Saints tweet that bus egged at Atlanta airport

ATLANTA — The New Orleans Saints players say their bus was pelted with eggs by airport workers after they touched down in Atlanta.

Tight end Jimmy Graham, linebacker Will Herring and quarterback Chase Daniel tweeted about the incident Wednesday night at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The Saints (5-6) face the first-place Falcons (10-1) Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. New Orleans won the first meeting between the longtime rivals, 31-27 on Nov. 11.

Graham wrote on Twitter: "Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy!"

Daniel tweeted, "Wow ... we start getting eggs thrown (at) us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!"

Herring seems amused by the incident.

"First time my bus has been egged by opposing fans!" he tweeted. The game "should be fun!!"

I guess this is how Dirty Birds "Rise UP." This is really a disgrace to the NFL for such conduct. I wonder what the Falcons wold do if the Saint's fans did it to their team? I could picture Rodney White having a heart attack with all the trash talk coming from his filthy ghetto mouth. He should be fined for hurting the team's respect. Surprised Ryan isn't opening his mouth about him. Maybe its the whole team that condones that sort of thing.
