Just when you thought the fiasco in new Orleans was over, it reared its ugly head on Monday when it was announced that a New Orleans judge ordered Roger Goodell and three referees to be questioned under oath over the “no-call” during January’s NFC Championship Game between the Rams and Saints.
Antonio LeMon, who filed a lawsuit over the game, alleges that the National Football League committed fraud with the outcome of that game.
His lawsuit is seeking $75K in damages over failure of the refs to throw a flag on a obvious pass interference call. If he wins, LeMon plans to donate the money to charity.
“I think the city of New Orleans and the Saints organization and the fan base, they deserve to know what happened in that NFC Championship game,” LeMon said, via WWLTV. “So we can get some level of truth, some information, so we can all heal a little better. As far as I’m concerned, we can’t move on until there’s been some reparation and some consequence for what happened.”
Here’s that play:
That missed call would give the rams a chance to tie the game and ultimately win it in overtime.
