Default The officiating

No, I'm not complaining about the poor officiating.

Actually, I was just wondering if I was the only one who was somewhat impressed with the officiating tonight. I thought the crew did a very good job, my only beef being the strange call just before overtime, and the mistakingly substituting defense for offense. Nearly gave me a heart attack!

Hard fought game, that well called by the refs IMO.

yeah.. you dont want to talk about calls after the game.. from what i saw, there were no close calls that favored one team or the other. there were a decent number of penalties, but its gotta be tough reffing a steelers-ravens game on mnf.

I'm not a Seahawk fan. I have no issues with the officiating.

the refs wouldnt know the difference between a yellow flag and the terrible towel being shoved up their ass.

with that being said, they didnt cost us the game.

Has anyone not given these refs a class in how to flip a freaking coin correctly? It always makes me nervous when a ref with a coin in overtime gets anywhere near the Steelers.

This could have been another coingate it's no wonder the Ravens were screaming we'll receive, we'll receive. If you Tivo'd the game go back and watch the coin toss, the look on Ward and Farriors face is priceless they can't believe what is happening. I'll bet Ward thought he was having a flash backs to Thanksgiving Day in Detroit in a OT game.

I noticed that coin flip. What the heck is the matter with that referee. It is almost like he flipped it that way on purpose and it must have landed straight on the ground without turning over the way those Ravens pukes acted. Glad we beat their butts on OT. Way to go Reed.

That late hit was total BS!!!!!!!!




To be fair, Hines Ward hit him first. But, as they say, its never the first guy. Its always the second guy.
