This past Sunday, I think was the most disappointed and depressed I've ever been for any football game result in my life, and I'm 58. I remember the 1st time I actually watched the Super Bowl and I was 9, and I wanted the Colts to beat the Jets, I think I cried about that. and I was really mad when the Steelers lost to the Chargers in the 1994 AFCCG too. But this game was just SHOCK. I didn't even care what happened after the overturned TD. I wasn't at all upset that Ben threw that pick and we didn't see OT, I was barely paying attention, because I was kind of in a comatose stupor, just stunned, because I couldn't get over that they had overturned a TD to beat the Patriots for the #1 seed with 20 seconds left. It was the ultimate "DON'T let the players decide it"! Can't believe I watched football from the '60s until now, and THIS is the most depressing, disappointing game I've ever witnessed. I didn't yell or curse or break anything, I was just staring at the floor, kind of sick. And I couldn't sleep, I layed in bed awake until like 4 am, I was just stunned about it, yeah, it's just a game, but I never saw anything like that! A win of that magnitude just snatched away purely on some officiating nitpicking! And I don't care if it's correct by the rule, the NHL doesn't call legit penalties in the playoffs over the idea of letting the players decide, and here, the biggest game of the year, the biggest Steelers game maybe in many years, is decided like that?

I think the guy on the vid was playing for the camera as much as anything else. I think is the most legit flip-out vid I've ever seen....Brett Favre pic in NFC Championship '09, Vikes v. Saints

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PUAgITZfq0

I've actually only thrown shit twice in my life.....
*Once was taking off my shirt, throwing it at the TV on the Sid Fuckin' Bream play.
*Other was throwing my glasses at the TV on the Socrates Mendenhall fumble.

I've had a couple of other classic flip-outs with no physicality involved....
*Dennis Fuckin' Gibson...'94 AFCCG vs. Chargers
*Holding call in end zone in SB XLIII

Lately, my flip-outs have been almost exclusively positively-based.....screaming during good shit, as I did on Sunday when I THOUGHT we had finally beaten the Patriots. Once we hadn't.....I honestly did nothing in response.

If the Steelers would of just lost in a typical manner, because they couldn't score on that drive, I would have walked away, "entertained", I would of said, they played pretty well and fought back and almost pulled it out. But the way it happened, with the best team in the league, THE ZEBRAS... inserting themselves and going out of their way to win it for the Patriots, it was like having your heart ripped out, you can say it was according to the rule, but if they had wanted to, it wasn't clear cut 100%, they could of spun the answer in the Steelers favor, it was inconclusive, had they given the Steelers the TD, there would be less controversy IMO than there was by overturning it.

I heard someone say they listened to Sal Pal, and he happened to be positioned next to the ref while he was under the hood reviewing the play. Sal didn’t want to divulge his lip reading, and put it that the ref was very animated. I suspect the Tony C. was overruled by NY HQ, and was forced to “insert” his crew into the outcome of the game, which would then explain why there was a no call in the end zone, because if it would have been up to Tony, they would not have been seen nor heard from in the final minutes but for the announcement that the play that wasn’t upheld, was upheld.

I was not upset at all with the int as I was too deflated and discombobulated at that point.

I heard Sal Pal. He DID say that the discussion between Corrente & NYC was very animated. He did NOT comment on the position that Corrente was taking.

Personally, and this is where I THINK i get irrational, the response from NYC was like this...."Hey Tony, the Pompous Fuck Robert Kraft will be up our ass far more than The Fuckin' Douchebag Art II if we rule against him.....so call it for the Patriots."

Wouldn't that be similar to what John Madden thinks Fred Swearingen was on the phone for back in 1972?

"Do you have enough security to safely escort me and my crew out of Three Rivers? No"?

"TOUCHDOWN STEELERS!"

I think the biggest flip out is me standing up with my hands on my head yelling "what the fuck?!?!"

But that's in my home with no recording devices around.

I've never thrown stuff, or been pissed for more than a few hours.

With the exception of last sunday. And I was on a fucking airplane.

At least I had movies, close quarters, and a long flight and time ahead to distract me.

The Shazier injury fucked me up more than any game - ever. Even my partner said it made me sad for days afterward.

I told a tech today at work I would knock him out if we weren't at work so at this time do not talk to me about the game. He was trying to bust my balls thinking he was funny. I didn't laugh nor him having NE's defense in his fantasy league registered on my give a fuck meter. I'll likely never get over this game. I'll try to get past it and hopefully by Sunday I will be (usually it's Wednesday/Thursday after a loss). This one stings. I'm at the end of my fucking rope taking losses to those mother fuckers from NE.

Now, reading the last posts about Corrente being animated and interpreting this as the NFL secret fucking headquarters control room forced this call make me hate this fuckin league even more and just reiterates the bullshit entertainment aspect of fixed games.

I'm still one miserable bastard.

As I stated in Swiss' believe thread, since I stopped boozing like a panhandler, I've come to expect Tomlin to fuck away every single game he ever plays against the cheats. This makes it hard to stay mad.

I still think, had it been Ed Hoculi, could have come out, said...."Receiver made the catch, extended over the goal line, in the process of going to the ground, the ball moved. However, there is no indisputable evidence that the receiver lost control of the football at any point. Therefore, the ruling on the field stands. Touchdown." I have dreams that that happened.

