Default Still whining about SB XL

When I'm bored, I like to go to the Seahawks board. And it seems like every other thread, they mention the SB, and how they got cheated. Thought I'd share this little nugget.

http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=114#s...1938&t=1957680

I just want to beat them with something, but then I realize these are probably people that didn't even know there was a football team in Seattle till 2005.

Well, I have to admit I'd probably still be - maybe not whining, but still resentful - if we had lost the Colts playoff game because of Troy's wrongfully overturned interception. I mean, that would have sewn up the game and instead the Colts got a TD and were right back in it. It was pure luck that Vanderjakt's FG was wide - they could have easily tied the game and then, who knows what might have happened? And we would still be trying for our 5th SB win and Eli would be the first of his draft class to get a ring etc etc. It was even stated officially later that Troy's interception should have been upheld, but that would have been a small comfort if we had lost the game. So I can sort of understand about stewing over past events, bad calls, playing the "what if" game, etc. People still debate the finer points of SBs played decades ago.

I can see how they would still be upset - they had TDs overturned and some bad luck and that was their first SB appearance and who knows when they'll get another chance? And to be honest, that really wasn't our finest appearance. That said, bad calls didn't make them miss all those FG opportunities, we had some bad calls too and you have to overcome. As we did, and all teams do.

At least it gives them something to talk about...

Just curious - are you guys yawning and coffee drinking at me? If my post doesn't belong here or is inappropiate or something, I'll be happy to delete it. I was just trying to offer an alternative view.

Hee. Thanks, LLT - I feel better now. I'm pretty new here and a relatively uninformed fan and still feeling my way around here. Yes, I can certainly understand yawning at the Seahawks! Thank you for easing my mind - I was worried I was coming across as a bad fan or something.
