    While you are correct that I should deal with it and get over it, no way you will ever convince me they earned it. That super bowl was a screw job. Come on now, you can admit it. You'll feel better and still have that ring on your thumb after you do!

    I don't think it was a screw job. Look at the bright side, the Seahawks got a higher pick in the draft because of it.

    Okay okay okay already I concede to your wisdom Doctor Pepper. That 2nd quarter Willie Parker 75 yard kick return for the TD was just as illegal as it goes. Jerramy Stevens posting a TD off the 16 yarder from Matt Hasselbeck in the 3rd? What were them ref's thinking? Hines Ward taking that 43 yard pass in for the TD in the 4th? Baaad call on the ref's to allow such a thing ... no way should I consider that game a win.

    Stevens at the 1 yard line brought back on a phantom hold and Jacksons TD was a bad call right? Wrong. When an offensive player is behind a defender and impedes his progress ... it's holding. Seattle got caught.

    What about that Hasselbeck fumble overruled by the replay official as down by contact? No part of his body was in contact with the ground when he was touched ... that's a fumble but the ball was given back to Seattle.

    It went both ways in the shit ref call department ... the officials were bad on both sides.

    LOL but Pepper I gotta say that with 4 rings on 4 fingers your right. That 5th ring coulda gone on my thumb just because I'm outta room ... but I think you can see it better if I show it to ya from the index finger of the other hand (mentally insert gif image here ).

    Listen, you are correct about the Steelers making the big plays but saying the calls "went both ways" is laugable. It really is.

    That holding call was one of the worst calls I've seen only to be followed by a BS tackling below the waist.

    It was a poorly officiated game and 9 out of 10 of the poor calls went against Seattle.

    It was also a poorly played game, particularly by the safeties, but that is for another day.

    If you thought that was holding on Locklear, you simply are not being objective. I assume you are just busting my chops b/c otherwise you make some good points.

    Anyway, it put the Steelers at near mid-field, they run the trick play, Bouleware falls down, again..and the rest is history.

    Seattle gave up too many big plays for me to say they would have or should have won. However, they deserved better officiating than the NFL gave them.

    As for the hold that bonecrusher says was a good call. It was this call that caused the NFL to change the way officials call holding. The competition comittee guy said that they wanted officials to actually see holding before throwing the flag. Wow, interesting concept.

    If I sound like a bitter, whiny cry-baby, I am.

    Life really is a matter of perspective. From the perspective of those officiating at the time ... the Hawks were in violation. Was the call challenged?
