“The Falcons were ahead for 59 minutes and 3 seconds of a 60-minute game. That’s 98.3% of the game.”, she told the AP in a Skype call from the Atlanta Hilton. “Only 27% of the country wanted the Patriots to win! The fact that all the scoring through halftime was in Atlanta’s favor set the tone. That’s what reporters were reporting and that’s what a majority of the people watching wanted.”
Atlanta has a 99.3% chance of winning, per ESPN. That's where we had Trump's chances in Pennsylvania at 1:10AM on Election Night

Ms. Archibald went on to say, “The whole idea that there is a random coin toss was used to decide the winner seems unfair and I for one will not accept the results.”
Later today, Archibald will be meeting with league officials to look into why former President Bush wasn’t used for the overtime coin toss. George H.W. Bush flipped the coin to start the game which the Falcons won, while before overtime the former President was nowhere to be found and a random white referee flipped some coin.

The Rise Up for Fair Super Bowls political action committee is planning a news conference later this week to ask the Justice Department to look into the irregularities. Ms. Archibald went on to mention that President Trump said he thought New England would win by a touchdown and then did, “that’s not just a coincidence.”
