    Football is a joke...

    ...the current Super Bowl we are watching is proof of this.

    Sorry, this is sad...and this is coming from the guy that was talking sportsmanship in the 100-0 thread.

    The officiating is occasionally a joke.

    Not the actual game.

    You have a QB that is scrambling on a dead play and throws it to no one, but a defended chasing said QB can't break his momentum and knocks the QB over and it is a major penalty.

    Second, You have a defended that attempts to block a FG and as the football is going through the uprise the defended knocks over the HOLDER and thus the Steelers get 3 more attemps at a TD.

    On play #1 I think the penalty should have been intentional grounding against the quarterback, not the other way around.

    Officiating occasionally is a joke but replay rules have really helped this. They need to be able to review penalties though.

    And on the FG penalty, it wouldn't have been that hard to step to either side or jump

    ffgamemane & mrredsox,

    Thank you...I'm not the only one.

    Those calls, that drive, and the officials are all a joke and other than rooting for Warner...I could care less who wins.

    And, I am not versed in football rules - however, I thought that the rule was for roughing the kicker, not the holder.

    the facemask penelty was crap, the late hit #1 was more crap and late hit #2 was total crap, plus they didn't call 2-3 holds/blocks in the back on some of those plays too...

    Re: Football is a joke...

    Oh no, I dont believe its a joke. I just feel that if you can review plays, you should be able to review penalties. Intentional grounding is one of the most straightforward rules in the NFL and Roethlisberger did not commit that penalty. I do agree however that the roughing the passer calls throughout the season have become a little absurd but they do call it the same throughout the league.

    And on the penalty on the FG attempt, I never knew there was a rule about roughing the holder but obviously there is.

    If the Arizona Cardinals lose they can't completely blame it on the officiating though....altogether they have played a very, very poor game.

    Well then it should still be a penalty. The penalty isnt for intent its for action
