The rivalry between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons has always been a nasty one, but now it seems that things have reached new – and immature levels. Shortly after the Saints landed in Atlanta, their team bus was egged by airport workers as it pulled off the tarmac. This, according to tweets (and retweets) by numerous Saints players on Wednesday night.

Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been vocal about his disdain for the city of New Orleans. Earlier this season, Saints linebacker Scott Shanle referred to the Falcons as “our little brothers” and “classless” in an interview with Yahoo! Sports. This most recent event only adds a new chapter to the rivalry that continues to grow between these two NFL South rivals. Of course, Falcons fans think “it’s cool.”

Currently sitting at 5-6, the Saints handed the Falcons their only loss of the season three weeks ago at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Tomorrow night, the two teams face off again – this time, on Atlanta’s home turf. To me, this will only “egg on” the competitive rivalry between these two teams.
