I don't know what game the refs were watching because as far as I could tell it was Hawks 17 Steelers 14. Now I can't say I was keeping an eye on the game the whole time because I did have to work, but I got to see a robbed touchdown (how was that pass interference?)... a bullshit touchdown (if the ball goes over the line after you're down it doesn't count) and some really shitty reffing all around (if you hit a guy that has the ball it's called a tackle, not blocking). Never have I heard so many people yell bullshit so loud and so many times. But what do you expect. East coast team, east coast stadium, east coast fans and of course, east coast refs.|
If Seattle had played a bad game I would understand. It's a Seattle thing, come real far and then choke, we would expect it. It's been done before.. many times. But to play good football and then get fucked by some retarded officiating is pretty fuct.
"I've never felt so empty being right. I feel dirty. I wish I'd been wrong. The Steelers did not deserve to win this game. They were not the better team. O'Connor was right. Seattle was the better team.
So, Paul Tagliabue, how does a team lose when it outgains an opponent by 57 yards, controls time of possession and wins the turnover battle?" http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5310192
yeah... check the stats, who deserved to win? who got fucked? who lost 40 bucks on the game... oh wait, that last one was me... hence the bitterness.
So, I lost some money betting on the game. No biggie, but to work on super sunday... the tips were good when there was some hope, but the worse the game got the worse the tips were. I swear to god, if the seahawks had won I would have broken 500 easy. And for that, if nothing else, I'm fucking pissed.
Amen, girl ... said the same thing in my own LJ.
A milestone for the Steelers, but not one to be proud of, necessarily. The phrase "skin of their teeth" comes to mind ... and even then the ref should have simply worn black and yellow to spare any confusion of impartiality.

We were all alone on this coast rooting for seattle.
