Falcons and Rams fans breathed a seemingly simultaneous sigh of relief when New Orleans fell to Los Angeles 26-23 in overtime during the NFC Championship on Sunday. Atlanta fans didn't want to see bitter rivals play in the big game on their home turf. And L.A., well just wanted to win.

But the game was not without controversy. Saints fans were crying foul on the officiating of the game. Some even went as far in their Monday morning quarterbacking as to offer free eye exams for the officials.

Monday evening, electronic billboard broadcasted Saint's fans displeasure. The tableaux read "NFL Bleaux it!" and "Saints Got Robbed!"

And for those asking "Who dat?" when it comes to who is responsible for the ads, Matt Bowers, a New Orleans car dealer, took full credit.

This, of course, has not been the only trolling billboards as Atlanta prepares to host the Super Bowl. Earlier this month, Pepsi, the official soft drink of the NFL, started to paint the international home of Coca-Cola blue. Signs which read "Looks who's in town for Super Bowl LIII have lit up the Atlanta skyline. But Coke fans probably weren't seeing as much red as the Saints are at this point.
