Robey-Coleman admitted he briefly thought the flag would come out but said that an official on the field told him he suspected the ball was tipped, which replays clearly showed was not the case. And on Thursday, Saints tight end Benjamin Watson sent out a pretty scathing statement on Twitter directed at Goodell.
Attorney Frank D'Amico Jr. cited an NFL rule that would allow NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to change the outcome of the game. The Saints were forced to kick a field goal instead of getting an automatic first down if a penalty was called.
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".
Has anyone in New Orleans gotten over the infamous no-call involving the Saints in the NFC Championship game? From the locker room to Park Ave., accountability is what makes our league great.
Since Sunday's Superdome Screwjob that kept New Orleans out of Super Bowl XLIII, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has gone silent.
"We're angry", said Lauren Haydel, a Saints fan and business owner who has started printing and selling T-shirts featuring a referee voodoo doll with pins sticking out of it from her Fleurty Girl retail stores. "Lead by example, " Watson wrote. There's nothing that can be done about the loss now, but Watson absolutely has a point in that the National Football League should've said more on the awful call.
The loss has to be gutting to Watson in particular given that he had previously announced that he was going to retire after the 2018 season.
