Those refs. :cuss: One standing right there and didn't see it?

I doubt if anything comes of this, unless they think about the money could make on ticket sales...

Wild NFL rule allows Roger Goodell to reverse Rams-Saints outcome, but would he actually use it?

The Saints should be the team to be going on. Yes, they are my team and no, this isn't sour grapes. Had they lost all on their own (which they ultimately did in the O/T where they shouldn't have been) I would have been unhappy but OK because you win as team and you lose as team.

They weren't given that opportunity though. The non-call in all likelihood, cost them the game. They were exactly where you want to be at that time in the game. Deep in the opponents end and in control. If that play is called for helmet to helmet or PI, both of which were evident, the Saints get the first down and could have run the clock down to 4 or 5 seconds before kicking the field goal. If you look at what normally gets called for PI in most games, it makes it really hard to understand why none of the officials who could have blown the whistle or come over after the play and discussed it, did anything at all.

The league admits it effed up, the Rams player involved admits it was at least PI but the net result is, the Saints lost but they didn't do it on their own terms and that will live with most of them for a long, long time.

I will say that they should have converted at least one of the first two drives into 7 instead of settling for field goals.

Credit to the Rams kicker, buherlein (sp?) . It aint easy kicking a fifty seven yarder at the best of times but the snap was off a bit and it looked like it would have been good from 65, he really nailed it.

Geaux Saints!!!


impo 2 infractions in same play totally missed & play can't be reviewed.
1) no helmet to helmet call
2) clearly interference
Cost the Saints a trip to SuperBowl LIII

impo Roger Goodell doesn't have the backbone or stones needed to make that call, hopefully I'm wrong.

No, he won't do anything about it. He's useless.

And it gets worse. Watch this video. There are actually 2 refs that can't see a problem. https://247sports.com/nfl/seattle-seaha ... FlBwXNDnpk

If you watch it few times, you can see the Ram throw his arms out when he's walking back to his teammates like, "I dunno man, I thought I'd get called for that too." And watch at the bottom, the Security guy in yellow watching the play on the big screen. He can't stop shaking his head. lol

Not that I am naive enough to believe that the rule will be enacted but I have to ask, why have it on the books at all if it isn't going to be used? If that non-call doesn't qualify as game changing, I don't know what would? I have watched football for decades and I have seen lots of blown calls and bad calls but I have never seen anything like that. Not even close. Two officials within ten feet of the play and nothing. Makes you wonder if they had any skin in the game.

I would think that the conversation has been had though. Goodell, if he didn't know about the rule before, will now. Sean Payton is probably blowing up Goodells phone. I know I would be.

If you look at the still, there's a big clue in it that would indicate that the defender committed a punishable offense, not once, but twice. Look close. OK, you don't have to look that close. Unless you're a referee.

I just watched another video (on facebook, with no link to the outside world...) that shows another ref walk over the line ref and say something right after that hit, the ref on the line waved him off. :-X

I wish I could find another way to share sorry! https://www.facebook.com/nancy.s.hewitt ... 0I&fref=nf

I think Goodall is going to have to answer some questions about this.

There was a video on MSN yesterday that showed the foreground ref turn toward his partner who was a couple yards down field. The second guy was reaching for his flag and the close ref ran a couple steps toward him and waved him off adamantly.

I watched it until I couldn't see through the tears.

Hopefully these 2 ref's (former ref's impo) are treated similarly as Steve Bartman was after the Cub's incident.
