I was hoping that the Steelers would lose. They were winning so I went to Walmart. I came back home and they were losing. Then they won the game in the last few minutes. I should've stayed at Walmart.

And if you think the officiating was crap, it went both ways, friend. There was so much holding by the Cardinals that didn't get called--and then they got the safety on an absolute crap call...

Either way...STEELERS MAKE HISTORY!!! Wooohooo!
that hold on the safety was completely justified

This is the damn Super Bowl, they could have at least reviewed the play.
head of officials said the booth reviewed the call and confirmed it was a fumble.

Of course you don't care if they review it, your team won...
The point is, it's the Super Bowl, do it anyway. That was a close call, even if it was a fumble. Although I am still in denial.

The safety was legit, and it was basically the only real break we got.

I will admit, some of the holding calls against AZ were legit, but teams hold all the time and it goes uncalled, Pittsburgh does it too, that is nothing. But the personal foul calls were a bit ridiculous. Also the roughing the passer call against AZ was bogus considering they did the same thing to Warner about 3 or 4 times. There was no question that the calls fell on the side of Pittsburgh tonight, and a lot of them were bogus. That's how it goes sometimes. I take nothing away from Pittsburgh for what they have accomplished, but of course I would have liked to see it turn out different.

Oh yeah, CONGRATS CHUCK...wherever you are!

It was a fumble.

In live action, I thought his arm was moving forward but when they showed the slow motion replay, it was pretty clear that the ball was knocked loose before his arm went forward. Sorry, non-argument.

Why the heck they run a slant with 18 seconds left I will never know. What about run fades to the corners. Or heck kick a field goal and go to half tied stupid

Agreed, that was a bad call.

Yeah, I mean considering that the Steerlers only allowed a team over 300 yards one other time this year and the Cardinals managed to come up with just over 400, I would say they all looked good.

Again credit to Satonio Holmes for making a great catch, but it was totally BOGUS that the refs did not give him a penalty for using the ball as a prop to celebrate after that touchdown. The one time the celebration penalty would have actually effected the game, and they don't call it...go figure.
