“Ref Up The Dome” Part Deux (Saints VS Cowboys Game)

Posted by | September 22, 2019.

The incompetent referees of the NFL have blatantly been making bad calls and or no calls against the Saints for the last 3 games in a row, one of them being the final game of last season.

All New Orleans Saints fans are encouraged to wear a referee shirt for the Saints vs Cowboys game on Sunday September 29th. We need to make a statement on National TV to let the world know that we are loyal, passionate and pissed. Some call it “petty”, others call it “salty”, and they even have those so called Saints fans that say we need to get over it and focus on a new season as if the fans are on the field playing. The players need to forget it and focus on the new season but us as fans, the 12th man, it’s our job to focus on the petty stuff and make statements. We are the ones that can hold signs and wear T-shirts mocking the commissioner. We are also the ones who can wear a patch on our jersey of a referee with his head in his ass, all without getting penalized and fined.

NFL Referee “LOL” Jersey Patch

Posted by | September 21, 2019.

The Saints were affected by an ignorant officials call in the game against the Los Angeles Rams in the 2018 NFC Championship game when Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman was not called for pass interference after he hit Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis when the review showed clear evidence he hit Lewis long before the football arrived and helmet-to-helmet contact was made. Now, a second time against you got it…the Rams, this time in the 2019 season, a touchdown was taken away from the Saints in a game devoid of them.

The initial ruling by the officials was incomplete pass by Goff, giving the Rams a 4th-and-7 at the 11. The officials reviewed the play after Saints head coach Sean Payton challenged the incomplete pass. The play was reversed, but the Saints were not ruled with a touchdown since the play was ruled dead via the whistle.

The Who Dat Nation has had enough of the stupidity, the ignorance of the rule book, and the lack of accountability by the NFL. The referees need to get their head out of their ass. Saints fans will be wearing this patch on the gameday jerseys to show the world just how we feel about them.

For only $8 plus shipping you can get the patch that has been talked about on both ESPN and the NFL Network and begin making a statement for yourself. Order yours by clicking here.

Saints Win Super Bowl !! According To The Predictions From ESPN

Posted by | September 2, 2019.

A recent report from ESPN.com predicts the New Orleans Saints will win Super Bowl LIV despite a slow start to the 2019 season.

The prediction is based on a simulation from ESPN’s Power Football Index. The cable sports network predicts the Saints will start out the year 4-4 but will finish 11-5 with a first-round bye in the playoffs.

This Is According to ESPN Predictions Only:


Sweet, sweet revenge for New Orleans: #BringTheMafia In a rematch of the NFC Championship Game, the Saints avenge their loss and make sure that a stray pass interference call (or lack thereof) can’t get in the way, as they smack down the Rams 27-3.


New Orleans rebounds: Ever since their last-minute loss to Houston in Week 1, Drew Brees has had the Saints clicking at 4-1. Three of the team’s four wins have been by more than a touchdown, too.

Saints clinch NFC South: Atlanta gave them a run for their money, but ultimately Brees and Sean Payton were able to keep their foot on the gas down the stretch and build up a two-game advantage over Atlanta at 10-5. The Falcons remain alive for the postseason at 8-7.

NFC playoff seeds: 1. Green Bay Packers, 2. New Orleans Saints, 3. San Francisco 49ers, 4. Philadelphia Eagles, 5. Los Angeles Rams, 6. Atlanta Falcons

It’s Time To Bring The Mafia And Seek Redemption, All Officials Responsible For The NOLA No Call Are Active For The 2019 Season

Posted by | July 11, 2019.

The seven officials who worked the controversial NFC championship game between the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams are all returning this season.

The NFL announced its roster of officials for this season on Wednesday.

Rusty Bayne, Bruce Stritesky, Bill Vinovich, Tom Hill, Gary Cavaletto, Todd Prukop and Pat Turner are all listed among the 122 officials who will work games this season.

Turner, the down judge, and Cavaletto, the side judge, were the two officials closest to the play. Vinovich was the referee and in charge of the officiating crew.

The Saints lost to the Rams 26-23.

In the fourth quarter of the game, Rams’ cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman hit Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis before a pass from Drew Brees.

There was no flag thrown on the play and the Saints kicked a field goal and eventually lost in overtime, denying them a trip to the Super Bowl.

Drew Brees Is Nominated For Two Espy Awards

Posted by | June 19, 2019.

Drew Brees finds himself among the most decorated athletes in America.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback continues that tradition this offseason, learning this week that he is up for two ESPY Awards: the Best Record Breaking Performance and Best NFL Player.

This past season, Brees became the National Football League’s all time passing yardage leader, breaking the record formerly held by Peyton Manning in a Monday Night Football victory over the Washington Redskins, when he threw a 63 yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith.

Brees also became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw for over 500 career touchdown passes, took sole possession of the NFL’s all time record for pass completions, and he broke his own mark for single season completion percentage.

Posted by | June 15, 2019.

In 2017, the Flushing, N.Y. native appeared in all 16 games and posted 21 tackles (17 solo), one sack for an eight-yard loss and one pass defensed.​

The Saints Pick Up Four Undrafted Rookies

Posted by | May 9, 2019.

Devine Ozigbo, RB, Nebraska. The back played in 41 games for the Cornhuskers and started 21 contests over a three year period. The Texas native left school after rushing 419 times for 2,196 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground while averaging 5.2 yards per carry. As a receiver, Ozigbo caught 49 passes for 488 yards. This past season, he led the Huskers with 155 carries for 1,082 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. A quality rushing and receiving prospect.

Kenny Bigelow, DT, West Virginia. After originally beginning his career at Southern California and recording three sacks in 19 games for the Trojans, he missed the 2014 and 2016 seasons because of injury. As a result, he was awarded a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and transferred to West Virginia, starting all 12 games for the Mountaineers this past season, grabbing 20 tackles, two sacks, 4.5 tackles for loss, and a forced fumble. Sean Payton said the Saints would add defensive tackles to the team this year.

Jordan Wyatt, CB, Southern Methodist. A four year starter at school, Wyatt played in 44 games and started 41 of them, concluding his collegiate career with 146 tackles, 32 pass break ups, 11 intercepted passes, eight forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles, and one quarterback sack. Wyatt holds the SMU record for 289 interception return yards.

Jake Powell, TE, Monmouth. A three year starter at school, the New Jersey native represents another addition at the tight end position, an area of focus for the Saints, who also signed Jared Cook as a free agent and drafted Alize Mack from Notre Dame. Powell started 20 games and played in 26, catching 54 passes for 642 yards and scoring six touchdowns. He ranked first among tight ends in his conference as a junior, and despite playing just two games as a senior, scored twice off 15 catches.
