VIDEO: College Basketball Announcer Bill Raftery Takes Funny Shot at Saints Over Foul Call in Villanova-Providence


The New Orleans Saints haven't had the greatest 30 days in the eyes of the sports world. From underperforming in a home playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings to recently being in the news for all the wrong reasons, it's been a nightmare month for these folks. And somehow they can't even avoid getting savaged on a broadcast for a Big East basketball game.

During Saturday's Villanova-Providence tilt, broadcaster Bill Raftery was doing some analysis of a foul call on an inbound play. When describing the contact made, he could help but wonder if the Saints would get the same call with a hilarious comment.

Ironically, the contact made between the players slightly resembled what happened between PJ Williams and Kyle Rudolph on the Vikings' winning play in overtime. Raftery's comment even got a chuckle out of Ian Eagle, but will offer little comfort to Saints fans, who are still sore from that game.

It was just another moment of brilliance in a long and storied career for Raftery.
