Katrina really messed up things as as far as hate goes.. If you need a reason to hate on New Orleans outside of football, they did take the Hornets

I will give that the Saints and Falcons are rivals primarily because for years and years they played only to see who was the worst team in football, and who was the second worst. They still carry over some of that rivalry to this day, and if you ask fans of either fan base who their rival is, that answer will come up pretty quickly.

With that said, I've felt the last few years that the TB series has really gotten brutal, I think that someone could be carted to a morgue with how hard some of the hits are in those games.

I swear to God I never heard anyone give a poo about the saints till the super bowl win.

Everyone always gets riled up when its

atl vs car

car vs tb

tb vs atl

When it comes to saints its like BSjeG.png

actually, the rivalry between the saints and the falcons is bigger than any of those rivalries you just mentioned.

New Orleans is tough to pull against after what they went through with Katrina and the way they rebounded. Plus, Drew Brees is such a likable guy.

New Orleans hasn't really been a threat in our division until a couple of years ago. Nobody hates the team that is the door mat every year.

That should be a good reason, but Charlotte apparently didnt care enough about the Hornets at that time that I barely call it a theft.

I do want the Hornets name back. I hated Shinn and wanted him out of town, but if any team in the NBA is going to be the Hornets, it should be in Charlotte.

Has anyone else noticed a lot of younger kids around town are wearing Charlotte Hornet hats by the way? I've noticed quite a few.

Heck, I even bought a Charlotte Hornets t-shirt from Old Navy last year. I guess just out of pure nostalia, but I did love the Charlotte Hornets.

Actually, just thinking about that is probably the only thing I could get upset at NO about... I would love for Jordan to negotiate a way to get the Hornets name back, especially since the league took over the Hornets

I've seen much more old school Charlotte Hornets apparel up here than I have seen NO Hornets... not even close

IMO, enough time has passed since the Hornets left that I can be nostalgic about it now. When they left, I balled up all the Hornets gear I had and threw it away, but recently I grabbed one of those Mitchell & Ness throwback hats just because it brings back some good memories.

I agree on the Hornets name... this is the Hornet's Nest, a nickname that dates all the way back to the war of independence. We could give Utah the Bobcats name, give NO back the Jazz name and take back the Hornets name.

Why would you hate new Orleans in winter? Hah...most people prefer it. It's brutal down there in the summer. As far as national relevance as a city, I'd say it is still relevant even after Katrina. Just it's status as a port alone, makes it relevant.

If you are talking about a rivalry based on the importance of a game, then that's going to change as teams change....but as far as a traditional rivalry it's saints falcons, and not even close as someone said.
