Im sick of people calling the Saints the darling of the league, Mother Theresa, and americas team. Its ruining a perfect season. If we are lucky enough to make the playoffs, people will always say that the league laid down for the Saints in 2006 out of pitty and remorse.

We need to make signs about Jamal Lewis's career as a drug dealer, we need to cheer when Mcnair gets injured, we need to be hated! "Fire Brian" chants.

5-1 looks good on paper but it doesn't mean jack if no one is going to give us real credit for it. The media is treating the Saints the same way they would treat a child with autism

Am I the only one angry at this?

Its best not to pick fights with anyone when you're the only team that been around since the 60's and still hasn't made it to a Super Bowl.

And yes, I can write in green.

Sorry, yes...I hope you are the only one that feels this way. The Saints have been playing smart, tough football...I for one hope this continues.

I could never cheer for anyone getting injured on the field. Yes, even a Falcons player. This is a game not survival of the fittest.

they can call us whatever they want as long as super bowl champs is included...

Well Scott Fujita almost took Steve Smith out for the season. That would have given us a bad boy reputation AND benefited us!

Unfourtantly it was an accident and not intentional so it didn't do any damage.

I understand what you’re saying and it bothers me a little bit as well. But then when I think about it, it comes down to concern that the team is not getting the respect they deserve. I don’t think this concern has much foundation though. The only people who seem to be exaggerating the “Cinderella” angle, are the people in the media. The team (Payton and Brees in particular) is getting a lot of respect from people who actually matter, i.e. other players and coaches.

So, yeah, like you, I’m getting a bit sick of the “darling of the league” stories. My only hope is that these writers finally find a way to stop putting a spin on the same old crap. Although, one look at television programming will tell you that may never happen.

I also disagree. 5-1 doesnt' mean jack if no one gives you credit? No, it means that you're 5-1 after 6 weeks and that's pretty dang good. Who cares about credit at this point- there's no asteriks next to our record in the standings is there? And top 5 in most powerrankings is credit- if you're into that kind of thing.

I think all this national attention is good for the city and good for the Saints. If because the city got destroyed and the team lived on the road last year and questioned whether they would have a place to play in New Orleans this year leads people to think its a "feel good" story - that's because it IS.

The bottom line is that we are winning. There's no asteriks next to the scores or record. And if someone wants to say it's because people feel sorry for us, then I would say that I don't have time for such idiocy.

Whodat.

This darling of the league stuff is only gonna get worse the more this team wins. But I'll take that, cause I know it'll make for some good lockerroom fodder for the players. Cinderella's gonna knock you out, We're gonna knock you out, Motha Teresa gonna knock you out. We'll eat it up.

AP don't let what the media outlets report bring you down and want to do things like you are thinking. The Saints have never been a team that had the so called labeled "Bad Fans". Aside from the Falcon BB(there are those there that do give us props) all other teams BB fans give us our props for being the best fans around, such as being friendly, hospitable, and creating a an atmosphere that makes the game enjoyable for the opposing fans. honestly do you really want to be in the "pool" with such rude and ignorant fans(as you said we need to do) that is known league wide? I don;t think you really do. I like that our fans are regarded as the best by other teams fans. Let the media continue spinning this season as they are, and they will, but I bet you that the remainig teams on our schedule and the ones we might face later on in January, aren't treating us like a child with autism. They understand that we aren;t all about emotion anymore!! They understand we are a very very good club. There is no need to lower your standards to such because the media upsets you. Keep your mind clear and head up & let the media outlets say what they want but come seasons end if things happen like we all feel then we will be the ones with the last laugh.
