Well, San Fram may have pulled the plug, but somebody please explain two non calls by the officials, The first being the no call hold on Miller on Jone's KO return for a TD,

The second non call on San Frans last offensive play where Crabtree was victum of holding at the LOS,, illegally contacted in the end zone , interfered with when the ball was in the air, and finally ,almost tackled. The Ref missed three calls in one play right in front of him.

that second one is to me a serious problem. I don't want to try and take anything away from what the Ravens did, and I don't mind in big games letting the players play.

However, when the final relevant play is so strongly affected by penalties (on both sides even), it has to be questioned whether the refs are taking the game OUT of the players hands by not throwing a flag. Would the two penalties have offset producing another 4th and goal?

Any of the three penalties that could have been called would have resulted in a 1st and goal to go situation. Holding and Ilegal Contact would have been half the distance to the goal line, ist and ten. PI would have resulted in 1st and goal at the one.

one argument you're going to get then is if the refs call PI or give 9ers another 1st and goal then they're giving the 9ers the game.

Some say that Crabtree pushed off committing his own penalty. At the time I thought he only pushed off because he was being grabbed by the defender.

I just think in this situation, by sticking their heads in the sand, the refs took the game out of the hands of the players by not giving them a cleanly called ending. I don't want to take anything away from the Ravens, they won the game, and deserved it in my opinion.

if it were my choice, let the players play - I think a lot of us Steelers fans could appreciate that line of thinking - I would not like to see a controversial call decide a SB.

I'm shocked more people aren't talking about the playcalling - 4 downs that close and they couldn't find a way in. Ravens def deserved the trophy after a huge stand. 49ers won the entire second half and the Ravens still managed to make the 1 critical stop they had to.

NFL reports that the power outage was due to an abnormality detected in grid... We have just learned that the abnormality was antler growth by a player on the Ravens.....jus saying

I think in the years following we will find out that Jim Harbaugh sent one of his assistant coaches with some garden shears to cut the hard line of wiring into the stadium.

Blackout-gate will be his legacy, just like Spygate with Belichek.

It's hard to sell cars for 30,000 each. Give them a few more days, they'll have the money.
