Rampers Egg NO Saints' Charter Upon Arrival At ATL

The Saints and Falcons (who play each other tomorrow night, hence the Saints flying into ATL tonight) may be rivals, but this is still low. Looks like the land of unemployment just gained a few new folks:

Quote:
If you're questioning the intensity of the rivalry between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints, check out this tweet from Saints backup quarterback Chase Daniel. It came just minutes after the team's charter flight touched down in Atlanta on Wednesday night.

@ChaseDaniel: 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!

Saints teammates Jermon Bushrod and Jimmy Graham re-tweeted Daniel's message, which was tweeted at 7:48 p.m. Wednesday.

Graham confirmed Daniel's tweet a few minutes later:

@JimmyGraham: Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! "RISE Up" smh

Linebacker Will Herring also confirmed the incident:

@wherring54 First time my bus has been egged by opposing fans! Tomorrow should be fun!! #WhoDatNation

You stay classy, Hartsfield International.

As a Saints fan, this is quite interesting. Who Dat!!

I wonder if the Saints charter pulled up at a gate, or at the FBO. At ATL, the FBO is on the north edge of the field, near FedEx, off Runway 8L/26R.

I ask this since I've stayed at the Marriott Renaissance Concourse. While there, saw a FL 737 pull up at the FBO, let off a college football team, then taxi over to the gates to presumably return to regularly scheduled service.

The nola.com article says tarmac, but I was just wondering.

Probably because it was the airport staff on the ramp who were throwing said eggs.

My question is, who was operating the charter and whose "ramp workers" were they?




You guys have NO idea what a REAL rivalry is like. Much worse than this happens when the Bears and Packers meet.

Interesting, if they threw eggs at the plane could there be some violation of FAA rules or Federal Law?

Yeah, it made the rounds on the local news down here in New Orleans.

Overall it's pretty classless and juvenile, but not surprising considering some of the people who work at the ATL airport. I have no idea how some of those people got SIDA badges.

Why is this in Civil Aviation?

My guess is that the aircraft parked at Landmark as flight aware doesn't have a gate assigned for that flight.

And sorry, it's actually quite funny, no matter how juvenile it is.

They should be fired. Not only because they lack the integrity and intelligence to refrain from engaging in this behavior while on the ramp, but because they were also too stupid to realize that the busses were from local companies and not the Saints' private vehicles.

Ramp access demands that intelligence and integrity to maintain a secure environment.

The title is misleading, the eggs were thrown at the bus not the chartered aircraft. Its just a little bit of no harm rivalry fun. I think this should be in Non-Av.

More interesting if it was the airplane.

Given what ramper pay has sunk to, this might be a positive career move.

Where were the eggs thrown? On the flightline where they are FOD or elsewhere? For myself, that is a huge difference.

I have no idea who the Bears and Packers are - but I can't imagine rivalry much more intense than I've seen in Newcastle when Manchester United are playing.

Throwing eggs? I've seen them throw park benches at each other.

Care to explain how this is "not surprising" to you? What has happened at ATL compared to other large airports (besides this egg incident of course)? Sorry for my doubt but we all know you love New Orleans, so I'm just wondering if you have genuine articles to back up this statement.
