I'm kind of done with this topic as the comments are getting reptitive, but you're lying and that bothers me.
#1 - I didn't say jack about "Chatter" on YouTube. Ever. Read my posts. I didn't even know that there were comments posted about videos on YouTube until you mentioned it and I went to look for it. What I said was that there is a lot of chatter online about the Harrison beat down. If you can face the truth, do a search on Google for "harrison francisco super bowl" and you'll see plenty of "Chatter" about this. I won't offer up a number or false stats - its pretty obvious if you take 30 seconds to look that people were upset about his actions.
#2 - I only mentioned Youtube in reference to actual video of what happened. There are dozens of videos of Harrison going berserk on Francisco. You keep talking about how "chippy" the game and that there were "Scrubs" all over, yet there appear to be no videos of any other brawls or anyone running over your place holder. You compared that play to Harrison's actions - if it was an intentional attack on another player remotely similar to what Harrison did, then why are there no videos of it or articles about it? After all, you keep talking about what a big play it was - it should be very easy for you to back that up if true.
#3 - Where did I say that Matt_Fury is full of ****? I can't believe that you're trying to make it look like I'm refuting him, when in fact he was refuting you. Here's his quote since your memory seems to be lacking:
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'm not going to speak for someone else like you will, but I took that to mean that he didn't think it was an intentional beat down similar to Harrison's. The question is quite obviously not about whether the play happened, but whether or not it's a fair counter point to what Harrison did. I say it was not and seems pretty clear that Matt_Fury felt the same way. And trying to say that you were having a seperate conversation with Matt is weak. His comment refuted your reply to my post, so it's all one big happy conversation. If you want to have a private conversation, don't post in a forum
. "Matt" said something similar to IFETT in a conversation a week ago and I find that arguement to be plain dumb. No one here has any more or less right to comment on a post than anyone else.
#4 - Can we please hear more about how you coach kids? Serioiusly, I know this is your fall back position to anything sports related, but it's really not relevant. Would you tell your kids that what Harrision did was okay? If so, you should quit your job ASAP. I still can't believe you're defending this guy, especially by saying maybe someone wronged him, so he's getting them back
. Is that the leadership
and conduct you're teaching your kids? God, I hope not.
#5 - You can't seem to escape the notion that I'm a bitter Cardinals fan bitching that they should have won the game if not for the refs. How many different ways do I need to tell you that I'm not a Cardinals fan and that I'm not saying the game should have gone to the Cardinals? I've very clearly said that I think Harrison should have been thrown out for his actions and that the Warner "fumble" at the end of the game should have been reviewed. If that happens and the outcome is the same, then I'm fine with the Steelers winning.
Sure, the Cardinals could have done more to win the game. I thought the Holmes TD near the end was legit and it was silly that three Cardinals were right in front of him watching him make the catch, especially since the play before was pretty much the same thing. But if you don't see the impact that certain calls have on the game, then you're blind. Everyone here seems to agree that it was a close game with a lot of close calls. I believe the majority of close calls went to the Steelers. Any one of those could have easily gone in the Cardinals favor, so you have to admit that its at least possible that Arizona would have won if one of those calls went the other way. Its pretty simple logic then that one different close call decision by the refs might have changed the outcome of this game. They are obviously not the only factor in a game, but yes, the decisions made on close calls by refs are a big part of why one team wins and another loses, as was the case here.
We obviously just don't see eye to eye on football. If my Packers were in this situation I would be elated that they were the new SB champs just like you are with, but if AJ Hawk had pulled the stunt that Harrison pulled, I'd be in full support of dropping him from the team no matter how good he is. It's a violent enough sport without guys who can't control their aggression beating up on someone who's on the ground and clearly not fighting back.
Anyway, I'm going to follow the advice from my previous post and move on until we can find something else football related to argue about.
