Saints fans are not going down without a fight.
This past weekend, a Drew Brees pass to wide receiver Tommylee Lewis would cause so much controversy after multiple refs elected to not throw a flag for a blatant pass interference, helmet-to-helmet from Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman that would’ve most certainly changed the outcome of the contest.
If pass interference was called, the Saints would’ve been able to run the clock down for what would have been a game-winning field-goal attempt. Instead, the game went into overtime and a Drew Brees interception lead to the Rams game-clinching field goal and a trip to the Super Bowl.
Since then, Saints fan Terry Cassreino started a petition in hopes of staging a rematch.
“Refs missed a blatant pass interference call against the Los Angeles Rams late in fourth quarter of Jan. 20 NFC Championship Game, possibly costing New Orleans Saints a trip to the Super Bowl. Due to refs’ inability to properly officiate at the game, we the undersigned want a rematch against L.A. on Sunday, Jan. 27. It’s the only fair solution to this travesty of epic proportions,” Cassreino wrote.
Over 565,000 people have signed the petition as of Tuesday Morning.
