Yeah, after the refs jobbed the 'Hawks not once, not twice, but three times.

but hey, just a game, enjoy your parade, and sametime different place next year...with better refs.

Oh come on man... Blaming the refs is about as low as you can go. The Steelers outplayed the Hawks, and out thought them. Bottom line is they wanted the win more. The offensive pass interference on the first touchdown was offensive interference. Ben did get that ball across the goal line for their first touchdown, or at least was close enough that it couldn't be overturned. Seattle's field goal kicker choked.... 3 times? In a friggin' dome for Christ's sake.

Seattles two minute offense was atrocious. Seattle walked into that game expecting to win and got their arrogant asses handed to them on a platter.

Remember two, three years ago? Green Bay Wisconsin? Overtime playoff game? "We'll take the ball and we are going to win!" Haha... what an arrogant douche.

I'll bet anything that Seattle got a huge confidence boost when they found out the didn't have to play Payton Manning on the high powered Colts. They payed a hefty price for overlooking the Pittsburgh Steelers man.

QUit crying about the refs and admit that what the Steelers did was pretty damn unbelievable. Oh and, Packers win it all next year.

Nope sorry not happening. Admittedly, the Seahawks missed some opportunities, no doubt about it. That interference call in the endzone should have been a noncall.

Oh well, next year will be better. GreenBay? not a chance. You heard it here first, Seattle versus Denver. Provided of course, Seattle resigns Steve Hutchinson, and Shaun Alexander, if not it might be 30 years before we go again.

Now I'm going back to crying...because...life is...sooo...unfair (sobbing inconsolibly).

I'll borrow this and post it here for ya seagull.

The National Football Leauge Rulebook states

Pass Interference
1. There shall be no interference with a forward pass thrown from behind the line. The restriction for the passing team starts with the snap. The restriction on the defensive team starts when the ball leaves the passer’s hand. Both restrictions end when the ball is touched by anyone.

2. The penalty for defensive pass interference is an automatic first down at the spot of the foul. If interference is in the end zone, it is first down for the offense on the defense’s 1-yard line. If previous spot was inside the defense’s 1-yard line, penalty is half the distance to the goal line.

3. The penalty for offensive pass interference is 10 yards from the previous spot.

4. It is pass interference by either team when any player movement beyond the line of scrimmage significantly hinders the progress of an eligible player of such player’s opportunity to catch the ball. Offensive pass interference rules apply from the time the ball is snapped until the ball is touched. Defensive pass interference rules apply from the time the ball is thrown until the ball is touched.

Actions that constitute defensive pass interference include but are not limited to:

(a) Contact by a defender who is not playing the ball and such contact restricts the receiver’s opportunity to make the catch.

(b) Playing through the back of a receiver in an attempt to make a play on the ball.

(c) Grabbing a receiver’s arm(s) in such a manner that restricts his opportunity to catch a pass.

(d) Extending an arm across the body of a receiver thus restricting his ability to catch a pass, regardless of whether the defender is playing the ball.

(e) Cutting off the path of a receiver by making contact with him without playing the ball.

(f) Hooking a receiver in an attempt to get to the ball in such a manner that it causes the receiver’s body to turn prior to the ball arriving.

Actions that do not constitute pass interference include but are not limited to:

(a) Incidental contact by a defender’s hands, arms, or body when both players are competing for the ball, or neither player is looking for the ball. If there is any question whether contact is incidental, the ruling shall be no interference.

(b) Inadvertent tangling of feet when both players are playing the ball or neither player is playing the ball.

(c) Contact that would normally be considered pass interference, but the pass is clearly uncatchable by the involved players.

(d) Laying a hand on a receiver that does not restrict the receiver in an attempt to make a play on the ball.

(e) Contact by a defender who has gained position on a receiver in an attempt to catch the ball.

Actions that constitute offensive pass interference include but are not limited to:

(a) Blocking downfield by an offensive player prior to the ball being touched.

(b) Initiating contact with a defender by shoving or pushing off thus creating a separation in an attempt to catch a pass.

(c) Driving through a defender who has established a position on the field.

Actions that do not constitute offensive pass interference include but are not limited to:

(a) Incidental contact by a receiver’s hands, arms, or body when both players are competing for the ball or neither player is looking for the ball.

(b) Inadvertent touching of feet when both players are playing the ball or neither player is playing the ball.

(c) Contact that would normally be considered pass interference, but the ball is clearly uncatchable by involved players.

Note 1: If there is any question whether player contact is incidental, the ruling should be no interference.

Note 2: Defensive players have as much right to the path of the ball as eligible offensive players.

Note 3: Pass interference for both teams ends when the pass is touched.

Note 4: There can be no pass interference at or behind the line of scrimmage, but defensive actions such as tackling a receiver can still result in a 5-yard penalty for defensive holding, if accepted.

Note 5: Whenever a team presents an apparent punting formation, defensive pass interference is not to be called for action on the end man on the line of scrimmage, or an eligible receiver behind the line of scrimmage who is aligned or in motion more than one yard outside the end man on the line. Defensive holding, such as tackling a receiver, still can be called and result in a 5-yard penalty and automatic first down from the previous spot, if accepted. Offensive pass interference rules still apply.

The part I highlighted is the one you should focus on. I saw the defender fall one way and the reciever go the other. He stiff armed him in the endzone to create separation. You can argue all you want but Seattle still could have won that game. If they tried harder.

As for Green Bay... I was joking. I know they have some rebuilding to do.

You play "soccer" and we play "football". The reason you play "soccer" is because there's no action at all. Just a bunch of dudes running back and forth. Not real exciting!! I don't care how many billion people watch "soccer". That tells me there's a billion people that don't know any better.

When our guys get hurt it's because some guy cracked them upside the head for being man enough to go over the middle, not because some little girl tripped them. "Wankball"???? Tripping is for wankers.


We have Montana, Marino, Brown, Payton, Favre, Taylor, Rice. My list can go on and on. Who you got? Pele? Beckham? Beckham couldn't survive one game in the NFL unless he was a placekicker or punter.

Peace


Why do you call your sport "football" when all you do is hold it?
We call it Footbal for the right reasons,i.e when use are feet to kick the ball.

Football was call football because the foot entered in contact with the ball
SO it's foot-ball .

But it's so hard for them to understand:bash:
And of course the art of it they will never understand it.
It has so many tactics formations deffense, atack, middel field.
Who can control the ball with his feet is a magician, and the feeling in the stadium crowd when a goal is scored.
But for them a goal is just passing a line
hilaryus
Wow there is so many ways in the real football a goal can look tastey.
Put it up there in the top corner of the goal and your a star.
But how about just crossing the line?

Punting is the same as kicking only with a bit more power.

Yes, thanks. I can say the same and I very quickly came to the conclusion that Juank-ball is SHEEEEEEITE!

I don't really see how saying you have watched both football and Juank- ball makes you the better man in this?

It's the same as saying, I have a pair of bollocks. Can you say the same?.

Whos being ignorant? Check out the NFL rules. Damn they come down really really hard on abuse don't they?





Hehe... I broke ya, finally. Resorting to petty name calling. So low. I am a lot of things, but not a snob. Arrogant, chauvinistic, shallow, and manipulative to name a few. Can I call you small minded? I knew if I played the role of arrogant American it would crack you... And sure enough you fell for it hook line and sinker.


[edit on 6-2-2006 by LostSailor]


Broke me? broke me? bwahahahahaha! thats a guddun honestly. Guess thats your arrogant side showing through.
Sure, you can call me small minded, as long I can say 'straight back at ya'
Suppose it never occured to you that I may be baiting you just as you were to me?
