Bountygate --minus Sean Payton fiasco) season.
<> He should have been the CLEAR CHOICE for MVP in 2011.

You made me cry 😢...thinking of how one day we won’t have his greatness gracing our field.

Honestly I sort of look it as constellation prize. Even though I boycotted anything Super Bowl that week, I seriously paid a lot of attention to the outcome. Everything I wanted to happen or not happen did. I seriously felt a little satisfaction seeing the Rams struggled and NFL having a horrible Super Bowl.

I don’t care. The outcome of our game didn’t effect how I view the league. It sucked, but we have to move on.

That being said I guess I just don’t let football effect me the way it used to. I’m more concerned about real life issues that effect real people like policy in our country. I’ve learned to enjoy watching talented people play for all teams, not just our Saints.

Didn’t care too much about the Super Bowl

It was like watching the condemned of a murder against one of your family members, get electrocuted. While it does not bring back the family member, it does allow a little closure.

I laughed myself silly when I checked the score near the end of the game (didn't watch of course).

It was therapeutic for me and satisfying to see the Rams not only got beat but they couldn't even get into the end zone all game.
😁👍

The outcome proved that they didn't deserve to be there and Brady getting his 6th ring dominated the sports news while the Shams fell back into being irrelevant again. Sham fans went back in hiding and that team will implode over the offseason and into the future so it's about as good as it can be considering the egregious wrongdoing that occurred.

Oh there was a game in February?
It's like wrestling. If it didn't happen on tv, it didn't happen and it sure as h*** didn't 'happen' on any tv in my house.
I was already preparing myself for the CBA contract expiring in '20 and the possibility of a lockout but my permanent lockout has already begun.

Three weeks removed, anger has been replaced by cynicism. My level of distrust in the NFL has never been greater.

The season-long Rams narrative. The (non) call. The crew bias and lack of review. The lack of immediate follow-up by the league. And of course, the mendacious, character-free actions of someone who pathologically boasts about integrity.

Perhaps most disheartening is the knowledge that everything can be stolen at the final moment. Any team. Any time.

Voted tacoes because I love them almost as much as I love the Saints. But the "sport" of pro football has now (for me) crossed over to entertainment. I trust the integrity of BattleBots more than the NFL.

So for me, it's detachment. My heart is thankful that after a half-century of Sunday palpitations it can rest easy when my team plays. And it's also broken because Saints football has been unfairly, unjustly ruined.
I agree with all of this. Especially the last paragraph about detachment from the NFL, and Saints football being ruined for me for no reason.

I know myself too well to think that at some point next season, I’m not gonna jump off the couch and scream at the TV about some stupid call/no-call during a Saints game. But then I’ll remember the Champoinship game... and remember it doesn’t matter.

didn't watch but was getting texts all night, had to go to gym to work off the stress, ended up seing the last 2 minutes. made me sick seeing such an abysmal performance, made me sick knowing Brees would have beat Brady, made me sick I would have cashed a 15k ticket, makes me sick still.
