For the record, I wouldn't exactly call the 'ass kissing from the media' a 'bonus'.

Do you really think this was the first Super Bowl with controversy? Ever heard of the tuck rule? People are still bitching about that (which was indeed the correct call. A stupid rule? Maybe. The right call? You betchya). Every fan of losing teams finds something to bitch about. They can't blame their own team - so they have to find something else (and usually, it's the refs). Case in point:

First of all... I am Not a Raider fan, but they got screwed and tattooed in that game.. Period!!
I think that all the nay sayers about the Steelers win in Super Bowl XL are just still gettin' on my nerves. I agree that the TD that they gave Big Ben was very questionable but the holding call that nulified a Seattle TD that could happen on any play. Most every announcer says that there could be holding called on Every Play. So, Nay Sayers... Go Home and Shut Up.

Yeah, but in both cases, with the tuck rule and with Super Bowl officials, it's not so much the losing team as it is everyone but the winning team.

Well Tony, we all devote our mental resources to different things - your speciality happens to be kindergarten names for the penis.

Just because I am aware of these different names does not mean I have to include them in my posts at every opportunity like some over excitable 6 year old who has just discovered them.

Whatever works for you though.


Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery they say, so I appreciate your attempt to recreate my sponsorship quip - though you probably actually might want to try injecting a little humor next time.

As BBC says - it may well be a bad rule, maybe even an unfair rule, but it was a rule none the less and it was correctly applied.

Woodson should have been penalised for an arm slap to Brady's helmet.

That has to be one of the most demented websites I have ever seen.

All the video footage breakdowns fail to show anything that corresponds to the comments attributed to it.

I seen this a few years back, I was as amazed then as I am now.

And it still doesn't make either of the two Super Bowl titles any less deserved

Of course it's demented, it shows what was wrong with your first Super Bowl win. You are the biggest homer there ever was. I'll be the first Steelers fan to admit that the ref's calls in the Super Bowl hosed the Seahawks, simply by robbing them of momentum, not that they were the wrong call (except the hasselback block, that was terrible).

The Pat's won't amount to squat this year. They got off easy last year in one of the worst divisions in the league, this year the Dolphins are going to look good. And I can't wait to see you back-pedal all season long.

You also managed to quote the wrong person - twice.

So the Seahawks got 'hosed' by the refs because the correct calls robbed them of momentum?

Im getting some seriously mixed messages here.

Someone getting 'hosed' and 'robbed' normally have been wronged in someway - yet you are saying that they were given a raw deal because the refs called it correctly?

Those are some brave predictions you have there - Miami to 'look good' - im gonna go put me some money on that one.

And the Pats wont amount to squat?

Are you suggesting 8-8 or worse?
