I've heard the same about you.

They keep showing that big hunking Caddy Escalade. I have a friend who has Hummer and Caddy dealerships. When the H-2 came out he would not give me a deal on one because they always got full sticker price. Now he has lots and lots of them. Piles of them and seems very willing to make me a good deal. I'm not interested anymore.

The Hawks actually did outplay them, IMHO. They just didn't make the plays when they had to. They didn't make them when they needed to score, which is why they lost. Seen it before.

Well, the plays they needed to make the refs took away, like the TD for the non-existant pushing foul...7 pts, and the ball in the 2 yd line with the Alexander and his ability to get into the end zone...almost certainly another 7 pts. And more debatable, but I believe also a wrong call was the Roethlisberger TD where he pushed the ball over the line after he was down...would have had to settle for a FG...4 pts.

They lost fair and square in the score.

I'd say they lost by the score...thanks to the refs.

Sorry, but with the several questionable refereee calls, there will always be an asterick next to this Steeler Super Bowl "victory".

Good post. I'll admit I was rooting for the Seahawks, but my favorite team didn't even make the playoffs so it isn't like I'm a seahawks fan. The fact is that the Seahawks really were robbed. I am not saying the would have definetly won with fair officiating, but they probably would have. Their should be some type of investigation into corruption in professional and college sports because it is ruining the integrity of the games.

Seattle fans remind of the Buffalo fans after the Stars won the Cup.

Hull's goal was illegal too. But his name is still on the trophy.

Jerammy Stevens gets mugged - no call. DJ sticks out an arm, no impact on the play, and a TD is taken off the board. Then, Stevens finally catches a pass on the one, and they call a phantom hold. The refs knew who was supposed to win, and they made it happen.

He PUSHED OFF right in front of the Ref. Had he not done so that ball might have been picked. Jeeze, why have rules?

"Phantom hold" my Aunt Sadie! THere are holds on dang near every play. The number of obvious holds by Seattle in the 4th quarter NOT CALLED clearlty showed the refs were showing favoritism TOWARDS the shehawks

And how about the OBVIOUS clip on Big Ben when that pick was being run back?

Calls went both ways. The game went one way. Towards the best team.

Or are you going to blame Alexander's complete dissapreance on the refs too?

I agree Seattle outplayed them.....however...Pittsburgh as a six seed, crushed a one seed that threatened the dolphins unbeaten mark, steamrolled a solid two seed and started it off by knocking off the three seed and their QB. Thats one hell of a run & you can't expect them to live up to the three playoff games. Some games wind up like this.

Seattle should've won...the push off hurt, but not as much as the holding call that took the ball from the 2. Had they scored on that possession, I think they would've won & won handily.

Steelers 3 touchdowns. Seahawks, 2 touchdowns.

It's momentum. The dynamics change on a bad call. The wrong team has the ball on the wrong part of the field. BTW the most heinous bad call was call the Hasslebeck for an ILLEGAL BLOCK, when he was on defense. Enjoy your victory, it's not a win.

That game was an embarrasment. I did not care who one, but for godsake the refs ruined what could have been a great game.

The NFL should be embarrassed by this one.

Ugh... The game was bad, the commercials weren't funny... No wonder I wasn't into this Superbowl.

Exactly. TV coverage of this Super Bowl has got to be the worst ever. No Janet Jackson incidents this year either. Next year if the Stillers are playing I'll pay my few thousand bucks and get a ticket to the game rather than endure such pablum.

You forget the 1st and goal from the 2 yard line that the refs stole from the Hawks on the BS holding call.

The pittsburgh mulletheads only have it on one side because the fan's can't process that much info.

They have it on one side because of tradition...something that the Seahawks don't know about, considering they only won one playoff game prior to this year.

Why are you letting Liberals ruin the great game of football?

All the drama is made up crap from the execs at ABC.

Steelers could have won. Seattle could have won. If they let them play. But, it appears that they didn't and the PC talking heads acted like it's okay for the game to be discredited if the right team won.

Congrats to the Steelers. It's not their fault that the bosses don't care about the sport. I would have loved to see them win without the crap.

Well, I'm from Seattle, and wanted them to win. But the push off offensive interference call in the end zone was trash. The holding called that negated a pass to the one yard line was trash, even Madden said so three times. There was a punt return to the 49 that got called back that was bunk.

I wouldn't mind if Seattle truly got outplayed, but they got outreffed!

Sill the Dallas Cowboys rule and they will always remain AMERICA TEAM :)

Interesting story I learned just this wkend from Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News: The Pittsburgh Steelers were offered the moniker, "America's Team" by the NFL in the 70's but they refused it. Didn't want anything to do with it. They then offered it to Dallas, which happily accepted. The rest is history. I think Pitt should have accepted it because they have been the football darlings of the media for decades now.

ME TO.... Pack the stadium full of steelers fans so it's more like a home game to them, and have the Zebras throw a flag avery time Seattle is threatening, and you have the and you have every right to complain about this game if your a Seahawks fan. Seattle has nothing to be ashamed of.
