That would have made the score 17-14 in favor of the seahawks. I'm not claiming a conspiracy or anything, it's just the same shitty officiating alot of games have been getting the past couple of years.
I had no preference on which team won, but wished that these shitty calls hadn't tainted one teams victory. The fans deserved a "clear" winner.
NOTE: Big Ben even admitted in Letterman that he didn't think he made it over the goalline.
The phantom hold was BS as well and that penalty on the tackle by Hasselbeck was utter BS. Let me explain to you why the Superbowl blew.
1. The refs should never be the biggest stars of the game
2. The commercials sucked
3. The Stones were AWFUL. Did you see the flaps of skin hanging off the arms? Ick....
4. Singing the National Anthem requires multiple people? It's that strenuous a task?
5. That DR. Suess thing was lame.
6. Former NFL MVPs without the Bradshaw and Montana?????
I dont care the reason. Ya gotta have em. Lock em down, pay them what you need to, or don't have it. It's like a Bulls reunion without Jordan and Pippen, but hey we got Cartright and Longley.
7. The REFs.....
I don't care what anyone say, they took away any chance Seattle had of winning. Seattle may not have the better team, but on that day they clearly were the better team. They had less turnovers, more offensive yards, won time of possession, and had the better QB. No team in the history of the NFL has managed all that and lost. I'm not saying conspiracy or that it was caused, but clearly the refs had far too much influence on that game which is sad.
