Post A Monday hearing in federal court did not result
Six days before the Super Bowl Ugo Amadi Jersey , the court battle has begun in a longshot lawsuit seeking a possible do-over of the NFC game that ended with a Los Angeles Rams victory over the New Orleans Saints, a game affected by what the NFL concedes was a blown “no-call” by officials.in an immediate ruling. It dealt largely with a jurisdictional question.The two Saints season ticket holders who filed the lawsuit want it heard in state court in New Orleans. The NFL filed to have it heard in federal court, where U.S. District Judge Susie Morgan heard initial arguments at midday. She was expected to meet with attorneys on both sides again in the evening and it was unclear when the jurisdictional issue, or the case itself, would be resolved.Officials failed to call interference or roughness penalties when a Rams player leveled a Saints receiver with a helmet-to-helmet hit at a crucial point in the in the final minutes of regulation time. The Rams won the Jan. 20 game in overtime and are set to play the New England Patriots in Sunday’s Super Bowl.The lawsuit by two Saints season ticket holders, Tommy Badeaux and Candis Lambert, says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should implement a league rule — Rule 17 — governing “extraordinarily unfair acts.” Remedies include reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game — in its entirety or from the point when the act occurred.NFL lawyers say the lawsuit belongs in federal court for reasons including the possible scope. They argued that the suit takes the form of a class action that could mean millions of dollars in damages for Saints ticket holders and others in what the suit calls “the Who Dat Nation,” a reference to Saints fans and a popular team cheer.Attorney Frank D’Amico, who filed the lawsuit two days after the championship game, said that, while the lawsuit recounts damages suffered by Saints fans, it doesn’t specifically ask for monetary compensation. Instead Dwayne Haskins Jersey , D’Amico said, it seeks a court order, under state law, forcing Goodell to investigate the blown call under the never before invoked Rule 17.D’Amico also insisted that he wasn’t specifically asking for a court-ordered do-over or reversal of the game, although that could be the result if the rule is invoked. “We’re not trying to keep the Super Bowl from going forward,” he said.That appeared to surprise Gladstone Jones, a New Orleans attorney arguing for the NFL, who said it would be “big news” that D’Amico’s clients aren’t trying to stop or delay the big game.As to D’Amico’s call for an investigation, Jones said there is no need. League officials, he said, have clearly reviewed the calls. “They have done their due diligence.”His arguments tracked positions taken in weekend briefs filed by NFL lawyers.“The NFL parties do not dispute that they have previously advised the Saints, including the club’s head coach D.K. Metcalf Jersey , that one or more penalties — for pass interference or illegal helmet-to-helmet contact — were mistakenly not called late in the NFC Championship Game, and that the NFL would like its officials on the field to make these calls,” an NFL filing says.But it also says Goodell, a defendant in the lawsuit along with the league itself, does not have the authority to overrule a referee on the field. Even if the rule did apply, the NFL attorneys argue, a decision on a remedy is up to the commissioner, not a ticket-holder.Morgan had to step away from a jury trial in an unrelated case to preside over Monday’s hearing. Records show she got the case after it was initially assigned to U.S. District Judge Barry Ashe — who removed himself from the case because he has Saints season tickets. Last week: 3-9Weeks 1 through 10: 73-75-5Tough week last week. Time to get back on track…Home team shown in bold. Odds taken from Odds Shark.Cincinnati (-1) vs. ClevelandNow with Cincinnati, Hue Jackson gets his revenge (kind of) and the Bengals take it at home.<em>Pick: Cincinnati (-1)</em>Jacksonville (-3) vs. BuffaloThe Jaguars defense should feast in this one, so much so that their Blake Bortles-led offense won’t be forced to do much.<em>Pick: Jacksonville (-3)</em>Philadelphia (-5) vs. New York GiantsThe Eagles still have a legitimate path to an NFC East title.. although that says more about the NFC East than it does the Eagles.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (-5)</em>New England (-10.5) vs. New York Jets The Jets lose by 31 to the Bills, have to sit on it through their bye week, and then have to play….. the Patriots. Fun fact: Josh McCown vs. Tom Brady will be the second-oldest QB matchup in NFL history.<em>Pick: New England (-10.5)</em>Baltimore (-11.5) vs. OaklandThe Ravens aren’t built to blow teams out… they win here http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-cody-barton-jersey , but the Raiders will keep it close.<em>Pick: Oakland (+11.5)</em>Tampa Bay (-1.5) vs. San FranciscoExpect a lot of points in this one. Both Jameis Winston and Nick Mullens should put up solid performances.<em>Pick: Tampa Bay (-1.5)</em>Carolina (-3) vs. SeattleThe Seahawks saved their season with a big win on Thursday Night Football vs. the Packers, but neither team looked very good in that one. The Panthers, losers of two straight, are desperate and at home. Those two ingredients sound like a win.<em>Pick: Carolina (-3)</em>Los Angeles Chargers (-13.5) vs. ArizonaThe Bolts need a bounce back win here, as a matchup on SNF in Pittsburgh next week awaits.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-13.5)</em>Indianapolis (-8) vs. MiamiAndrew Luck is becoming the great player that everyone expected coming out of Stanford.<em>Pick: Indianapolis (-8)</em>Pittsburgh (-3) vs. DenverAt first glance, this seems like a slam-dunk win for the Steelers… but I’m not so convinced. They had to scramble in Jacksonville to come out with a win, and the Broncos will be ready for them.<em>Pick: Denver (+3)</em>Minnesota (-3) vs. Green BayThis Sunday night matchup is a battle for 2nd place in the NFC North. I love Rodgers, but the Vikings are the better team.<em>Pick: Minnesota (-3)</em>Houston (-4) vs. TennesseeThe Titans already have one big win on Monday Night this season, but they won’t get a second. Texans roll.<em>Pick: Houston (-4)</em>
