I Guess I’m Not The Only One

The officiating in Super Bowl XL was really crappy.

I’m not the only one who thinks so.

The ticky-tack push off early in the game was understandable, and it happened so early the Seahawks had plenty of time to recover. But then we had

  • The questionable touchdown for Pittsburgh that even the linesman couldn’t make his mind up about
  • The holding penalty that negated a first and goal at the one
  • The odd chop block call on Hasselbeck
  • The touchdown called out-of-bounds when the receiver’s left foot came down out-of-bounds after kicking the pylon (which is in bounds and an extension of the goal line!)
  • The refs trying to give the ball back to the Steelers on an obvious Hasselbeck non-fumble late in the game.

I really had not interest either way in who won this game. I’m just making an observation from an uninterested outsider: The officiating was atrocious.
