The only way they can lose is if Neil O'Donnell comes back to play :-P

In all seriousness, I'd really like for everyone complaining about the last fumble to go back and look at it through unbiased eyes. When did Kurt lose the ball? He lost control of the ball BEFORE his arm started moving forward. Just because his hand pushed the ball forward, that's not the tuck rule. The tuck rule accounts for the QB having control of the ball when his hand starts moving forward. With Kurt, it was close...VERY close. Sure I could DVR some highlights and super slo mo it, but I think it will be too close. To me it looks like he lost control of it before his arm started moving forward. Yes, I agree a play of that magnitude should have been reviewed, but nothing would have been overturned. They would have either upheld the ruling on the field, or ruled there was insufficient evidence to overturn. Indeed, the VP of officiating has already come out and said the replay offical in the booth looked at the play and decided that the ruling on the field was correct and there was no need to offical challange it. Was that the correct move? Maybe not. But either way, the play would have stuck.

As for the Holmes celebration. Yes, it warrents a penalty. But the refs can't catch everything. And its not like it was a long, drawn out celebration. He did it and it was over in seconds. Its very likely the refs missed it? They are human afterall....humans that stuck their noses in the game too much, but human.

Should we talk about the fact that Harrison drew 3 holding calls while being held ALL GAME LONG? Should we talk about a few blocks in the back during punts that should have drawn flags on the Cards? Should we talk about how Taylor got a PF when he didn't do anymore than the person he was shoving on the sidelines?

Come on people, refs are not biased. The nfl doesn't want certain teams to win. All these conspiracy theories are just plain silly.

Great game to watch. Reffing was not very good. No offense Steelers fans, but more of the breaks went your way. I was actually cheering for the Steelers (I try and cheer for the AFC, as long as its not INDY), and once again the calls went your way. I don't think that was the reason Pittsburgh won, but it certainly didn't hurt. I actually feel bad for Steeler's fans. Pats fans went through it all last season. Every time something good happened all the cheating comments were thrown out. And now this Super Bowl will be remembered like SBXL, always with a sliver of doubt.
