    Rams got lucky on the no call, but I think that loss was on Sean Peyton. He could have run the clock down at the end and didnít. There were some bad no calls on both teams, but the Rams made the plays when it mattered and the Saints did not. Iím obviously biased, but I do believe the Rams earned the win. Superbowl baby!

      Yes, an incredible ride.

      As far as the PI non-call, it probably should have been called, but it certainly wasn't the game deciding play. The Saints won the coin flip, had a chance to win, then had a chance to stop the Rams, but couldn't get it done. And if I remember correctly, there were a few face mask penalties that could have been called against NO that would have helped the Rams.

      I still can't believe it, the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.

        We'll undoubtedly hear about that non-call all week- and to be objective, NO has a valid beef. They get that call, they run the clock down and kick a FG and its game over. This non-call should prevent a couple of us in particular from being quick to blame the officials for perceived slights and Ram losses.

        Like you said, though, there was a non face-mask call on Goff during the previous drive as he ran towards the end zone- a call which would've given us 1st and goal and a chance to conceivably ice the game ourselves with a touchdown. We instead settled for a FG and NO got the ball with the game tied.

        It's been a lot of hopelessness over the years, and I too can't believe we're finally back in the Big Game.

          I think it was a proper NO - Call. The camera angle makes for all the drama. I still say the ball was past the saints receiver by the time NRC hits him. And the Refs told payton that the defender got there at the same time as the ball. Everything else I agree with. The no-calls on the face masks would have been big had they been called.

          LA RAMS SB BOUND !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            "The Call"- Perspective Needed
            by NJ Ramsfan1
            In what undoubtedly will take over as the most disputed (non) call since the infamous "Tuck rule" game, I figured I'd start a thread on yesterday's Pass Interference play which will hopefully minimize talk on every other thread while lending some perspective and fairness to the conversation.

            First, anyone with a shred of objectivity and two eyes realizes this was a missed call. Even those WITHOUT objectivity like Robey-Coleman himself acknowledges a flag was expected. This point is not debatable, in my eyes. Second, if we'd been on the receiving end of this call, this board would be blowing up with people (rightly) beside themselves. A full dose of "The refs are anti-Rams proclamations would be given. Gap, among others, would probably have a stroke. And third, we will unfortunately hear about this for awhile, as calls like this only fade when the next big story takes its place. Let's remember this if anyone feels the urge to knock the Saints or their fans. They have a right to be pissed.

            This, however, is all I will concede to the people who will harp on the fact that the Rams were somehow undeserving of their place in the Super Bowl. Nothing could be further from the truth, and I for one will not allow this nonsense to sully our season and our berth in SB 53. I point to four specific instances in which this call should not have mattered.

            1) On the previous Rams drive, Goff visibly had his face mask pulled as he was attempting to run the ball into the end zone. Replay clearly showed this, and Troy Aikman pointed it out. If called, the Rams would have had the ball 1st and goal at the 1 yard line. If they'd scored a TD, they'd have been up 24-20 and NO would've had to go the length of the field for a TD instead of a go-ahead FG. Though we can't assume the Rams would have definitely scored a TD there, chances are pretty good that with three tries from the 1 yard line they'd have done so, changing the complexion of the game.

            2) After the non PI call, Payton did a horrible job managing the clock- electing to pass (incomplete) and leaving the Rams with more time than they otherwise should have had on their subsequent possession if NO had run the ball. LA would have had to expend their timeouts and their last drive would have been much, much tougher.

            3) The Saints had an opportunity to stop the Rams defensively on their game-tying drive, rendering this entire conversation about the missed pass interference moot. They didn't do so and allowed a game-tying 48 yard FG.

            4) The Saints got the ball first and could have ended the game with a score or at worst kicked a FG, forcing the Rams to come down and do the same. They didn't do that either. They turned the ball over, setting up Zeurlein for his game-ending heroics.

            In sum, the disappointment and anger from Saints fans is justified. Yet any one of the above-listed circumstances would have produced a different...

            NEW ORLEANS ó If you love controversy and hate the idea of the Los Angeles Rams, then it will be easy to discredit what they accomplished Sunday at the earsplitting Superdome. You will brand them lucky. You might even suggest the NFL conspired to get their big-name, pass-interfering fannies into the Super Bowl. When a great game includes a bad call at a critical moment, itís hard to separate the spectacular from the dirty.

            It is a much simpler ó and lazier ó task to rag on the serial carpetbagging franchise, which is now back in Hollywood with a glamorous roster to match and experiencing a meteoric resurgence that belies the difficulty of its journey. Donít get carried away with the outrage, however. The messy officiating is only one part of the story. It shouldnít overshadow that the Rams, for all their star power and offensive brilliance and clever coaching, proved to be more than just stylish in becoming the first road team in six seasons to win a conference championship game.

            In a 26-23 overtime victory against the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles captured a wild and hard-broiled NFC championship game and advanced to Super Bowl LIII. It took everything that the Rams had, and it also took a controversial no-call on a clear pass interference penalty when cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman clobbered Tommylee Lewis on third down with 1:45 remaining in regulation. If a penalty had been called, Saints quarterback Drew Brees would have been given a new set of downs, and Coach Sean Payton would have taken the opportunity to run down the clock and set up a field goal attempt on the gameís final play. Instead, Wil Lutz made a 31-yard kick to give New Orleans a 23-20 lead with 1:41 remaining, which gave the Rams time to drive 45 yards and tie the game with a Greg Zuerlein 48-yarder with 19 seconds left.

