New, comments

Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis will speak with the media Thursday night to open 2014 New Orleans Saints Training Camp. Loomis will speak at 4:45 pm CT and Payton will go at 5 pm CT. Follow the link below to the Saints' website to watch live. This Who Dat is anxious to know what Payton thinks of the pink, flowery walls and ceilings in the players' rooms at The Greenbrier. Was this somehow part of yet another Sean Payton master plan to get his players better prepared for another tough season ahead? Wait, ...pink? Pink is the color of John McCain's cheeks. McCain is an Arizona senator. Arizona is where this season's Super Bowl will take place! It all makes sense! Sean Payton truly is a genius!!
