NEW ORLEANS - The Saints' now-infamous no-call saga continues.

On Friday, ESPN's NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported Rams CB Nickell Robey-Coleman was fined for the obvious helmet-to-helmet hit that went uncalled in the final minutes of the NFC Championship. The penalty would have given the Saints a first down near the goal line and given them an opportunity to run down the clock and make a potentially game-winning score.

Immediately after the game Sunday, Saints Head Coach Sean Payton said league officials admitted over the phone that the referees made a mistake by failing to throw a penalty flag on the play. Despite this, the NFL has not publicly admitted to the failure, prompting players and coaches to call for Commissioner Roger Goodell to break his silence.
