The New Orleans were once again involved in a controversial play that cost their team in the playoffs.
At the end of Sunday’s Saints-Vikings playoff game, Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph caught the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime.
Many including former veteran referee Terry McAulay believed that Rudolph committed offensive pass interference by extending his and pushing off.
Saints fans weren’t happy with the refs on the field and showed their displeasure by throwing debris at them as they went into the locker room.
The NFL’s VP of officiating Al Riveron went on to release a statement saying there wasn’t offensive pass interference on the play because there was contact by both players but none of the contact was enough for refs to call a penalty.
