    Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    both ways. Carinals got the worst end of it. I am a Packers fan so I had no dog in this fight.

    Was glad to see Hartwig say West Des Moines Valley at the begining.

    Warner did a great job.

    Re: Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    Yes, yes it was.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    3 years ago, Seattle and Pittsburgh. Seattle got jobbed even worse than Arizona just did. All in the name of giving the Steelers another SB win.

    Looks like we had the same thought.

    Re: Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    Yea, I remember the Seahawks getting jobbed in their game with the steelers a few years ago. They both rank pretty high on the 'hosed-by-officials" category.

    Re: Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    Its pretty sad they didn't even review that last play. Also pretty sad that there were all those challenges and almost all of them were won.

    Re: Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    It's crazy that Harwig got called for holding for that safety. it almost looked like he got bulled rushed over.

    Also Arizona had to challenge so many calls they ran out of flags. Kurt Warners arm was going forward on that last call.

    Also how did that guy for the steelers not get kicked out of the game. If the ref saw the play he saw what he did.

    Re: Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    Harrison should have been ejected, as Madden said. Refs had no guts.

    Re: Worst officiating ever in a Super Bowl.

    The fact that Arizona had to challenge 2 calls and get both of them right is enough to prove that the refs sucked.

    Hartwig pulled the guy on top of him. Classic case of holding. That was a good call, but the refs were horrible for the most part.

    In the safety, he pulled the guy over him. In the last 2 minutes, I believe replays must come from the booth, so that wasn't on Arizona, it was on the officials. On the last thing you mentioned, you are totally right.

    We have a review system in pro football, that play should've been reviewed! I want to talk to the Athletic Director!

    Seriously though, that was total BS, I can't believe they called that a fumble in the first place, and then didn't review it.

    They reviewed it...the review was just done faster than an 18-year old in a brothel.
