We won the Colts game too... you must overcome bad calls by the officials. Human error is part of officiating in sports, and people have been complaining about it for decades. See, I relize that the refs the NFL has are in fact human and capable of making mistakes. Every team in every game has questionable calls go against them.

I once saw an umpire call a pitch that was a ball... a strike, and I once saw a line judge call a ball that was in... out. One time I was watching basketball and the ref called a clear charging call a blocking foul. One time I was watching a boxing match where the judge scored a 10-9 round for the wrong fighter. My point is... he shoulda knocked him out. You can't let the refs decide the game for you.

The Steelers played awful in that game and if your guys brought their A-game you would have won...

- Did the refs miss two field goals for the Seahawks?
- Did the refs drop five passes?
- Did the refs manage the clock poorly?
- Did the refs allow Willie Parker to bust a 75 yard run?
- Did the refs bite on an obvious trick play that went for a TD?
- Did the refs allow Ben to buy time and complete a pass that could have been intercepted?
- Did the refs throw an INT right to Ike in the red-zone?
- Did the refs punt it into the end-zone three time in the first quarter?

Get a grip, and let it go... your Seahawks didn't execute.

the only problem with full time refs is that the nfl would then be paying the same guys full salaries and for 5 days a week to make the same type of subjective judgement mistakes made on sunday.

how would a full time ref be able to judge if bens td run touched the line any better than a part timer???????

If so, why haven't we ever seen out cries from around the country about this before?

It is certainly not just Seattle complaining....it is sport writers from all around the country...and we all know they are not all Seahawks fans.

I really wish, as NFL fans, you folks would support a referee over haul in the NFL. And realize how lop sided the calls were in the SB....just like they were in your Colts game. You saw it then, do you still see it from this last Sunday, or has the win clouded your judgment?

Yes, nothing will take your newest Lombardi trophy from Pittsburgh. Your team played won that game?.it?s over with. But, just as the calls were going unfairly against your team with the Colts, the same thing happened to the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. Yes, your team did enough to over compensate the piss poor officiating in the Colts game, and we did not in the Super Bowl?but none of that matters.

All that matters is in future years, the only thing to determine the outcome of a game, is the two teams playing the game.
There has been cries about bad officiating all season. In this case, this is the Super Bowl, the biggest game of the year, and the only real game left to play for the season, so the attention of all people is centered around it, hence why it seems that more people are complaining about it.

Most of your players may not have complained much about it, but your head coach was glad to play that card. These people who bitch and moan about the officiating are the same individuals who told Pittsburgh and their fans to shut up after the Colts game when they opened their mouthes about the officiating. Imagine that. Now that the bad calls favored the team that won, they want to open up their yaps again. Good riddance.

These people can yap all they want as far as I am concerned. It just ruins the image of how the Seahawks are taking a loss.....

I really tire of talking about this topic so I will do it once more for some unbeknown reason ...

Yes the officiating in the NFL has been going downhill for the last few years now, yes we need full time officials who should be made to take refresher classes every off season to review the latest rules, and they should also be made to attend an X number of NFL team practices during training camp and the offseason to make sure everyone is on the same page.

The NFL officials have a very hard job to do, at the blink of eye they must make a call that is of the utmost importance. I dont envy them at all and dont want their jobs for anything really... but if the NFL is the biggest and best sports outfit in the world, then we need to take the initiative and bring on full time officials.

The cost of full time officials would be large, there is no doubt, and would have to be part of the new barganing agreement in some way Im sure...but thats why they are paid the big bucks up in New York offices of the NFL..to figure this out before it gets any worse.

Im not going to comment any more on the game, ive done that enough these last few days and anybody that has read my posts knows how I feel about the game itself.

i hate these refs but great teams play through it, so having the same refs don't bother me much cause the steelers know how to win with everything going against them
