Is it to commemorate something or is it something like the Steelers/Jets do? It's a nice logo, but if it's like the Steelers/Jets for just extra logo space, it's a little too much.

I think it clutters things up to put the patch on the left breast, when they just as easily could have swapped out the helmet logo on the sleeves and replaced it with the Louisiana patch.

The Saints had a Louisiana-shaped patch on the sleeves* in the 80's.

I figured they went with this patch placement for 2006 for a couple of reasons.

> The replicas are easier to re-create with the fleur-de-lis on the sleeves, as opposed to the Louisiana patch on the sleeves.

> The breast placement is definitely more prominent, and perhaps a nod towards asserting that the Saints are indeed still Louisiana's, flying in the face of all the moving rumors.

*yep, saw where I goofed when Survival79 quoted me ...

Unless this patch commerated something, they need to toss it. more likely it is Tom Benson kissing up to Louisiana for talking of moving the team last year. With logos on the sleeve, their is no reason to add it to the chest.

The state of Louisiana apologizes for looking like a foot...

No we don't. You need to take it up with John Quincy Adams and Thomas Jefferson (Who set up the boundaries for the state).

Of course, being of the geographically-inclined ilk, I still want to know how inebriated you have to be to design that logo, as to say it has a passing resemblance to the state is an insilt to passing resemblances. Though, amusingly enough, the placement of the star puts New Orleans somewhere on the edge of Barataria Bay. Perhaps the coastal erosion folks were onto something...

I was at the game last night and will post pics soon. I was surprised to see them resurrect the old state-shaped logo, which I always hated. If they decided on a patch, why not a newly-designed one for Katrina or whatever? Well, probably because Tom Benson's cheap.

Anyway, Bush just looked electric out there. Brees was tentative but that's to be expected. Deuce looked very thin, more like his first year or two in the league when he was tearing off 60 and 70 yard runs. Seemed like he bulked up the last couple of years and wasn't as fast.

As stated previously, pics soon.

Man, looking at buckeyes's Paint rendition of the patch, and then looking back up at the actual patch - that patch does a major disservice to the geography of Louisiana. It looks like Louisiana as hand-rendered in colored pencil for a 6th-grade geography class. Fix that!
