I'm done with the Saints. Honestly, giving up their third round pick for a RECEIVER is bad enough, proving that Sean Payton has completely fallen off the deep end, but to overspend on Roddy White of all people makes it criminal. The Saints also gave up a 2nd round 2014 pick in addition to land the prolific receiver's services. White has to be my least favorite player in the NFL, and for him to come to the Saints and wear a black and gold jersey is more painful than any 1-15 season could ever be. I'm really not sure what possessed the Saints' brass to add a player that had these things to say about them, but I guess the talent was too good to pass up. Still, the Saints and White have a lot of history and White hasn't really been able to take his losses like a man. Most surprising to me is the Saints are willing to overlook some irresponsible comments he made, namely "The grace of god gave them tht championship so tht city wouldn fall apart now and now they think they hot [obscenity]." Hard to believe we now have to root for this idiot. Ugh. To make matters worse, the Saints released Marques Colston in order to make the cap room work based on the addition of White's significant contract. Even if you overlook the bad blood and White's immature behavior, giving up a 3rd round pick this year, and 2nd round pick next year, AND giving up on Marques Colston just doesn't really feel like a worthwhile move to me.
APRIL FOOL'S!!!!!!!!! Hahahaha. Hopefully at least one of you fell for this? This is actually Saints Nation's 4th birthday today, so I want to thank all of you for being so supportive of the site and making this endeavor so personally rewarding for me. And lucky for us, the Saints would never bring in trash like Roddy White over a model citizen like Marques Colston. That's why we're the good guys. Who dat and GEAUX SAINTS!
That is second but close only to April Fools joke 1986 when the Atlanta news media reported that Georgia and Auburn traded Head coaches Vince Dooley for Pat Dye.
Worst troll ever. Funny thing is...you 'Aints wish you had Roddy, but its never going to happen. GO FALCONS!
@DetarviusRossum I would prefer chug a gallon of drano than root for that clown. You won't find one fan that would want White on the saints. Oh, and Aints? Only one of our franchises has a super bowl last time I checked. So who "aint" got one?
Whenever I have a bad day, I think about the 5 picks we had on Brees last season. I feel so much better!! #RiseUp
ha Ha, Rodney wouldn't ever play for a team thta cheats!!! He wouldn't want to be associated with the scum!
@FakeSeanPayton guaranteed this fools no one
@WhoDat21625 alright mr buzzkill enough already, u can go back to knocking kids ice cream cones on the ground. No fun for fake Payton 2day
@SaintsNationBlg I had a panic attack for a second. It's too early for April's fools jokes! Hahaha
HA!!! Didn't even need a Satire tag for this one. Hope you had a Happy Easter Juge, and everyone else too.
@aprildobbs01 we would never trade for a dbag like Roddy, don't worry :)
@aprildobbs01 April, you do realize if you report/flag my comment as abusive, it just goes to me, right? Hahahaha. Nice try.
@aprildobbs01 @SaintsNation April just let me quote you there: "I'm a die-hard Falcons fan and deal with haters daily" ... Why the hell do you think you have to deal with them? Because you seek them out maybe? You are here on a Saints Blog by and for Saints fans. I am not going to defend my Saints on a Falcons blog. That is something most people seem to know.
@SaintsNation @aprildobbs01 Funny thing is, I haven't thought twice about this foolishness...so even giving this energy to spam is lame. I must admit though...your responsiveness is impressive! ...even for a Saints fan! Good job, tink-tink! Now, who ever felt the need to have my back by spamming lil SaintsNation's special comment...I'm a die-hard Falcons fan and deal with haters daily. This is lightweight...trust. Awful sweet of you, though. LOL
@SaintsNationBlg too obvious
@SaintsNationBlg LOL i think Roddy would quit before plating there....Too Obvious!
yeah 'BountyGate' Good Guys. Cheap shotted your way through 2010 playoffs, congrats on the white hat. #cokesnorter
@JamieStarrr I'm glad you can take a light hearted april fool's joke and turn it into that, somewhere it just didn't need to go. What does snorting coke have to do with ANYTHING?
@SaintsNationBlg good way to start out April fools day
@SaintsNationBlg hahahaha. Good laugh.
@SaintsNationBlg Too obvious.
@SaintsNationBlg - right...April fools.....silly
