I imagine in that case, it was more retaliatory. The complaint came from The Association for Women in Sports Media, and Marinelli has had a good little back-and-forth going on with the media in general lately anyway. Just being in the media, they were probably pissed at him already, and it gave them a chance to push back on him.

It's even gayer that next year they're playing the Pro Bowl in that off week. I don't care about the Pro Bowl now and won't care about it then.

They should instead have a big shouting contest. I'd watch Jim Mora and Denny Green go at it.

So there was an ad for the GI Joe movie just before the Super Bowl. Looks like Cobra's up to their nefarious non-sensical ways, doing things like toppling the Eiffel Tower with some sort of fungus.

the federer coverage ended just before pittsburg ran back that turnover. looks like that was probably the end of the game. the cardinals can't get anything going.

Yeah, agreed. I still can't help but wonder what the Eagles would have done against the Steelers. :jay:

holy fuck pittsburg handed arizona that game on a platter, and arizona's defense fucking blew it. glad i didn't put any money on that shit.

great second half, though. nice to see a couple of superbowls that don't suck.

Why, why, why did Arizona wait until the fourth quarter to start throwing to Larry Fitz? Two TD's in the fourth for him... maybe they should have started throwing it to him earlier!

And I cannot believe that last fumble wasn't reviewed. That could have very easily been overturned.

I'm normally not one to blame officials for a game loss, but that non-review of the "fumble" at the end (his arm looked like it was going forward to me), a couple other really questionable calls against Arizona that stood, plus the fact that they had to challenge to get two calls overturned...there's been bad officiating all season, and there was definitely some bad officiating in that game and it all seemed to be against Arizona. Good teams find ways to rise above things like that though, and they nearly did, so I'm not using that as an excuse, but if any Cardinal fan said they were dicked over by officials, I really couldn't fault them for thinking that.

I was thinking the same thing... both Steelers SB's (in the last few years) are marked with controversy.

Even if they didn't overturn it, at least review it. I think saying that's a review worthy play is an understatement. Apparently the officials (the ones in the booth that are supposed to buzz the guys on the field within the last two mins) didn't think so.

They were saying that the booth officials looked at it and said it was a fumble and didn't bother getting the field refs to look at it. Which is ridiculous...the last play of a close thrilling game...have them take a look at it! Not to say Arizona would have won; they still had to face some long odds to get the touchdown. But at least have the refs look it over to be sure.

Especially since they didn't call that 15 yard celebration penalty on Santonio Holmes for the preceding TD.
