Default Post Super Bowl XL

After you guys took apart Seattle in that game, was your team disrespected or called "lucky", things like that or did people give you credit?

The treatment the Steelers got was DEFINITELY disrespectful... We were "lucky" and "the refs handed us that game..." were all the talk in the sports rags... Of course, we in Steelersfeverland didn't believe that for one second. Of course, the team didn't help us much by having a horrible "hangover year" after the Superbowl...

I have seen the Giants' being called "lucky" and getting disrespected as well...

I still say Ben reached the goal line while he was still in the air. Nothing to do with his moving the ball after he landed. That seems to be one of the big sticking points for Seattle and it's invalid.
And Seattle's push off in the end zone was a push off. Technical as it may be, it was still illegal.

Welcome Giants Fan.

After XL we had to hear a lot of "refs stole the game for the Steelers" crap. Then we just point out that our defense basically smashed the Seattle Offense in the face all game long and kept the MVP from getting 100 yards or finding the endzone and pointed out that if Ben didn't have the worse game of his life, the game wouldn't have been as close as 11 points. 21-10. Final score. We flat out won that game. Seahawk fans still are bitter but we punched them in the face last year 21-0 and shut them the ef up once and for all.

Giants didn't get lucky against the Pats. Brady played bad most of the game, he' hadn't had a great game against the Chargers the previous game either and with the Giants D line getting in his face all game, it was a well coached and well played game by the G-men from the first to last snap of that game. They outplayed the Pats and deserved the win. There was one lucky catch, sure, but the 3rd and 11 play that kept the drive alive on the right hash mark, (I cant remember who caught the ball but he made a heck of an effort to get to the sticks) really showed me the Giants werent going down without fighting til the end. They earned their 3rd Trophy.

The only call in the game the head of officiating indicated was a mistake was the 15 yard penalty on hasselback when he went to tackle Ike after the 4th quarter int. However when you watch the play, he dives at the legs of the d-lineman but misses and actually tackles Ike in error. The flag was thrown because the ref thought he cut down the blocker, when really he made the tackle. However that didn't decide the game. Our running game and defense won that game. Bottom Line. Had Ben not had a brain crap and underthrown Wilson, we'd have been up 21-3 in that game late.

Only by the whiners and the sore losers and other people whose opinions are worthless.

We won our game fair and square, as did the Giants...

And you had the fortune to

1) Watch your team in the most exciting Super Bowl ever; as much as I savored our win, the game itself was a stone drag, and

2) Bring sheer joy to the 99.9% of the fans who are Patriots haters. It is great to see the underdogs win... it is absolute pleasure to see the underdogs take down a cawky and arrogant favorite, in such a convincing manner.

You earned it, and you now get to savor it. Rub their faces in their 18-1 diaper, and tell them it's not nice to poop themselves in the clutch!

Only if you site every sour grapes fan and media person saying "the officials handed us the game".

Now I see NFL network has our SuperBowl as #8 or #9 out of 10 as "the most controversial calls".

What a load of SH!T

Congratulations! Eli had an especially great game.
I usually say my 2nd favorite is whoever plays Dallas. Now I'll add to that my 3rd favorite - whoever plays NE.

I find it more satisfying to hear them cry about being ripped off! Its such a childish way to explain away a loss. Its just an indicator of the types of fans soe teams have.
