Re: Saints lose Super Bowl trip to Rams after controversial no-call; NFL says "We messed it up"

From the "This will never happen department"....

REPORT: NFL rule allows Commissioner Roger Goodell to reverse outcome of Saints-Rams game

REPORT: NFL rule allows Commissioner Roger Goodell to reverse outcome of Saints-Rams game

NFL Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1.

The rule reads:

The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game.

Shutdown defense in 2017 = Championship!

Re: Saints lose Super Bowl trip to Rams after controversial no-call; NFL says "We messed it up"

They messed up decades ago when they decided their refs didn't need to be full time employees and didn't need to spend the offseason practicing.

This is a multi Billion dollar industry that just refuses to spend a little extra money and have professional referees. Ref's salaries are already crazy high but more than half of them have full time jobs outside of the NFL. Yet those same refs spent years NOT knowing what a catch is, they've spent the last few seasons not knowing what roughing the passer is. They miss holding calls every single play, every single one.

It's amazing that people can be so bad at their jobs and yet nothing gets done about it year after year.
