    Talk about officials that should be investigated.

    First off they called 13 Steeler Penalties to 2 on the other guys. Then they did not allow a touchdown with no time left that was actually a touchdown by Troy Palamolou (SP?). I have no do in this fight as I am a Packers fan but with the score 11-10 and the Touchdown would have gave the Steelers enough to cover. Not to mention all the penalties they kept calling on the Steelers this might have some gambling aspects to it. I also don't bet so I really don't care. Just find it interesting.

    I guess something like $56 million changed hands because of that non touchdown call...

    I wonder if one team was playing a cleaner game then the other?

    Sure they should look into it and make sure that those were the right calls, but it is next to impossible for a ref crew to favor a team to the extent your talking without most the calls being accurate.

    Re: Talk about officials that should be investigated.

    I'm baffled by the last call.

    On the other hand, the refs neglected to call delay of game on the Steelers at least three times. Twice it wasn't even close and the third time it was maybe a half second beyond zero. Two of those non-calls went for Steeler first downs and helped sustain drives. They missed facemask calls and several pass interferance calls. The pass interference they called on the Steelers in the first quarter that kept the Charges scoring drive alive was a bad call as well.

    They were bad officials, but they didn't give an advantage to either team.

    I am not talking about favoring 1 team to win. Just by how much.

    The last call was a mess and should have been a touchdown, but it was kind of cool that it ended 11-10 considering there had been no other game in NFL history to end at that score.

    Guess what, millions would have changed hands if they had called the touchdown and those that lost money would have been just as upset. That's the thing with gambling, there are winners and losers, it is not a game where you can have just winners.

    I turned off the t.v. before they sorted out the final call. Sounds like they messed it up. I'd be ****** if I had money on the game.

    The last call was correct, there was an illegal forward pass.

    True, but a blown call completely reversed the gambling payouts on that game...that doesn't happen that often. I had money on Pitt to cover but got hosed out of it by a blown call.
