Benjamin Watson Calls On Roger Goodell To Be Leader On Non-Call


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 closest the league has come to publicly admitting that something went wrong on the play came Friday when Robey-Coleman was hit with a $26,000 fine for an illegal helmet-to-helmet hit on Lewis.

Saints head coach Sean Payton has said a league official admitted to him immediately after the game that both penalties should have been called on the play.

Robey-Coleman won't have a problem coughing up the money, considering the hit helped land the Rams in the Super Bowl. I made a football play.

With a guy who won't take responsibility for blowing it, worse than ever before, are you ready to throw him back out there to make calls again before he ever takes responsibility for his mistakes?

Since the 26-23 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Sunday's NFC Championship game, Saints fans have reacted in a number of ways.

"The Super Bowl, the NFL's premiere event, is a carefully planned and enormously expensive undertaking, with preparations carefully sequenced", from logistics to producing a "full-blown music concert at halftime", Siclare wrote.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is slashing down self-described democratic socialist Rep. The last briefing where Ms Sanders took questions from reporters was on December 18.

The pass was incomplete and the Saints were irate that a penalty wasn't called.

"It was simple. They blew the call". "They said not only was it interference, it was helmet-to-helmet".

A U.S. senator wants the National Football League to answer questions over "the most blatant and consequential blown call in National Football League history" - and questioned the allegiance of the official behind it.

Multiple lawsuits have been filed in the aftermath of the non-call, and a number of NFL players have voiced their disbelief and frustration with the league and commissioner Roger Goodell.

Goodell will certainly have to answer for it next week when he gives the traditional Commissioner's press conference leading up to Super Bowl week.

Vinovich was asked about the play by a pool reporter following the game, but at that point, he still hadn't seen a replay of the no-call.
