Last night during the NFC championship game between the Saints and the Rams the refs missed a huge pass interference call that ended up helping the Rams punch their ticket to the Super Bowl.
According to Saints coach Sean Payton the NFL went to admit that the refs on the field blew the call.
Apparently the ref who missed the pass interference call is from Southern California and another ref on the crew played for the LA Rams and Saints’ rival Atlanta Falcons.
Saints fans clearly don’t think it was a coincidence that the refs who missed the call have ties to California.
Maybe next time the NFL will do some background checks on refs before having them work big time playoff games.
