Whether the call was overturned isn't the thing that drives me with rage, it's the fact that they couldn't even take the time to look at it.

And they never were...

That ole' feeling started for me when the NFL offices denied the Saints request for the color rush jerseys...

While the color rush is not my favorite, though I like theirs best of all the league, when the league denies you something they initially pushed gave me pause...

The call, or non-call, that p*ssed me off most was when Kamara was in the grasp of a tackle and another Viking took a head-shot...

And this has happened before and yet it keeps happening; is Payton sending this film in to lobby pre-game as other teams do or neaux?

That's rather subjective, which is the difficulty with these calls.

...and Aikman was like "that was a clean hit with the shoulder"

a. Rhodes hit Kamara's head with his helmet, not his shoulder

b. You aren't allowed to target the other player's head even if you lead with the shoulder

There was nothing difficult about that call yesterday though. That was the textbook definition and should have at least warranted a look. That was the game ending play. With clear video of the push off using full extension of the arm.

You owe that to the players and fans simply for the integrity of the league. What would it have hurt to just simply say we are going to take a look at it.

I will say that with the way we played for 3 quarters of the game we didnít deserve to win but use the rule that you implemented.

Yep.

Not to even "look" at the sequence of events in a playoff game was ridiculous.

Big fat slap in the face from the league to the New Orleans Saints.

Aikman is a joke as commentator.

Aikman still has butt-hurt from that 28-0 drubbing the Saints Dome Patrol gave him in his NFL debut, 1989, Wk 1...

Cowboys never played the Saints during their 90s run, avoiding the Dome Patrol after that ass kicking...
