As for all the Steelers fans coming in here calling people "cry babies" and whiners and whatnot... Think about a few weeks ago when you had that poor call on the Int against the Colts... even though you won, we had to listen to all of you, including Porter, "whine" and "cry" about that ONE bad call... What if you had lost? You all would have said that it was because of the Refs... I'm not a Seahawks fan, but I respect the fact that they can take responsibilty, be gracious, and be men... That's the role they should take... As for myself and other fans of the game... We can bitch about whatever we want, cuz when you think about it, we pay these guys salaries, including the refs... there wouldn't even be pro sports without fans to support it... So I think we deserve better than to have games shifted by poor officiating... I understand that it's tough to officiate in the NFL, and I can't even imagine how much pressure there is in game, let alone the Super Bowl! But I think they need to re-evaluate their positions and realize that they are there to "manage" the game, not manipulate... keep your stinkin flag in your pocket! It really has gotten out of hand and something needs to be done... All that said... All credit to the Steelers for making plays when they needed to. Kudos to the Seahawks for playing hard and being gracious and maintaining integrity in defeat. And tomatoes to the officials for abusing their power... Time for a referee Pow-wow...

I disagree Weedy... if football is a game of inches, and one play can change the momentum of a game or seal a win, then one terrible call, actually, at least 3 terrible calls, can alter the outcome of a game... No, they still might not have won, as a matter of fact, I had the Steelers to win anyway, but at least it would have been a different game, a better game to play, a better game to watch... The players deserve that, the fans deserve it too...

That's Matt taking responsibility for what he did... Who's gonna take responsibility for the refs?

It's all good... My perspective is that the game was poorly regulated by the officials in favor of the Steelers... if it had been in favor of the Seahawks, I would have felt the same way... now the Titans... I would have been happy... just like you are right now ;o)

You're missing the point steeler girl... I'm glad that you're glad your team won...

Yea, the Refs were waiving their terrible towels enough for everybody

and this coming from a Steeler fan... Didn't make the plays? They did make the plays but every time they did, it was called back by thee idiots! I'm not a fan of either team, but I am a fan of GOOD officiating... I really think they had too much of an effect on the outcome of this game... The Steelers very likely could have still won, and I'm glad for Cowher and Bettis especially... It just would have been a lot more interesting to watch if the referees weren't total tards! That win was handed to them on a silver platter... That's not a Steeler type win...

That was the biggest load-a-crap I have ever seen... I'm not a Steeler fan or a Seahawk fan, but theSeahwaks out-played the Steelers tonight... The referees totally ruined what could have been a great game to watch and not so SUPER... something has to be done about the officiating in the NFL... I mean.. What the freak are these guys on? Ridiculous that they have that much effect on the outcome of any game, let alone the Super Bowl

Super Bowl match-up: Pats v. Wash.... That's my word!!
posted by hbzflow at 12:56 AM on January 07
You all are crazy if you think the Jags are going to beat the Pats! The patriots are a proven team who is well coached and has adjusted to their injury problems. Jacksonville, on the other hand, is just now getting a semi-healthy Byron Leftwich back in the mix... No way!! I'm not a Patriot fan, but only a fool can see that New England is the favorite by a longshot!!.... As for the Bears v. Pat rematch... Your half right... the Bears will be eliminated in their 1st playoff match-up... That's my word!!
