The call (or rather, non-call) that likely kept the Saints out of the Super Bowl . Some billboards have already popped up around the Atlanta area, as car dealership owner Matt Bowers (who owns some dealerships throughout the southeastern United States) bought up space to let the world know that the Saints should be playing in their arch-rival's stadium.
As the season wore on, it was a growing dread among Falcons fans that the Saints may get to play a Super Bowl in Mercedes Benz Stadium. When that didn't come to pass, Falcons fans were understandably thrilled.
Matt Bowers, a diehard Saints fans who owns car dealerships throughout the southeast, has rented billboards in seven locations in and around Atlanta with 16 placements to voice his displeasure with the NFL. “And I’m not done yet,” he told ESPN. pic.twitter.com/ZHh0un2Xie— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 22, 2019
The billboards said everything from "SAINTS GOT ROBBED" to "NFL BLEAUX IT."
Bowers is a diehard Saints fan, but who knows what "I'm not done yet" means. He might be involved inare trying to wage against the NFL.
All of this, of course, ultimately is for naught. The league isn't going to force the teams to replay the game, and the Rams are going to the Super Bowl. For Saints fans, however, it's about letting the NFL know that it was wrong. The NFL has admitted as much, but Falcons fans can look at the billboards and realize that they dodged a bullet.
If you still haven't marked your calendar for the Super Bowl, the game will be kicking off from Atlanta on Feb. 3 and will be televised by CBS and you can stream it right here. If you're thinking about buying a new TV for the big game, CNET has you covered. They shared their best picks for every budget.
