NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addresses awful no call in NFC Championship game

The New England Patriots will take on the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl on Sunday. But many people think it should be the New Orleans Saints representing the NFC in the game instead.

That’s after officials failed to make what was a blatant pass interference call on the Rams, which would’ve dramatically changed the game. It’s hard to argue that if the refs had correctly called pass interference because we don’t know what would’ve happened afterward but, it definitely affected the game in a big way.

On Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the media. Of course, one of the topics that came up was that blown call.

While Saints fans aren’t going to appreciate Goodell’s words, what do they expect the guy to say or do? He’s not going to take Rams out of the game and place the Saints in, but changes have to be made.

Perhaps, making every play reviewable is the answer. Maybe get better officials, who knows but something, anything has to be done to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future. The absolute last thing the NFL wants is for fans to think officials and not the players changed the outcome of a game.
