Let’s check in on New Orleans Saints fans to see how they’re handling the NFC Championship Game loss:

Yeah, good luck with that. Although I’m sure if a call that bad went against the Eagles, somebody would do a similar thing up here.

Of course the cowardly Roger Goodell has said absolutely nothing about the blown non-pass interference call, because he’s just a shill for the league’s mega-rich owners, but check out this ridiculousness:

Mental anguish? Loss of enjoyment of life? Loss of entertainment? These are the kinds of damages that are written into lawsuits when you get hit by a drunk driver or injured in a workplace accident or something like that, not because your football team lost a game.

Surely this would get tossed out in about 15 seconds by any competent judge, right?

Anyway, elsewhere, this guy decided to get back at the NFL by spending his money on billboards in a division rival’s city:

Waste of money.

Here’s the Louisiana governor, who I’m sure has more important things to worry about:


Here’s the statement from Saints owner Gayle Benson:

(Sunday’s) result is still difficult to accept for all of us. I am thoroughly disappointed by the events that led to the outcome of yesterday’s game. Getting to the Super Bowl is incredibly difficult to do and takes such an unbelievable commitment from a team and support from its fans. No team should ever be denied the opportunity to reach the title game (or simply win a game) based on the actions, or inactions, of those charged with creating a fair and equitable playing field. As is clear to all who watched the game, it is undeniable that our team and fans were unfairly deprived of that opportunity yesterday. I have been in touch with the NFL regarding yesterday’s events and will aggressively pursue changes in NFL policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again. It is a disservice to our coaches, players, employees and, most importantly, the fans who make our game possible. The NFL must always commit to providing the most basic of expectations- fairness and integrity.

Ok, well that was kind of reasonable.

Kevin Allman at New Orleans Advocate thinks the city should throw a parade anyway:

The Saints deserve to be thanked for a remarkable season. The fans deserve a chance to come together and feel good again.

We deserve a parade. We need a parade.

We have parades for Mardi Gras and for death. We have parades for Prince and David Bowie, parades for “Star Wars” fans and wine aficionados and parades for tourists who can cough up the cash. Seems like we could have a municipal parade for a team that played well all season, only to have its Super Bowl chances ripped away by one of the worst calls ever made in professional sports.

Aka everybody gets a participation trophy.

I’ll give the last word to Colin Cowherd:

Personally, I think the call, as bad as it was, is justified, a slice of kismet pie served up to Sean Payton for his douchebaggery, with the leftovers going to Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara for their ski mask jabroni routine. Then, the rest of the Saints, who danced around to “Dreams and Nightmares” after beating the Eagles, they get to scrape the crumbs off the plate.

Time’s yours.
