People who live on the Pacific coast whining about "fairness." Gee, imagine that. All we need to know about people's judgment out there is that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has had their rulings overturned more than any other federal appellate court. Life ain't "fair" when people out their don't get their way.

I have no sympathy for the 49ers. The same thing their fans arguing about now, Falcons fans could argue about against the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. Roddy White was being pulled to the ground on the last play of the Falcons' last drive. No flag, 49ers win. I had no sympathy for the Falcons either, considering they blew a 17-point halftime lead at home.

If anything, the 49ers got lucky when Haloti Ngata got hurt, because the Ravens struggled to stop the run in his absence. If Ngata didn't get hurt, then the game wouldn't have even been close.

If Ben doesn't get hurt, the Steelers make the playoffs. Injuries are part of the NFL world, bro. That argument makes no sense.

Injuries are part of the game, but my argument makes plenty of sense. As luck would have it, Haloti Ngata was the Raven who got hurt. He's one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL. If the Raven who got hurt was, say, Courtney Upshaw, then the impact on the Ravens defense would have been less negative. In Chess, if you lose a pawn, so what? If you lose a knight, then it stings a bit, and if you lose your queen, then it stings a lot. The 49ers are lucky the Ravens lost one of their stronger Chess pieces. That enabled them to get back in the game as quickly as they did.

You gotta play with who you have. Maybe Ngata woulda got a stupid roughing the passer penalty and extended a 49er drive that changed the game. As luck would have it, Ben got hurt so the Steelers missed the playoffs and the Ravens won the SB.

Whiners gonna whine. Honestly, I appreciated the whole 'Let 'em play' thing. The refs kept the flags in the pocket, and they called the game consistently all the way through. This was one of the best Superbowls I can remember vis-a-vis the officiating.
