The death of "Aints"
Posted by LasVegasBandit on 10/19 at 11:07 am
It's really awesome that nobody uses this term to taunt us anymore. I went to the last two games in Chicago and New England - two of the most hostile environments in the NFL, and I don't think I heard this term once. When I used to make the road trips in the Haslett days (or even early in the Payton / Brees era) I'd hear it regularly.

"Aints" kind of bugs me for some reason - I guess because it's a lazy epithet, and also because it was synonymous with our franchise's moribund history. I love that we're so far removed from that nickname... the only people who still use it seem to be New Orleanians themselves after a tough loss or Cowboys/Falcons fans.

When's the last time you heard an opposing fan use "Aints"?

It blows my mind that grown men use aints, cowgirls, failcons, etc. It sounds like something a freaking 10 year old would use.

failcons is the lamest of the lame. It's not clever. At least Aints or Cowgirls make sense.

The bags on the head is also another reference. Just hold the middle finger up and remind them of the one Super Bowl win.

Falcon fans were using it the night we won the SB

It'll never go away -- it's one of the great sports putdowns
