I thought it wasn't incompetence but prejudice on the part of the officials. Every time Seattle threaten to score, you KNEW KNEW the officials were gonna throw the flag. You KNEW they were NOT going to let Seattle take the lead or gain any momentum. ALL the close calls went AGAINST Seattle. When Hasselbeck hit the ground, you KNEW they were gonna call it a FUMBLE. Pittsburgh got all the BENEFIT of the doubt. Seattle got all the BUM calls. .
