A New Orleans attorney representing Saints season ticket holders is suing the NFL for a controversial call in Sunday's game between the Saints and the L.A. Rams that sent the Rams to the Super Bowl. The lawsuit refers to a play in the fourth quarter that many believe was pass interference, but the penalty wasn't called by the officials.
Attorney Frank D’Amico says Commissioner Roger Goodell should enforce an NFL rule that he believe gives Goodell power to negate the Rams' win or restart the game. That rule lets Goodell act when a "calamity" occurs that’s so unfair, or so counter to accepted football tactics, that it has a major effect on the result of the game.
The NFL hasn’t commented on all this. A hearing is set for Monday.
