Really not link worthy. You could add it to the super bowl thread if you like.

Shame Seattle had to play against the refs and Pittsburgh. Wonder if the NFL had a plan before the game even started and no I'm not a Seattle fan just watched the game.

i might be bias because i am a cincinnati fan, but this game was a joke from that point of view. pittsburg just seemed to get away with everything and the seahawks just got screwed

I voted for head ref Bill Leavy to be Super Bowl XL MVP.

THIS WAS BY FAR, THE MOST POORLY OFFICIATED GAME I'VE EVER SEEN. MANY TIMES, BAD CALLS WILL TAKE/GIVE YARDS INCORRECTLY, AND YET NOT CHANGE THE GAME. TODAY, THE REFS TOOK POINTS OFF THE SCOREBOARD AND AT THE SAME TIME, TOOK ANY MOMENTUM THE SEAHAWKS HAD BUILT UP. IT WAS PATHETIC! I CANT BELIEVE THE COMMISSIONER DIDNT INTERVENE.

Pass Interference at the beginnning of the game? Joke!!!! Ben's touchdown-JOKE!!!! He wasn't in and it was obvious. Reminds of the Jets game the Seahawks lost and didn't make the playoffs a few years ago. Some of the holds that the refs called kept were terrible too. The NFL had one agenda-Jerome Bettis day in Detroit. It was obvious by the advertising as well. A 6th seed getting as much publicity makes me sick. Was the NFL worried they couldn't sell Seahawks Superbowl Champion merchandise? Unbelievable!!! The game was the worse called game I've seen in along time.

Cry me a river. It's really to bad that there are so many GROWN BABIES out there. So, this is my take on all the crying. WE as receivers can now extend our arm into the chest of a DB (not to make a play for the ball) to cause separation. OK. WE as O- linemen can wrap our arm around a defensive playerís neck or grab him by the leg/foot and itís no longer holding. OK. WE (anyone with the football trying to score) must have the ball completely cross the goal line (not just break the plane) before itís a touchdown. OK. WE as receivers can catch the ball, take two steps, drop the ball, and not have it called a fumble. OK. During an interception return WE (the team doing the returning) can push anyone in the back we choose and itís not Illegal block in the back. OK. The Seahawks received an invite to a formal (SBXL) they had no clothes for. They showed up underdressed and because they were well liked, they were allowed in. But at the end of the day everyone got tired of looking at them and they were asked to leave. Seahawk fans should be happy the score was what it was. Should have been STEELERS 45 - Seahawks 10
