That's not only what I'm asserting, it's a fact, and every non-Steelers fan thinks so.
There was contact both ways. In fact, Hope held Jackson first. Jackson touched
Hope. He didn't create separation, that was already there. He didn't alter Hope's route in the slightest. This play goes uncalled 98% of the time.
A blatant offsides on the Townshend sack.
If the Locklear play was a hold, than Winstrom was held EVERY SINGLE PLAY. I'm not looking for the officials to call every tick-tack foul. I'm just looking for consistency, and Sunday there was NONE. The Steelers got called for zero holding penalties, yet the Seahawks get flagged for cheapies, flags thrown after
they get not one, but two, huge plays? Please.
And still, the Hasselbeck cutblock penalty was the worst of all.
The Phantom touchdown isn't a big deal to me. The Steelers would have almost certainly scored a TD on fourth. Likewise the T.O. after the clock expired. It was close enough that the refs let it go every game.
The D-Jack foot-kicking-pylon was a TD, but the officials didn't even want to review it? If the Hasselbeck fumble occured in the final two minutes, I bet the officials wouldn't have reviewed it.
I hope that Joey Porter realizes that the NFL wanted the Steelers to win. I also hope he bashes his offense for winning cheaply, with a trick play, instead of pounding the ball up the middle every play. After all, according to Porter, that's not real football, and the Steelers were scared of the Seahawks.
Oh, and CT, I wanted the Steelers to win. I admit that the Seahawks caught a break with the fumble that was ruled incomplete.
Did you believe that the officials were trying to tilt the field in the Colts' direction a few weeks ago? I did, and I bet you did too. Same thing happened Sunday.
