“The GOAT Will Be Back On The Grass In 2020” – Drew Brees Returns

Posted by | February 18, 2020.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback and the NFL’s career passing leader will return for a 20th season after posting to Instagram on Tuesday that he will “make another run at it.”

Brees, who turned 41 in January, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent March 18, but he has made it clear for the past several years that he has no interest in testing the open market. So his only choices were staying in New Orleans or retiring.

The two sides will need to work out a new contract, but that shouldn’t be contentious. The last time Brees was a free agent, in 2018, he agreed to a two-year, $50 million contract that was slightly below market value — with only one year of salary guaranteed.

 

The Saints will also have to decide whether they want to try to keep both of their backups: unrestricted free agent Teddy Bridgewater and restricted free agent Taysom Hill. Coach Sean Payton said in late January that he thought it would be “very difficult” and “unrealistic” to keep all three quarterbacks with the Saints slammed tight against the salary cap.

The LSU Tigers have been playing football since November 25, 1893. They played against Tulane and lost. The loss ended up sparking a rivalry with the Green Wave. In 1896, the team joined the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association and officially declared themselves the Tigers. They also finally won. The early 1900s were spent building the school’s football program and team. Now, they have a winning record of 797–415–47 and a winning bowl record of 26–23–1. All the work has led to eight division titles and 15 conference titles. They have called Tiger Stadium home since 1924. In 1931, the idea of night games was introduced. Since then, many Tigers games take place under the lights. In 2015, there were 40 former LSU Tigers on the active rosters of NFL teams, which is considered a notable accomplishment. Their Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees include Jim Taylor and Steve Van Buren. The team’s College Football Hall of Fame inductees include Tommy Casanova, Jerry Stovall and Bert Jones. Top rivals include the Alabama Crimson Tide, Arkansas Razorback and Auburn Tigers.


The Pelicans moved from Charlotte to New Orleans in 2002, and NBA basketball returned to the city for the first time since the New Orleans Jazz relocated to Utah at the end of the 1970s. The Pelicans originally kept their previous name, the Hornets, after they moved. The New Orleans Hornets made the playoffs in their first two years back in Louisiana.
Because of damage to their arena and surrounding floods following Hurricane Katrina, the Hornets were forced to play most of the 2005-06 and 2006-07 in Oklahoma City, and the team called itself the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets. They moved back to New Orleans full time for the 2007-08 season, and the Pelicans currently play at the Smoothie King Center.
For the 2013-14 season, the team changed its name to the New Orleans Pelicans, after the state bird of Louisiana. In the meantime, a new team—the Bobcats—had formed in Charlotte. The Bobcats reassumed the Hornets’ name and the history of the original franchise when it was located in Charlotte from 1988-2002). The NBA officially recognizes the Pelicans as having formed in 2002, when the team moved to New Orleans.

15 Best Places to Watch the Game in New Orleans

Posted by | January 18, 2020.

If you’re in New Orleans, you’re most likely here for the Saints. Let’s say you weren’t lucky enough to score tickets; but you can still make watching the game an incredibly enjoyable experience. Sure, you’ve got cable at home, so you could totally watch it in the comfort of your own living room. But nowhere is watching the game more of an event than in a traditional New Orleans sports bar.

The only problem is choosing just one – the best one. There are dozens to choose from, depending on preference. Which one will you choose? The one with the great food? The one with the big screens? What about the atmosphere? Is it the same in every bar? Here are the 15 best sports bars in New Orleans. Be mindful of the fact that most of these bars are 21 years old and up, but there are some good options that welcome all ages!

1) Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar and Restaurant
The surf-themed bar in the Warehouse District has traditionally been a Saints team member hangout. Drew Brees has even stopped by to give bar patrons a chant lesson. Check out a larger bar area courtesy of a recent revamp. Catch the game and then partake in post-game partying. Lucy’s is the official hangout for the Big Easy Mafia. There is no better place to cheer the Saints on.

2) Tracey’s
Another favorite of the locals, Tracey’s is an Irish bar, and boy, do they love sports here. This one’s a little busier, because it’s bigger and more well-known, so there’s always a pleasant murmur of people coming in and out. Since it’s an Irish bar, you’ll be able to sample the delicious dishes, all in an eccentric décor that includes a voodoo doll of a referee – make of that what you will.

3) R Bar
Who says that vegans can’t enjoy a good Saints game and delicious snacks at a local sports bar? Yeah, a lot of the “traditional” food served in sports bars is meat-based, but this place offers some mean vegan cheesesteaks. There are also pop-up food stalls to offer you options. Screens are available both indoors and outdoors, so you can take your pick of seat and enjoy yourself.

