Roddy White takes aim at the Saints and the city of New Orleans

The Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints don’t like each other…not even a little bit. The rivalry will play out another chapter this weekend when the teams square off at the Mercedes Benz Super Dome in Louisiana.

Former Falcons middle linebacker Curtis Lofton will face his former team for the first time since the Falcons let him walk into free agency for a big money deal.

That would normally be the headline except for the fact that Pro Bowl wide receiver Roddy White has stepped up to once again to fan-the-flames of the war by selling a few pre-game wolf tickets.

In an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, White took aim at the team and the city as a whole while showing a smidgen of love for the team’s fans.

“It’s just a special atmosphere when we play these guys,” White said.  “The game is so intense. We want to win. They want to win. They have won the division two out of the last three years. We won it the other year.”

“For the last couple of years, it’s been us and them down to the wire. I think that’s what it is and the dislike for each other.”

“I don’t like nothing about the Saints. The colors. The city. Nothing. But they’ve got some good food though. Other than the food, nothing.”

“At that stadium, it’s just that the people dress up in all kinds of costumes. They come out there partying like it’s a club or something. That’s the other thing I like, their fans really get into the game.”

New Orleans may be down right now but the Falcons are not treating this matchup as a pushover game.
