seriously, i wrote this about the super bowl. scroll down and check it out:
prediction #1: there will be a very bad pass interference call that will eventually lead to a touchdown.
and prediction #2: another touchdown will be called back due to a phantom holding call.
those two are indisputable.
this following prediction is 50/50: a play will not be overturned on instant replay, even though there's enough conclusive visual evidence to do so.
so, prediction #1 didn't come true unless you're a whiny seahawks fan who thought that the pass interference call on darrell jackson in the end zone was unfair (and that would really be pushing it - no pun intended).
but on #2, the holding call on sean locklear when clark haggans caught a touchdown was definitely a terrible call. absolutely.
and the 50/50 prediction came true on ben roethlisberger's disputed touchdown fall that didn't appear to cross the plane, even though i still think it was too close to overturn. the crime in that, however, was that the line judge changed his call to touchdown.
it's just a shame that in a league blessed with parity and unpredictablility, the one thing you can rely on week in and week out is referee incompetence.
they gotta get that righted.
