Transcript for NFL slammed over bad call in Saints playoff game
Back now with the outrage that is continuing to grow over that blown call that may have cost the saints a trip to the super bowl and the NFL reportedly considering video replay of disputed pass interference calls. T.J. Holmes is here now with more on that. Good morning. You don't have to be a saints fan to be upset. You don't have to be a football fan, even a sports fan but just a fan of basic fairness. Are we going to sit down in two weeks to watch the super bowl and wonder is the right team in this game? Well, the integrity of the super bowl is in question. Next question, what are you going to do about it. Apparently one option is to sue. Brees, pass is incomplete. No flag. Reporter: It's being referred to as one of the worst missed calls in playoff history. The New Orleans saints missed a place in the super bowl after referees didn't throw the flag on this play. Many call it a glaring case of pass interference. It should have been a penalty and Sean Payton is justifiably upset. Reporter: The saints were clearing out their lockers Monday, the emotions were still raw. Every time you think about it, it's going to be tough on you. It's frustrating. Reporter: And the firestorm shows no signs of dying down. It was the most egregious missed call in the history of football. To me this is on the league office because you don't have a rule in place that would allow for that call to be reviewed. Reporter: ESPN is now reporting the NFL will consider a rule change making pass interference calls subject to review. Something saints owner Gayle Benson supports saying she's been in touch with the NFL and that the team will aggressively pursue changes in NFL policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again. And the fallout is spreading beyond the league. Including reports of a possible class action lawsuit against the NFL filed by people who lost big money betting on the saints. Meanwhile one supports book in New Jersey is refunding all wagers on the saints tweeting just think of it as good karma. This has been talked about for years, Strahan. You can speak to this, about the idea of having those plays be reviewable. The reason they reject them is because they're usually subjective. Two people could look at the same play and say maybe it was pass interference, maybe not. In a game this magnitude super bowl on the line that blatant of a call now we're talking about it. Guys worked so hard to get to that point. You say you don't have to be a saints fan to be upset. A lot upset. I know one saints fan, they've been talking about it for days. I did not. I think I've handled it very well. Because what can you do? But you don't want it to happen going forward. Anything that the commissioner can do? Not in this case, this is done. Well, not really. Come Theoretically rule 17, section 2, article 3, states that the commissioner's powers under the section allow him to reverse a game's result or reschedule the game from the extraordinary act that occurred. That's not going to happen. Technically he could say we're going to play this thing over. Rise up this revolt. We're going to give them at first and goal. He could theoretically. Not going to happen but in theory he could. So do you want the rams fans mad at me or the saints fans mad at me? That's what he's thinking. You were there in the stadium. It was obvious. Obvious bad call. It could have been two calls. It could have been interference and personal foul because he hit him head to head. Could have been both. I didn't say it. He said it. A lot of people saying that too. I'm not the only one but, T.J., thank you so much.
