    Re: Porter on refs: 'I felt they were cheating us'

    The refs were trying to give the game to Indy.

    I am glad the better team won.

    Re: Porter on refs: 'I felt they were cheating us'

    I agree that the refs have been terrible both ways, but the non pass-interference call against McFadden in the endzone cost the Colts a TD, so it isn't like they were specifically anti-Steelers.

    Well least we know some crews who shouldn't be officiating at the Superbowl.
    Feel better seeing other teams get iffy calls - maybe make some Vikes fans feel less paranoid about our games !
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    NFL admits the wrong call was made on T. Polamaulu INT

    NEW YORK -- The NFL said the referee made a mistake: Troy Polamalu caught the ball.

    The league acknowledged Monday that referee Pete Morelli erred when he overturned on replay Polamalu's interception of a Peyton Manning pass Sunday in the playoff game between Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.

    Mike Pereira, the league's vice president of officiating, said in a statement that Morelli should have upheld the call, made with 5:26 left in Pittsburgh's win over the Colts.

    After the reversal, the Colts went on to score a touchdown and a 2-point conversion, cutting the Steelers' 21-10 lead to 21-18. That led to a wild final few minutes and Pittsburgh clinched its win only when the Colts' Mike Vanderjagt missed a 46-yard field-goal attempt.

    On the play, Polamalu made a diving catch of Manning's pass, tumbled with it in his hands and got up to run. When he did, he fumbled the ball, then recovered. Colts coach Tony Dungy challenged and Morelli ruled Polamalu had not completed the catch.

    About a dozen TV and scoreboard replays indicated otherwise. Had the call stood, the Steelers would have had the ball at their own 48 with an 11-point lead.

    "The definition of a catch -- or in this case an interception -- states that in the process of making a catch a player must maintain possession of the ball after he contacts the ground," Pereira said.

    "The initial call on the field was that Troy Polamalu intercepted the pass because he maintained possession of the ball after hitting the ground. The replay showed that Polamalu had rolled over and was rising to his feet when the ball came loose. He maintained possession long enough to establish a catch. Therefore, the replay review should have upheld the call on the field that it was a catch and fumble.

    "The rule regarding the performing of an act common to the game applies when there is contact with a defensive player and the ball comes loose, which did not happen here."

    The NFL almost never makes public the result of its reviews, although it did three years ago, when Pereira said officials should have called pass interference against San Francisco on the final play of a wild-card game with the New York Giants. The correct call would have given New York a second chance to kick a game-winning field goal in a 39-38 loss.

    After the game, Pittsburgh linebacker Joey Porter said of the ruling:

    "I know they wanted Indy to win this game; the whole world loves Peyton Manning. But come on, man, don't take the game away from us like that."

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello had no comment on Porter's statement.

    In the past, players who have made such statements have been subject to fines.

    The NFL said that the refs made a bad call. Polamalu made the interception. It's on espn.com
