No doubt the Hicks play should have been a penalty, but would the Saints and their fans being calling conspiracy over a non-call from the Brooks hit? I personally don't think the media or the Saints would be discussing the controversial "non-call," and would be replayed as a game changing sack.
If you've ever read anything from a Saints fan you understand that every call that doesn't go their way and every loss is a conspiracy. The Saints never lose a game because they were simply outplayed. In the 2011 playoffs a lot of them still hold onto the belief that they were screwed by the refs despite not being called for a single penalty all game (not joking here).
Saints fans have officially replaced Ravens fans as being the tin-foil-hat-wearing fans of the NFL. They think every game they lose is a conspiracy.
