New Orleans Saints fans are in an uproar following the missed call by the referees in Sunday’s NFC championship game against the Los Angeles Rams that likely cost the team a trip to the Super Bowl. One fan even went so far as to buy billboards in Atlanta.

Matt Bowers, owner of several car dealerships on the Northshore and New Orleans area, said in a Facebook post that he bought billboards in Atlanta, the site of the 2019 Super Bowl.

One billboard, on I-85 south, says “Saints got robbed” and another “NFL bleaux it.” 

Bowers told WDSU he has ten billboards in total, one right outside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The boards are in six locations and three in downtown Atlanta. They are up from now until Feb. 3.

The New England Patriots are set to play the Rams on Feb. 3 in Super Bowl LIII.
