The Super Bowl is coming up
next Sunday, and for Tom Brady, this is his ninth one,
which is amazing. You realize,
one more Super Bowl, and he gets a free sandwich. But despite all the excitement
for the big game, many football fans are still
talking about the the team not playing in Atlanta,
and for more on that, we turn
to our very own Roy Wood, Jr., -everybody!
-Mm-hmm. -(cheers and applause)
-Yeah. Shut up. Silence! Silence!
No! No! Let’s get right to it. Let’s get right to it, Trevor. The wrong team is playing
in the Super Bowl. -(audience mumbling)
-Last Sunday’s game… Last Sunday’s game had
the worst call I’ve ever seen since I decided to go commando
under a graduation robe. (laughter) There was no way to know
that the lights on that stage would be
so intense. It showed the outline
and everything. I’m sorry about that. Anyway, Saints fans are pissed, and they have every right to be. You don’t have to be a
Saints fan to be upset by this. You don’t have to be a football
fan, even a sports fan, but just a fan
of basic fairness. NEWSMAN:
It’s being referred to as one of the worst missed
calls in playoff history. The New Orleans Saints missed
a place in the Super Bowl after referees didn’t throw
the flag on this play. Many call it a glaring case
of pass interference. The player made
an illegal tackle right in front of the ref, and that ref didn’t take out
the penalty flag. He didn’t take it out
of his pocket. Trevor, I’m pretty sure
this referee is the first dude
to get in trouble for not pulling something
out of his pants. (laughter) Penis. I’m talking about pen… Look, I’m gonna just come out
and say it, plain and simple. This is the worst thing
to ever happen to the people of New Orleans. Nothing else comes close. -Uh, Roy…
-Nothing! Roy, I think you’re forgetting
about Hurricane Katrina. Oh, yeah, that… My bad. This is tied
with Hurricane Katrina -(laughter, applause)
-as the worst thing… to happen to New Orleans. But unlike a hurricane, Saints fans can take
this disaster to court. NEWSWOMAN:
The Saints lose the game. The fans lose their minds–
buying billboards in Atlanta, where the Super Bowl
will be played without them. Robbed, they say. A petition with over
half a million signatures calls for a rematch. So does a lawsuit filed today on behalf
of season ticket holders, alleging “emotional trauma,” and nothing less than the
“loss of enjoyment of life.” (laughter) “Loss of enjoyment of life.” You know how upsetting
something has to be to make people from New Orleans stop enjoying life? They got Bourbon Street.
They got Mardi Gras. Even the funerals
look like a halftime show. “Oh, you heard Granddaddy died?” “Yeah.”
“Well, let’s have a parade!” (imitates trombone) Yo, yo, Roy, I’m sorry, man. Refs mess up calls all the time. It’s part of sport.
It’s not a big deal. It’s not a big deal? It’s not a big deal? It’s such a big deal,
this happened. NEWSMAN: Meanwhile,
one sports book in New Jersey is refunding all wagers
on the Saints, tweeting: (laughter) Bookies. Bookies. The people who break
your knees when you don’t pay are giving refunds. Refunds. They’re… probably
going around door to door. “Hey, uh, sorry
about the Saints, man. “That’s a tough break.
Here’s your thumbs back. -My apologies.”
-Yeah, okay, but… okay, what do you want
the NFL to do about it? They can’t just replay
the whole game. You don’t have
to replay the game. This is a easy fix, man. The problem is that the NFL
doesn’t allow refs to review this type of play.
Which is stupid. ‘Cause any other
questionable call, they go and huddle
around that little TV like they’re watching
a peep show. So the NFL should just allow
instant replay for pass interference, too. That’s all you got to do. -It’s simple.
-(whooping, applause, shouting) You know what?
That’s a great idea, Roy. -Mm-hmm.
-I agree with you. In fact, we should
just use instant replay for everything in life. We’ve already got cameras
everywhere– traffic cameras,
body cameras. Did you know
that iPhones are built with the camera
already inside of them? Yeah. I think everyone
knows that, Roy. Well, they must have
just started doing it. Look, the point is,
anytime there’s a disagreement about anything,
anything in life, we should be able
to throw out a flag and check out
the instant replay. Two people fighting
over a parking spot? (imitates whistle blowing)
Go to the replay. The pickup truck got there
after the Prius, therefore the vegan
gets the parking space. -(laughter)
-Just throw the flag. Oh, oh, you want to split
the check 50/50 at dinner? -(imitates whistle blowing)
-Go to the replay, Debra. The tape shows
that you had more drinks and ate my cheese sticks
when I was in the bathroom. I’m only paying ten dollars! But… but, Debra,
if you’re watching this, I do hope we get a chance
to go out again. I really did feel a connection. You know what,
you really convinced me. That’s also a really great idea. I know.
I have great ideas, Trevor. That’s why you said
you’d give me a 20% raise. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
What are you talking about? I never said that. Oh, is that
what you think, Trevor? (imitates whistle blowing) (whistle blows) Roy Wood Jr. has challenged
the ruling at the desk. Let’s go to the replay
to see what Trevor said to Roy about giving him a 20% raise. You know what?
That’s a great idea, Roy. -Mm-hmm.
-I agree with you. Whoa, whoa, whoa.
No, no, no, wait. No. -(applause, whooping, cheering)
-No, no, no. No, no. You took me out of context.
You took me out of context. No. The challenge is upheld. Roy gets a 20% raise, and so does the referee. -See? We can’t lose.
-(cheering, applause) Get out of here. Roy Wood Jr.,
Michael Kosta, everybody.
