Yes, the defense was an abomination. Yes, Sean Payton made some stupid coaching calls unlike the world has ever known. Yes, another game of wasted timeouts and bad kicking cost the Saints. But those ******** defensive holding and pass interference calls at the end of the game are absolutely inexcusable. I can't take another year of the NFL retribution from bountygate. The Saints have been penalized enough, yet every season, virtually every game, we see these kind of calls go against the Saints. I really don't have enough time left on this earth to spend it dealing with this nonsense. I say goodbye NFL. You can take your cheating refs and stick it. My only regret is wasting the money for a year of Sunday Ticket which I won't use.

I will cheer for the Saints by listening to the radio and support the local broadcast. I refuse to watch another game or give the NFL anymore $.

When an outside influence can completely change a game...

Pretty upset right now as the game was over and then magically a yellow flag comes out and resets downs for the other team. That to me is over the top.

I haven't watched the replay of the 4th quarter 4th down magical flag event yet. There may or may not be any evidence of wrong doing. If it comes down to a "subjective" call then I have to wonder if I am really watching a competitive sport.

I did that several years ago. Haven't bought a stitch of NFL merchandise since 2012. I watch game streams on the internet to stay up with the Saints and occasionally the Colts, but they get exactly zero of my dollars yearly.

In order to achieve it's tax exempt status, the NFL is listed as an "Entertainment" entity, not sporting.

My grandfather used to get overemotional about professional wrestling....then we found out it was scripted....Now I get overemotional about the Saints and I have a feeling in my gut that's going to find out the league influences games more than we think....heck, we know they lied about bountygate, why not influence officials.

The commentators on TV didn't seem to agree with it either.

The PI on Robertson was legit. We would have been screaming for that had the roles been reversed.

He never should have touched the receiver. Robertson had absolutely no reason to because the receiver's feet would've come down out of bounds even if he could have gotten his hands on the ball.

by definition, that means it wasn't a penalty...look up pass interference...the rule states it has to be a catchable ball.....

Also, not sure he touched him, he certainly didn't push him as some commentator said.

Also, if you go back and watch the play in realtime...there is an official 5 yards away who doesn't throw the flag...it comes from a guy who is 25 yards away....

Robertson ran to coverage, the receiver stops...he does put a hand on the receivers waist, but doesn't push, his hand goes UP! the close official doesn't call PI but it comes from 25 yards away.....this is why people are getting fed up with the NFL.
