Saints fan trolls Falcons over SB loss with cleverly calculated tip (pic)
A New Orleans Saints fan utilized a cleverly calculated tip to troll the Atlanta Falcons over the team’s historic and heartbreaking loss in Super Bowl LI.
The Falcons of course blew a 28-3 third-quarter lead last February, ultimately losing to the New England Patriots in overtime by a score of 34-28 in stunning fashion.
Well, some snarky Saints fan who happened to be dining out at an Atlanta restaurant decided to calculate his gratuity in such a manner to become the latest wisenheimer to troll the Falcons over the historic blown lead.

Boom. Roasted. The patented “WHO DAT” message of course was especially fitting.
One could argue that any Falcons fans at said restaurant could put the Saints fan in his place by simply stating, “Well, at least we made it to the Super Bowl.” The Saints, after all, have posted three consecutive 7-9 records and haven’t sniffed the postseason since 2013.
Then again, a fitting retort to that barb would be that the Saints actually won when they made it all the way, beating the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV back in 2010. The Falcons have lost both times the team has made it to the Super Bowl, following the 1998 NFL season and again last year.
That said, it warrants mentioning this isn’t the first time in the recent past that Saints fans have gone all-in on trolling their NFC South rivals.
New Orleans T-shirt company Dirty Coast recently launched a campaign to get the following billboard erected near the Falcons’ new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Cold-blooded. Suffice to say, don’t expect the “28-3” trolling to end anytime soon.
