I think that the steelers SUCK The unsportsmanlike conduct is absolutely unacceptable and they should be ashamed of that. They bullied their way and they would not have won the game had they not been NASTY with the opposing team. I was not routing for either team and yet they are by far the worst team I have ever seen in super bowl history. I live just outside of Tampa Bay, Fla and even our team has never been that disrespectful. They did not earn the title... they stole it they should be very ashamed !!!

You might need to watch a little more football, fights happen during the course of the game. It happens and Harrison was penalized for it. I don't advocate fighting on the field, but I understand emotions run high. Harrison did his job on special teams in blocking #47 Francisco and holding him down, you are taught to do that, the only thing he did wrong was throw a forearm over his back and then tossed him to the ground.

But theire were small fracases throughout the game. Did you notice Heath Miller get tossed five yards backwards after making a catch and going down at the 1 yard line? The whistle had clearly blown and he was clearly down and not forcing himself forward anymore. Did you think that was okay?

Did you think it was okay that #24 Adrian Wilson ran over the holder (our punter) on a field goal attempt? For goodness sakes the Berger is already in a kneeling position. But I guess that was okay, because clearly Mitch Berger bullied his way from holding position, because as we all know, punters like to be known as the tough guy.

I guess those two instances were okay in your book.

By the way, disrespectful is the Tampa Bay Bucs running Tony Dungy out of town. Disrespectful is the TB owner threatening to move the franchise and using Baltimore as a bargaining chip, in order to get a new stadium deal for a team that at that time, had done nothing but wallow in obscurity.
