I watch ESPN's Get Up in the morning. They literally will spend a week cycling the same 3 stories from this group than talk about anything else in the NFL. This week's three stories: Where will Julio be traded? What will happen with ARod? Can the Chiefs go 20-0?

I was amazed that it got broken up by the 17 YO girl who knocked the bear off the wall to save her dogs.

I do have to admit that back with the Rams shame happened, the national media did talk about it for a bit.

Exactly. Because of my schedule I sometime force myself to watch Florio and Simms on PFT just to observe. It’s nothing but Rogers! Simms has such a Fascination with him and calling him the greatest of all time that it is creepy! Peter king is a guest on Friday. He’s not bad in my opinion.

Why can’t they spend 3-5 minutes one day a week talking about each team in each conference division? For example, Monday is North day and they spend 3 minutes each on a quick rundown of the 8 NFC/AFC North divisions. That’s half an hour on mentioning, discussing, and including an entire 2 division’s worth of teams and their fans that you normally wouldn’t. That still leaves you 1+ hours to kiss Rogers’ (both Aron and Gotohell) ass each day!

P.S. I predict that AG is going to say it’s because of the money.

They talk about it on a few shows. But seemed like they couldn’t reshow the video often enough on the NFL network u could tell they were muzzled on elaborating deep into it, I gave up the channel for a year. And still not a fan of it because it’s controlled by the league and good fuuukdell

It was not nearly covered as it would have been had it happened to one of the Golden Eight (G'nats, Pack, 49ers, Steelers, Eagles, Cowboys, Rams, Ravens)...
Not sure what you watch and listen to but it was a major topic for months everywhere. It was on ESPN radio and NFL Radio and more online print sites than I can count. Kept seeing it on TV, as well. They made a rule change because of the pressure (although it was a useless attempt) from all across the spectrum.

Not sure how you are missing the boat on this one, JP?

Not sure how you missed it unless you don't watch much but it was shown over and over and over for months. It was universally considered a horrible call.

Well, I wasn't obsessing over it for one thing, and I wasn't looking for it either as I felt we had out chances and shouldn't have let it come down to Tommylee...

Credit to Payton for walking into the press conference and immediately, effectively deflecting any criticism of his game plan, play calling blaming loss on one call...

But I'm sure a five minute segment on satellite radio played over and over for twelve hours would seem like everywhere to the obsessed fan...

Within 24 hrs it was flushed from the National NFL News Cycle and it was Patriots v Rams and all the predictable scripted stories for that upcoming SuperBowl...

Most other fans hate our Saints anyway because of Goodell's #fakenews #bountygatebeatdown and considered it #karma or could care less...

Other than Local News (WWL, WDSU, WWL-AM, WNOL) kept stirring the pot in an otherwise slow news cycle, it faded quickly 'cause we weren't the G'nats, Packers et al...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Godhell did a fine job of turning the media and most national viewers against us. Oh well, they are just ignorant sheep led by Godhell's lies. Baaa. Baaa. Black sheep have you any wool? No. Godhell mislead me and played me for a fool....

How much media coverage at various levels did or did not harp on the call isn’t really relevant. The point is the league made a major “mistake” in a major game and there were zero lasting repercussions from it. That mistake could have been 100% accidental or intentional. Here we are a few seasons and a pandemic later and only Saints fans likely remember. I don’t see where the argument there is too much to lose is valid because they’ve already made the mistake via incompetence or deceit. Either way they survived it. They are either saying “Hey, we wanted to give LA a chance and have an exciting game”, or they say “We are too stupid to efficiently referee this Billion dollar industry that you devote your time and money to”. I honestly don’t known which is worse.

I follow FAR more outlets than satellite radio. That play was the talk of the off-season far and wide. As I pointed out it even prompted the implementation of a new (toothless) rule.

There were definitely repercussions. As I pointed out, a rule was implemented because of the play. It was not an enforceable rule, but it has kept it relevant. There is now a strong support for a "sky judge" that can make calls from the booth that point out that singular play as their supportive reasoning. I expect will come about soon and its genesis was that single call in that game.

Those are not repercussions to the league. Those are platitudes to amuse the masses.
