National Football League playoff ‘do-over’ suit in jurisdictional bog

City Council introduces resolution blasting NFL officiating

The City Council wants more accountability after NFL referees missed a call during the NFC CHampionship

Jones said that the National Football League has never invoked Rule 17.

Members of the New Orleans Saints continue to react negatively toward the NFL, and the league's officials, as the Super Bowl approaches. "Accordingly, no ticketholders or fans have a legally cognizable right to ask a Court to order the Commissioner to act on an officiating omission".

Lawyers for the plaintiffs came out a little later, and Frank D'Amico, the lead attorney for the plaintiffs, said that Morgan had requested additional briefs over the next few days. "We're asking a court to compel the commissioner to follow the rules".

They should be fined and prevented from ever calling another post-season game.

Gov. John Bel Edwards sent a letter Tuesday to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to express the "deep disappointment" of the people of Louisiana and Saints fans. Referees failed to call a clear pass interference penalty that would have likely sealed a victory for the Saints. All it did was fine Robey-Coleman almost $27K for the helmet-to-helmet hit that went uncalled, and acknowledge on background to the Saints that on-field officials missed the calls.

NFL rules "specifically preclude directing the officials on the field to call a penalty; they similarly bar anyone from second-guessing the final on-the-field decision of the referee", the league stated.
