    I don't care anymore. In my opinion, Seattle had the SB stolen from them. It doesn't matter to me anymore. I just want to talk New England Patriots football again. I want the team to be relevant again. Everyone has a 0-0 record now. Pittsburgh won, congratulations to them. My attention has officially shifted to next season.

    Dude, you've got me all wrong. I'm not trying to stir up any trouble, I just can't take much more of this "Steelers are the best team in football stuff".

    You're right. Forget I said it.

    I've been talking Pats all day. It's next year now. Free agency, the combine, the draft, I'm a happy guy.

    It's been less than 24 hours since we all watched a Superbowl in which the officiating appeared to effect the outcome of the game in a way that favored a team with a better storyline. Most of us who are discussing this are doing so this with an eye to next season. The Patriots were effected by similarly abyssmal officiating in their division game on the road against the Broncos, and oddly the Steelers would have been too if the Colts had not self destructed.

    I don't want to be discussing officiating effecting our 4th in 6 campaign next season. So the more we talk about it now perhaps the more note the media will take and hopefully the NFL will do something about it. OK? You want to bury your head in the sand and return to discussing things we cannot influence that are months away to boot like FA and the draft, be my guest. Just don't be upset if we do everything right and end up getting screwed out of a Lombardi because the officiating still sucks. It will if everyone just moves on - and the NFL will be ecstatic if we do.

    I agree, but do more and steady posts about bad officiating on boards like this cause some kind of background hum that Tagliabue can hear? I mean, what good can it do? Some petitions were started, OK, but will they ever get to an office that can do some good? In an ideal world, maybe.

    Ok

    Here's some Patriot talk. On Espn radio Sal Palintonio (sp) said he had an 'off the record' talk with Brady before the SB game.

    He said the the conversation revealed that Tom felt sick knowing that the Patriots could beat either one of the teams playing in the SB.

    If it was off the record then why did ole Sallie mention it on national radio?

    Really? Way to go, Sal, it's "off the record" for a reason.

    But even so, Brady was right.

    I missed that. I tuned in get Felgers read on all this but after five minutes of listening to his incompetent substitute co-host (Cafardo) and Sal Pal ballwashing Ben's bright future (while ignoring his 22 QB rating) and bashing a Seattle team (Sallie says this proved his contention they were weak and the Steelers proved what a warrior force they are) that gave the Stillers all they could handle without 12th man interference from the zebras for three and a half quarters, I shut it off.

    I think it was on Pardon the Interruption today (they hated the Super Bowl) that they commented on how it must have killed both the Patriots and Colts that they could have beaten either of those teams yesterday.

    I think it was PTI anyway... might be wrong...

    Also, I saw Tony Dungy interviewed on a Canadian show and when asked which QB he'd like if not Manning he said Rothlesberger... :rolleyes:

    Well, that was probably a savvy self-preservation move by Dungy. Can you imagine if he had said Brady? The fans of Indy would have had a collective meltdown.

    Reason #25 why a Dungy team will never be in the SB.

    Tom Jackson rated us the #1 team for the 2006 on Sportscenter. Trying to endear himself to Belichick, maybe. :p

    Hey, look at all the Patriots talk now. Brady's gay clothes. A possible Seahawks troll telling us the Patriots suck becase his team lost.

    As far as I am concerned, the SB was over when the first bad flag robbed Seattle of a score. The Steelers are paper champs and Ben Roethlisberger is a freaking joke QB...... Cannot wait to see what BB and a real pro QB have in store for us. Go and take what yours, New England! :rocker:
