What’s the point?

No amount of trolling in New Orleans will get the Saints into last season’s Super Bowl.

Nor will it do anything to garner sympathy from the general NFL fanbase sick of Saints fans whining.

But the missed pass interference call in last year’s NFC championship was one of the most egregious and consequential in the history of the game.

Can you really blame Saints fans for carrying over their emotion into the season opener?
