Of course, who can blame them, after the infamous no-call in the NFC Championship game?

You can also read comments from fans following the tweet by NFL Officiating; most of which were of a negative nature.
Of course, you probably remember the play in question from last Sunday's NFC Championship Game:

The Saints had to settle for a field goal, giving them a 23-20 advantage.
The Rams went on to win, thanks to a 46-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein to force the game into overtime, followed by a 57-yard field goal in the extra period to win it.
