Well known New Orlens Saints fan, Harry Connick Jr., has shared a letter that is addressed to Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner, saying he’s boycotting the 2019 Super Bowl.
The crooner wrote the NFL commish a letter and posted it to his Instagram account:
“I love the game of football so much — the NFL gives me great joy and has for many years. To not call the pass interference/helmet-to-helmet penalties at the end of the game was one of the most disgraceful no-calls I have ever seen,” he wrote. “The officiating this year has been, for the most part, mediocre, in my opinion. But for a game as important as the NFL championship, it sickens me to know that the people who are assigned to fairly officiate the game seemingly had no regard for not only a dangerous penalty but one that would certainly have changed the outcome of the game.” “Until changes are made, specifically, booth review of outcome-altering no-calls, you can count me out. I’m not watching the AFC championship game and I won’t be watching the Super Bowl,” he added.
The NFL has reportedly admitted they made a mistake and the penalty should have been called in favor of the Saints.
