The AFC West officiating has not been kind to us over the years. HOWEVER, like the Steelers team that won in spite of several bad calls against the Chargers a couple years ago, adversity is something to be overcome, not to feel sorry about after the fact.

I have always prided myself on Steeler fans not being like the whiny Scoobyhawk fans who look to the refs everytime they lose a game. Some of you Steeler fans only got a small sample of it from SBXL. It's like that all the time up here, and it makes me sick to hear them.

But yeah, I can see the disparity I suppose.

its not even about getting penalty yards.. i am just sick of seeing our qb getting killed when we get called time and time again for doing far less to opposing team's qbs. i just dont want ben getting hurt because defenders are allowed to have a free-for-all against him.

one time he is going to get hurt badly and then we will be in trouble. they need to be consistent in their calling. i think that is what we are upset about.

I seriously thought Ben got hurt in that play where the Broncos threw him down after the whistle. It looked like his neck snapped and hit the turf.

Some iffy calls? Sure. Reason why we lost the game? No way.

Personally, I strongly doubt that there is some grand NFL conspiracy going around when it comes to the officiating and Ben Roethlisberger. I find it hard to imagine Goodell and all the NFL officials in the league meeting in a dimly lit and secluded warehouse and laying down the ground rules when it comes to Ben Roethlisberger.

Although it is funny and amusing to think about. Maybe Mulder and Scully can crack the case.

Not saying there is a conspiracy. But like everybody has said, we are sick of see our QB getting boby slammed to the ground AFTER THE WHISTLE has blown the play dead and there be no penalty. We barely touch their QB while he still has the ball and is not doing a give-up slide and we get flagged for roughing the QB, or Unsportmanslike Conduct. Then you see the QB getting up off the ground smiling. That's what pisses me off. Call the game fair and square and I won't have a problem if we lose.

Never said you in particular.

And I agree, there is a lack of consistency throughout the whole league (hence, "iffy calls"). Not just with our beloved Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger in particular.
