The Saints arrived in Atlanta last night for their Thursday Night game against the Falcons and were welcomed by a barrage of eggs. The Saints’ players excited the plane and boarded the team bus which was headed to their hotel. That’s where Falcons fans treated their bus like it was a Dean’s house on Halloween.
Jimmy Graham, Chase Daniels, and other players took to twitter to express their feelings about the situation:
Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! “RISE Up” smh

Wow, as we’re boarding buses on the Tarmac @ Atlanta airport, we start getting eggs thrown @ us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!

Many players felt as though this was done by employees at the airport and there’s currently an investigation looking into the events. This incident is just one of the many story lines in what is quickly becoming one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL.
