Continuing continuing coverage now the State's big Super Bowl -- live in the French Quarter in New Orleans and the debate between the NFL and the saints fans.
And that -- that slogan seems to have cooled down -- gone away the league ordered several local retailers to stop selling merchandise for that phrase on it.
The NFL claimed it owned -- exclusive trademark right.
But the Louisiana senator David bitter jumped into this controversy is city one from -- detonation would and asked the in -- mr.
What they can do about this what he called ridiculous position while the NFL now says the -- OK to use just so long as it's not used alongside the -- logo.
Whatever -- -- now is Republican senator David -- Louisiana thank you.
Great to be with you Jabber it's open to that nation thank you very much I -- for awhile like that -- -- those -- up everything but.
Yeah word parade there was -- ridiculous possession.
And as soon as I sent a letter and they focused on I think they realize what a complete.
He yard gap that made so they backed up completely and -- that still resides in that nation un body that.
Nation some of the people who work in buildings in the northeast of the United States -- like okay somebody won a Super Bowl.
Why this city bigger deal than it was last you have like you have to trust me.
Yeah this is much bigger than a Super Bowl win it's even much bigger than a team winning for the first time this is almost like a spiritual revival.
You know the saints had lost for so long that a lot of us and our sub conscious.
Question whether we could be winners and then Katrina came.
And that people question whether we would never retail and the saints would ever come back of this victory the Super Bowl victory answers all.
In resounding ten.
So the fans you know -- I remember sitting in excess of 35 fail ten freeway.
And it all flooded and it was days later it well it was days later.
And my buddy Patrick Butler now we're watching them and saying I can't imagine anybody's ever in that building again or even able to get into that building.
And what was done here to see something of a mirror.
And again this victory wrapped presents recovery from all about.
Recovery from a mindset recovery from that devastation.
Becoming winners taking care of ourselves that's alliance even.
So much more than a Super Bowl victory.
And that's not to say the problems that ended here there a lot of neighborhoods -- still have huge problem.
Absolutely and this work will continue for years but we're on our way and we have a -- spirit and and again a lot of people really believe as I do that the saints were a team of destiny a team of fate and -- recovery in our culture is about that too.
You know if nothing else it gives people a place to wrap themselves doesn't it I don't think people may be everywhere understand that this this place has -- sort of I don't know it has a thing other cities don't there's -- -- there's blood to blood running through this you know what image.
Absolutely and that's that's ridiculous term through that.
Captures all of that into words.
And it unifies the whole region into words I've been in other cities where we -- the rules as in New York everyone -- -- there.
And sure there's celebrations going on.
But here it's every corner every business every store every person if Florida laser and everything it seems to have really taken -- absolutely and like I say this and just a football victory -- almost spiritual revival how are you gonna be able to continue this continued this emotion and it.
Especially through -- -- and once we get past Marty.
Well of course it won't last like this forever but I hope the unity.
The focus on on winning confidence in ourselves I think that will last hope -- -- it's -- -- I think.
