In an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Falcons WR Roddy White took aim at the Saints and the city of New Orleans as a whole while showing a smidgen of love for the team’s fans.

“It’s just a special atmosphere when we play these guys,” White said. “The game is so intense. We want to win. They want to win. They have won the division two out of the last three years. We won it the other year.”

“For the last couple of years, it’s been us and them down to the wire. I think that’s what it is and the dislike for each other.”

“I don’t like nothing about the Saints. The colors. The city. Nothing. But they’ve got some good food though. Other than the food, nothing.”

“At that stadium, it’s just that the people dress up in all kinds of costumes. They come out there partying like it’s a club or something. That’s the other thing I like, their fans really get into the game.”

I see nothing wrong with his comments. Not half as bad as mullet boy from Minny or Danny Noonan back in the 80's.

He is complementing the fans. He doesn't like a division rival? How is that "ripping"?

HE didn't rip Nola. He complimented the people and the food. He just had to say he didn't like the football team. They are rivals. Terrible headline.

He bashed us while also complimenting us...that was the weakest "rip "ever...

HATE THIS TITLE! It's obvious Roddy was trying to act like he doesn't like the Saints but actually shows nothing but respect for the team and city.

He was a class act. Then this thread title is low-brow crap.

He is just pissed the Saints have won 10 of the last 12.

Love the Saints, but I'm always stoked when any of my players on FF play against them. I got Roddy White.

That's yellowing what he said a little bit to get hits, don't you think?

Larry Leo is turning into another Chris Chase.

So how is that ripping New Orleans at all?

Sounds like he compliments them a lot actually.

Good reporting
