    I say blow the other teams out and then you don't have to worry about the calls or overcoming anything!.......lol
    Kudos for having a position consistant with the one most Steeler fans had in regards to the Super Bowl. Otherwise, the Steeler fans are sounding a bit inconsistant in their standards for how teams should deal with close calls by the refs...

    The calls didn't cost the Steelers the game. The Steelers playing sloppy and having no clue on how to cover Crumpler did them in. But there should have a call on Davis for hitting Ben. Plus everytime I watch highlights of Washington at the end of that game. The more ticky tack that call looks. But its a bunch of **** why Mr. Rooney was fined and a that Hines, Santonio and Nate were fined.

    The new commish already sucks *** in my mind.

    With Dan on the Board, I'm sure this isn't the end of this

    That "celebrating" crap really pisses me off. A game penalty and a fine??? C'mon peeps, lighten up already. Emotions run so high ... what the heck is so wrong with celebrating a TD? I say give 'em 5 seconds to dance ... if they run over, slap a 5 yard penalty on 'em and be done. Geez.
    And as for the fine on Rooney and not a word about Davis' illegal hit? Pure and utter discrimination. BAH
