Disgruntled fans do work of Saints

The Associated PressNEW ORLEANS (AP) — Thousands of people attended the city of New Orleans’ protest parties on Super Bowl Sunday, and many of those who attended a special fundraiser contributed more than $57,000 for a foundation that works to improve the community.

Many believe a blown referee call in the NFC championship cost the New Orleans a chance to play for the Super Bowl title, and angry Saints fans organized a number of protest parties around the city Feb. 4, the day the game was played in Atlanta.

The Boycott Bowl featured more than 15 musical acts.

Boycott Bowl officials on Friday presented the NORD Foundation with a check for $57,404.36 from the street festival.
