Saints News: 12/7/15: Sean Payton Unhappy with Officiating After Latest Saints Loss

From Payton said early in his postgame press conference that he wasn’t going to comment on the officiating during the game, but that vow didn’t wind up being a particularly long-lasting one. Payton was upset on the field about the lack of a pass interference flag on Josh Norman on the Saints’ final offensive play and upset after the game about the officials, who he suggested weren’t up to the task of working high school games, missing instances when Carolina had too many men on the field.
