NEW: Petition for Saints rematch hits 500,000 signatures

Local News

A petition asking for a Saints rematch against the Los Angeles Rams has reached its goal of 500,000 signatures.

The petition began 24 hours ago.

Saints fans are complaining that the refs missed two calls against the Los Angeles Rams late in the 4th quarter. They said the missed call possibly cost the team a trip to the superbowl.

Fans said had a plenty been called, the Saints would have had a first and goal inside the 10 with a chance to run down the clock for a potential winning field goal. Instead, the Rams were able to tie the game and win it all.

The NFL could call for a rematch, theoretically but there is no word if officials are planning another game.
