compared to the last two SB the Stealers "won" This was a low penalty game. There was like 2 called?
SB XL had so many drive killing bad calls it was ridiculous, and as a Cardinals fan I'll never forget this non call: Posted Image


Not sure why that "non" call will stick with you? It was a clean hit as you can see over and over again he was hit on the side in the shoulder so good job refs! :nono2:

There should have been an after the play penalty on the on-side kick. The Saints bench was on the field interfering, including multiple coaches while the refs were looking for the ball.

While I don't think this non-call made any difference overall as it would have only given the Saints a different starting point, it should have been called in my opinion.

Cheers,
Tom


I thought the same thing, as player after player came out onto the field to get involved...

But, I also agree with your second point... the way the Saints marched down the field, did it *really* make a difference that there wasn't a penalty? They're on such a high at that point, I don't think a few extra yards would have made a difference.

If I'm the person responsible for grading the officials, there are definitely flaws that I could find... but I really thought that they called it the same for both sides, so despite the fact that I don't personally care for the way they called the game, the playing field was, IMO, level (well, actually, it's slightly crowned, but... you know what I mean. :P), and as a spectator, having the game called "fair" is more important that whether it's called "tight" or "loose".

sure looks like two hands on his back to me.. and I'm NOT an Arizona fan.

I thought the officials did an excellent job in the Super Bowl. Congratulations to the Saints and their fans.

I am not sure I have seen a single person (except this thread) complain about the refs for the Super Bowl

Overall was a great game

Better team won

Agree. The Refs generally do a pretty good job.

Can't say the same about the previous Superbowl - stolen by the refs with that video clip and the non-catch by Santonio Holmes in the end zone. (BTW - I could care less about the Arizona team). :eek2:

Oh, puhleeze! That whole tired argument and pic has already been debunked by the NFL. Steelers won fair and square. Get over it already.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

:lol::lol::lol:

Denied yes, debunked no. :nono2:

The photo tells it all.

Like they're gonna come back after the game and after numerous replays and say "yeah....we totally blew the call, but what the heck..." :D:lol:

Then you haven't been paying attention much these many years, have you? The NFL is not one to be afraid to publicly state when its officials err. They backed up the officials' call in that game and debunked the one photo that you love to show with evidence that Holmes did, in fact, touch the ground with both feet. Of course, I'm sure you won't post one of those pics. (And no, I'm not going to.)

Guess so.

No, just looking for excuses as to why they legitimately lost the game.

OK sir.

No skin off my nose. ;):D

By the way...as someone who has numerous friends and work collegues in the Pittsburgh area....they all (about 25 of them) have repeatedly stated at various times to me that they "know they got away with that one". It would appear that the stigma of that lingers on, even to the "victors".

But its history now, so we'll let it rest in peace.;):)
