Saints GM Mickey Loomis doesn't believe missed call was intentional


There is another piece of drama being added to the controversy surrounding the January 20 NFC Championship Game and the non-pass interference call against the Los Angeles Rams late in the fourth quarter of the victory over the New Orleans Saints. The cornerback, Nickell Robey-Coleman, should have been flagged for either defensive pass interference or a personal foul against Tommylee Lewis, but the officials neglected to do so on either count.

The call cost them but if the Saints could have taken care of business during overtime this wouldn't even be a talking point.

The play in question happened with less than two minutes left in the game.

At a hearing in Louisiana federal court on Monday, attorneys representing the fans showed a blown-up photo of the controversial play to a crowd outside of the courthouse.

If you follow football, than you know that the majority of the discussions this week have been about how the referees completely blew that pass interference call in the NFC Championship game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints.

That play indeed changed the game, forcing New Orleans to hit a field goal instead of scoring a potential touchdown.

The story that won't go away any time soon is only getting juicier by the day, it seems. The other, still pending in state court, is a class action suit seeking unspecified damages for season-ticket holders. People would be outraged over the National Football League not getting a group of Saints fans - or people who grew up as Saints fans - off the call for the Saints game.

Two lawsuits have been filed. Rams fans were petitioning to get Bill Vinovich and his crew OFF the game because they'd never won with him making the calls before.
