    Everyone here knows my opinion of the officiating. It was horrendous. And I certainly haven't been silent about it! Regardless, there are two groups of people that can not be blamed in the least. That is the Steelers organization, and there fans. If I have come out sounding harsh towards either group, I apologize. I have not gone to any Steeler boards starting flame wars, and have kept my discusions to Pats boards and a couple of threads in the general forum at KFFL.

    As much as the Seahawks got the shaft, so did the Steelers. They very likely may have won had the officiating evened out. They had already won a game were the officiating was blatantly against them (Indy), something the Pats were unable to do. But they were not given the oportunity. Because of the uproar over officiating, the game was stolen from them as much or more then Seattle.

    I also think this post below by PATSummerallofthe80s is spot on. He makes no excuses. And I especially agree with the part I bolded. I am certainly not trying to get on anyone's case here. You have to look no further then the threads the last few days to see that I am one of the people he is talking about. But he has a point!

    So please keep this thread civil. If you can't say congratulations, please just don't post in this thread. If you can, it would probably be a good gesture.

    Congrats Steeler fans. Hope our teams meet again in the AFCC game next year. And of course I hope the Pats smoke the Steelers! :)

    Said it in the last thread, and I'll say it here... Congrats Steelers.

    I hope we annihilate you beyond all recognition next year!

    And I can't wait to play the 2006 champs in the 2006-2007 playoffs, so that we can beat them yet again.

    Personally, I prefer to recognize that we have great teams in the AFC, six of which should have been favored to beat Seattle. I look forward to playing the top teams, mainly in the playoffs. It is there that we see what we are about, it is in the playoffs against top teams that we are tested.

    For four of six years under Belichick, we reached the playoffs. In three years, we won all confrontations, even against the 16-1 Steelers. This year, we were stuffed. We'll be back. Victory is sweeter for me when we beat the best. We did in last year's Championship Game. And they came back to do what we couldn't do. Congrats!

    Good point about the Steelers getting the shaft as well.

    After waiting for a quarter century, the Steelers and their fans have a tarnished Lombardi trophy - thanks mainly to the refs.

    Whether it was the called back Seahawks TD, or Rothelesberger's TD that he freely admits didn't think made it in, the Steelers are victims just like the Seahawks and all NFL fans.

    I feel sorry for them - I really do. It's not their fault.

    Absolutely. I have Steeler fan friends and they have been curiously silent. It's too bad because they have waited patiently for this and to get it like this has to bite the big one. :(

    This is exactly the way I feel too! The fault lies with the NFL officials for tarnishing the XL trophy!

    F the Steelers and F their fans. It has nothing to do with the game, how it was played, the offciating or any like that. I has nothing to do with the Seahawks losing.

    It has to do with the Steelers fans and players disrespecting our two MVP's at the SB game. That classless act earns us an apology before we should give out any Congrats to them.

    I still offer congrats to the steelers for being crowned champs, but I can fully stand by your sentiments here.

    It was classless, and did piss me off.

    I respectfully call bull**** Nut.
    And I'll tell you a little story of the 2002 Pats-Steelers game wherein many many Pats fans at the game where chanting to Bettis that he was a rapist. So don't talk to me about class. (Turned out the woman accussing Bettis and cohorts set up the whole thing to try and blackmail him).
    And I was at the game and yes I did boo Brady. I don't understand what he was doing there for the coin flip. That has always been reserved for a retired player or some other notable person. Not a current player.

    I disrespectfully call you a complete idiot if you can't see the difference and you were one of the morons booing.

    I'm not even going to try to explain it because you are too dumb to understand it.
