They were badly burned by the “Nola no-call,” but the New Orleans Saints have joined the NFL in opposing a fan’s lawsuit seeking damages over the missed penalty that helped the Los Angeles Rams beat the Saints in a January playoff game and move on to the Super Bowl.
The lawsuit by attorney and self-proclaimed fan Anthony LeMon resulted in a state judge’s recent order that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and three game officials submit to questions in September.
According to David Hammer of WWL, the New Orleans Saints themselves have filed a brief in support of the NFL. The Saints have said that while they are disappointed, they are satisfied with the rule changes that came from the call.
