Why do carolina fans have such a warped view of things....Or are just trolling?



Main article: Falcons–Saints rivalry
The Falcons–Saints rivalry is a divisional rivalry in the NFC South. At 84 games played, the series is by far the oldest and most established rivalry in the division. Born one year apart, the Saints and Falcons were the first two NFL franchises in the Deep South (Washington and Dallas being arguably southern but not in the traditional Deep South). They have shared many of the same players, such as Morten Andersen (the leading scorer in both franchises' histories), Bobby Hebert (who quarterbacked for both teams in the 1990s), and Joe Horn (the Pro Bowl Saints receiver who left for the Falcons in 2007). They have also drawn coaches from the same families, and even shared a head coach: recent Falcons coach Jim L. Mora is the son of longtime Saints coach Jim E. Mora, and former Falcons and Saints coach Wade Phillips is the son of former Saints coach Bum Phillips. Although rarely noted by the national media - no doubt due to both teams' long stretches of futility - games between the Falcons and Saints have riveted their respective regions for more than 40 years. Fans of both teams consider the other their most important and hated opponent.
ESPN.com writer Len Pasquarelli has cited the rivalry as one of the best in all of sports: "Every year, bus caravans loaded with rowdy (and usually very inebriated) fans make the seven-hour trip between the two cities. Unless you've attended a Falcons-Saints debauchery-filled afternoon, you'll just have to take my word for how much fun it really can be."[21]
The all-time series is currently led by Atlanta at 45-39 (44-39 regular season, 1-0 playoffs).

Ummm... The Saints became our #1 division rival since the day they picked up Breezy. Atlanta was our biggest rival in the Vick years... But now again with Matt Ryan...

Here's a definition for you though

Rival- 1 a : one of two or more striving to reach or obtain something that only one can possess b : one striving for competitive advantage

Stay with me for a minute here... It may be hard but hopefully by the end it will make sense to you...Being that their can only be one Division champ, and their are 4 teams striving to win the division... By definition we are all rivals...

So to answer your question and thread title... You probably were the only one that thought that. Clearly after reading this post u must have changed your position and opinion... If not, there's nothing I can do to help you bro.

we are all rivals, we can belittle them all we want but the nfcs usually has 3 competitive teams and one bad one each year, except 08 when 8-8 was the basement. They have a nice system in place and with brees, they are dangerous. I still feel they were gift wrapped that NFCCG vs the Vikes and were more than fortunate to accidentally win a Super Bowl. They have a couple more seasons before they will be the permanent basement cleaners again.

Every team in our division is our rival. How can they not be?

I agree, I don't think of the Saints as a "rival" in the same sense I think of TB and ATL as rivals. Now that the Saints have won a SB and are pretty good I'd like to see us beat them, but that doesn't make it a "rivalry" beyond the simple matter of them being in the same division.

I still remember the pity party we had for the Saints in the "home" game they played here. I understand Katrina was a horrible disaster, but if TB or ATL was hit with a similar disaster I'm not sure we would have felt the same way towards those teams as we did towards the Saints.

The Saints were the doormat of the NFL for the better part of 40 years, it was impossible to hate them or build any kind of rivarly because they were so incredibly bad, it was like rooting against a handicap person in the special olympics.

The Saints-Falcons rivalry is the biggest in the division and it isn't really close.

I'd say it has all really kinda changed over the years. Back in the early 2000's I think it was more of a rivalry with the Bucs. It really felt that way in our '03 season, especially the game where we blocked two EP's to win the game. I think when Vick was real hot in Atlanta, they became our biggest rival. When you'd watch games and they would show three lines, the yellow first down line, the blue LOS line, and then the red 'this is how far back Vick can run and still outrun everybody for a first down' line, that ish used to piss me off to no end. The latter part of the 2000's it seemed we would always play the Saints late with playoff implications, so that felt more like a rivalry to me then.

All in all, I'd say between parity and scheduling throughout the years, I've grown to hate all 3 equally, and would say they are all our division rivals. Also, we seem to play NYG a lot and I really dislike them as well as far as rivals outside the division.

It seems in the Fox era, the majority of those fans hates us the most. But who can really tell. The NO-Atl rivalry is the oldest, but of those 40+ years, they were rarely playing for anything. I would be somewhat surprised if they both fielded competitive teams in same years unil recently.

The Saints are not a rival in the sense ATL is, at least to me. A lot of that is because the rivalry between Atlanta and Charlotte goes beyond just football to the cities themselves.

ATL is like the big brother and CLT is the up-and-comer with a chip on their shoulder.

New Orleans is a rival somewhat b/c they are in our division, but there is no city to city rivalry. Partly b/c NO is too far away and New Orleans is a lot smaller.

Beyond that, it is hard to hate NO as a city or a team too much. The Saints sucked for so long, Brees is likeable, the city will never recover to what it once was not only pre-Katrina but even years ago when NO was actually a relevant city nationally.

I do kind of get tired of the "woe is me" cross the Saints have carried for 5 years now, but what else are you going to use to get hyped at living there? Besides Saints football and Mardi Gras, I don't what else you could possibly get geeked up about for very long.

NO as a city is like my old alcoholic fraternity brother who never grew out of it. Fun guy to party with, but you don't want to be around him at 30 the same way you did when you were 20.

NO is great city to visit and party, but I could not imagine living there in the winter. I guess that's why I can't hate on NO too much. I feel too bad for the people that have to live there year round.

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
