The Patriots and Rams faceoff in just a few hours in Super Bowl LIII.

By now, we all know about the controversial no-call that led to the Rams playing in the big game. While commissioner Roger Goodell stayed silent on the matter for a full 10 days before addressing it at his Super Bowl press conference, it still seems like he and the NFL are completely tone deaf about the impact of that play.

A prime example is this story being reported.

I get it, it's a rematch of the championship games so would make for great television.

But we all know that for the most part the home opener for the Super Bowl champs is one big party, from hanging the banner to celebrating with fans at the stadium. The opposing team is sent out like a sacrificial lamb of sorts.

For the NFL to even consider having the Saints go to LA to play the Rams in the opener is a slap in the face of the Saints and the city of New Orleans.

But the NFL is entertainment and Robot Goodell only cares about money, not the fans or doing what is right.

I knew the NFL would pull something like his (shocker), which is why I proposed this idea the other week.

For the second straight game, #Rams CB Nickell Robey-Coleman was fined $26,739 for a hit on a defenseless player — this time Rex Burkhead in the Super Bowl LIII loss to the #Patriots. And yes, Robey-Coleman was flagged for this one. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) February 9, 2019 Robey-Coleman was fined for this hit on Burkhead, which was flagged.