4) Wrong Iron
Technically, this is a beer garden. So, can you really think of a better place to watch a Saint’s game? I think not. One of the benefits is that the location is super accessible, so you can’t miss it. If you’re a drink man, you’ll love it here, because they’ve got a wide, and delicious array of drinks, from wine and cocktails to 50 different beers available on tap. They’ve got their huge TVs parked smack dab in the middle of their patio. Hurry up and grab a seat!

Matt Bowers Offers To Buy Detroit Lions QB A Brand New Vehicle If They Beat The Packers

Posted by | December 24, 2019.

Matt Bowers, the owner of a Slidell car dealership, member of the Big Easy Mafia and well-known New Orleans Saints fan is doing what he can to help the black and gold earn a top seed in the NFC playoffs.

Bowers took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to reach out to Detroit Lions quarterback David Blough and offer “to hook him up” with a new vehicle if Detroit can beat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

“He’s in Detroit, so I have to get him an American truck, right? I figure that’s good karma,” Bowers joked. “I can’t go back too far now. I’m all out there now.”

Matt Bowers stepped up big time before for the Who Dat Nation after officials blew a pass interference call in the Saints-Rams NFC championship game last year, Bowers paid for up to two weeks worth of signage on billboards throughout the Super Bowl host city of Atlanta that said “Saints got robbed” and “NFL BLEAUX IT!”

Family Searches For Deceased Sons Saints Jersey, Lost Since 49ers Game

Posted by | December 11, 2019.

The Harper family have been Saint fans and season-ticket holders for years. They had several family traditions they carried out at every home game including wearing the same outfit to each game.

“We all have our game day attire, we don’t change,” said Jennifer Harper. “Same socks, same shoes, same blouse, everything.”

Bobby Harper Jr. stuck out in a crowd at the Dome. He was 6’7” with red hair and a red beard. He always wore his Drew Brees jersey to the games.

“He was on his way to help a coworker who was stranded when he was killed in the car accident,” said his mother, Jennifer Harper.

The shock of his loss hit his family hard. The Saints traditions became part of Bobby’s end-of-life celebrations. They hosted a Saints tailgate at their home for his memorial. Bobby’s ashes are in a Saints urn.

This season, his family has attended games with his old jersey and hung it on his empty seat.

In New Orleans For A Saints Game, What To Do?

Posted by | December 7, 2019.

You have finally made it to New Orleans for a Saints game. Now you are looking for something to do while waiting for Saints Game Day right?

We know that raw oysters, po-boys piled high with fried seafood, fluffy beignets and classic cocktails carried in to-go-cups down Bourbon Street are on the top of any newcomer’s bucket list, but there is more than eating at delectable restaurants, drinking at awesome local bars and browsing through attractions: get ready to dance in the streets, hit antique shops, walk through the French Quarter, ride a streetcar at least once during your stay here.

French Quarter

What is it: The oldest and most famous neighborhood in New Orleans has much more to offer than the neon debauchery of Bourbon Street—although everyone should walk down Bourbon Street with a to-go cup in hand at one point.

Why go: The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré, has been the heart of New Orleans for all 300 years of its existence, built on the banks of the Mississippi River on higher ground. Today, Bourbon Street anchors the party and food scene, while the other elegant streets house galleries, shops and music clubs, so wander around and take it all in. Be sure to stop into one of the city’s oldest restaurants here, Antoine’s, where the oysters Rockefeller dish was first invented. Also don’t miss Preservation Hall, the venerable hole-in-the-wall jazz club.

World War II Museum

What is it: This world-class museum is a treasure trove of World War II information and insight. Expect to browse through memorabilia from the terrible conflict on display here.

Why go: Founded on the 56th anniversary of D-Day in 2000, this museum has drawn visitors from around the world to learn about the war from the American point of view. The museum is located in New Orleans because of Andrew Higgins, who was based here, contributed to the Allied victory by inventing the flat-bottomed Higgins boats that allowed the forces to storm the beaches at Normandy. The collection includes those boats and much more, from documents, uniforms and weapons to fully restored period aircraft. Don’t miss the dramatic 4D theater experience, complete with simulated gunfire and artillery explosions, all narrated by Tom Hanks.

Drew Brees Wants All Saints Fans To Get Loud Against The 49ers

Posted by | December 6, 2019.

The Saints have a huge game this Sunday as San Francisco travels to New Orleans. There’s no place like Dome, and Drew Brees has a favor to ask of fans at the game.

The New Orleans Saints took to twitter to let everyone know that Drew Brees says to get loud as the San Francisco offense huddles up to call their plays. Make it as hard as possible for them to hear the right play.

