My only question is, if Brooks did not get the flag, would we be discussing that play as absurd and would he still be fined?
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.
