Well, the Steelers did indeed really STEAL this one.

Refs either blew it bigtime, or were part of the same crew that was paid off for Super Bowl XL. In an interview, the line judge claimed he didn't even know the ruling of that play .

What a whiner! What has the League said about the call? So what if the line judge didnt know the rule? It is the referee's and the booth's decision.

Oh, by the way..."I called NFL vice president of officiating Mike Pereira, who'd spoken with Coleman and the replay assistant following the game. Now, I have to tell you that in my jobs at NBC and Sports Illustrated I have occasion to speak with Pereira nearly every weekend about a play or two from the games, either to clarify something for the Football Night in America show or for my column. Pereira calls them the way he sees them. My experience is that Pereira does not whitewash a bad call. And last night, I asked him point blank if he thought there was indisputable visual evidence that the ball broke the plane of the goal line. "Yes, I do,'' he said."

Let's see..so the Steelers, who were playing in Baltimore, planned to have a controversial scoring call at the end of the game that would decide the game? The the ravens must've been in on it too, since they let the Steelers walk right down the field against their great defense. Or maybe the ravens are still just wannabes. Flacco must've been in on it too since he threw a pick at the end. Heck even ray ray lewis (Mr obstruction of justice himself) must've been in on it since he didn't make a play on the 92 yard touchdown drive.

Yep that makes perfect sense, the Steelers paid off everyone in the NFL from the front office on down just so they could beat the ravens.

Have someone wipe your mouth, you're drooling on yourself again. Maybe you need more medication. Idiot.

Oh R. Check, you will say anything because it's not YOUR team who won. Yeah, the game pretty much was a dragging, waiting, field goal, annoying sort of game, but WE scored a TD, end of story, your "Powerhouse" purplettes, couldn't even get one. I expected a little more from the birds,@ least.
The blimp view clearly showed his catch was over the plain. Case closed, quit your whining, excuses, & flame throwing. Your 'green' slip is showing dear.

Any time we win, & get more over on their team, they can't just except it, & wish they could be throwing losing insults our way. Typical of them. Makes them so mad, & makes me laugh all the more.
Ahh, God bless us, every one.

its hard for bird team fans to believe their lying eyes. their brains aren't big enough due to bird's small craniums. lol. when something upsets their world view their initial reaction is to flap their wings and squawk. once one starts squawking they are start squawking. It's to be expected...ya know that whole flock thing.

TO quote David Allen Grier's Men on Film's character(from In Living Color):
"Aint dat the truth, Ruth?"

:D

BUT.....if they think they are going to win over the Titans--the beloved Steelers better get their 2nd 1/2 brains out of their butts!! No acid reflux football anymore!!!! Makes me crazy when they pull that last little surprise out in the remaining quarter!
