My earliest memory of the Saints fans acting lively was when they were a competitive team under Drew.
I thought so too. Then I watched that NO special on CBS and Archie Manning was on it. And he said that he was shocked that people kept coming to Saints games when they sucked. And then it got me to thinking. The idea of putting bags on the heads is a bit theatrical and goofy and it was created by the Saints fans. So even when they sucked they were goofing off. Saints fans on that program didn't even mention their victory in the SB. They were talking about the losing legacy of the Saints and how the Saints were accepted despite that.
