Vilma's Tweet: Lofton, Chamberlain Welcome To Saints vs. World, Helluva Ride
Written by 

Welcome Curtis Lofton and Chris Chamberlain, said a tweet today from Jon Vilma.

Nice.


Jonathan Vilma is the New Orleans Saint linebacker who quarterbacks the defense and who allegedly offered $10,000 to take out then-Viking quarterback Brett Favre in the New Orleans-Minnesota Championship game.

Vilma was a player named in the NFL press release and some expect that he could be punished as part of the Bountygate fallout.

Curtis Lofton, a linebacker and Chris Chamberlain are new additions to the Saints defense which is now under a new defensive coach Steve Spagnuolo who replaced the now St. Louis Ram and infamous-suspended coach Gregg Williams,  who masterminded the Saints Bounty scheme.

There have been reports that Lofton could step into Vilma’s shoes this year either due to Vilma playing elsewhere, being suspended or simply not playing.

But, according to The Times-Picayune, Vilma's standing with the Saints has not changed, Loomis said.

"(Vilma) is still a big part of our team. A top player and leader for us," Loomis said, 

Vilma’s welcoming mat also contained a warning of sorts.

The tweet said “It’s the Saints vs. the world so “strap in tight bc it’s gona b 1 helluva ride”

With so much uncertainty on the Saints with its head coach Sean Payton being suspended, with the team being the target of anger and with their all-world quarterback Drew Brees not signed, helluva ride could be an understatement indeed.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
