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?

Nick, seriously not trying to be a smartass, but welcome back from "just wanting to be entertained" while watching football.

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.

It is just a game?

When you watch it by yourself or you are with the friends in which you can let your freak flag fly, I suspect quite a few on this board would rival this fellow.

Racial slurs at the opposite race, calls for snapped tendons and broken spines....mother insults....People that perpetrate these types of outbursts are on this board hiding in silence.


Let's probe deeper on this thread :lol:


Admittedly, I have been that guy...

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.
