The Saints ranked first in two specific categories: gameday satisfaction and game entertainment. And they ranked in the top 10 of five other categories: gameday staff, safety and security, departure, arrival and merchandise. "This ranking is merely a reflection of all the incredible people that work for our organization, our fans, local law enforcement, and the SMG staff," Saints president Dennis Lauscha said in a statement. "We take great pride in creating an atmosphere in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that is unmatched in the National Football League and that starts the moment fans arrive on gameday."

The NFL clarified that commissioner Roger Goodell has not talked to Saints players -- and that he was not claiming he talked to players during his Wednesday press conference. Although it sounded like Goodell said he spoke to Saints coach Sean Payton, the team and the players after the controversial no-call that helped decide the NFC Championship Game, the NFL explained that Goodell was just listing all of the groups that he knows are frustrated. And when you read the league's official transcript that was produced after Goodell spoke (specifically the punctuation that they used), you can see the other possible interpretation of his comments: “Listen, we understand the frustration of the fans. I've talked to Coach Payton. The team, the players, we understand the frustration they feel right now, and we certainly want to address that.” ... It remains to be seen if the league's explanation will appease players like Saints receiver Michael Thomas, who immediately tweeted, “He ain't talk to us” during Goodell's press conference -- after Thomas spent last week demanding that Goodell “pick up the phone.” Or former Saints offensive lineman/current radio analyst Zach Strief, who accused Goodell of lying to everybody by claiming he talked to players.
