Props to SaintSarah for the idea. It deserved its own thread, I think. I'll compile the rules here so that we may all abide, whether I agree or not. I may change some formatting and arrange the rules in proper order. With no further ado:

I do want to understand the "Real Fan" checklist.


Since this started the conversation, I'll put it first to help start you out.

1. Not sit in the Club Level or in a Suite for games.
All Saints fans be aware. Violations of the following rules will result in revocation of your fan cards and placement in "bandwagon" status.

UPDATE!!!1!!!11!! *_deuce_* has made us a wallpaper so that we can all have the list close at hand...thanks to *_deuce_* for helping us all be better fans! Wallpaper!

1. Not sit in the Club Level of the Superdome for games.
2. Always, always, always despise the Falcons.
3. Never, ever tell someone to sit down in the Dome.
4. Do not drink Corona or margaritas.
5. Never boo your own team.
6. If you must sell your tickets, NEVER sell them to fans of opposing teams.
7. Stand up.
8. Get crunk.
9. Who Dat chant when in enemy territory.
10. Don't wear LSU gear, you are attending a Saints game for goodness sakes.
11. Know a little pre-Super-Bowl Saints history.
12. Do not suggest that the Saints sign long-retired players with the idea that they can make some contribution, or make ridiculous grandiose statements about their value.
13. Have conflicting feelings about Bobby Hebert.
14. Floss after eating ribs at a tailgate :)shrug:)
15. Name your first son after a member of the Saints organization.
16. You will be hoarse the morning after a home game. Watching at home is no excuse.
17. Even if you're half way around the world, it's 4am and all you have is the radio broadcast of the Saints game, you stay up and listen and imagine the rest.
18. Real Fans don't tailgate before a game in their Mini-Suvs with the A/C on, ala Bucs fan.
19. If you're going to complain about the team or players, just stay home.
20. Do not stay home.
21. Don't be a grammar nazi on your own teams football forum. (grumble)
22. You must have a pet named after a Saints player/mascot. No pets = not a fan.
23. Never tuck in your jersey.
24. The camp beast is beyond reproach. You will love him. He WILL record record numbers of ____.
25. You will decorate your vehicle and house like a Saints Christmas tree. The less tacky, the less fan.
26. You must post in the "Removed from dome for STANDING" thread.
27. Observe the post-loss grieving time. This is not a time for personal concerns.
28. Never suggest a 3 & out might happen on this possession.
29. You will be from Louisiana.
30. You will have an SR.com join date at least five years previous to the current date. NO exceptions.
31. Never carry a "Superbowl Hangover" sign.
32. Take the losses with the wins.
33. Do not display pessimism on the SR boards.
34. You will not think the Saints are playing to their potential right now.
35. Know how to use a comma.
36. Be behind your team 100%, 100% of the time.
37. Believe that your team tries their hardest on every play.
38. People have always said, no matter the circumstance, that there's someone better than them. There is not. Ever.
39. You will die for the Saints. (sorry, it's the rules)
40. Do not assume that Payton "doesn't like" Reggie. Period.
41. Never wear an Aaron Brooks jersey.
42. Deuce jerseys are okay.
43. When speaking of the rules, you will be honest when stating your compliance.
44. Claim to have been present for John Gilliam's KR TD. Even if you weren't born yet.
45. Rickey Jackson was better than Lawrence Taylor. Believe it!
46. Don't abuse visiting fans. (Unless "They had it coming.")
47. Believe that Drew Brees is an actual saint. (You too, atheists)
48. Get a little sick to the stomach every time you see "the run".
49. Never wear a bag. Slap people in their bags for wearing bags.
50. You don't need convincing, only faith.
51. You will be aware of all roster moves immediately. Don't make us inform you.
52. Never say that any team "dominates" the Saints. This is strictly forbidden.
53. Rule 49 was wrong. Slap yourself for believing it.
54. Breaking rule 49 will get you in the Fan Hall of Fame. But don't break it, cause then you're a bandwagoner.
55. If you needed to read these rules, you are not a real fan.
56. Blindly downplay the abilities of any Falcons player.
57. Appreciate what Joe Morgan represented.
58. Never criticize the team after they lose to the worst team in their conference.

I assumed that you meant a real fan does NOT do these things.

If this is incorrect please clarify, so that the tablets may be carved correctly.

The only time I boo the Saints is when we have a chance for a 50 burger by needing one more touchdown and SP starts running the ball 3 times then punts :worthy:

Know a team member by jersey number that doesn't include #9 or #12
Know the name of anyone on the o-line.

Permission to inscribe this rule as the following?

"Know the name of a Saints player that the average nine-year-old girl would not."

Suggest the Saints should sign Deuce in the latter parts of the season for "short yardage". Or always suggest the Saints should re-sign Mike Karney cause he was the "best FB" Saints have had.
