City Council introduces resolution blasting NFL officiating

Drew Brees threw a pass towards Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis, who was flattened by Rams' cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, who made helmet-to-helmet contact before the ball had even reached Lewis.

Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman was fined $26,739 by the National Football League for the helmet-to-helmet hit that didn't draw a penalty flag late in the NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Friday.

If you're a Saints fan and still stewing over the obviously missed call by Bill Vinovich's crew that likely cost New Orleans a trip to Super Bowl LIII, this won't make you feel any better.

The news is interesting because the fine is a result of a very controversial non-call that came late in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. The call would have essentially sealed the win for the Saints. "We know that's probably not going to happen, but at least they can take a bite out of the injustice".

These germs can easily spread to the animals' bodies, habitats, toys, bedding, and any surfaces where they live. Symptoms of a salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps lasting four to seven days.

The pass was incomplete and the Saints were irate that a penalty wasn't called. Darrell Guillory filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of all ticket-holders against the NFL. A hearing is set for Monday, KTLA reported.

But whether the Saints - and their fans - are ready to move on is another matter.

"The Super Bowl, the NFL's premiere event, is a carefully planned and enormously expensive undertaking, with preparations carefully sequenced", from logistics to producing a "full-blown music concert at halftime", Siclare wrote. "NFL Bleaux It!" and "Saints Were Robbed", read two of the signs.

The Rams play the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in Atlanta on Sunday, 3 February.

"So, it's just one of those things that's a slippery slope, and it's an excuse". But at the same time, you can't let it hold you back, it can't be a hindrance. "And the reality is they got football after that snap. Instead, they are left with the memory of officials who failed to create an equal playing field and deprived them of that opportunity", Richmond said in a statement. The Rams won a game the New Orleans Saints could have, but did not.
