Atlanta Falcons show little enthusiasm(or class) in Steve Gleason statue participation

Also, Varney reported that the Saints made numerous attempts to get permission to use the logo from the Falcons and even sought to get owner Arthur Blank’s approval.  Varney added:

The Falcons told the Saints that appeal had been made, but it remained unclear if Blank personally forbid the use of the trademarks or if underlings simply brushed aside the request from a division rival.

Whatever the case may be in either scenario, the Falcons showed nothing in the way of helping the request.  To borrow from CBSSports.com’s Pete Prisco, it’s a little “classless” of the Falcons since the statue isn’t meant to mock them in any shape or fashion.

They were simply the wrong team, in the wrong place, at the wrong time.  The exact opposite can said for the city of New Orleans, the Saints, and of course Steve Gleason.
