The NFL officially rescinded (not that it matters) that Interception call the refs said was an incompletion instead. So that's at least vindication and Porter won't get fined for saying what he did in the locker room about the reffing of that game.
I'm not a fan of complaining about officiating, but the weekend was bad overall. In the Steelers Colts game there was a pass interference call against I think Randle El that wasn't called but was right in front of an official, and he was staring at them plainly in the replay, and just opted not to call it... Clear as day that he just made a decision to skip that. There were facemasks on both teams (it seemed) that weren't called. And of course there's the "let's make up our own rules" call on Pollamallu for his interception. Just total bull****... Oh and then there's the "false start, no wait, offsides... no, wait, nothing, nevermind" call too... The announcers said it was Fannaca, I think it was offsides though and Fannaca didn't move enough for a call against him... I dunno. What a mess.
I'm glad to hear more Steelers fans are emerging.
Anyway, here's something I thought was sad during the Colts game... They were trying a "Terrible Towel" thing to support their team... I mean, granted the Steelers don't have a patent on waving a towel but it seems lame to me to copy something that was started long ago here and wasn't done by other teams till just recently. Just a little aside I had.
Oh, and POrter can talk allt he **** he wants if he's gonna produce.
He's a good player, and our only one that actually trash talks. I don't know why, it fires him up I guess, but it's not a Steelers thing generally... The organization generally stays quiet but Porter likes the trash talk, so more power to him I guess. A lot don't care for that I know, but he doesn't seem to pull others into it... And he did back it up. Lots of hard sacks by Porter in that game.
