Did you know the terrible call on Bengals LB Wilson #55 happened at the same time as the non pass interference call the Rams benefitted from in the 2019 NFC Championship Game? Remember when Robey-Colvin hit the Saints Wilson with 1:45 to go?? Well This one gift wrapped Super Bowl LVI for the Rams also with 1:45 to go. Terrible finish and now that gambling is legall and endorsed by the NFL we are entering a strange era. These horrendous calls will come under a microscope.
During each postseason every football fan dreads a moment where the game is decided by the referees and not the players on the field. We think back to “The Tuck Rule”, Mike Renfro’s catch/non catch in the ’79 AFC Championship, or Bert Emanuel’s catch/non catch in the NFC Championship.

Man you hit the nail on the head… legalized gambling is beneficial to the two entities, the NFL and the whales in Vegas … they will “always” make the wrong call on purpose to benefit the oddsmakers… think about it… 2nd year a home team plays in SB and 2nd biggest media market … they would never allow a smaller market team to win a chip. Think of the 2002 WCF with the Kings and Lakers… the NBA would not allow a small “cow town” like Sacramento to hoist the O’Brien hardware. The camera does NOT lie but unfortunately, the refs will and so will that crook GOODELL.
Man you hit me right in the gut with that Kings vs Lakers…. I was pulling for CWebb and the boyz too. Sigh
