After going elsewhere online, even ESPN, and talking to my brother from work at an office of football fans, it seems to be unanimous that the officiating sucked and/or was rigged. Seems Dave C is the only one on the other side I've seen. As one guy put it, put an asterix next to this 'championship.' The big game deserves better. Let the guys play it out.

The officiating sucked, but let's just remember that the Seahawks shot themselves in the foot way too many times to win that game...

this guy would like to speak to some of you... he thinks you're on to something.




but, alas, now that i know that the football fans at your brother's office think it was rigged, perhaps i'll change my line of thought.

I really doubt it was rigged, but I have no doubt it was the poorest officiated Superbowl I've ever watched, and it capped the poorest officiated postseason I've ever watched.

And certain aspects of this postseason were definitely borderline Oliver Stone material, most glaringly the overturn of the Polamalu pick in Indy followed closely by the 1 man Patriot wrecking crew of a back judge in Denver.

I think overall the officiating this postseason was an absolute embarassment to the premier professional sports league in the U.S. and it needs to be dealt with before next September.

well I finally got up and after reading have nothing new to contribute...anthem sucked, officiating sucked, Big Ben sucked, the Stones sucked,the game sucked.

I did really like the streaker Bud ad however. My head hurts-I am going back to bed.

Well, they're not like me, they're very intelligent highly educated yuppies, network administrators making close to six figures. And it wasn't they who said it was rigged, it was somebody else I talked to today on another board. I really can't believe you are so hateful to everything I say, even when we don't disagree

I'm not saying that the officiating was good, or even remotely close to it. It was awful, there were way too many flags for a Super Bowl.

The OPI call...if I were not the field I wouldn't have called it. But just because I don't think it shouldn't have been called doesn't mean that it COULDN'T have been called. It doesn't mean that it didn't exist. It was a judgment call that could have gone either way, the ref made the call that he thought it was OPI, so it was. Done. That's why we have human referees and not robots out there making calls - because everything is based on judgement.

The Hasselbeck chop block was terrible.

The hold on 1st&G on the 1 was terrible.

The Roethlisburger touchdown was a touchdown.

But, despite all that, the Seahawks still fucked up miserably on both sides of the ball, and THAT is what cost them the game. Not the officials. Anybody who says the officials won/lost the game for either team is full of shit. You don't play like that and expect to win no matter what the officiating is like.

I think dropped passes, missed field goals, a key turnover in the red zone, great ground defense shutting down Shaun Alexander and poor clock management at the end of the first half played a greater role in Seattle's loss than the officiating.

Great teams overcome poor officiating, ask Canada's Women Hockey Team from the 2002 Olympics. Professional athletes have 60 minutes to win a game of football, 2 calls don't determine the game, if they couldn't overcome the setbacks, they didn't want it bad enough. The game was crap regardless who won. An embarrassment for the biggest North American Pro League.

Cause Brady and Seymour have opted out, so it'll be boring.
