NFL Acknowledges Morelli's Fuckup  
That's right, BITCH.

Joey Porter, #55 for the Steelers: "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."

lol! Thank goodness they didn't!

Also, our officiant is a geek- of the computer programming Trekkie variety. How freaking sweet is that?

Wow, I wasn't really expecting the NFL to admit that. From what I've gathered, this stuff is usually looked over, despite the fuming of the fans.

Then again, that ref did make some batshit-insane calls.

Heh! I dare say this tops that one Thanksgiving game the Steelers played against the Lions, where it went into overtime and the ref completely ignored Bettis' call at the coin toss.

Rough paraphrasing of what happened:

Ref> Pittsburgh will call it in the air. ::flips coin::
Bettis> Heads.
Ref> The call was tails-
Bettis> Heads! I said heads!
Ref> Heads it is. Detroit has won the toss...
Bettis> WTF?!

Steelers ended up losing that one since the Lions started with possession in OT. =\ But I'm pretty sure that was another time that the League admitted to that being totally asshatted officiating.
