The New Orleans Saints players are not the only ones going to be in a battle today. The fans will be battling right alongside them.
The Mercedes-Benz Superdome may be the loudest it’s been all season on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers make their way into New Orleans. With the New Orleans Saints already having one of the best and loudest fan bases in the entire NFL, the dome is typically always loud.
However, it has been rumored that the 49ers fans are some of the best at traveling.
If there is over 25% of the dome filled with San Francisco 49ers fans, New Orleans fans can expect an all-out fan cheering war. Saints fans all over New Orleans began preparing for today’s festivities long for about a week.
They are encouraging each other to do everything they can from not selling tickets to known 49ers fans to not drinking last night in preparation to have a full voice today.
The battle for the NFC may be happening today, but the Saints’ and 49ers’ fans have been going at each other since last week. It all starts with a little social media bantering and then makes its way into who can take over the dome today in New Orleans.
Just to put it in a little perspective Friday night there was a 49ers’ meet up at a local bar in NOLA. This event saw more opposing fans than the Saints’ have seen all season. There was a “sea of red” all night long.
It is safe to say that it is more important today then it has been all year that New Orleans Saints fans show up and show loud. We can not let the 49ers think they have a “home game.” Drew Brees made a statement to all Saints’ fans regarding today’s game.
He said, “Everybody knows to get loud when they walk up to the line of scrimmage, but even before that. Get loud right as you see the opposing quarterback get in the huddle. Make it hard for them to communicate, hard for them every step of the way.”
Saints’ fans will play an important role in the game today. It is our responsibility to make sure we put the entire NFL on watch today. The New Orleans Saints and the city of New Orleans have the best sports fans in the nation! Who Dat Nation will rise to the top!
