Hello

Well, first off I want to open this and say that I do not intend at all to say anything smart-ass, trashy, assholish or anything of that sort.

As a lifelong saints fan, I can tell you that I have been here oh so many times before. The countless amounts of mice, monitors, windows and chairs I have broken on any given Sunday im sure matches up with the most passionate fan of any franchise.

The feeling you have of disappointment and the disgusting realization of having to wait all the way to next fall for a new start is frustrating, and that is putting it lightly.

What I can tell you is the best franchises in this league are the ones with fans that, while disappointed, never give up on the actual franchise. As a fellow team in the NFC south, I have always tolerated Carolina the most of the 3 opposing teams we face each season. I think it is because I see a very similar fan base.

While it did not happen this season, I see fllashes of good in this Carolina team, the same flashes you guys see.

I mean from the bottom of my heart that I really do hope you guys get it together over the offseason. This organization has given me way too many memorable and amazing sundays (happy, and frustrating) and I hope you guys can find yourselves in the off season, find your stride and start putting out quality, competitive football; the same quality competitive football I think of when I circle you guys on the schedule at the start of the season.

Good luck and see you guys next year.

I appreciate the sentiment, but don't expect to be appreciated. We're still hurting right now and honestly I feel like cursing someone out who doesn't deserve it, but I fear terrorist moderators.

no, its not a trick. its from a fan from a fellow NFC south team who respects the carolina organization very much and who has also been rock bottom tons of times.

I was completely expecting a troll when i read the thread topic. DBIG alter ego or something. Totally caught me off guard with this one. But..... a complete heart shattering nightmare nonetheless having to read sympathy posts from rival teams fans. This sucks. :(

its not a sympathy post. its a post from someone that who lost everything in katrina, was on a roof for a day and my team winning a superbowl 4 and a half years from that moment was something that was unrealer than the government not being able to get water to an american city. so i know what its like to feel down and out.
