The city of New Orleans is still pretty upset about the controversial ending of the NFC Championship Game.

The city's main newspaper, the New Orleans Advocate, had its Super Bowl preview in today's issue.

The preview is going viral on social media.

Action Network's Darren Rovell tweeted it out:

Well played, New Orleans.

The Saints, their fans and most of the NFL community remains upset about the blatant pass interference penalty that wasn't called late in the fourth quarter.

A group of Saints fans have actually filed a class action lawsuit against the NFL.

From the report:

D’Amico Jr. wants Goodell to enforce Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1 in the NFL Rulebook that he says “could, in the right circumstances, allow the commissioner to take extreme action in the face of a grossly unfair result.”

Many experts have said that it’s highly unlikely the NFL or Goodell will do anything to change the outcome of Sunday’s NFC championship game, which saw the Rams going to the Super Bowl. However, the controversial no-call could lead to changes next season.

NFL Rule 17 has been brought up because fans believe it would allow Goodell to reschedule or even reverse the results of a game for an “extraordinarily unfair” act.

A U.S. Congressman has also requested a meeting with Roger Goodell.

The Rams and the Patriots, meanwhile, are set to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3.
