Goodell Issues Response to Louisiana Governor

Geaux Black and Gold

Nearly three weeks after Louisiana Governor, John Bel Edwards, sent a letter to the NFL Commissioner regarding the now-infamous “NOLA No-Call,” Roger Goodell has issued a response.

One excerpt reads:

“Our rules do not permit the Commissioner to overturn the result of a game because of an officiating error, and I believe it would be wrong for me to do so.”

The letter refers to the flag not thrown on the LA Rams’ Nickell Robey-Coleman, who interfered with TommyLee Lewis, in the final minute of regulation in the NFC Championship Game. The game would eventually go to overtime and result in a Saints loss.

The Commissioner went on to say, later, that he “treasures [the NFL’s] relationship with New Orleans.”
