Lions fans laugh at Saints fans new to bad calls

The 10th episode of our newest Detroit Lions YouTube series.

New Orleans Saints fans were up in arms Sunday after a costly non-call in the NFC Championship lead to a devastating loss.

The Saints were robbed last Sunday after officials failed to call an obvious foul, and they say the blunder cost them a trip to the Super Bowl.

Since then, somebody’s suing the NFL, Louisiana eye doctors have offered free exams for NFL refs. The New Orleans City Council passed a resolution to conduct a thorough review of its rules. A song called “Saints Got Robbed” is going viral, as the local newscasters say.

The whole thing has Detroit Lions fans giggling to themselves. Awful officiating has plagued the boys in Honolulu blue since the dawn of time. Detroit fans are used to frustrating calls with just a little bit of wiggle room to be, I guess, sort of technically right but ridiculous -- and it’s enough to drive you mad.

So we’re taking a trip down memory lane. For funsies.
