It sounds like you're on board....now we just have to prove it somehow. We are on to Roger Godhell's tactics.

Yes.

Last year vs Pittsburgh. 2 tick-tacky pass interference calls on Joe Haden that went our way resulting in 14 points.

The first one happened in the first quarter and resulted in a touchdown. It was the long pass to Kamara which put us first and goal. Kamara was barely touched and the PI was questionable.

The second one and the more serious one, happened on the game winning drive. And we desperately needed that call to go our way to just barely squeak that game out. It didn't look like PI to me, or many other people that pointed it out.

Steelers fans were angry as hell over the second one and I am also 99.9% that had it been us receiving those PI calls, the majority of our fan base would be screaming their heads off that it was rigged and coming up with Alex Jones level conspiracy nonsense to pretend Roger Goodell could actually pull off something so precise and calculated to screw us.

We've had stuff go our way, we just choose to overlook it while exhausting our sympathies with victimhood. Seriously... ask yourself if Roger Goodell is truly competent enough to pull of some elaborate conspiracy to screw us. The guy can't go a month without some controversy in his league.

Somebody should be fired for that clock screw up. It's like nobody's ever held accountable for how lousy the refs are.

Maybe someone's even rewarded? It's been so commonplace, as long as I've followed the Saints, that if it comes down to officiating, Saints are gonna come out on the short end...

...and eventually it's hard to suppress thoughts that maybe it's intentional...

...my support for the lawsuit vs Goodell was to see him deposed and discover the secretive, non-transparent methodology the league uses for game scheduling, officiating assignments, and performance review...

What we have here is a pattern of behavior over time.

Those are judgement calls. Im talking refs ignoring rules calls. You could say last years non call PI on the Rams is a judgement call but I challenge you to say that with a straight face. Not to mention the multiple targeting calls they missed with the main one being on that same play. Im usually against blaming the refs but damn. How many more times until it becomes normal.
