Does anyone find it hard to dislike the Saints?

Even though they're supposed to be division rivals, they've always seemed like the little brother of the NFC South. The JV. The "I'm just glad to be here" team. I mean, when you go into their house and kick their ass so many times in a row, no matter how bad the Panthers are, no matter if it's Jake Delhomme or David Carr starting, it just doesn't feel like a rivalry to me.

Even though the Saints are probably the best team in the NFL this year and we've looked so horrible for so much of this season, it wouldn't surprise me if we went into New Orleans and beat them yet again. It's almost like a psychological thing for the Saints at this point.

They've been around for how long and still haven't made it to a single Super Bowl? I mean, how can you not almost pity them at this point?

I definately don't hate them like I do the Falcons or Bucs. Let them enjoy there little streak b/c we all know someone will end it....we also know they ain't gonna do anything this year b/c they are and will always be the Aints. You can put a dress on a pig and it is still a pig. The Saints can start of 7-0 but they are still the Aints.

no.

division rivals.

media has been slobbering all over them for several years.

lots of bandwagon fans (many of whom were vick fans who jumped the falcon bandwagon when he got locked up).

played the role of spoiler too many times for us.

no. not hard to hate them.

I like Drew Brees. Have since he was a Charger. I can't hate him now just because he's playing for a division rival. It's just too bad we didn't grab him when he left SD.

I have a strong dislike for the Saints. Nothing on the border line hate(which is a very strong word) I have for the Falcons. But I think it's more having to do with your individual situations. For instance , since I live in ATL, I have developed a stronger hate for the falcons than before I lived here. I have a friend who works with a bunch of saints fans and his hatred of the saints was at the point where I thought he might have caused Katrina. That in no way affects my personal feeling toward each of the cities. I love both NO and ATL. I didn't like Tampa being division rivals but had no real problems toward them until Lone Buc Fan showed up. Now I wish them misery upon no end.

That being said, nothing would make me happier than destroying all this undefeated season crap coming from the Saints fans. It makes me even happier that it would be caused by a "inferior" team like the Panthers, without a "legitimate" NFL QB. Destroying their run defense would be nice, but showing up their pass defense at the same time.....football orgasm.

Nope, not hard for me... can't stand them... it's not all their fault though... with ESPN constantly blowing them on live TV it's easy for me to hate them... same goes for the Patriots and Cowgirls.

I agree about the hype that they routinely get. Why do you think that is? They've never done anything, they don't have a big fanbase...why the media hype over the past few years? I know Katrina started it, but that's faded away by now. And then Reggie Bush gave it another shot in the arm, but he's done nothing like what was expected of him.
