Since last Sunday, which was a great day of football by the way. That day proved why the NFL rules. Drama, excitement, controversy, down to the last second heroics… goats and hero’s and the GOAT, doesn’t get a whole lot better. Now, to the call in New Orleans that cost the Saints a trip to the Super Bowl. It’s a terrible non call of a clear interference penalty. We Were Robbed New Orleans NOLA Football. The Saints got robbed, pure and simple. To those who say…”quit whining, they had plenty of opportunity to win it in overtime” or “they blew their chances when they didn’t score TD’s early in the game when they were on the goal line.” Good points all, BUT, would you be saying the same thing if the interference call would have been made and the Saints won the game? NOOOO…you’d be saying, “The Saints were the better team, it shouldn’ have even have been that close.”

I agree that a lot of plays during the course of a game decide it. Those plays may happen in the 2nd or 3rd quarters…and while those plays are important, when the game is on the line in the final seconds, those plays are magnified and they matter more. That’s why the non call was so awful. With a correct call, it would have determined the winner. As it happened the game went to overtime when it shouldn’t have… New Orleans, while they had their chance in overtime failed to score and the Rams did and the game went to the Rams. Get We Were Robbed New Orleans NOLA Football shirt. The problem is overtime should have never happened. WHEN it happens in a game is important. Ask the kicker who makes 4 of 5 on the day but his fifth is in the last seconds and he misses to cost his team the game. When it’s crunch time you have to be at your best… the official in the Saints game clearly wasn’t, and it cost a team a trip to the Super Bowl.
