You got there because of a few calls and our fumbles, not because of anything the saints did. We will be there next year.
Couldn't agree with you more. Two late hits on BF that should've resulted in 15 yard penalties with first downs. N.O. didn't capitalize on the fumbles. MN had them in offensive yardage. A key "catch" that was "awarded" to N.O. was in fact a trapped ball on the ground.- The game was "awarded" to N.O. There was a push for N.O. going on for weeks prior to the SB. Bringing up Hurricane Katrina, the city that needs a boost, Etc. etc.- It was pretty obvious. The people in the broadcast booth were even amazed at some of those calls.(...and the "non-calls") The whole thing was a pile of crapola, worthy of the best of "Pro" Wrestling. Two thirds of the officiating team should have been fined & suspended, if not given the boot.- What good does the "apologies" barely whispered in the press do? The deed was done.- Yeah, I'm bitter about it. But it's for good reasons. Most people outside of N.O. know it was caca. There's been comments from ALL OVER THE WORLD about it.
