on nfl network, every "biased" call is examined and put to rest, the clearest explanation better than anyone of us outside of the NFL can come up with, pretty accurate stuff

i'll give them the hasselback chop i thought that was a little kick-em-while-theyre-down call but those others were pretty accurate that just pulled them at wrong times to kill momentum but it was too late for them by then

I have not listened to it yet, but do they bother bringing up the calls that went against us? Or do we continue to ignore those and only focus on Seattle?

Or do we continue to ignore those and only focus on Seattle? no. they only address the 5 big plays that had all seattle fans, steeler haters, 20 million houswives watching thier 1st game of the year, and john madden in an uproar:rolleyes:

thanks for the link. Very nice to hear the explanations. So 1 out of 5 were wrong with no mention of the calls that were not called for the benefit of us. Not that I lost sleep but it makes me feel a lot better

Very nice. 4/5 is not bad. I agree that the tackle penalty should not have been called, but that didn't affect the outcome of the game. I hope all these little seababies stop crying. Thanks for the link man!

I think he's refering to Parrera. At least, I hope he's refering to Parrera.... :grin:

Thanks for the link! I had been watching Inside the NFL every Wednesday this season, and forgot to tune in for this one...

I too watched this when it was on and was grateful to see it.
It's too bad that they had to CREATE an episode such as that..
but like you said, I think it put things in perspective for the complainers!

Thank you very much for the link. Unfortunately I don't get NFL Network, so it was nice to get to watch that. It's good to see the head of NFL officials address this issue head on and take a firm stance on this matter. I thought his analysis of those 5 calls was spot on as well. It was fair and exact in my opinion and I agree 100% with his breakdown.

I will be taking this in to work. Maybe it will shut up a couple of the Browns fans that won't give up the ref crap.

Nope, the crybabies are still calling them bad calls. Funny thing though, none of em' wanna talk about the offensive PI call Heath got on a freakin' screen pass or the fumble by Stephens that was ruled incomplete. They can't seem to accept the fact that refs aren't perfect and that the Steelers ARE the World Champs. :)

I won't get into it, but Seahawks got a lot of breaks on no-calls and of course the already mentioned Heath Miller interference call that I think the head of referees wanted to talk about but Rich Eisen refused to look at any other play that didn't make the Seahawks look like they got a raw deal.

I still don't see how Ben getting crushed from behind on his INT is not a penalty and they start at about the 40 yard line instead of inside the 20.
