and there is only one game in which I was convinced there was tampering.  It was the gift superbowl win for the Steelers over the Seahawks



That is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen written on the Internet.

Which is saying a lot.

As evidenced by some of the comments here, the success of the Steelers breeds a lot of contempt.

Well its nice to see you get your info from Wikipedia. Very reliable source


How about this to turn the tables a little.

Bill Leavy, the referee at Super Bowl XL, apologized to the Seahawks last week for mistakes that helped the Steelers.

But Mike Pereira, the former head of officiating who was Leavy’s boss at the time, insists that Leavy isn’t the reason the Steelers won the Super Bowl.

“Did Leavy’s calls determine the winner of Super Bowl XL? Absolutely not!” Pereira writes at FoxSports.com. “In truth, there were missed calls that went against both teams. Let’s all put aside our allegiances and go back four years and look at the game objectively. If we do, we will see that the Seahawks did not play well