This isn't getting better as the week goes on; it's getting worse. And I'm getting more and more pissed at the Steelers brain trust.

A few years back I would have been crazy mad over this. Especially before SB 40 as we were so close so many times the need to get over the hump and “win one for the thumb” was so important.

The deterioration in the quality of play, officiating, and inconsistent handling of punishment has caused me to lose some interest in the NFL. I expect stupid shit (especially calls) to occur and when it does I’m not the least bit surprised. Just like whatever, par for the course.

So I don’t get anywhere close to being as upset as I once would have been. And that can be a good thing.

Problem is, if you don’t care as much about the losses then you end up not as excited about the wins. The passion has been neutered.

I’m actually more discouraged that we have a HC, OC, and QB that continue to make rookie mistakes as long tenured professionals. The bad calls I fully expect at this point.

The boneheaded shit our current triumvirate do time and again is much harder to overcome and causes much more pessimism about this team than the horrible state of officiating does.

If Mikey, Todd, and Ben were all on point it would have been beyond the leagues control to fuck us.

The problem is...there are too many Steeler fans who believe this game was stolen from us by the refs, so Tomlin, et al, have cover for their mistakes.

Hell...Tomlin essentially blamed the refs for his team being unprepared on second and third down. “They gave us too much to think about!”

Bigger problem is Tomlin believes this as well. It’s never him

When that happened, I just hung my head, said, "Oh no...again."

Other one, I didn't flip out on, but was pissed beyond belief, didn't involve a Steeler game....was when that fuckin' asshole Ryan Succop missed the FG for the Chefs that would have put the Steelers in the playoffs in 2013.

I've never LOVED the Rooneys, I'd rather have a pompous fuck like Kraft or J. Jones who fucks with league for their own team's benefit, than people like the Rooneys who seem subservient to the league to me.

Who would you replace him with? He is the second best coach in the league right now! Do you know of a coach that is between best and second best? If you were wearing the crown, and knew Ben’s window, no way you would risk that type of change.

On another note, just watched Inside the NFL, and I agree with the mentality to not put yourself in a position to have the refs decide a game, but Boomer Esiason was way out of line; talking like he was Tom Brady and had earned umpteen rings in his day.

The “what is a catch” segment was a joke. None of them brought up the point of irrefutable evidence.

If when Jesse James was on one knee prior to going to the elbow and someone came up and shoved him to the ground and the ball came out, they would have ruled him down by contact, or the ground caused the fumble....I guarantee it!

I didn’t flip out at all, back in the day I would have lost my shit and been a miserable fuck to be around for at least a week. Maybe getting older and accepting the fact that my teams aren’t going to win it all every year has helped. Maybe being a diehard Laker fan has helped as well. I haven’t missed a Steeler game since I got the ticket in 96 and usually only miss 3-4 Laker games per year, but the Lakers have been in extreme suckville for years (as I type this I am watching them beat the Rockets, only knowing there is leterally zero chance in hell they will win) so maybe that has put some perspective on my fandom, therefore I think I probably have enjoyed the Steelers success over the last several years more than most. Fact is the PS will be in the playoffs once again this year, possibly a 1 or 2 seed awaits them, and possibly a revenge match with the Pats, which I don’t fear as much as most, because we are the better team and maybe the Pats luck against us will eventually run out. For example, when was the last game we played the Pats and did not have 1 of the big 3 missing in action, you can’t tell me that if AB doesn’t leave the game on the 2nd series last Sunday we still would have lost.

As far as gut punch games go this game does rank up there, probably number 2 for me for Steeler games, the top one being the O’Donnel gift giving event against the Cowboys.

On a side note, I am also a huge golf fan and am glad they finally did away with actual fucking TV viewers being able to call in and effect outcomes of golf tournaments. Could you imagine being Lexi Thompson playing in a major on the final day with a 2 shot lead, and a rules official coming to you on the 12th hole of the final round and letting you know they were assessing you a 4 shot penalty because a TV viewer had called in and noticed that on the 17th hole in the prior round you didn’t correctly replace your ball on the putting green, now could you imagine if they let football fans call in and report missed calls....glad to see golf finally got their head out of their asses and changed that rule, now maybe the NFL can take this call and others and finally get their heads out of their asses and change this stupid going to the ground bullshit.

Who would you replace him with? He is the second best coach in the league right now! Do you know of a coach that is between best and second best? If you were wearing the crown, and knew Ben’s window, no way you would risk that type of change.

On another note, just watched Inside the NFL, and I agree with the mentality to not put yourself in a position to have the refs decide a game, but Boomer Esiason was way out of line; talking like he was Tom Brady and had earned umpteen rings in his day.

The “what is a catch” segment was a joke. None of them brought up the point of irrefutable evidence.

If when Jesse James was on one knee prior to going to the elbow and someone came up and shoved him to the ground and the ball came out, they would have ruled him down by contact, or the ground caused the fumble....I guarantee it!



The only person I have heard on TV arguing you couldn’t ever see the ball on the ground or if his right hand was still under the ball or not was that doucher Tim Hasselbeck on ESPN, in which Trey Wingo kept arguing with him that that didn’t matter because he lost control, in which Hasselbeck said yeah the ball did move, but if it didn’t touch the ground it doesn’t matter.
