Saints Fan Harry Connick Jr. Boycotts Super Bowl over Bad Officiating

Todd Gurley trolls Saints fans after Rams win with a fake jersey exchange with ref

"I don't know if there was ever more obvious pass interference", Saints coach Sean Payton said. Cormier, a Louisiana native and Saints fan, pretty much echoed the internet with his take on the play (via Twitter).

Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman acknowledged after the game he should have been flagged for a penalty.

The Rams will head on to Atlanta to face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, while the Saints will lament a swallowed whistle and a missed opportunity.

Playing in one of the NFL's most intimidating road environments, the Rams rallied from an early 13-0 deficit. I guess New Orleans vs Kansas City doesn't sound as sexyI'm so salty right now!

Rams coach Sean McVay, now headed to his first Super Bowl at age 32, was less inclined to scrutinize the call publicly. "This was the road to the Super Bowl". Los Angeles ultimately won in overtime. I know he is proud of this team and our fans.

'Flawless' Halep on Serena Showdown
She will need that confidence more than ever against Serena, a player Halep has beaten only once in nine attempts in her career. John McEnroe and Chrissie Evert share their thoughts on Serena Williams' easy victory over Dayana Yastremska .

Some are also calling for changes after what they say is the biggest blown call in the NFL's history. New Orleans got out to a 20-10 lead on their first possession of the third quarter, but Los Angeles responded with drive of their own, capped off by a Tyler Higbee one-yard touchdown reception from Jared Goff.

If the pass interference penalty had been called, the Saints could've run most of the time off the clock to set up a winning field goal from chip-shot range.

Lawyer Frank D'Amico filed a civil suit in New Orleans on behalf of Saints season-ticket holders which could theoretically make Goodell invoke NFL Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1 and compel both teams to return to New Orleans to replay the end of the game.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter.

The NFL admitted it missed the call, but that does little for Saints fans or their backers. Appearing to refer to a key noncall late in the Saints' loss Sunday to the Rams in the NFC championship game, Gayle Benson declared her intention to "aggressively pursue changes in National Football League policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again".
