  • Roger Goodell, refs set to be deposed over Saints-Rams no call

New Orleans - A Louisiana judge ordered that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and three officials from January's NFC title game be questioned under oath in September about the controversial "no-call" that helped the Los Angeles Rams beat the New Orleans Saints in January's NFC title game, a lawyer said after a status conference Monday.

This would be the equivalent of the AFL's Gillon McLachlan or the NRL's Todd Greenberg being put on the stand over failures of the score review system or the performance of the Bunker.

The latest attempt by New Orleans Saints fans to seek legal recourse in the wake of the 2018 NFC championship game has taken steps forward. The Rams won and advanced to the Super Bowl.

Ten days after the game, Goodell spoke about the error. "They're not going to get it right all the time". The reaction from Saints fans has raged throughout the offseason, peaking with protest parades and Super Bowl boycotts.

They were seeking $US75,000 ($108,620) in damages - to be donated to charity - over the blunder by league officials.

Other suits dealing with the blown call have wound up in federal court, where they have failed. There's no way of knowing if a PI call would have led to a win for the Saints, who lost the game in overtime.

In April, NFL owners voted to allow pass interference calls to be challenged by coaches and reviewed on replay by officials in the coming season.

LeMon's lawsuit seeks $75,000 in damages and plans to donate the money, if the National Football League is ordered to pay up, to charity.

Orleans Parish Civil District Court Judge Nicole Sheppard made the decision to schedule the depositions, and said the four men should be deposed in New Orleans.
