The Saints charter bus was egged by airport workers after the team arrived in Atlanta in advance of tonight's game against the Falcons, Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Backup quarterback Chase Daniels tweeted, "Wow, as we're boarding buses on the Tarmac @ Atlanta airport, we start getting eggs thrown @ us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!"
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham confirmed what Daniels said on twitter by tweeting, "Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! "RISE Up" smh."
Linebacker Will Herring also tweeted, "First time my bus has been egged by opposing fans! Tomorrow should be fun!! #WhoDatNation."
After the Saints' 31-27 victory on Nov. 11, Saints linebacker Scott Shanle referred to the Falcons as "our little brothers" in an interview with Yahoo!Sports and called their pregame actions in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that day "classless."
Leading up to the game, Falcons wide receiver Roddy White told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "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." Source: The Redzone Attached Thumbnails
