I don't care what this author says, Darrell Jackson planted his hand on the defender's chest and pushed off.  Pass interference, end of story.

My only point of contention here is that the ref didn't call jack **** until the ball had been caught and the defender got in his face to whine.  It was a late call that responded to some player complaining and that's crap. 

The contact was there, minimal or not.  Call what you SEE not what you're told happened.

The best comment of all on Darrell Jackson's OPI call?  I hate to say it, but it was from ESPN's Michael Irvin of Dallas Cowboys fame.  His claim to fame?  The fact that he pushed off more DB's than probably any other receiver in the game.  The man knows that move.  He perfected it.  And he said that Darrell Jackson's OPI call was bunk and that he (Irvin) got away with much worse.  The only reason that penalty got called is because it was (1) in the Super Bowl, i.e. super-scrutinized, and (2) because it happened right in front of an official.  Otherwise the TD would've stood.

Oh, and this is coming from a Giants fan.  I have no vested interest in the game other than being a football fan.

For anyone wondering where Joe Montana was during the whole "former SB MVP" thing before the game:

According to a source familiar with Montana's situation, the former three-time MVP asked that he be guaranteed $100,000 in appearance money during his time at the Super Bowl. The league could not accommodate that request, so Montana declined to be in attendance.

What a dick.

I think anyone who's watched the NFL closely over the last 15 years or so has to be well aware of Joe Montana's absence from the game.  Whether it's some kind of involvement in an organization (either coaching or in the front office), as a commentator on TV, or events like this, Joe Montana has had a very low profile.  A lot of it has to do with money.  Joe Montana thinks he's worth a LOT of money.

Fact is, the guy has been something of a jerk throughout his career and afterward.  Sure he wanted to win, but it's always been all about him.  He's been through several marriages and some ugly divorces, all laced with a lot of rumored infedelity.  He's supposedly a very private guy, but I think there's just too much dirt and he wants to lay low and do his own thing.  In the mix he does appearances and autograph sessions that are very expensive.

Thing is, other NFL players have bowed out of high profile events like this.  When the NFL organized a reunion of the Baltimore Colts and the NY Giants palyers who were involved in the 1958 NFL Championship game (otherwise known as the greatest game ever), Colts QB Johnny Unitas bowed out.  He cited an autograph appearance that was more lucrative and it was unspoken that the NFL didn't want to match that offer.

So strange.  The Legendary Riders wave only shipped a short time ago and I'm already finding the Marvel Legends 12 wave.  Picked up Maestro and Sasquatch so far.

Holy crap do I ever want this figure :o

Now that is pretty cool.  But still that assclown McFarlane won't make more Devils.  Shame on him since his sculpting shop is IN New Jersey.

I've seen them, and now I feel quite justified in saying that these are pieces of crap.   Shame on you Hasbro.

Nice case Jason.  We got the right royal shaft on NFL 11.  Walmart didn't get any in Western Canada :'(  I was able to pick up a McGahee chase at another retailer but my dream of spinning a no helmet Brady into a 12 back didn't come to fruition.

Chases have been few and far between, Brent.  I haven't seen a single chase at retail in months.  The long and short of it is that the buzz on Sports Picks dried up and now McFarlane is trying to get it going again by making the chases tougher to get and by making super chases like the no-helmet Brady.

I used to be something of a completist on the NFL line, but even now I'm being a lot pickier.  I've picked up a grand total of 5 NFL figures this year, and that's including 2 Lawrence Taylor's (one to open, one for potential auto's) 2 Tiki Barber's (one to open, one for potential auto's) and one Kevin Mawae.  I might pick up a couple of others, but the line hasn't been that exciting to me.

Can you say "A variation collectors nightmare?"

Seriously, if the variation collectors really are going to try to complete these sets, what else is going to be left for everyone else?  Either that, or Hasbro is going to bankrupt some people.
