An officiating crew led by referee Walt Anderson has been assigned by the NFL to work Super Bowl XLV between the Steelers and Green Bay Packers at Cowboys Stadium Sunday.

Anderson is in his 15th season as an NFL game official, but has never been the referee in the Super Bowl. He was a line judge in Super Bowl XXXV. He has been a referee since 2003 and has officiated in 13 playoff games.

The other members of the crew for Sunday's game are Chad Brown (umpire), Kent Payne (head linesman), John Hussey (line judge), Doug Rosenbaum (field judge), Mike Weatherford (side judge) and Scott Helverson (back judge).

The crew has a combined 77 years of NFL officiating experience.

Under the NFL officiating program's evaluation system, the highest-rated eligible officials at each position earn the right to work the Super Bowl. Super Bowl officials must have at least five years of NFL experience and previous playoff assignments.

I did find one thing about him. He has called the least amount roughing the passer penalties over the past three years of any NFL official. That's good for Silverback and Lamar.

They're never called on him anyway, so what's the difference?

I'm good with Walt Anderson.. Fond memories of him really. I think he is afraid to call penalties on our beloved Stillers D. He actually looks afraid of Harrison. I feel good about the officiating crew!

Good grief!.. Go ahead and take 7 off the board for the Steelers and we still win that game.. Sunday can't come fast enough!

I'm sorry, I made a mistake. Walt Coleman is the man! Too be bad he isn't officiating! I believe Coleman is afraid of Harrison!
