I'm that type of fan yet I get slaughtered here after a Falcons loss while others are making every excuse in the world. It all makes sense now.

Trust me - he's getting slaughtered by Saints fans too.

This was posted to a Falcons Facebook group I belong to - and I thought I'd share it here.   I know there are some Saints fans lurking here -  it's a dose of truth.    Yes - it was a bad call.   Yes, the refs in this league suck - and yes - they suck bad.    There have been calls and non-calls in Falcons games - including post season games - and including the Super Bowl which affected the outcome of the game.   It happens in every game.   But, when the game is said and done - there's more to look at than just those calls.

I look back at the Super Bowl - and I think - **** it - why didn't they call the clear face mask penalty on Sanu when they called the holding on Jake Matthews that took us out of field goal range - making it offsetting penalties.    Did you not see the ref looking straight at them?   Doesn't matter does it - we still lost because there were other factors involved.    This one sided missed call took us to 3rd and 33 and out of field goal range and ultimately led to a punt allowing the game tying drive by the Patriots.  There were other missed calls in the game - most likely both sides.     Doesn't take away the fact that we lost.   We lost - and the Saints lost.    Move on.    Congratulations to the Rams!

that facemask call cost us the superbowl period. it would have offset the mathews hold amd kept us in field goal range for the real matty ice. refs control the nfl period

True, you are a clear thinking poster.

 

The Saints were still in control of the game despite the no-call. Sean Payton, Drew Brees, and Saints OL who consistently got murdered by Donald and Suh should take blame for the Saints season end. Their defense also gave up some big plays late to the Rams.

That Suh/Donald combination is nasty. Brady is gonna have to get rid of the ball much faster than he normally does in order to prevent getting mauled by them

That absolutely cost the Saints the game, the fans have every right to be upset, even though I despise them for how they act when they come to Atlanta. This dude here is nothing but an apologist for the NFL, we have several here on these Boards.

Nothing anyone can say about that non-call, other than what the Saints fans are saying. NFL does not even care how open their game fixing is any more, they believe the average fan will forget in two weeks. But they are going to be wrong this time!

No more than other bad calls and/or missed calls  have cost teams games.    Nothing can be done about it now.     Like everyone said to us - you can't let it be put in the hands of the refs.    If the refs had called the facemask on Goff - the Rams would have been first and goal on the 1 yard line.    Instead of a field goal - they could have had a touchdown and led instead of tied at the end of the game.   Instead they get called for delay of game on the next play (instead of the 2 missed delay of game calls the Saints had - one at the goal line) and end up kicking a field goal.   With that - what if the refs had called the delay of game on the Saints at the goal line - would the results have been different?   Who knows?

**** - the Seahawks lost a Super Bowl because of a blown call - and the ref later apologized for it.   

So no - that call did not cost the Saints the game.   Brees throwing an interception in overtime cost the Saints the game.

I understand what you mean - you probably would get respect from other teams fans - just not the fans hurt by the loss at the moment - just like this guy.

In the end you have to be able to separate the big picture from the end result. No loss ever comes down to one play. It takes a true fan to be able to recognize that and accept that no matter how much it stinks at the moment. This guy is a true fan

Can someone escort this Saints fan to the Saints Report? AFMB has no sympathy for Lose-iana. (thanks Tandy)

Finally a saints fan with sense. I showed this to my coworker who is a saints fan and it shut him up some.

I told him he gets no pity from me. And they had their chances

I've tried this same logic, reasoning and play to this Saints apologist. They fixed it because they missed those 4 blatant calls. Chalk it up to they were missed.

Good post. If the Saint's lost on that play, then it was the refs who cost them the game. Since they made it to OT, they can't use that excuse. They lost because they shed their conservative game-plan and switched to Brees gun-slinger mode in OT. IMHO. They still could've easily won in OT. 

Maybe next year we can be the one to knock them out in the final seconds of the game, wouldn't that be the perfect trifecta?

Skip Bayless said that was the biggest call/no call in the history of sports. I guess nobody remembers the pass interference call that took a championship away from Miami in 2002 against Ohio State

To this day that’s like the one play I’ll never get over. For whatever reason I’m more passionate towards those Hurricanes

Run the ball 3 times and kick a field goal and there would have been nothing the refs could do. 

Make 1, just 1, stop on defense in the 4th quarter, etc. The refs were a factor (like every NFL game ever played) but they were not the reason. Same thing applies here with the saints. They lost. No excuses. 

Oh. Yes.  Something wasn't right with the playcalling...

I get what you are saying...but we should've done what exactly?

Kick and scream and piss our pants like the Bagheads fans are doing?  Punch our TVs?  Demand a rematch? 

What would it accomplish? 

Do you visit stores with bad service?

The media is behind the Saints, which fuels their passion.   They weren't behind us because the great comeback win from Brady was a better story.   Doesn't matter anyway.   Media or no media, **** storm or quiet tears, the Saints aren't getting a do-over - they are staying in Lose-iana - while the Rams play in the Super Bowl and neither would we have gotten a Lombardi.

That Sanu call was only one of many in that game, including a blatant holding penalty in front of the ref during a 2 point conversion which may have changed the outcome of the game right there.

Yes. Its like a movie. I agree...
