NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has ruled out a withdrawal of the clear wrong decision in the NFL semi-finals between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams. “We’ll look at the video evidence again,” said the Top official of the American Football professional League in Atlanta, but added. “There have been numerous proposals over the past 15 to 20 years, whether the video evidence is to be expanded. It does not include any discretionary decision, and that was a discretionary decision.”

Goodell said that he understand the frustration of the losing Saints and their Fans. At the same time he ruled out, however, that he would have to change its powers, the decision or restart the game. Two Saints Fans had recently filed a lawsuit in the court, a legal procedure.

Rams defender Nickell Robey-Coleman had rammed Saints Receiver Tommy white Lewis shortly before the end of the game to the ground before it ever had the Chance to catch the Ball. This was a clear violation of the rules, as well as the League admitted then. A penalty against Los Angeles would have increased the chances of victory of New Orleans. In the end, the Rams won and reached the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots on Sunday night.
