That led to plenty of public scrutiny of the officiating, but Aiello said Monday the league is satisfied with the performance of its officials during the postseason.

"It was a very well-officiated playoffs, including the Super Bowl," he said.
I'm not sure even Steelers fans can agree with this statement...

No Kidding GoStillers. We Got Ripped Off A Few Times. All of the 12 Teams in it did at least once.

However, THIS is just as laughable:

Quote:
A first-quarter touchdown pass from quarterback Matt Hasselbeck to wide receiver Darrell Jackson was nullified by an offensive pass-interference call on Jackson. Jackson used his right arm to lightly shove Steelers safety Chris Hope, and back judge Bob Waggoner threw a flag as Hope began to protest.

"I didn't even touch him," Jackson said. "I guess that's how it is when you are on the road, and I guess that's how it is when you are going against the world."
"I DIDN'T EVEN TOUCH HIM?" That shoots down any credibility he had on the play. Yeah, it was a foul. Yeah, it was ticky-tacky. But to say he DIDN'T EVEN TOUCH him? C'mon.

From what I could see, it appeared that Hope had Jackson locked up and Jackson pushed his arms out to free himself and catch the ball. Just my honest opinion on that one. Would like to see it again to make sure that was what I saw. You're right though, Jackson definitely touched him, but hard to call it a push when Hope didn't go backwards when he broke free.

Maybe he meant he didn't "touch him" in the biblical sense? After all his hand was above the waist.

It doesn't need to be a push to be a penalty. I reviewed it. It was a stiff arm. The timing of the contact merely only left Hope in a standing position and that is what is making the call most controversial.

But the effect of the contact was TWO-FOLD. No matter how little, it clearly put Hope at an unfair disadvantage by essentially 'freezing him in his tracks' at the precise moment he was changing direction to make a play...and second, the stiff arm by Jackson provided additional leverage which added acceleration to his change of direction thus creating a bigger separation.

Compare the latter to a swimmer starting a lap in the middle of the pool vs. starting a lap by using their legs to push off the pool wall.

Seattle fans should be directing their anger at Jackson. From the replay he had the edge already without breaking the rules. Receivers already have every conceivable edge. It's not only about time that they call this but the NFL at the beginning of the season expressly instructed the officials to start calling it.
