Attorney Frank D’Amico is hoping that the courts take an unprecedented step by interfering with the happenings of a professional sports league.

D’Amico just filed a lawsuit in the Civil District Court of Orleans Parish on behalf of Saints fans. The suit claims that the Saints were impacted by “extraordinarily unfair” officiating late in the NFC championship game against the Los Angeles Rams.

By now it’s well known what happened at the Superdome on Sunday. This non-call on an obvious pass interference by the Rams led to Los Angeles coming out on top in overtime.

In no way does this mean that what we saw filed Tuesday will be the end of things. Expect a class-action lawsuit on behalf of bettors moving forward, too.

His response: These things happen and the NFL simply has to do better. “We understand the frustration of the fans,” Goodell told media after making remarks about the upcoming Atlanta Super Bowl. “I’ve talked to Coach [Sean] Payton, the team the players.
