Saints News, 10/26/15: Saints Game Taken off air by FOX, Leaving Fans in the Dark

The FOX Network SUCKS and here's why - They elected to switch games for many audiences outside of New Orleans with the Saints leading 27-0, even with lots of time left in the game. The Colts promptly scored two touchdowns on long passes, tightening the game considerably. When other early games completed and there was still around 8:00 left in the Saints/Colts game, they refused to switch back. Yesterday was all about the NFC East for them. They have no respect for fans and proved it yesterday.
