What I have issue with is the timing of those "mistakes" made by the refs. 3 of them were huge mistakes that either erased a big play or saved the Bills from losing. The same damn thing happened in cinci. 3 horrible calls made it a close game.....otherwise that would have been a decisive win as well.

Against a good opponent like the Ravens the officials will not allow us to win. The only chance we have of winning next week is if we blow them out. We'll need to put up some points because the Ravens will get plenty of help. We are held to a different set of rules then the rest of the league. It's a stacked deck.

If 3 poorly officiated games in the last 4 weeks doesn't convince you then I guess nothing will.

Year after Year the Steelers are one of the Least Penalized teams in the NFL. And the last 3 weeks have been horendous. Never seen anything like it. I know that on Almost Any Play they can Call Holding somewhere down the field, but must it be Every Big Play we make? . . The Bills played well in the 2nd half and without Aaron Smith in the game where is Lawrence Timmons gone to? He was making play after play in the first few weeks and I havent even noticed him the last few games.

What???? Have you ever heard of the term Steeler rules? Google it, this is not the first time the NFL has decided to change the style of play around the league to benefit the offences.

The powers that be luv to see high number offensive games.
I think the NFL is trying to cater to there new target demographic, you know the fans with the new jerseys with the tags hanging off them, the pink towel waving crowd that thinks we need cheerleaders and that actually like Steely Mcbeam.

Those types of fans get bored easy and tend not to see the beauty in a good low scoring defensive struggle. The Steelers have been made examples in the past and it is happening again. If you can't see that then you are not a very well informed fan of the game and this team.

The only BS calls I'm really tired of are Arians' , not the ones from the refs.

The only way we can stop hitting in the NFL is to ban such players. Touch is in and hitting is out. Get on your pantaloons.

I don't know about other, but I complain when any game is officiated badly. Were not he only one's getting screwed, but we are mostly screwed on the roughing penalties, because the league is trying to send us a message.

Anyone watch SNFootball? Chargers corners were getting away with a LOT of aggressive playing. Now I think that is how it should be played, but I know damn well, that most teams most nights are going to get burned a few PI penalties for the same type of play.



Side Note
Situation.....playoffs vs. NE were loosing, no hope of a come back. How about Harrison just take out his frustration on Brady closed fist style, least he knows that's acceptable.
