I'd say that New Orleans is about as non-Mormon a city as you're likely to find. (I'm sure there are Mormons there, just that the city's attitudes are distinctly opposite from Mormon attitudes)
The team is named the Saints due to the popularity of the song When the Saints Go Marching In in New Orleans.
Are Mormons/Latter-day Saints fundamentalists?
Mormons are not typically considered to be fundamentalists.
The term "fundamentalism" is typically associated in the US with American Protestantism.
The following definition is one of four from dictionary.com:

1.(sometimes initial capital letter) a movement in American Protestantism that arose in the early part of the 20th century in reaction to modernism and that stresses the infallibility of the Bible not only in matters of faith and morals but also as a literal historical record, holding as essential to Christian faith belief in such doctrines as the creation of the world, the virgin birth, physical resurrection, atonement by the sacrificial death of Christ, and the Second Coming.
2.the beliefs held by those in this movement.
3.strict adherence to any set of basic ideas or principles: the fundamentalism of the extreme conservatives.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints do not consider themselves to be a Protestant religion. The following is from Wikipedia:
"Latter-day Saints regard Jesus Christ as the head of their church and count themselves as Christians, but do not consider themselves part of the Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant traditions. Rather, they believe the church to be the restoration of the original church established by Jesus Christ on Earth."
And, the LDS church is not typically considered to be a cult by mainstream society, although it is considered a fringe christian religion by many other christians.
What da **** is a mormon????
A "Mormon" is a nickname for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, there are also off-shoots of the LDS church - like RLDS, FLDS, and some people also call them "mormons" but they should not be confused with LDS members because their beliefs differ...
Anyways, I am not sure how the religion sounds like a scam... Jo actually has it pretty close to right. We believe we pre-existed as spirit children of Heavenly Father (and Mother), we chose to come to earth to gain a body, have mortal experiences, learn, grow, die, and eventually have the chance to become like our Heavenly Father. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Only Begotten in the flesh, and that Christ came to earth to fulfill all law and redeem mankind from death and sin. We believe the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and we learn from it, the bible, the D&C, the Pearl of Great Price and any other spiritually uplifting books. We believe after Christ died and all His apostles died also, that the true gospel, along with the Priesthood, was lost from the earth. We believe the true gospel was restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith by the power of Almighty God. We are just normal people trying to live the gospel.
