The Times-Picayune Doesn’t Recognize The Super Bowl After Saints Got Robbed In NFC Championship Game
New Orleans newspaper The Times-Picayune had a great frontpage Monday.
Following the New England Patriots winning their sixth Super Bowl Sunday night over the Los Angeles Rams, The Times-Picayune ran a blank frontpage that reads, “Super Bowl? What Super Bowl?”

The frontpage is an obvious reference to the fact the New Orleans Saints got screwed out of a Super Bowl appearance. During the NFC championship game, a flag wasn’t thrown late in the game in what might have been the most obvious pass interference in the history of football.
You can watch the absurd play below.
There wasn’t a flag thrown on this play. The NFL should be embarrassed. pic.twitter.com/qL2dTyonEb

The anger and bitterness of the Saints fans has honestly been amazing over the past couple weeks. How long will this continue for?
Hopefully, it’ll never end because it’s outstanding content, and I totally understand their anger. How does a flag not get thrown? (RELATED: Sean Payton Spent Three Days Eating Ice Cream And Watching Netflix After NFC Championship Game Loss)
Instead of Drew Brees in the Super Bowl, we got Jared Goff putting on one of the worst offensive performances I’ve ever seen on such a large stage.

Never change, New Orleans! Those great people in Louisiana are more entertaining than they’ll ever know.
