the saints get another shot at the superbowl because as they see it, they were robbed! by a a cartoon from the front page of a local paper. when saints they put up around atlanta where play feb 3rd. and some saints marched straight in to a lawyers office to sue roger goodell to have the end of the game re-played. the personal injury lawsuit claims saints fans suffered incredible damages from the blown call, including mental anguish,
emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of faith in the nfl. goodell does have the power to have whole or part of a game replayed due to "extraordinary circumstances."which to me.. is an earthquake or maybe if the quarterback has heart attack.. i'm thinkin the saints will lose this pi lawsuit just like they lost the p-i call. bet steph curry would love a do-over to erase the video of that embarassing banana-peel slip he had when the warriors beat the lakers monday night.. but instead he's laughing about it on late night t-v.
