    ...I will have to give up on the NFL.

    From the play-offs to the Stuporbowl just ridiculous. And embarrassing for us to be fans of something that is becoming meaningless by joke, no accountability, awful officiating.

    As fans we need a league wide uprising. Flood league offices with emails about how horrible it has been and how unhappy we are.

    What a Snow job from start to finish that was, the reffing was horrible in the entire playoffs and in the Superbowl the horrible reffing took center stage.

    Guy: Hey Heinz Ward! Your team's just been handed a superbowl by the NFL's marketing department! What are you going to do now?

    Heinz Ward: I'm going to Disneyworld with the head of the marketing department, Vince McMahon!!!!!

    If the NFL doesn' fix this garbage I'll never watch it again, what a total joke.

    The sad thing is all the Steeler fans out there will think they actually won it on merit.

    I honestly can't take another postseason of this. If we see the same type of spit next year, I may just walk away from the league.

    This was a black eye to the NFL tonight. They best take heed,just because your sport is #1 in the United States tonight, doesn't mean it will be tomorrow. Their are alot of pissed off fans out there right now. Nuetral fans who give a flying hoot who wins,but discusted all the same by the horrid officiating on the biggest stage of it's sport. They need to get better.

    Btw,had we played one of these teams tonight I don't think the officiating would of been in question,they could of blown 3 or 4 calls and we still would of won by 21 or so.

    But, who cares about an actual competitive game based on what the players on the field do? There was a STORY here... Bettis' homecoming, in front of his family, his hometown, in his last game befoer retirement... I mean, how could you NOT expect teh Stealers to win?

    The touching story is more important than the actual game. Welcome to the new NFL. :mad:

    I'm very close to just saying screw the NFL... Something needs to be done. The biggest REAL NON-MANUFACTURED storyline of the post-season has been the officiating. It's a black eye for the league...

    well

    What is truly sad is the fact that anyone tuning in tonight who is not a die'hard fan already--will probably never want to watch a game again because it appears fixed. I swear i thought i saw "hulk hogan" waving a terrible towel while getting ready to throw a leg drop!

    This travesty has to end before the NFL is DONE.

    The NFL has no competition. The only way this ever changes is if Polian starts complaining. But he won't, since the Colts are the primary beneficiary of NFL bias.

    I'm not sure if my feelings are biased because I'm a Pats fan but the officiating was horrible in this game, the Steelers-Indy game and our game. It's really making me take a step back and re-evaluate being a fan of the game. Very disappointing...

    WWFNFL. I don't have much to add here. The outcome of this game was decided by the refs, period. :mad:
