He will probably be fined but that does not change the FACT that he is absolutely right in what he said ! Is the NFL going to start fining the ref's on these biased and bad calls? The Clark roughness call was ticky tacky but this call at a pivotal time in the game after allowing the hit on Big Ben earlier in the game when he had enough time turn away from the coming hit after the throw and then calling this one without a step taken after the pass is terrible. And did you see the ref who called Washington for taunting ? He looked personally offended by this minor "taunt" if you can call it that. Then last night not calling a penalty when R.Bush's facemask was nearly ripped off before the fumble and then even after review saying Peterson's knee was down before his fumble ?? The list so far this year could go on and on, the Denver debacle and so fourth, how about we start holding these ref's accountable.

Some wacky shot going on. Why don't they do that to all the other players who SEEMED to really show taunting & lack of ethics when out on the field.
My God, how many times I've seen some classless jerks really getting into the spirit of being an asshole & going off. How is holding out the football towards the crowd worth fining him? I saw alot of other bad calls going on during that game w/the Steelers vs. the Jaguars. Must be some officials needing lasik or cataract surgery, or possibly hearing aids.

WELL, it is a fact that the Steelers constantly get apology letters from the league offices in NYC for ref's making idiotic calls against them. I cant tell you how many games the refs have cost them in the last 10 years. Just like with Harrison that "taunting" call against Washington after that great first down catch and that "defensive interferance" call that was TOTALLY bogus.

Oh?
How did you find that out? I'm curious.
Well, they should get some apology letters from having to get numerous stupid, idiotic calls from the refs w/head up ass syndrome. There are many other football players who should recieve them, too.

He's right--I can remember four or five of those letters over the last few years. In thinking about Sunday's game, I suddenly remembered ANOTHER ridiculous call--one that could have completely altered the outcome of the game: that phantom false-start on the 2-point conversion attempt. Clearly, the replays showed no false start, and Madden and Michaels were baffled by it, but it was called and moved the Steelers five yards back, which might as well be a mile when you're going for a conversion. Fortunately, it didn't matter, but it sure could have.

Well, were they in the Post Gazette?(the apology letter) That's what I was asking.

The PG carried the stories when they happened, but I don't think they ever published the actual letters. I'd like to see what one looks like.

waterboard those refs with iron city beer! now that's torture...I remember that weird false start. I didn't agree with Ike's pass interference call either. The officiating seems to be sup par.

So would I, Rexy, so would I. I'd love to see what the jagoffs said.
