Episode 1374: Referee Madness, US Murph On Taking Your Beating, Tom’s Rebel Yell, Mullane’s Restraint, How Many Fingers
It’s been deemed one of the worst refereeing decisions in US sporting history, but that is of scant consolation to the New Orleans Saints, who miss out on a place at the Super Bowl after a blatant foul was missed in the final 2 minutes of their game against the LA Rams on Sunday night.
Happy that the Rams will play in the Superbowl, but the Saints just got robbed. How is that not pass interference? It’s not even debatable ????????#LARvsNO pic.twitter.com/ph8rL2HAFI

US Murph is on hand to tell us just why it was such a terrible decision, and we wonder anew at just how the New England Patriots keep doing it, what exactly Tom Brady is rebelling against, and somehow managing to play the victim despite being a 5-time Super Bowl champ.

Plus there’s also the ongoing issue of referees in commentary booths, High Court visits for GAA players in the mid-’00s, John Mullane’s incredible restraint and we ask just how many fingers does a rugby player really need?
