Saints TE Ben Watson Eloquently Calls Out Roger Goodell

Saints TE Ben Watson #82

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell still has not released an official statement regarding the controversial finish to the NFC Championship Game, but the league has announced a fine against Los Angeles Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman, who was at the center of the chaos.

It was Friday afternoon on C-SPAN when some senators began discussing, not the ongoing government shutdown, but the non-call pass interference in the NFC Championship game that caused the Saints to lose in overtime.

The NFL all but acknowledged the bad call however, fining Robey-Coleman $26,739 for an illegal hit earlier this week. On third-and-10, just 13 yards from the end zone, Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw a pass to Lewis, but Robey-Coleman laid him out before the ball arrived.

A flag for pass interference would have given the Saints a first down, and New Orleans would have had a new set of downs and a chance to run the clock down before attempting a short field goal with less than 20 seconds remaining. "I personally have not seen the play". "I think you just make all those major calls like that reviewable and just got from there".

The Governor expressed deep disappointment for the people of Louisiana and reminded the Commissioner that while fans would eventually move past the game, "we will not forget it". But no penalty was called, forcing the Saints to kick a field goal with 1:45 left in the game.

Knox said in a statement . "Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!" he wrote. Sanders has said it makes more sense for the public to hear from the president himself.

With the league refusing to release a statement on the matter, that should make things interesting for next week, when Roger Goodell is scheduled to meet with the media for his annual Super Bowl week press conference (Jan. 30). Darrell Guillory filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of all ticket-holders against the NFL. Instead, the Rams are going to their first Super Bowl in 17 years after they drove for a tying field goal and an overtime victor.

They're not done talking about it in New Orleans, however. Los Angeles would then win it in the extra period, 26-23.

"It was simple. They blew the call".

"That's how we'll really stick it to them where it hurts", she said. "That's the way the game has been played for a long time".
