A Los Angeles Rams fan has started a petition to removed Bill Vinovich as
the head official for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the New
Orleans Saints.

Andrew Liptock started the petition, citing the fact that the Rams are 0-8
in games officiated by Vinovich.

Liptock also pointed out that the opposing team has never been assessed
more penalty yardage than the Rams in games overseen by Vinovich's crew.

Liptock's petition has already garnered more than 1,000 signatures toward
a goal of 1,500.

According to J.B. Long of ESPN Los Angeles, the Rams' 0-8 record in games
refereed by Vinovich has been accrued since 2006.

This season, the Rams lost games to both the Saints and Philadelphia
Eagles with Vinovich's crew in charge of the action.

The 45-35 loss to the Saints in Week 9 featured a questionable call that
saw Rams punter Johnny Hekker get called short of the first-down marker on
a fake punt:

That call was a potential momentum-shifter, as the score was tied 14-14
when it happened.

In the Week 9 meeting between the Rams and Saints, the Rams were penalized
four times for 32 yards, and the Saints were penalized just twice for 20
yards.

As part of his argument to remove Vinovich, Liptock also noted that he is
the only official to ever eject current Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald
and former Rams defensive end Chris Long.

Assuming Vinovich and his crew remain in place, they will be on hand at
the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Sunday to witness who will
represent the NFC in Super Bowl LIII.
