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"?
