If the NFL thought the controversy surrounding last weekend’s ‘Nola No-Call’ was going to go away quietly this week, they were mistaken.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter released a report claiming their is concern about the men who officiated the NFC championship game.
In his report, Schefter says:
“There is some concern in league circles about the NFL’s judgment in allowing four game officials who live in Southern California to work the game between the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints.”
Schefter then quotes a league source saying:
“I haven’t heard anybody say the game was fixed; I have heard people say the crew f’ed up. But the optics is bad. It’s a legit issue and they should have figured that out.”
Super Bowl LIII is next Sunday Feb. 3 in Atlanta.
