Rumour that we'll have solid painted endzones this weekend
A little birdie on Poydras has whispered in my ear that with Doug Thornton off due to health reasons, the Superdome krewe was able to paint the endzones solid black for the first time since we'd had the flubber in 2003.

I can tell you that this is 100% not true.

I'm all on team "fill in the end zone"... but I understand why not to

I'm sure the paint needed to do it is specialized and costly... not that money should be a concern for a NFL team

also... I've heard of players previously complaining that the paint can sometimes be slick and slippery... and we don't need players concerning themselves with the footing on the field.

1 way to not worry about that the slippery part is to originally make the field with the markings already on it so you don't need paint... like they do in Jerry World or Metlife

the issue with that is the Saints rip up the field at the end of every season (something about electrical connections being in the floor that's needed for parades and concerts and whatnot... I believe most other stadiums just cover the turf with flooring when it's not needed )... so you're essentially asking to use at least 2 different fields that will have to be redone every single year

FWIW... the Falcons first home game this season... they had given their end zones the full color treatment... but yesterday it was just the art with no back fill

Falcons need to hook us up with that secret “non slip” paint, mates

Mate I’ve been hooked up by a vendor with row 10 seats behind the Saints bench. You may see me on tv tomorrow

I’ll look out for you - were you there on that fateful Monday night when our outraged fans tossed 20oz bottles of lager onto the pitch after a disappointing call from the referees?

I remember most vividly the beautiful way the soapy suds of cheap American beer glistened against the black and light orange paint on our beautiful solid coloured endzone

Please send me an SMS text message if the endzones are indeed solid colours when you arrive at the fixture.

As a kid, I loved those end zones.


Hopefully you are correct.

I cant believe the Washington Football Team is still allowed those racist helmets in the video games!!

I’m 1/32 Native American (a tad more than Warren btw) & this is very hurtful to me. I’m gonna go ahead & have to ask you to take that pic down b4 the Lawyers have to get involved!!
