Saints fans, outraged by the loss of their team in the NFC Championship, are unlikely to give up that disappointment on the Super Bowl. Before the match between the sheep and the patriots on Sunday, thousands of saint supporters invaded the streets of New Orleans in a demonstration that, in the spirit of the Big Thought, was like a protest party.
Called the "Blackout and Gold Second-Line Parade," referring to the Saints' colors, the demonstration included many fans carrying team accessories, and some with shirt-carrying messages that stigmatized the impossible call that helped Los Angeles win the NFC championship game.
Fans gathered on Sunday near Jackson Square, a popular destination in the French Quarter of the city, to make their feelings known or just join a rude but usually funny feast that New Orleans is famous for. Referring to Super Bowl's location, a Saints fan told the New Orleans Times-Picayune: "I do not think any losing team will have a party like us, it will be better than what is happening today in Atlanta.
While some people elsewhere in the country noted that the protest had begun before the start of Super Bowl, potentially giving Svench's disgruntled fans to watch the game, if they wish, many people in the city have said they will not be watching, and the Boycott Event Cup "was also held in New Orleans on Sunday. The "Second Line" event included a jazz funeral to symbolically rest a saint season that many felt too early.
"We are angry," said Lauren Haydell, a Saints fan and business owner, who began selling shirts with a Voodoo Judge's doll with pins coming out of her, said last week (via the AP). "We will not even go to TV spot. I do not care to look at it. "
NFL Commissioner Roger Gueel admitted earlier this week that a mistake was made during a non-subscription in which the rams were not flagged for crossing interference, which cost the saints the chance to miss the clock and finish the game with a very short goal of field. "This is a game to be called," said Gudel. "We will make sure we do our best to cope with the problems that go ahead and see if there are any improvements we can make with immediate replay or anything else."
"I understand the emotions," Gudel added.
Louis Senator, US Senator Bill Cassidy, went so far as to condemn the non-invitations to the Senate floor, and some New Orleans fans filed lawsuits, including one that led to a federal court ruling against the authorization of the saints. – Sheep Race.
"This happens when the fans of the saints come together," says the organizer of one of Times-Picayune protests, "because we realize that the game is not a result, but a profitable attitude, spirit, and shows the world that we we are defeated. "
