The New Orleans Saints lost a shot at being in Super Bowl LII thanks to a controversial blown call, and Harry Connick Jr. is not happy.
After the game, Harry Connick Jr. posted an open letter on Instagram addressed to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Needless to say, the troubadour was not happy about how the game ended. In fact, he threatened not to watch the Super Bowl.
The noted Saints fan started by saying he would have written the letter no matter who had been playing in the game. He goes on to call the missed call, “one of the most disgraceful no-calls” he has seen” before ripping the NFL over the state of officiating in general.
He then goes on to say he is “out” and won’t be watching the Super Bowl.
“Until changes are made, specifically, booth review of outcome-altering no-calls, you can count me out,” Connick wrote. “I’m not watching the AFC Championship game and I won’t be watching the Super Bowl.”
