I know it doesn't matter but just for the sake if it, I would like to get your perspective on this.

I failed to see indisputable evidence that Ben was down before the ball crossed the line on his rushing TD. It seems that Ben had his back laying on a AZ player and it doesn't look like he ever touched the ground before the line.
The initial call was TD therefore I would like to know what made the refs overturn the call?

After a few replays, i was able to see that his knee hit the ground before he could stretch into the endzone. Would have liked the 7, but can take the 3

I'm glad they overturned it. The whiners are bitching about the refs enough as it is.

I agree although not so sure it should have been overturned.

Maybe I needed to see more replays cause it was far from being indisputable to me.

Ain't that the truth!

Cowboys fans have now come to the consensus in their forum that 4 of our SBs were awarded by the refs. The last two - and of course, the 2 we beat them.

What mental midgets.

They'll whine and bitch about everything anyway. They got 2 plays overturned, Ben's knee was down in the first one. The second one looked like a fumble. But the thing is, The Steelers overcome the bad calls. You get the job done no matter what.

Yah well, 50% of the cowboy players during their 3 titles were all cocaine induced junkies. You don't see anyone from Pittsburgh mentioning that do you?

It didn't look to me like his knee ever hit the ground -- you could still see the shadow under it, and then he got twisted sideways and the knee came up. Unless I was just blind or looking at the wrong knee or something.

Honestly, the first thing that corssed my mind when they overturned it was, "Well, that was a make-up call for Ben's touchdown in the Seattle game."

Me neither, and don't understand the other guy's comments. We won fair and square, and nobody's whining here.

Just to give you a taste.

Hard luck Cards. Great to see they made a game of it though. Wasn't able to watch it live but it was great to be able to follow what was happening from here in Australia on game center. Thankyou

Where was the booth review on the last play of the game? 5 seconds remaining, that was *not* a fumble. Warner's arm was in forward motion at the time, therefore it should have been ruled incomplete, and a booth review would have caught it. Would the Cardinals have gotten to the endzone with one last play? We'll never know, but thanks to the lack of booth review there, we'll never know who *really* won.

this game was rigged just like when they played the seahawks. the refs called some bull***t penalties. that last play for the cards was called wrong. ***k the steelers i would be ashamed to be a fan of them. how does it feel to know that both of the superbowls that they won in the past four years were the refs against the opposing team.

I thought the ending of the Super Bowl was very exciting. I was rooting for the Cardinals, but as everyone knows, the Steelers won. All in all it was a great game.

90% of the plays the steelers get away with holding and when things aern't going there way they show a lot of unsportsmanlike behavior like when he was beating the crap out of him on the punt which atleast they called

How can this bad officiating go on?? The last fumble as called was not due to Warners arm was moving in an attempt to pass. I absolutly hate this time crap that is driven by tv networks. It looked just like they wanted to call the game because it was already past 10 pm eastern. Either the replay needs to be better or the officials need to be replaced by cameras & sensors since they can't seem to get most of the calls right.
