First off, nobody got robbed.  There are blatant penalties (holding mostly) on every single down of an NFL game that could decide the outcome if they were properly called.  It's unfortunate that particular call wasn't made because of the isolation of the players. I think it wasn't called (in real time) because the pass was 6ft short of the receiver, and the ref wasn't going to give one team a win at the end of regulation in the Championship game on a "let's take a shot for a TD or maybe get the penalty play" on 3rd and long, knowing they would kick the FG if it didn't work out. No referee is calling Lebron for his 5 step crab walk travel going to the rim late in a game.  It's a TV show.

I'm a fan of the game, not a team. Those were 2 good games that could have gone either way if not for a single bizarre play or two in each, and better officiating.  I don't look forward to the day that AI controls sporting events.

I don't mean to offend, but I couldn't disagree with you more on this one Rusty.  I agree completely about not calling PI when a prayer is thrown up in the last seconds of a game, that's not even close to what happened here.  The receiver was about to catch the ball, he had the defender beat and the ball was right there, a very well thrown pass.  And there was a helmet hit on a defenseless player, a rule I hate, but understand the player safety issue.  The league admitted it was a blown call and everyone else on the planet sees it as an egregious non call that robbed the Saints of the victory.   Of course congrats to the Rams for taking advantage of their lucky break, the game wasn't handed to them at that point, but it was stolen from the Saints.  I'll note once again I could care less who won, not a dime on the game.

A tough no call in the NFL for sure. 

I can see both sides of this.  From the right angle it does appear that the ball was not going to get to a spot the receiver could catch it.  But from most other angles it appears to have been blatant, and would likely normally be called.

Sad for Saints fans to be sure.

An interesting opportunity for the Rams, though I don't see them beating the Pats for the prize.

Very embarrassing the way these modern refs don't even seem to feel the need to conceal their cheating. What the hell matters more - deliberate manipulation of the outcome via reffing decisions or somebody perhaps tinkering with ball inflation? No question about which will be taken seriously.
The Pats may not stand a chance in the big game 2 weeks from now if the NFL is intent enough ( they looked it in the Saints travesty) to reward the Rams for moving to L.A. Expect them to try turning Jon Gruden into Bill Belichick over the next few seasons.

Understand the Patriot fatigue but one thing that is certain is they always make for a great SB. Always goes down to the last few minutes to decide the winner when they’re playing in the big game.

At work I got in a pool for picking the score and mvp and submitted Rams-31 Patriots-27 with Aaron Donald as mvp. Then saw this yesterday hoping my prediction comes true. It seems they get it right every other year so they’re due this year...

Just hoping for another great game.

Cannot deny the Pats are a solid team.  Just tired of seeing them in the finals.

Go Rams!

I can't remember the last SB I watched, but my wife informed me that we were watching this year.  She wants to see what it is that the "big" Jeffery Lebowski is selling.  It may be the only 30 second version of the beloved character without a joint, a white russian, or a 4 letter word.
