BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - To say this past Sunday’s championship game left us all disappointed by the outcome would be an understatement.

However, we were inspired by Saints owner Gayle Benson’s statement.

"The truth is we are more than team and fans - we are a family,” Benson said.

She promises to aggressively pursue changes in NFL policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again.

“While the way this season ended has left us all frustrated and disappointed, I am comforted knowing we will respond the way our community always responds - with resilience, fierce determination, and love for each other and the Saints,” she added.

So many of you commented on your support and love for the Saints. Debra Breland Young wrote:

That was Debra’s turn. Now, it’s yours.
