  • ‘We will not forget it’: Louisiana governor pens scathing letter to NFL after Saints loss

Haydel said fans were looking forward to a Saints Super Bowl in Atlanta, and a boycott of the game is the best response the Who Dat Nation can give.

The NFL said Rams defensive back Nickell Roby-Coleman has been fined more than $26,000 for the hit on Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis, according to Adam Schefter.

Yes, some Saints supporters are still so incensed about the pass interference non-call against the Rams last weekend that they're refusing to watch Los Angeles take on the Patriots in this year's Super Bowl.

The owner of a locksmith shop has hung posters and signs taking aim at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and some residents have hung posters of a referee wearing a blindfold.

Retiring New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson strongly criticized NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday for his public silence following a blown call in the NFC championship game.


This news is sure to upset Saints fans even more.

- An online petition has started on Change.org calling for a rematch between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The news is interesting because the fine is a result of a very controversial non-call that came late in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. "From the locker room to Park Ave, accountability is what makes our league great". It was a clear pass interference that would have put the Saints in a position to score a touchdown to put the game away, but instead they had to settle for a field goal because of the no-call. "Lead by example. We are waiting", Watson wrote in his note.

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.

It is customary for Goodell to meet with the media the week of the Super Bowl to provide an update on the state of the National Football League, and it will be interesting to see what his response will be to this big controversy.
