The New Orleans Saints and their fans still are having trouble moving on from their controversial NFC Championship game loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

They still are harboring dreams about a replay of the game after referees missed a blatant missed pass interference call — or a helmet-to-helmet hit, take your pick — as Rams’ cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman hammered Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis. Robey-Coleman admitted after the game that he “got away with one.”

The play took away the Saints’ chance to run down the clock and kick a potentially game-winning chip-shot field goal Sunday.

There have been lawsuits asking for a partial do-over, even as the Rams prepare for Super Bowl LIII against the New England Patriots on Feb. 3.

Was there a penalty for pass interference?

No doubt.

But it wasn’t called.

That’s led to the kind of pent-up angst that led to the writing of songs and creation of videos like the “Saints Got Robbed.”

And no doubt, writing the song and making the video made them feel better.
