I was shocked they didn't review the final play. It seems like every other play was reviewed. Who would have though we'd have to put up with the same 'the refs gave it to us' crap that we did 3 years ago.......

1 - he's right
2 - it shoudl have AT LEAST been reviewed
3 - there WAS a penalty on that play... it didn't matter cuz we took a knee. but, had AZ kept the ball, it could have made a difference. I was calling him stupid when he took it off because that play was too similar to Warner's other play.

Part of it is the "Duke Syndrome." Where everyone thinks calls go our way, and the other team gets shafted, despite reality

The other part of it is I feel like folks have been accustomed to Super Bowl blow outs.

Mike Pereria - NFL VP of Officiating - confimed after the game & on "Mike & Mike" this morning that the replay official took a look at it immediately & confirmed the call on the filed. Just because they didn't take forever (like they normally do) doesn't mean they didn't do it.

You get the feeling that if they had gone the other way that people would be screaming how the NFL is ruining the game because of the micro-managing - you can't win. Crazy people need to stop jumping onto the conspiracy bandwagon.

I don't think Holmes shaking the ball and throwing it in the air is a flag. No way. Its the same as if he put it in the air and waved it around and then spiked it. He didn't use it as a prop like skip douchebag was crying. If you can spike the ball and that is legal, then what holmes did was within the rules in my view.

He was mimicking LeBron's pre-game powder routine. He used the ball in place of the powder container. That technically makes it a prop. So by the letter of the law, its a penalty. But your point if valid. If you can spike it, then this should be legal too.

Regardless, it doesn't matter now. We can go back and watch the game and point out calls they misse don AZ, no one will care. This is the price we pay for not blowing them the hell out.

It will only become that if bored, self-important writers like Bayless make it so. But take heart, they cant - Ben & Santonio took care of that...we've got the highlights & the hardware.

By rule, it's technically a penalty... they were just saying it on First Take...

Different than a spike, he used it as a bottle of power (like lebron) and threw it in the air... cool idea, but, technically, a penalty...

could you imagine the backlash the NFL would receive if they called the Holmes prop penalty?

On second thought.. since the TD was reviewed do we know when Holmes did the celebration? I remember Holmes clutching the ball then being mauled by Steelers...

the prop celebration wasn't shown live.. it was replayed, so he may have been on the sideline when he did it.

Well I'm glad the refs don't throw flags for "intended use" of a football. Sure he could be waving it around like a bottle of powder, or he could just be waving it around. That is stupid in my opinion. Its not like he used it as a pillow or acted like he was drining out of it. Waving the ball around like he did is pretty normal action with the football.

I don't care...flag him for it..we still win.

As for the Santonio TD celebration & helmet incident, my feeling is - & has been - that these things are in the moment of the game (especially the helmet) & worrying about this makes the game less fun. If what Santonio did is a penalty, then don't let them spike it either & Woodley thought he had just sacked the QB & caused a fumble to clinch the Super Bowl, off course he's going to be excited, there's no reason to drag the excitement down by tossing the flag. Jeez, this kind of thing is turning us into lawyers & frankly, that's what sports is supposed to a relief from.

Let's just wait until the NFL says something to see whether or not apologies need to be made - otherwise, enjoy the moment!
