There was no cheating in Super Bowl XL. Were there some questionable calls? Yes, but they didn't heavily favor either team. When it comes down to it, the team that made the least mistakes won the game.
The same will likely be true in Super Bowl XLIII
It's obvious you didn't see the replays. Watch them then comment, but watch them first.

I've watched that game maybe thirty times, and I've watched the "Inside the NFL" where they debunked every single one of the claims of shoddy officiating. On Ben's TD, they used a laser and high-def augmentation to prove the nose of the ball crossed the plane before he was pushed back. On the offensive interference call, they looked at it several times from several angles and all agreed it was a warranted call. Etc., etc. The one truly blown call was the holding penalty that negated a big gain for Hasselbeck. Haggans was DEFINITELY held on the play, but he was also offside, and that should have given Hasselbeck a free play. Other than that, it's just a lot of whiny beyotches wandering around in the Northwestern rain and fog.

Well maybe their record or division can make you think that, but they won when they had to, and that's basically all you need to do. I mean like you said they did massacre the Panthers but good (Which I had a hard time believing too) and then they held off the Eagles (hard time believing that one as well).
lol you, i would have lost ALOT of money on that game i would have bet the house on on the eagles winning that one lol oh yeah that kick return that was not out of bounds that was the cards ball

I actually did lose a bet on the Eagles-Cardinals game, but it's only a drink so I'm ok with it. I never would've expected the Cards to come out on top. But I guess on any given Sunday...

We all know it's a business before it is a sport. The Steelers are a better draw than teams like Seattle and Baltimore because of their history and location, therefore the referees make ridiculous calls like roughing the kicker, chopblock tackles, and give away free goal line touchdowns when the game is too close in order to give the better drawing team an advantage so the league can make more money off of merchandise.

The worst part about it is you people let it ruin your entire life and use it as another excuse to be pissed off when you know you should just be honest with yourself, turn the TV off and get a fucking life.

Anyone who gets as wound up as you over conspiracies in football is truly the one who needs to get a life. Your actually the one who needs to scale it back a little before you go out and shoot somebody over nothing. When it's all about the boogy man over who won a game- now that's a little too tight. Relax, take a breath, and it will all be O.K. Those bad people who just want to destroy your life are really not there.

In an odd little twist, Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt has his roots with the Steelers, serving as offensive coordinator from 2004-2006, including the Super Bowl-winning team. Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt and assistant head coach Russ Grimm were bypassed for the Steelers' job after Bill Cowher departed in 2006. The job went to Mike Tomlin. The time Whisenhunt spent on the Steelers' staff gives him firsthand knowledge of what the Steelers like to do defensively. Whisenhunt has an advantage in this matchup because he knows better than most what makes Roethlisberger uncomfortable. Assistant head coach/offensive line coach Russ Grimm was with Whisenhunt in Pittsburgh.
The Arizona Cardinals had just lost to New England by 40 points, Whisenhunt threatened to bench players in the playoffs if they didn’t practice well. Then something clicked. An Arizona defense that allowed 183 yards on the ground at New England shut down the league’s No. 2 and No. 3 rushing teams—Atlanta and Carolina—forcing nine turnovers in the process. Atlanta managed 60 yards on the ground against the Cardinals, Carolina 75.

yeah yeah I read that column too...of course you realize that coach LeBeau also knows Grimm and Whisenhunts tendencies too? My money is on LeBeau and the steeler's sledge hammer D.

Not drafted, Kurt Warner attended the Green Bay Packers training camp in 1994, but was released before the regular season began. With no NFL teams willing to give him a chance, Warner turned to the Arena Football League in 1995. Warner was the backup quarterback for the St. Louis Rams during the 1998 regular season and the 1999 preseason. The Rams won it all in 1999 and Warner was the game’s MVP. However, the heavily favored Rams lost to the New England Patriots in 2001. In 2005, Warner signed with the Cardinals
During the regular season, Warner was the best quarterback in the league against the blitz. He completed 134 of 208 passes for 1,645 yards and 14 touchdowns in blitz situations. Ben Roethlisberger was 95-of-180 for 1,158 yards with five touchdowns and five interceptions against the blitz in the regular season. Here's the key stat: Roethlisberger was sacked 29 times in 209 dropbacks against the blitz in the regular season. How Warner works the play-action pass will clearly affect how LeBeau uses safety Troy Polamalu. No safety in football has the range of Polamalu, who can line up as a deep safety or charge the line of scrimmage to blitz. Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor had his best season in 2008, allowing 59 completions against him in 108 attempts, and getting beaten for only two touchdowns.

actually if there is ANY advantage to the Whiz being an ex-steeler, wouldn't that be on the offensive side? with his knack for trick plays and knowledge of the "legendary" steel curtain, i would imagine the holes in the secondary and front line defensive themes would outweigh an advantage for the Cards' defense over Big Ben's side of the ball????

I think they both would come into play but of course you'd be hard pressed to gain the advantage over the steelers defense. now the steelers offense is the weekest part of the team and the Whisser knows Big Ben pretty well. I'll bet he tries to press his advantage there. Last time the two teams played he really disrupted Ben and the offense. But come to think of it Warner came in and ran the no huddle pretty well against the defense. I guess we have to wait for the game before we decide who wins or loses. ha ha ha.
