People in New Orleans are still pretty bitter about the most recent NFC championship game, and made that clear during a Mardi Gras parade.
Darren Rovell tweeted out a video late Sunday night of blind refs marching in the parade carrying a sign that read, “Dictator’s Robbin’ Refs.” It’s a clear reference to the game against the Los Angeles Rams, which resulted in one of the worst official decisions in the history of sports.

I hope New Orleans never ends this grudge. It’s way too funny to let go. Of course, can you really blame them?
The Saints got hosed on a no-call pass interference that cost them a shot at the Super Bowl.
There wasn’t a flag thrown on this play. The NFL should be embarrassed. pic.twitter.com/qL2dTyonEb

The best part is that we all know this is going to carry well into the 2019 campaign. The fans aren’t letting this go, and I wouldn’t either.
Getting robbed of a spot in the Super Bowl isn’t something people are going to forget. It’s one thing if you lose fair and square.
It’s a totally different ball game when you get screwed, and that’s exactly what happened to the Saints.
Keep up the great work, New Orleans fans! It’s highly entertaining.
