    that was a completely bogus call by the referee as far as I'm concerned. The commentators over here (not sure if they are the same ) said they hadn't heard that called in a long time.
    Commentators also said looking at the replay they didn't really see anything.

    That call was absolutely ridiculous. I could not believe it.

    I also HATE HATE HATE the call when a defensive guy "draws" a false start. As far as I am concerned, the defense can do whatever the fuck they want ... the offense needs to not fucking move until the ball is snapped. Not that tough really.

    Kind of how I feel , they say the defense can move as long as it is a normal defensive player move , that leaves way to much grey area for the referee to decide wether to call it or not.

    I agree with everyone. What the hell are normal defensive moves and what the hell are considered illegal? What if the whole defense lines up and dances to grease lightning? Those are not normal defensive moves, but it's also not gonna draw a false starts. Refs wanted some Steeler McSugarnuts in the shower room. Case close.
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.

    I hate to say it, and rarely do, but that game had " buying the refs" written
    all over it...3rd and 3 at a very important part of the game and they came up with that crap....If it smells like SH IT, it usually is SH IT !


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    We did make mistakes, but the I fully believe the Vikings would have won this game without if the refs called a fair game.
    Funny it seems like it is always the Steelers and them being the NFL's golden child who can do no wrong.
    It used to be that way with Dallas and the 49ers as well.

    I'm glad i'm not the only one that feels the refs blew some calls , I was worried I was turning into a bitter old man.

    I'm not a big fan of subjective penalties.
    Then again, they could call offensive holding on almost every play too.

    They call it when it's blatant and actually impacts how a D player is moving

    Saw Allen hogtied 2 times.. Shoulda been pretty clear calls
