Saints TE Ben Watson blasts Roger Goodell for silence on blown call

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell watched the NFL's conference championship games on his phone while flying home from South Africa last weekend.

"I have since spoken with colleagues on the Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee about inviting NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to answer some important questions about the unfair call against the Saints", Richmond said in a statement on Wednesday.

Some fuel has been added to the fire burning among the New Orleans Saints and their fans.

Since Sunday's Superdome Screwjob that kept New Orleans out of Super Bowl XLIII, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has gone silent.

Watson missed Sunday's game after recovering from an appendicitis. "We're going to do some reverse voodoo and get back in the Super Bowl next year", he said. "I don't care to watch it".

Not to be outdone, the team owner, in a sternly worded statement says, "No team should ever be denied the opportunity to reach the title game (or simply win a game) based on the actions, or inactions, of those charged with creating a fair and equitable playing field".

Several bars in the city have said they won't be showing the game in their establishments, and residents say they're making other plans to avoid the game.

"Commissioner Goodell. We all realize that football is an imperfect game, played, coached and officiated by imperfect people", Watson writes in the tweet.

Miller incorporated her locksmith business while taking digs at the NFL.

Whether Goodell ever testifies before congress, there are some warning signs that the threat of government intervention brings and that the National Football League should take very seriously.

D'Amico wants Goodell to have the teams retake the field at the time and spot of the penalty that wasn't called, put time on the clock and let the game play out as if the penalty had been called.

New Orleans had the ball on the Los Angeles 13-yard line with under two minutes to play when quarterback Drew Brees threw a third-down pass toward Tommylee Lewis near the right sideline.
