You guys know how to get people to shut the hell up about this?

First,we have to stop responding.They want us to respond and get upset.

Second,the Steelers have to come out and kick some major ass,and totally dominate SB XLI.Ben will have to have a good game,Willie will have to show he can get it done without Bettis' help,and the defense will have to kick some real ass.

Really, you got the win, be happy with that - by bringing it up over and over just makes you look guilty.

Time to move on - the Steelers have a Championship to defend.

Mark this on the calendar, I agree with LITP. We won, who cares what they think. I still love going to Seahawks cap with my Porter jersey on. I think Hasselbeck got a little scared when he saw me. lol

Anways, LITP makes a valid point, if we drop it, our boys will show everyone again this year.

C'mon guys, who cares? The Steelers have the Lombardi for Superbowl XL... just the Steelers, no one else. There is only one reason the Steelers have that Lombardi... they won the Superbowl!

No amount of whining, crying, or complaining by any fans of any other team is going to change it... just enjoy it. knowledgeable fans from all teams know that the Steelers earned the Championship... don't sweat it.

If it were just Tom, Dick & Harry (fans from other NFL teams) saying this it would definitely be a nonissue, however, when you have Michaels & Madden making constant negative remarks regarding the Steeler's SuperBowl win in front of millions of people, you have a real problem.

In the Sunday night game between Seattle and Indy..they are picking up where they left off in the Super Bowl. They mentioned that the league never fined Mike Holmgren for his comments about having to beat the refs and the Steelers too in the SB. So they basically implied that the Seahawks did get jobbed and lost the SB on bad calls.
Later in the game.. after Seattle got a call in their favor in the end zone Michaels said " OH sure. NOW they get the calls!" Ok its just entertainment but we could be seeing the start of a season long "Seattle lost the SB on bad calls, not on their inept play" refrain.
Collinsworth did much the same thing last week when he called out Bettis on the Cincy game saying the Steelers were lucky to win that game.

When a guy in a bar after one too many says it ..its one thing..but these guys reach a huge audience and I hope someone will call them on it on air because I am getting sick of the myth. It tarnishes the Steelers win amongst the general public.

What to do? Nothing I guess...its a little frustrating but I have disliked Madden and Michaels (although I do respect what they have done in years past) for some time as individuals and now that they are together its a little worse...LOL! Still a lot of people will mouth whatever they say the next day at work and that concerns me.

To shut them up we could REPeat, but we should not have to shut them up to begin with. They are supposed professionals who evidently dislike the Steelers so much they cannot even see what all they have accomplished. A 6 seed winning the superbown and knocking off some damn good treams on the way to their win. We get no respect and I for one am getting real sick of it. They have put in more hours talking about that dip TO then talking about real athletic talent.

Sorry this is just the way I feel on this topic.

I agree whole-heartedly, Lyn. But take solace in this..Madden's an idiot. I never listen to anything that guy says. The most entertaining thing that comes outta his pie-hole is usually started with a "BOOM".

The way to silence the critics is to repeat. The Patriots had the same problem after their 1st Super Bowl victory, remember the "fumble" call?

i agree we need to "do it again " but at the same time I seriously doubt we will ever have the repect we deserve and since there is nothing anyone can seemingly do about it, we need to ignore the jerks on tv who are "reminding the Seahawak fans" that they got screwed and the refs had "terrible towels in their pockets" and that they should have won the superbowl.

1. The Refs didn't give up the longest run in SB history...Seattle's
defense did.

2. The Refs didn't bite on a 43 yd trick play, Randle to Ward for a
TD...Seattle's defense did.

3. The Refs didn't allow Ben to scramble around on a 3rd and 28 and
complete a long pass to the 2 yd. line...Seattle's defense did.

4. The Refs didn't miss two field goals, that was Seattle.

5. The Refs didn't fail to step out of bounds late in the 1st half to
stop the clock in Pitt territory in a crunch time
situation...Seattle's offense did.

6. The Refs didn't let the 1st half clock tick down from 48 seconds
all the way down to 13 seconds before finally running their next play
at Pitt's 36 yd line...Seattle's offense did.

7. And on this play, 3rd down, 53 yds away from a FG, it wasn't the
Refs who tried and failed to go deep for a TD rather than a safer 5
yrd play and timeout setting up a much easier FG attempt....that,
again, would be Seattle's offense.

8. The Refs didn't get confused by Pitt's zone defense and throw an
INT...that would be Seattle's QB.

9. The Refs didn't let a little physical contact intimidate them from
catching 4 very catchable passes...that would be the Seattle TE
Jeremy Stevens.

10. With approx. 20 seconds left in the game, knowing they need a TD
and FG, in no particular order, and in easy FG range on 4th down, it
wasn't the Refs who ignored the FG and elected to throw up a prayer
trying for a TD...that AGAIN would be Seattle.

11. The Refs didn't constantly punt deep into the end zone,
repeatedly giving Pitt the ball at the 20 yd line...that of course
was Seattle.Opportunities to pin the Steelers really deep should have
been capitalized.

12. It wasn't the Refs who received a Christmas gift wrapped easy INT
lobbed in perfect position to return deep into Pitt territory...the
lucky beneficiary of that break would be Seattle.

13. It wasn't the Refs who got a break when a Steeler DB dropped an
easy int early in the game...that too would be a break for Seattle.

14. It wasn't the Refs who caught a break when a Steeler WR dropped a
very catchable TD pass...that break again would go to Seattle.

15. It wasn't the scapegoat Refs that received a break when a WR
caught the ball, turned, stepped, was hit hard enough to cause a
fumble, and then ruled INCOMPLETE...that would be of course, another
chance for Seattle.
(this was an interesting call considering that after Troy's famous
overruled Int, the NFL stated that it WAS a catch. If so, than this
definitely WAS a catch)

16. The Refs weren't the ones who caught a break when at the
conclusion of a 2nd qtr play, as a Pitt DE was walking away, the
Seattle Center blindsided the defenseless player, leveling him to the
ground. This mysteriously unseen crime was again another break for
Seattle.

17. It wasn't the Refs who got a break when Pitt QB Big Ben was
blocked in the back as he pursued the DB who he'd tossed an int
to...that again would go to Seattle.

18. It wasn't the Refs who stopped Seattle RB Alexander in a few key
situations.... That would be the Pittsburgh Steelers.

19. It wasn't the Refs who converted many of their 3rd downs yet
stopped their opponent on 3rd downs.The Seahawks had one penalty on
third down.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Remind me to hire Lyn as my attorney, the next time I get arrested.

Either that, or you report someone in.
