The missed pass interference call in the NFC Championship is still having a major impact around the sports world, as NFL official Bill Vinovich has dealt with tons of criticism.

After all, the no-call will probably go down as one of the worst in the history of the league.

Well, it is becoming very apparent that sports fans will not let Vinovich off the hook for his role in the controversy.

Vinovich is spending his time officiating NCAA basketball games, but the damage done from last weekend is still having an effect on his career.

During yesterday's matchup between Saint Mary's and BYU, the crowd at the Marriott Center were directing all their energy toward the referees.

While the fans were enjoying the Cougars' win over the Gaels, one group of fanatics couldn't help but ask Vinovich about the blown call from Sunday. It shouldn't surprise many people that he wasn't ready to field any questions about the play.

Check it out:

This probably won't sit well with fans of the New Orleans Saints, especially due to all the legal issues taking place over this matter. Another significant moment from last night was Vinovich's decision to tell the crowd to take down its sign that made reference to the infamous no-call.

Eventually all this drama surrounding this game will subside, but it doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon.
