The Whodatnation has had to part ways with fan favorites many times. It was heartbreaking when Darren Sproles left the Saints. It was heartbreaking when Malcom Jenkins, Tracey Porter, and even Brandin Cooks were traded. When Jimmy Graham went to Seattle it took a while for the horrific realization of his absence to actually sink in. This time is slightly different. When news hit that The Saints were making an offer to Vikings RB, Latavius Murray, fans knew immediately it meant there was a huge possibility Mark Ingram could be on his way out of the door. I believe the…

When Hannah Beachler won the Oscar for Best Production Design for her work on the set of Marvel’s Black Panther she made history. Although her work was shared with Jay Hart she became the first Black woman to even be nominated for an Academy Award in that category and she also became the first Black woman to actually win it. But, it’s what she said when she began her acceptance speech that stole the night. The first words to come through her lips were, “New Orleans, ya heard me?” It was the perfect moment and opportunity to let the world…

While CBS was airing a party inside the Mercedes Benz Superdome in Atlanta an even bigger party was happening a few blocks from the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Thousands of fans gathered for what some are calling the biggest New Orleans Second Line in recent city history. At least three different Boycott NFL events took place in three different areas of the Greater New Orleans Metro. All three were reportedly over the capacity and filled with energy and pride. The largest gathering of the three took place in the mouth of the city, The French Quarters. There were…

Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner, has basically given the New Orleans Saints his middle finger. I will translate what he really said into plain English so you have a better understanding of what’s really happening in the biggest scandal in the History of American Sports. Goodell held his Annual Superbowl Press Conference in Atlanta but for the first time in History, the majority of the questions asked by reporters were not even about the Superbowl nor the two teams involved. In fact, there were very few reporters even interested in the game period. The country is sending a bold message…

No need to go over the unbelievable missed calls in the 2019 NFC Champsionship in the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The whole world must know by now how the game would’ve ended. With less than two minutes on the clock, had the call been made all QB Drew Brees would have to do is kneel the ball three times and kick a field goal that a Middle School kicker could make with his eyes closed and the New Orleans Saints would be on their way to their second Superbowl appearance. Pundants have said no game should come down…

The New Orleans Saints primetime match-up against their NFC Division Rival, Atlanta Falcons, just became even more exciting. The Saints Organization will welcome the 2018 Miss Louisiana, Holli Conway, to sing the National Anthem and the Southern University “Human Jukebox” Marching Band will perform at Halftime. With the Bayou Classic Weekend beginning the next day expect massive traffic and tons of social events spread across the weekend. This is not the first time Southern University’s Band has performed during a Saints Game. The relationship between The Saints and Southern has grown over the years and has become sort of a…

Medard Nelson Charter School is under the charter umbrella of the New Beginnings Schools Foundation. Located in the New Orleans 7th Ward / Gentilly area, Nelson has had many odds against it. Taylor says one of the reasons they chose to go to Nelson is because of it’s past struggles. “We chose Nelson because the school received an F score by the state. We shouldn’t all rally around the schools which perform well just so we can be associated with their success. If we are truly concerned about all kids, the community must see where there is a need and…
