!!!!!!!!!!

After watching it I think the ball crossed the plane but the hit knocked it back but it was hard to tell.

I am sure Steeler fans KNOW it was a TD and Seahawks fans Know it WAS NOT at TD

That was a 11 point win with 14 points worth of ref calls. I DON'T care about who won or lost, I just don't want to see poor officiating, especially at this level.

I can't speak about the network you watched the game on, but ours........from start to finish of the game I was complaining about the predominance of Steelers coverage, it was like it was a forgone conclusion, some one know something and the game was edited as such. To use, it was way to obvious, even the Steelers guys in our bunch acknowledged the obvious - between the refs and the networks, it was like a fixed game.

Could not agree more. I'm a long suffering Jets fan and had no dog in this fight. The "non catch" which rolled out of bound at the 10, the 3rd down where the seattle TE was tackled and the ball was clearly chest high and beyond the 1st down marker, ref moves the ball back 2 feet and the chains are 1 foot short of a 1ST down, the Roth touchdown was a disgrace after the call I just referred to. The announcers ( and I like Madden) were trained not to voice an opinion or show a replay in any controversial play. A disgrace to the NFL! I find the NBA unwatchable and the NFL is on the same path. Thank God for College basketball and high schoo,l sports where the true meaning of competition still exists. I'm not a gambler but the fix seemed to be apparent in this game.

I haven't had an Iron City Beer since I went to my room mates house over a CHristmas vacation back in 1973. They had the beer in Christmas cans so you could decorate your tree with them.

The refs made some bad calls, but what about clock management at the end of the first half and the game?

That was pretty piss poor as well.

There were also those 3 dropped passes by trash talking Jerramy Stevens, and that brilliant pass from Hasselbeck to the Steeler's Ike Taylor, to enable the Steeler TD drive sealing the game. A few questionable (and important) calls did go against the Seahawks, but they also screwed up plenty all by themselves, and then, there was another team out there playing against them.

Here's something interesting I heard the other day.......
It is said that there was more money gabbled on the Super Bowl Game then there was for the whole season "combined".

I still can't over look the selection of the head ref for the game, arenít the refs picked for the Super Bowl because they have the best records? Thatís what I was always lead to believe, but in this case the best guy didnít get the job. The ref that was picked had a record of 23% or the time in over ruling a decision that was made on the field. Soooooooo, the people that are into fixing games didnít need to get to the ref, they just had to get to some of the linesmen and because someone picked the ref that only over turns 23% of the calls.......well you get the picture.
