Falcons Video disses Saints

15 posts in this topic

Maybe I missed this but NOLA.com wrote a story about this this week:

 

 

“How low will the Atlanta Falcons go to malign the New Orleans Saints? A promotional video has resurfaced that proves the dirty birds’ well of bile has no bottom.

The insidiously clever animation was first released in April to accompany the announcement of the Falcon’s 2019 schedule. But it has popped up yet again as the Falcons prepare to face the Saints for the first time this year on Sunday (Nov. 10).

The video’s CGI is modeled on the mechanical landscape animation that introduces the popular television fantasy “Game of Thrones.” Which was unknowingly appropriate since, like the plot of “Game of Thrones,” the Falcon’s 2019 season has largely been a series of catastrophes.

 
During the despicable video, a New Orleans brass band marches innocently toward the Superdome. Suddenly a galloping ram appears out of nowhere and flattens one of the musicians. The victim’s saxophone skitters away on the pavement. A referee trots onto the scene. But, despite the ram’s obvious guilt, the ref refuses to toss a flag.
 

No Who Dat could miss the poisonous allusion to the 2019 NFC Championship Game in which a judgment-impaired official robbed the Saints of victory in favor of the Los Angeles Rams.

The video demonstrates the Falcon’s unhealthy obsession with the Saints yet again by singling them out for abuse. As far as we can ascertain, no other NFL clubs were similarly satirized. 

The admittedly entertaining, yet totally toxic video concludes with images of a cackling robotic falcon (that looks like a wet pigeon) meant to mirror a GOT flying dragon, and an aerial view of Atlanta’s copycat-named Mercedes-Benz Stadium with the big hole in the roof.

Actually, I thought it was funny...

 

gotta have a sense of humor, y'all   :)

 

NOLA.com seemed to stir it up as controversial.


I thought it was humorous .... and basically validated the no-call, sort of admitting the Saints got screwed.    Or you could say coming from the Falcons, they were making fun of our misery.   Since the video is directed at Falcons ticket holders for the upcoming season, it was probably made around the time the No-Call was big news.

Saints trolled the Falcons on the scoreboard during the 4th Quarter, showing the 3-28 debacle, along with the Gleason block, (with Gleason in attendance), while at the same time the Saints were getting this asses kicked on the field... they showed a still of the video which was the subject of this thread... and said “don’t troll on what is done to you as opposed to what you do to yourself”...

I thought it was in poor taste and the timing could not have been worse ...

I agree with you. The us vs. them is all good fun and the Falcons version should have a little extra sauce on it. But it was really awkward, especially given the score and the point in the game.
