This is, sadly enough, not anything new. Years ago, Saints fans tried pooling their money together for a billboard outside of the Georgia Dome. I believe they predictably failed, but they are back at it again.
Except this one is different. The Saints, 0-2 against the Falcons last year, obviously cannot be the source of their trash talk. No way. Luckily these sad fans can live vicariously through the New England Patriots.
You know exactly where this is going. Per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
For $1,000 a week, Saints fans want to make Falcons fans relive the Super Bowl collapse with a billboard displaying the now infamous 28-3 third-quarter score near Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Is this how fans talk trash when you know your team has no chance of doing anything on the field? I can’t help but feel this is exceptionally sad. At the same time, I support this group of depressed fans with nothing to cheer for to pool together their hard earned money and sending it to Atlanta.
Drew Brees is going to throw for 5,000+ yards, 30+ touchdowns, and rack up about six wins. That’s another sad season for a sad fanbase that has only gotten to see one playoff win since 2011.
Live vicariously through the Patriots, you sad fans, and pay Atlanta a loser tax of $1,000 a month. You won’t see many wins this season, and likely none against the Falcons, but you can take money out of your local economy and send it to Atlanta. I hope they can keep up the billboard for years.
