About 48 hours away from kickoff.....starting to get the pre-game jitters.

My Packer neon is in my garage window facing my neighbor's house across the street....who's a Steeler's fan. I am keeping it on 24/7 indefinitely, I may even make it flash on/off come Sunday!

I'm planning on giving them a party tray Sunday before the game...it will be similar to the one in the Packers Sunday Ticket commercial last summer!

Worse yet, we are members of the same church and school. God have mercy on me!

All I hope is for a clean game, no weirdness from the referees, and no stupid moves.

+1. No phantom calls, no sideline trips, no....... I've been a fan of both teams in the very long ago, before I lived in a City with legendary teams..... the Niners of the 90's/sometimes da Raidahs. [sob. sob.:nono2: ]

Agree.

Folks still talk about that final (non-catch) endzone catch the last time the Steelers "won" the SB.

We don't need any of that stuff...just a game to enjoy.

I am on the go packer side but agree that I hope the refs don't make any bad calls and the coaches stick with their game plans.

I also hope the commercials are good too!

Sorry - photos show that was not the case. No need for history to repeat itself.

NFL Rulebook in effect at the time:

Part II Rule 56, para B: "The footwear of a player in contact with that footwear which is in contact with the turf shall constitute and be construed as both feet either inbounds or out-of-bounds as the case may be."

Q.E.D. :D

Unfortunately, when the actual dual foot contact was done...he was already on the out-of-bounds line...even one of the officials admitted later that they ruled it wrong on the field...they should have ruled out of bounds, and then looked to see if there was visual evidence to overturn it...

Watch the video. When was picture taken?? The players are moving!! Lol

OK...then see the actual photo sequence for yourself...its a proven no catch.

Steelers should have lost that game. BTW - I'm not a Steelers Fan or Arizona Cardinals fan...but this Superbowl officiating injustice has been very well documented.

The whole point is that having a game decided at the very end on a controversial play is not a good thing for the sport, no matter what team comes out ahead.

Lets just hope the game Sunday is more cut and dry, regardless of the winning team either way.

Excuse after excuse. Steelers won number six on the right call. End of story.

Anyways I digress. Let's hope for a fair game and go Steelers. Should be a great game. Both teams are solid.

Obviously, they're not going to overturn that ruling now.
