    Pitt player off sides two plays in a row no call, phantom holding against Seattle? I think when teams have been screwed by the refs this year it completely changes their mindset and, and the flow of the game!

    True true

    On the sack there was blatant offsides on Pitt.

    Now this Hasselbeck 'fumble' just proves the refs are crooked.

    The officials in almost all of the playoff games this year are either monumentally incompetent or crooked, either way this whole playoff season was a snow job.

    Is anyone thinking what I'm thinking? Perhaps after failing at the XFL Vince McMahon got silently involved in the NFL. Maddox was the XFL MVP you know....

    spooky.

    The fix was in. If the Colts could not win, the Steelers are the next best thing.

    It is going to be a long off season.

    I expect Seattle fans feel like we did after the Denver mugging... only more so.

    The TD ruled out for offensive interference and the catch at the 1 ruled out for holding were both soooo marginal - 14 points right there.

    Well, from the beginning it was a Steelers fest anyway. The Seahawks were barely treated as if they were even in the Superbowl, and the refs treated them contemptuously as well.

    I think the OPI call was tough, but the guy did push a bit and the defender took a little step back. That sealed it. I don't think the push caused the defender to move, they just happened co-incidentally. Having to make that call at full speed makes it tough for the Zebra to call it any other way.

    Damn right about that. They got jobbed on both of those huge plays. Any team can overcome one huge jobbing, but two starts to get in your head. But Seattle play-calling was shakey at best. Lots of pass plays were goofy and run plays on 2nd & 3rd and long had me wondering if the coaches were nuts.

    The thing that bothered me most about that holding play was that I saw the Steelers get away with the same thing at least 3-4 times before that penalty. I think it was a hold, as determined by the definition of holding, but you can't call it for one team and then call it on the other.

    It was terrible officiating. This whole offseason has been atrocious officiating-wise, I really hope the NFL looks into it.

    Terrible game. Terrible teams. Whatever. I guess they thought the Pats were a terrible team when they beat the Rams...so...

    Next year here we come.

    If he keeps doing it, it must be legal.

    Dan Klecko's dad, Joe, used to always line up in the neutral zone, but was never called for it. That reminds me of the lazy, incompetant baseball umpires who would always call the outside strike on balls a good half a foot off the black.
    p.s.: Was there ever a ground-level shot, from the line of scrimmage, of the 3rd and 28 pass? The football may have been inside the 40 when it left his hand.
    Between the officiating and Seattle's play-calling (and dropped passes), the Arizona Cardinals would have won tonight.
