Things will not be simmering down any time soon when it comes to the non-pass interference call by the referees from the NFC Championship Game.

Now, it would appear from this video footage that one official appeared to wave off his colleague on the play where Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman threw himself into Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis.

If anything, this is a very curious appearance for referee No. 60. The decision made by the referees ultimately helped turn the tables, which landed the game into overtime.

This incident has already created all kinds of turmoil within the league. And it has only helped fuel the fire as it pertains to holding referees accountable for missed calls.

Needless to say, folks are going to be talking about this far beyond the Super Bowl.
