That offensive Interference was crap

So was the illegal block WHILE TACKLING THE GUY

Oh what about the holding call that didn't exist?

Or how about the touchdown where he didn't break the goal line

Don't you know they print the merchandise before the game then call the game for whichever team they decided to support that year.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

I agree. I was kind of neutral coming into the game as I wouldn't mind seeing Bettis or Alexander either one winning a ring... but some of the calls in this game were absolutely pathetic. Of course, I guess that was the trend all post-season.

We'll just say the Detroit Zebras won the Bowl this year...

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

The only bad calls people should be complaining about are the ones coming from the seatle sidelines. They owned the pass in the first quarter...then did ****. Pittsburg couldn't cover the deep ball to save their life...and how about the walking in circles trying to decide what play to run at the end of the first half?

I too was pretty neutral, but I was kind of leaning towards seattle out of spite. But, the play calling really did suck the big one after the first quarter.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

i was nuetral in this game, and definitely thought that the ball crossed the line on that TD. all it has to do is a tip of the ball cross the very front of the white line, and it appeared that it happened to me.

I disagree but even with that call being right it was still horrible calling.

That offensive pass interference was HORRIBLE

That replay wasn't clear, it got blurry right when you needed to see it clearly.

The penalty on Seattle after that INT when he tackled the DB was the worst call I think I've ever seen.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

yeah, and you need indisputable evidence. the view was horrible im suprised anyone can say it was a bad call/good call from that camera shot. like whitestang said it was blurry just when you needed to see it and it could have went either way. times like that you just have to rely on the referee's judgement when he was standing 5 yards away.

The "low block" was a bad call

There was holding on that play, the offensive lineman had his hands outside of the frame of his body but since that moron Madden didn't see it people are trumpeting what he said.

It looked to me like about an inch of the ball crossed the plane and then came back as he went down and there definitely wasn't indisputable evidence to overturn the call on the field.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

as for the offensive pass interference it wouldnt have been a call if he didnt put his entire hand on the guy and the safety (i think) did a bit of (good) acting. if it was his forearm or any other part of his arm it wouldnt have been called but it was his entire flat hand. you have to call penalties like that.. you arent allowed to push off.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

Even with the bad calls... the seahawks DIDNT stop the big plays when they happened, they still let parker make a 75yd TD run, they still couldnt make a defense stand when the time came. Steelers STILL won.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

Everyone knows I was neutral with my waffling on who would win. I only rooted for Seattle because I used to live there, so after the Broncos were out of the picture I didn't really care who won.

The Interference Call:
I suppose some arguement can be made that it was interference, but don't get me started on OFFENSIVE pass interference in the first place. Isn't receiving all about "Intended Receivers"? I seriously doubt the quarterback is ever intending to throw the ball to the defender, so I have always thought that the receiver should be able to do anything (within reason and existing rules) to keep the defender from the ball. While he did have ONE hand on him, they do that on EVERY SINGLE play. Who are the referees to randomly call this one when there is a score in the balance? If they called it everytime, that would be better than just whenever they feel like it.

The Touchdown Call:

In my opinion, no part of the ball ever crossed/touched the white line. Roethlisberger fell straight down, and when he landed the ball was underneath him surrounded by GREEN. If you looked at the timing of the side judge's call, he did not throw his hands up until everyone was done moving and Roethlisberger had time to do the "Pull the ball out from underneath me and stick it over the line routine". And on the review, the upstairs refs said the ball didn't cross and it needed to be overtruned, but the field ref wouldn't do it. However, it's still very possible that they would have gotten the TD later anyway, BUT we don't know do we?

The Holding Call:

Firstly, holding occurrs on EVERY play, and is another one of those calls that, if enforced, should be on EVERY SINGLE PLAY.
Secondly, that was not a hold in my opinion, that just looked like good use of the body to block an opponent.
Thirdly, whatever, go ahead and call it holding, BUT HOW ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE THAT A TEN YARD HOLDING CALL!!!!!11!one!! And you can't tell me that they would not have gotten a TD out of that on the 2 yard line with Alexander and Hasselback who is willing to scramble for yardage.

The Clip Call:

I don't care who you routed for, you have to admit that was nothing more than a msitake on the referees part and nothing else. It was not a block, it was a tackle. That ref needs to pull his *** out of his head and read the rule book.

Now if we don't take into account the possibilty of "Momentum Shifts" and a few other things, final score should have been:

Seahawks 17

Steelers 14

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

Quote:
Actions that constitute offensive pass interference include but are not limited to:

(a) Blocking downfield by an offensive player prior to the ball being touched.

(b) Initiating contact with a defender by shoving or pushing off thus creating a separation in an attempt to catch a pass.

(c) Driving through a defender who has established a position on the field.
that is illegal. end of discussion.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

Very well. I would hesitate to call that a shove, however, as I said before, why don't they call that on every play? I promise you that was not the only time that happened in the game on both sides.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

i agree that it happens a lot, but in the superbowl on a touchdown pass, everything that is illegal needs to be called. it was strict, but still the right call to make in my opinion. as for the clipping, it was probably a bad call.. and the holding.. well, thats a judgement call up to the professionals. the angles they have on the field, the closeness they have to the plays, the things they see and hear are much different than what cameras allow. sometimes you just got to have faith in them and if they make mistakes, its a part of the game and it happens on both ends.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

I agree on the interference call, they BOTH pushed off each other so there is no real team at fault. It could have been defensive if the pass was incomplete we don't know.

The ball crossed the tip of the goal line, end of story.

And I am so proud of Randle El, that throw to Ward was perfect.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

the game went in the stealers favor by the officials definitely , it was completely obvious. As for the TD where he made it to the goal line.The ball would have been placed on the goal line and they definitely would have scored on the next play anyways so i guess thats why they really gave it to them.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

The ball did not go straight down, Ben had the ball over the line when it was 2 feet off the ground and then he was pushed back by the time he landed.


The push off was clearly a push off, hand in the middle of the chest and the arm going from bent to extended as a whole lot of open space was created. And the intended receiver stuff means nothing, the defender has just as much right to the ball as the offensive player.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

So explain the illegal block? Apparently it's illegal to tackle the guy with the ball when you are on the other team.

Give me a break, the Seahawks got screwed over on the officiating. That offensive pass interference was bull****.

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

I wasn't saying that the defender doesn't have rights to the ball according to the rule book, I was saying, I hate that penalty, but it happens a lot, so why isn't it called EVERY time instead of just when it's convenient? They were both "handling" each other anyway.

Of all the weird calls this one was the worse. Once a player has the ball you can tackle him just about any way you want. The offensive pass interference is bogus since they were both pushing. But only one person was caught. The TD seemed to cross the line ever so slightly but that is enough.

MY TAKE!!! If you think you lost because of a couple of bad calls YOU EVIDENTLY DID NOT PLAY WELL ENOUGH TO WIN OUTRIGHT!!! They should have scored more points !!!!!!

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

Bad calls can carry momentum over to the other team very easily. Not saying they couldn't have won but when you keep getting screwed over with the officiating you cant help but be at a huge disadvantage

Re: Well the Officials need the super bowl

the steelers had no momentum the first half.. i will admit the seahawks were outplaying the steelers in the first half. but they came out the 2nd half and definitely outplayed the seahawks. i wouldnt blame the game on the penalties.
