The 2008 season is so last week.
I don't think it was an equivalent thing Jesse. Not saying it should not have been a penalty, but I think forward momentum had a lot to do with him hitting the ball holder.
I thought it was a pretty decent trailer. Not a Trekkie by no means, but I'm looking forward to the movie.
I agree on the Roethlisberger call Matt, and like I said I think the whole Roughing the Passer penalty is wishy washy. The Steelers got burned all season long on those penalties, and I'd say 75% of them were pure bull**** where a passer got tapped, didn't fall or barely moved, and there was a huge penalty for it. I think it's a bad rule that needs some looking at and changing.
The roughing the place holder though, the guy didn't make an effort to stop, at all. Momentum had 0 to do with it when he didn't make any effort and was well away from the ball being kicked. That, is just unsportsmanlike play... I went to Youtube to see what all the commotion was about. THere was lone post of the Harrison bitch slap, and 50% of the people said he was a jerk, and 50% of the people said the guy he was slapping was chop blocking him and lifted his arm up into his crotch at the 1:09 mark (equally dickhole move, I think it was hard to tell that though but his arm did go up some). Few, if anyone, said he actually deserved to get thrown out. Even people who felt it was bad, didn't say he needed thrown out. Hardly a "big stink" was being made... Harrison got his penalty, it got assessed but thanks to the awesome special teams that Arizona sent down field they negated it basically. To me, the play was 100% spot-on to what it needed to be, just like the rest of the game.
I still say the roughing the holder call was just as bad, but it didn't deserve anyone being thrown out, not at all. It deserved the penalty it got though, just like Harrison's. The roughing the holder call though was made worse not by the fact he made contact, but by the fact he pushed the guy down into the ground as he went over him without making any effort to stop. That's where it became a blatant foul and pretty classless move.
As far as things happening "all ove rthe field", even Michaels and Madden said, "the game's getting very chippy"... Listen to your own Youtube example Justin, hah! They even acknowledged that this was getting out of hand, that's why they said that. Whatever though dude, I somehow get the sneaking suspicion that you would've made this argument even if the game was called beautifully 100% and there wasn't a gripe on the field, so don't worry, I'm not taking much serious here.
GO PATRIOTS VS. VIKINGS SUPER BOWL NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!
First I want to say I didn't care who won the Super Bowl. I was glad it was a good game.
Second..... THE STEELERS WON THE GAME AND ARE THE CHAMPIONS.
The refs didn't blow it for the Cardinals. The Cardinals didn't get a raw deal. All the touchdowns were touchdowns. People's feet were down, Harrison was in, whether Harrison is cheap or not didn't affect the game, the Warnere fumbles/incomplete passes were too close to say they were wrong either way.
