Saints say cool it at the Airport.....

The Saints issued a plea to the "Best Fans in the NFL" on Friday, asking them to hold back their enthusiasm while welcoming the team home after road games at the airport, citing safety and security issues.

Here's the full message, which was signed by Owner Tom Benson, Coach Sean Payton, General Manager Mickey Loomis and quarterback Drew Brees.

"One of the highlights of returning home after a road game is seeing our fans at the airport. It has become a great Saints tradition, unique among NFL teams.

"In recent weeks, the number of people lining the streets at the airport has grown to the point where it is now a safety issue. With that said, we need to recognize the potential dangers of having small children on very crowded streets with moving vehicles.

"We are asking that all of our great fans refrain from approaching the cars of Saints players and officials as they depart the airport. And we please ask that you also refrain from seeking autographs as the players depart.

"We salute your passion for our team and thank you for your understanding and continued support!!"
