    We still haven't even touched on the attempted bad call of Hasselbeck fumbling the ball after being pushed to the ground. The official was even standing on the side of Hasselbeck's body where the contact was made. Thank God that one was reversed on review.

    Dont forget about he Refs turning on the air conditioning to create a breeze just before two of the three field goal attempts by Brown. They must have forgotton on the one he made.

    Now this is really grabbing at straws -- Hasselbaeck was bailed out on that one because somebody happened to make slight contact with him as he was beginning to stumble towards the ground.

    And, this isn't any major conspiracy -- NFL referees have become bad with the "slow whistle" in order to avoid having a play become unreviewable due to stoppage of the play. That's a leaguewide policy I take issue with, because it places the burden on one team to use one of their limited challenges to correct a call that obviously should've been blown dead as an incomplete pass or down by contact.

    Worst super bowl champion of all time.

    Sour grapes? Yep.

    Still true though.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Slight contact? Looked like a push to me.

    That game was an example of the sad state of the NFL product. The salary cap has been the death blow to great football.

    Wow, an "attempted bad call" that was thwarted, perhaps by Jack Bauer?

    Are you guys listening to yourselves?

    Sava, tell me you're really not Oliver Stone.

    Yes, because without a cap, we can look forward to The Cowboys, Redskins and one or tow other huge revenue teams running the NFL.

    The great thing about the NFL is nobody cares two weeks after the super bowl. It's about the draft and onward to the future. It's time for the Bengals to prove who the better team was and is. We have the better Qb, the better coach. We just need to get as dirty as the Steelers.

    They are a sad team to watch. They are the lowest of low on the class scale. They ridicule and taunt players with 3 seconds left in the super bowl.

    Yep, that 49ers and Cowboys dynasties were made by money and not amazing draft choices. Did you just start watching football last week ? I'd point you to the greatest trade in sports history, Herschel Walker. I doubt it would do you good though lol.

    How much did the 49ers sign Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Roger Craig, John Taylor, Ronnie Lott, and Brent Jones for?

    Get a clue dude. Football today is a watered down joke. I'll still watch it, but I'm not gonna sit here and say great teams win the game much anymore.

    That's why somewhere deep down I at least respect the Patriots and the Steelers organizations, if not their players. But these teams face no competition anymore. It's sucky vs major sucky.

    In light of his comments this week, Stevens deserved to be taunted and ridiculed after his sorry performance. It's football, not a chess match. Taunting goes on all the time.

    So, how did they pull it off?

    Was there a meeting where they accepted their assignment to steer the Super Bowl?

    How far does the conspiracy extend?
