Roger Goodell addresses blown call in NFC Championship Game

Rams Saints pass interference

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell spoke with reporters from the site of the Super Bowl on Wednesday, and he finally admitted publicly that the officiating crew from the NFC Championship Game cost the New Orleans Saints a trip to the Super Bowl.

When asked about the infamous pass interference non-call, Goodell stressed that officials are “human” but said the league needs to look at ways to examine instant replay.

While Goodell confirmed the NFL is exploring ways to better the use of replay, he also stressed that the human element of officiating is not going to be removed.

The call that was missed on Los Angeles Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman was one of the most egregious non-calls in NFL history, and some fans have petitioned for the game to be replayed because of it. That was never going to happen, but the NFL is reportedly looking at some unique ways to avoid similar things from happening in the future.
