The officiating was horribly one-sided in favor of the New York Yankees of football, the Pittsburgh Steelers. James Harrison's "historic" interception return shouldn't have been counted. Any nonbiased person knows the final score was 23-20 in favor of the Cards. Warner played much better than Roethlisberger, proving himself a much more adept field general than "Big Ben". Larry Fitzgerald proved to be the most explosive receiver in the game today. The classless behavior of the brutish Steelers with their personal fouls and trash talking after the game did not make for NFL-caliber football. I thought Goodell was brought in to clean up the game. They should have a best of five to correct this crime! The Cardinals are the true champions.

I was suprised how slow that big bastard moved and he wasn't sacked. it's like he runs in slow motion, but in real time.

THe calls were good, cardinals just penaltied themselves to death.

Harrison should be fired or at least arrested for assault for his antics on field.

I was rooting for the steelers up til that point.

The refs didn't win the game. If you have to get to point where the where decide the game, you lost. Cardinals had a chance until Warner too long to make the only option he had, throw it to Fitzgerald.

Whoa!!! What a game! Larry Fitzgerald really pulled off a spectacular 64-yard touchdown. The Cardinals had the Steelers sweating when they made that great 4th-quarter comeback. Ultimately, Santonio Holmes did his 'tiptoe touchdown' to win the game. I'm not a big sports fan but this game had my blood pumping and my eyes glued to the screen 'til the very end. Both teams were spectacular! Congratulations to the Steelers!

The fix for six worked.

Horrible officiating.

The Rooney mob, greased the officials again.

Win or loose ,it was a great game!Those Red Birds have nothing to hang their head down for!But Winning is everything,losing is unacceptable...Thats the way it is. Num.2 ,won't do!!

One incident showed was that Steeler,beating on that Cardinal on the groung....he should have been KICKED out......Why was he not??...Touch the quarterback,ya get flagged..mug and assault a guy?..no flag!...I would hope when reviewing this game ,they fine $$$ that jerk...Contact yes,assulting??...That was the worst of the refs miss call!

Oh yes,Politics.Drinking and driving don't mix,neither should Politics and sports,

That old man,Rooney at the award ceremony,just had to Obamaize it...no class!..Not the place for that!..Just send the money,and take the deduction!!.. More than Half of that crowded did not support Obama.The FOLK could never afford the ticket.Private jets by the hundreds!..Limos all over the place...the lovelies in every box!HAIL CAESAR!!

We know Rooney is a huge supporter of Obama,no big deal,but at that moment?...You judge!!Then again he may be looking for a Hand Out Too!!The old geezer ain't stupid!!

Well now all DC are Steeler fans,Obama was a Bear fan before he is is a Pittsburgh fan. So much for loyality.Which begs the question .."REDSKINS".. The DC team! What if....Then again they won't be the Skins no more...Redskins ,the old team name,Offends some!!....soon to be the "NO-NAME TEAM".......The State do not approve of that in this Changed enverment!!

Harrison should have been ejected for assault instead the penalty amounted to about 6 inches, half the distant to the goal when the ball is already on the 1 yrd line.
Holmes should have been penalized for using the ball as a prop to celebrate, that is a penalty call all season consistently. But not here.
And Warner pass deserver more of a look. Plays like that routinely get looked at for longer during the season but in the super bowl in a critical time, it seemed like the refs couldn't wait to give the ball the Stealers fast enough.
They are all in bed together.
