Here we go! (clap clap).

Despite the best efforts of the refs in Indy, the Steelers dominate the best team in football and advance to the AFC championship game. Tomorrow’s headline in the Post Gazette might could read: “Missed Fieldgoal Prevents Highway Robbery in the RCA Dome”. Never before in a lifetime of watching football have I been compelled to write to the Commisioner, but today I did:

The NFL must do something about the atrocious calls during the Colts-Steelers game today. Never in my life of watching the game (which began in 1974 at the age of 5) have I seen a worse call than that of the reversal of the Polamalu interception. I believe the non-call on pass interference was also objectionable, but will let that slide in light of what amounts to one of the worst replay reversals in NFL history.

You guys need to get your shit together regarding this and fast. It cheapens the game and makes true fans not want to watch. It appeared blatantly partisan in favor of the Colts who were up to that point getting their asses handed to them.

I never want to see Pete Morelli referee another game. He should be fined and then fired. Triplette should be ashamed. The NFL should be ashamed. YOU should be ashamed.

I and other NFL fans expect a full inquiry into this most bizarre ruling on the field and I would like to hear from your office as that moves forward. Please reply to this and let me know what is being done. I anxiously await your reply.

Huge, dominating win for the Steelers. Next up, Denver. Pardon me while I breathe and bust out the defibrillator. Never, ever should have been that close though. They tried their best to take it away from us, but came up short. GO STEELERS!

PS – This is priceless!

 
  • from my view – it was an interception – no doubt.

  • Pounder

    Stoolers always find something to whine about.

    Go Bronco’s ! heh.

    ps. Manning is a play-off choker.

  • Eric

    Pounder. Dude. You gotta stop picking against the Stillers, my man. It’s puttin’ a hurtin’ on your pick percentages!

    No whining…just speakin da troof homie. Game shoulda been over right then, right there. No fan, not even horsie fans, are calling that an incomplete pass.

    Pick against the Steelers again this week, will ya? Promise?

  • Pounder

    Yup, picking against them until they are in the SB- LOL. Then it will hurt even more.

    and yeah that interception call was BS.
    Boy I thought fat boy had blown the game for the steelers though, but you can always rely on the Colts to choke.

  • While you have them investigating that, might as well have them look into the Palmer hit from last weekend too.

  • Eric

    LOL. You know, had the refs reviewed that Palmer hit and called it illegal motion on Kimo, I surely would question the call. Pounder, didn’t you mention something about whiners?

    It’s too bad Palmer got hurt, but shit happens. Not the officiating at fault there though. As I remember though, a Palmer-less Bungles team had us down 17-7 still…no?

    When I say “Who Dey” you say “We Dey”.

  • Heh.

  • randy s

    i agree Pete should be fined at least, he could’ve messed up people’s destinys(sp)(i got really really mad at the calls he was making)…anyways i couldnt find the commissioners email..but i emailed the NFL about my opinion…thanks for the inspiratioin