When Drew asks for something, the Big Easy Mafia delivers so, I have no doubt the Superdome will be deafening this Sunday.

The Big Easy Mafia will be out in full force and will shut down the 49ers fans as quick as they open up their mouth. The popular referee event called “Ref Up The Dome…Again” will be going on for the Sunday mega matchup. So make sure you wear your referee attire.

10 Of The Best New Orleans Saints Songs: Game Day Hype Music

Posted by | December 3, 2019.



Here’s 10 of the best New Orleans Saints songs guaranteed to get you hyped on Black and Gold Game Day

1) ‘Halftime’ (‘Stand Up and Get Crunk’)

The 2004 club anthem by Atlanta rap duo the Ying Yang Twins was the call-to-arms during the Saints magical 2009 season, which culminated in a 31-17 Super Bowl victory over the Indianapolis Colts in 2010. But did you know it was almost dropped from the Superdome repertoire? It wasn’t used at all in the Superdome during the 2013 preseason, and only on “special occasions,” at least initially, during the regular season. Saints fans weren’t having that – more than 80 percent of respondents to an offseason survey of Saints season ticket holders opted to keep “Crunk” in the mix.

2) ‘Who Dat Black and Gold Superbowl’

Midway through the 2009 NFL season, New Orleans rapper K. Gates grafted new, Saints-specific lyrics to the instrumental track from the Ying Yang Twins’ “Halftime (Stand Up and Get Crunk).” The result went viral across the Who Dat Nation.

3) ‘The Saints Are Coming’

After the Superdome reopened in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina, “The Saints are Coming” by U2 and Green Day would become inextricably linked to New Orleans and the team. U2 and Green Day performed as part of the pre-game festivities Sept. 25 before the Saints played the first game back against the Falcons on Monday Night Football.

4) ‘I Believe’ (‘Saints Go All the Way’)

This oldie by Harrison Avenue is one of our favorites. Try not to clap along — it’s impossible. Sing it, Angela Bell.

5) ‘Big Easy Mafia’

Created in 2014 by local rap artists 5-Star and Tbone, this New Orleans Saints Anthem is guaranteed to have your head bobbing and feet moving. It is quickly becoming one of the most popular songs played at tailgate parties and was even played inside the Superdome during player warmups on game day.

6) ‘Let’s Go Get ‘Em’

You gotta have some brass band music at the Saints party. By Rebirth Brass Band, Bo Dollis and Monk Boudreaux.

7) ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’

New Orleans’ favorite son Louis Armstrong performs the song that would become the perfect classic for the New Orleans Saints.

8) ‘Bring ‘Em to the Dome’

Dee-1 & Shamarr Allen sample Armstrong’s classic and throw in some Who Dat. “Bring ’em to the Dome, we gonna get it on.”

9) ‘Choppa Style’

Originally released in 2003 “Choppa Style,” has seemingly taken hold of every member of Who Dat nation.

10) ‘A Saints Christmas’

Kermit Ruffins sings “All I Want for Christmas is the Saints in the Super Bowl” in this December 2009 cut.

“Prowl, Kill, Eat” T-shirts Inspired By Demario Davis

Demario Davis #56 of the New Orleans Saints has a trademarked saying he says during the pre game chant. He says “We Prowl, We kill, We eat”. Basically it means, if each and everyone of you go out there on the field and give everything you have and “do your job” We Will Win! Davis is donating the proceeds of the T-shirt sales to Volunteers of Americas Mentoring Children of Promise Program in New Orleans Louisiana.

Demario Davis Wins Appeal And Will Not Have To Pay Fine For Wearing His “Man of God” Headband

Posted by | October 9, 2019.


New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis won’t have to pay the fine stemming from the “Man of God” headband he wore during the Week 3 contest against the Seattle Seahawks, Davis said in an Instagram post.

“My agent just told me that I won my appeal and won’t have to pay the headband fine,” Davis wrote.

Davis also used the post to commend the children at St. Louis King of France Catholic School, who made their own versions of Davis’ headband and wore them to school on Tuesday.

“Of course you don’t want to be fined,” Davis said last week. ”Nobody wants to lose money but I think any time that the conversation about God is brought up, especially in these times, I think it’s always a positive or silver lining. If he can get glory from it, I think he can get glory from it whether I personally wear the headband or don’t wear the headband. He’s always gonna be in control of the whole situation. We’re still all good.”

Saints Linebacker Demario Davis Is Selling The “Man Of God” Headbands For Charity

Posted by | October 7, 2019.

New Orleans Saints star linebacker Demario Davis wore a headband on the field for the team’s first four games of the 2019 season. It read: “Man of God.”

