I think the NFL stood to make way more money if Pitt won then seattle because pittsburgh has a great story line, tradition, the whole bus thing, rothlesberger, if seattle won,, ya they'd sell a few shirts and that's it, but if pitt won it would be a great story and the nfl would make so much money from sales, please post your opinions.

I thought it was pretty obvious.......

They found a local that had Pitt -4.5, and buried a teaser with pitt +2.5 and seattle +11.5.

Yzerman#19

as a forum moderator you shouldn't be allowed to constantly harp on someone, it is actually your job to keep this sort of thing from happening, but either way, i'd still bust you in the mouth.

They called them like they seen them. What is so far fetched & difficult to understand about that !

Guy with experience & integrity calling them like they see them. wow, could it be ?

That would my guess (I'll say the same about the Indy/Pgh officials also)





I doubt if "you" (I mean a group of people who know who they are), could have done a better job watching the game in slow motion.

Down here when a ref makes a bad call that was obviously the wrong one he is suspended and then made to ref a lower division.
Does that sort of thing happen in the NFL?

Nope, Never, they are protected like you would never believe and whats even worse, you get fined huge amounts for criticzing an obvious bad call!

Well no wonder it is open to conjecture like this then. What a hideous system to have in place especially when so much money is involved in the sport on the field and in the gambling world. Mmmm and I bet on it luckily I had Pittsburgh this time around.

Seriously though that sucks if you get fined for critisicing a bad call that is obvious to all and sundry.

I see it in college hoops, the bigger the game the worse the refs are. There is no NFL refs under 40 yrs of age and very few under 50 years of age. Guys like Bill Vinovich become crew chiefs not on merit but becasue his daddy hired him. He is also a Big West basketball ref and very bad at that.

The refs don't have any balls whatsover. These bad calls almost ALWAYS go against the visiting team.(It was a home game for Pitt with their fans there.)

refs had money on pitt plain and simple cant be more blatantly bad especially that push-off in end zone WOW that took sea td away. Is it so hard for a ref to get together, take relatives or friends and bet huge sums of a team and give everyone a %? Why is this so hard for people to accept?

Why is it so hard for you to except the fact that The pi call was correct? Not saying there were not bad calls against sea but that was not one of them Anytime a wr extends his arm and pushes against a defender technicaly that is interference. It just isn't called all the time. As far as refs beting on games i will not argue against that as i agree with you. Anway there were a couple very bad calls that went against sea so i don't know why people keep complaining about 1 that was the correct call if you go by the letter of the law.
