New Orleans Saints fans showed up to Monday night’s game demonstrably salty against the refs, thanks to last year’s blown non-call in the NFC Championship Game. So, they didn’t need much motivation to get riled up again.
Late in the second quarter with 26 seconds left on the game clock, the refs initiated a review of a catch of Michael Thomas, after which they correctly issued a 10-second runoff.
Fans were livid, despite the fact that the referee crew got this call correct. Though, to be fair, it is a stupid rule.
Fans on social media were equally upset.