After Week 4, Davis was fined $7,017 by the NFL for wearing the headband. (Apparently, the headband just wasn’t noticed those first three weeks.)

According to the NFL, Davis’ headband is not allowed due to the “personal messages” article in the rulebook.

Fair enough. Since Davis is no longer allowed to wear the headband, however, he’s decided to sell it and donate the proceeds to a charity.

So now you can purchase your very own “Man of God” headband and all proceeds will be donated to St. Dominic’s Emergency Department.

Be sure to check out “The NFL Can’t Fine The Who Dat Nation” A Movement dedicated to Demario Davis. WE The Who Dat Nation, all need to show up at the superdome when the New Orleans Saints take on the Arizona Cardinals on October 27th with our “Man of God” and “Woman of God” headbands. Let’s make an impact and show Demario Davis we support him and his mission.

“The NFL Can’t Fine The Who Dat Nation” (An Event Dedicated To Demario Davis)

Posted by | October 6, 2019.

The Big Easy Mafia is hosting a public event in the Mercedes Benz Superdome dedicated to Demario Davis. It will be held on Sunday October 27th when the Saints play the Arizona Cardinals. The NFL, in an outrageous act, has fined the Saints captain $7000 for wearing a headband with ‘Man Of God’ written on it and plans on increasing the fines every time he wears the headband on the playing field.

Davis took to social media to complain that he was fined $7,000 for wearing a headband with the phrase “Man of God” during a match against the Seahawks. He even posted a picture of the headband on Instagram and asked followers if he should wear it again. “So, I got fined $7K for my headband. Should I continue to wear it, or nah?” he wrote. If he does wear it the second time he could face a fine for a second offense which would be $14,037.

Saints Superfan “Signature Saint” Has Over 64 Signatures Ranging From Brees, Kamara, Gleason, And Gayle Benson

Posted by | October 4, 2019.

Brian Henry AKA “Signature Saint” and member of Big Easy Mafia has collected 64 Saints autographs, which he’s had tattooed across his back. Permanently. In the flesh.

Henry asks players to sign his skin with a Sharpie marker, then dashes as quickly as possible to his personal tattooist, Dominic Sgro at Catahoula Tattoo, who converts the signature into a scrupulously accurate tattoo.

Henry said that of all his autographs, the most touching was also the most recent. When he attended 2019 Gleason Gras, a fan festival that benefits research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Former Saints safety Steve Gleason, a hero of the 2006 season, is afflicted with the paralyzing illness. Henry said he didn’t expect Gleason to be able to sign his body, but he hoped the former player would authorize him to use a tracing of his signature.

“Ref Up The Dome” Part Deux (Saints VS Cowboys Game)

Posted by | September 22, 2019.

The incompetent referees of the NFL have blatantly been making bad calls and or no calls against the Saints for the last 3 games in a row, one of them being the final game of last season.

All New Orleans Saints fans are encouraged to wear a referee shirt for the Saints vs Cowboys game on Sunday September 29th. We need to make a statement on National TV to let the world know that we are loyal, passionate and pissed. Some call it “petty”, others call it “salty”, and they even have those so called Saints fans that say we need to get over it and focus on a new season as if the fans are on the field playing. The players need to forget it and focus on the new season but us as fans, the 12th man, it’s our job to focus on the petty stuff and make statements. We are the ones that can hold signs and wear T-shirts mocking the commissioner. We are also the ones who can wear a patch on our jersey of a referee with his head in his ass, all without getting penalized and fined.

NFL Referee “LOL” Jersey Patch

Posted by | September 21, 2019.



The Saints were affected by an ignorant officials call in the game against the Los Angeles Rams in the 2018 NFC Championship game when Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman was not called for pass interference after he hit Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis when the review showed clear evidence he hit Lewis long before the football arrived and helmet-to-helmet contact was made. Now, a second time against you got it…the Rams, this time in the 2019 season, a touchdown was taken away from the Saints in a game devoid of them.

The initial ruling by the officials was incomplete pass by Goff, giving the Rams a 4th-and-7 at the 11. The officials reviewed the play after Saints head coach Sean Payton challenged the incomplete pass. The play was reversed, but the Saints were not ruled with a touchdown since the play was ruled dead via the whistle.

The Who Dat Nation has had enough of the stupidity, the ignorance of the rule book, and the lack of accountability by the NFL. The referees need to get their head out of their ass. Saints fans will be wearing this patch on the gameday jerseys to show the world just how we feel about them.

For only $8 plus shipping you can get the patch that has been talked about on both ESPN and the NFL Network and begin making a statement for yourself. Order yours by clicking here.
