I went to Wikepedia.com and did a search on Superbowl XL. There was a section on the 'questionable' calls. All of them were calls that favored the Steelers. I edited the page to include some other questionable calls such as the obvious block in the back on Ben during Seattle's interception...which if called would have put the ball on the 50 yd. line rather than the 20.. making it much more difficult to have scored. I included references from yahoo sports. The next day, my edits were removed. I guess the reviewers of Wikepedia have a NW latte class bias.

Wikipedia is the "World Weekly News" of online reference sources...if you are looking to write a scholarly piece on "Batboy", there's no better source, but, for just about every other subject, best to look for legitimate sources.

Bingo...it's a handy site to just look something up, but if you're doing a research paper or something of importance, it would be best to find some primary sources. You should take everything on Wikipedia with a grain of salt.

There was no reference that I could find regarding who removed my edits. I realize that everything on wikipedia should be taken with a grain of salt.. but it is annoying not to have both viewpoints represented.
