New Orleans, LA – Former Frostproof Bulldog Nickell Robey-Coleman is headed to the Superbowl as a member of the Las Angeles Rams! Robey-Coleman however is the center of controversial no-penalty call.
Here is an exerpt from Ryan Phillips article in The Big Lead:
Nickell Robey-Coleman was at the center of controversy Sunday during the NFC Championship Game. As the New Orleans Saints were driving late in the fourth quarter to take the lead over the Los Angeles Rams, Robey-Coleman appeared to commit a clear pass interference penalty. It went uncalled.
According to Robert Klemko of Sports Illistrated Robey-Coleman admitted to pass interference:
Robey Coleman: “Yes, I got there too early. I was beat, and I was trying to save the touchdown.

It didn’t take New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton long to call up the league office:
“Just getting off the phone with the league office … they blew the call.”