            There was plenty of football before and after the no-call, but that moment defined the game. It was a shame. But the shame belongs to the referees, not the Rams.

            They still won this game on an incredible kick by Zuerlein, who lived up to his ďGreg the LegĒ nickname and drilled a 57-yard try in overtime to send Los Angeles into euphoria. It was the longest winning field goal in playoff history, and even though it came in the friendly kicking confines of a dome, Zuerlein made it with 73,028 fans creating so much noise the stadium shook. When he split the uprights and the Rams players and coaches ran onto the field to celebrate, the Superdome fell silent instantly, as if someone had pressed the mute button on a remote.

            The Rams still won this game by recovering from a disastrous first quarter and overcoming a 13-0 deficit. They did it with running back Todd Gurley II, their best weapon, gaining just 10 yards on four carries and...

            The RAMS officially won 27-24
            by gap
            I don't know if the league will admit it, or how long it will take, but the RAMS won on the OT FG. It was not a delay of game. Since it is sudden death OT, the game is over without the invalid penalty being called.

            This is a video of the replay. I also have a video of it live, but it doesn't have as much detail. Listen to the description of the ruling for a snap that happens as the clock hits 00. Also notice the position of the officials left hand.

            http://iamgap.com/vids/gamewinningFG.wmv

            You will see that the ball is snapped just as the play clock hits 00. It is a bit hard to tell on the live shot, but the snapper moves the ball forward before pulling it back. Any movement of the ball is either the start of the play, or a false start if it was a simulation of a snap to get the defense to jump off sides. Also, as noted above, the official has moved his left hand to his mouth, to blow the whistle at 00, whether the ball is snapped or not, which is what he did.

            Here it is in slomo so that you can see the snapper move the ball forward just as the clock hits 00.

            http://iamgap.com/vids/gamewinningFGslomo.wmv

            This is clearly not a delay of game, the officials predetermined that they were going to call it if the RAMS gave them an opportunity, and the FG is good. A good FG ends the game, so the RAMS won 27-24.

            As well as the league office sux.

            Of all the "Highlights" links, only the RAMS over titanics doesn't work. When you go to the game recap, it is written by someone that clearly has an axe to grind against the RAMs. Instead of the RAMs pulling out a win late in the game, they had to be save by the reserves.

            Maybe the RAMs should move back to LA. Maybe then the league would give them more respect, and maybe even fair officiating to have a fair chance to win their games.

            The Curse Of The 9ers
            by Guest
            What will officials dream up Sunday night when the Rams take the field in San Francisco? Letís turn back to 1998. The first call occurred with the Colts leading 21-7. The ball was intercepted by Indianapolis defensive back Jeff Burris in his own end zone. He returned it to the 9ers' 32-yard line, which almost certainly would have led to a 24-7 lead and, given the way that Peyton Manning was carving up the 9ers' at the time, most likely an insurmountable 28-7 lead. Instead, the officials called Burris for "holding" and the 9ers were handed the ball back and ultimately a touchdown.

            On the 9ers' next possession, Young again threw a pick, again it was overruled ruled by a defensive holding penalty, and again the 9ers got the ball back and scored. The result of the botched calls? A point swing of a minimum of 14 and as much as 28 points. The blown calls by the referees were so bad; the NFL had to come out with a statement in essence apologizing for the poor officiating.

            The Colts farce allowed the 9ers to host the wildcard game Enter Green Bay, a team they hadnít beat in 5 tries. A Jerry Rice fumble was ruled down by the referees, and four plays later, a touchdown pass to Terrell Owens.

            Enter New York; another playoff game which the 9ers had little chance of winning even with all the referee huddles that always end in gifting the 9ers the ball or the call. Even though the Giants blew a sizeable lead and deserved to lose the game given the fact that they laid down like dogs for the 9ers one cannot deny the injustice of the referee shenanigans which gifted the 9ers yet another referee aided win. Once again the NFL had to cut and paste their 49er apologist bile as if this sort of thing is not common in the NFL. Oh wait they are right, its not common place in the NFL unless itís an important 49er game.

            Does anyone remember the game last year? The NHS describes it best in this snippet.

            So when 12 seconds into it, an important game for the 9ers was being dictated by an inexplicable referee reversal to give the 9ers a touchdown on the opening kickoff, followed minutes later with a penalty negating a would-be 9ers turnover on a kick return, followed by several more of the classic "referee huddles" throughout the afternoon, fans nodded and understood. Even if the Rams injury-depleted split squad came to compete today (which they didn't), the script already had cast them as losers.

            The opening minutes were the 49er Problem in a nutshell. As the 9ers broke open the opening kick return, the "flag" message clearly appeared during the run-back. No big whoop, all seasoned NFL fans are well accustomed to having penalties negate good returns. The ref signaled the illegal block against the 9ers, and the game was set to start with the 9ers mired deep in their own territory.

            But wait! Someone, somewhere instead decided that it wasn't a...
