Prior to the SuperBowl this past Sunday it was obvious why so many were wanting to distance themselves from all the turmoil of the Championship games and the disgust of how the league handled it all. My biggest concern after we got hosed is that I worried about how the future would affect the amazing fans of the Who Dat! Nation. Who of us would we keep? Who would we lose forever? :covri:

But it seems that some feelings and temperament changed a bit after the SuperBowl ended... and perhaps because of the WAY it ended. I began to feel like we would come through this hosing with limited (though reasonable) negativity about what happens from here. So this poll (or 'pole') seems like a good time to see where some of us stand right now. I assume that feelings are still a bit raw and they are very likely to change as time marches on. But this seems like a good time to see where we are trending.

I won’t be back unless they overhaul officiating. Expanding replay and somehow immediately rectifying egregious no calls in real time. No more sorry we just humans and mistakes happen bs. Went to the moon 50 years ago but we can’t change the way refs blow games is ridiculous.

I chose "The outcome means nothing & the NFL must make big changes before I'm back."

But what that means to me is that the NFL must make big changes before I sink my money or time into anything other than the Saints.

Look, I knew it was futile saying I'd never be "back". BUT there WILL be changes. I'll no longer let the opinion shows affect my mood. Which means, I am not watching for the most part. You know, training camp footage, pressers, and the like, maybe. I will instead only watch the local Saints programming (only an option, of course, for local people).

This is unlike other years where I tried not to get too carried away only to be let down by something WE did and getting mad at a particular player and kick myself for caring too much. But this is different. I feel like we're "in" something with the players because I have seen that THEY feel it, too. It's a symbiotic relationship and we're trying not to let each other down. And somehow now, that's more important to me than winning the Super Bowl (still important but only for what it means to the players, not what the Saints winning would SHOW the NFL, if that makes sense).

Outcome of SB didn’t affect me one bit. No matter what happened I was still upset because of the NFC championship game fiasco.

It helped. Much more than if the Rams won. I couldn't stomach the idea that dyooshbags like Peters and Talib could be celebrating an ill-gotten Chip, "justifying" the Rams being there. Had the Rams won, my ire would be like a hurricane, A Category 7 (which doesn't even exist). As of now, it's a Cat 5.

But honestly, every single time I see the play with the no-call I get furious. It's hogwash. It really is. Now, maybe we would have lost the game, or maybe we would have lost Brees, MT or Kamara, or Cam J to a major or career ending injury had we won the NFCCG and this is a silver lining. But this is just infuriating. So many MANY times we have lost games due to DPI that was 1/10 as bad as that. Think about how many times on third down you thought we got off of the field only to see that gotdayumed yellow hanky come flying across the screen, sometimes quite a few seconds after the play is over. It has happened SO many times that I am now conditioned to wait until the opponent actually lines up for the 4th down play before I celebrate. EVEN AFTER OUR DEFENSE GETS AN INT. I am still WAITING FOR THE FLAG.

So, the no call is just particularly egregious to me. And while the Rams proved their ineptitude by only scoring 3 points, it only SLIGHTLY helps.
Great post. I still haven’t gotten over that PI that was called on us a few years ago when we hosted the Raiders. Carr threw the ball high and out of bounds. The WR was 2-3 feet out of bounds when we contacted him with the ball well over every one’s head, yet here came the flag. Extending the drive and setting them up for the win.

I don't feel as bad as I felt last week and the Rams jewel of a performance in the Super Bowl helped.

I am still mad about it though. As much as we already know how much of sniveling weasel Goodell has always been and to this day continues to be it is still swelling my you know whats that he still hasn't come forward and addressed it like he had one ounce of character and integrity...................the very things that he professes to protect and uphold in the NFL.

Probably what chaps me the most is that I've been life long fan of the NFL and after all this I just don't know if I can ever trust the league again..................that's a sad thing for me to have to say.

The wife won $1000 on two $25 squares for a fundraiser. Gave $500 to the recipient and kept the rest. That’s a helluva upside to that clown show of a game.

Given the situation, the only thing that would have been better was if the Rams scored 0 points.
Actually... if the Patriots had scored 15 more points it would have been epic on so many levels! :hihi:

When I was younger, my brother, my father and I were all huge fans of pro wrestling. We would watch TBS wrestling on Saturday afternoons, and then Mid-South Wrestling out of Shreveport on Saturday nights. We never missed it.

As I got older and began to understand that it was all fake, nothing more than a soap opera for men, I lost interest in it.

That's the way I feel about pro football now. We had a Super Bowl championship stolen from us, no different than if it was lifted from our pants pocket, and nothing was done about it. I have a feeling the NFL will only pay token lip-service in the offseason to making changes so this doesn't happen to another team again.

It will take the entire offseason and then some, to rekindle my interest in the NFL. There's a gaping hole in my heart that's not healing.
