On Tuesday two New Orleans Saints season ticket holders asked to order the NFL commissioner to reverse the results of the NFC championship game that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl.
Filed in a state court, the lawsuit says Commissioner Roger Goodell should implement a league rule governing “extraordinarily unfair acts.”
They think a reversal of the game’s result or the rescheduling of a game is completely appropriate.
They're upset because of the failure of officials to call interference (or roughness penalties) when a Rams player clocked a Saints receiver with a helmet-to-helmet collision at a pinnacle moment during Sunday’s game.
The NFL has not responded to the lawsuit.
A hearing is set for Monday — six days before the Rams head to the Superbowl in Atlanta.
This is the hail-Mary equivalent of a lawsuit.
