Watch: Mardi Gras parade float takes aim at Roger Goodell

Roger Goodell

The blown call in the NFC Championship Game has been a big theme of this year’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but one group took it to another level.

Le Krewe d’Etat highlighted their parade on Friday with a float and performance that took aim at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The float, which was called “Willful Blindness”, took all sorts of shots at Goodell and official Bill Vinovich over the blown call in the NFC Championship against the Rams. Those marching in the group were wearing striped referee shirts that had images of Goodell as a clown on the back. The marchers had near blindfolds on — a commentary about the refs missing the calls. Their float had numerous other references.

Here’s the video shared by WDSU’s Fletcher Mackel.

Here are some photos:

A blown pass interference and illegal hit to the head call in the NFC Championship Game in all likelihood cost the Saints a trip to the Super Bowl. On the other hand, we pointed out there were plenty of missed calls that adversely affected the Rams in the game, which is something many conveniently omit from the discussion.

The creativity and attention to detail was excellent.
