The 40th Superbowl which was either:
~ a NFL championship game which the refs were Steelers fans, robbing the Seahawks of the Superbowl title.
~ a NFL championship game which some Steeler fan/fans with money got to the ref.
~ a NFL championship game which Vegas stood to loose too much money if the Seahawks won, so they got to the refs to fix the game in favor of the Steelers. Vegas came out with record income on this Superbowl.
~ a NFL championship game which the people in charge of the NFL, fixed the game with: picking the Steelers as a favorite even though the Steelers were not conference champs; having the media celebrate the Steelers for two weeks before the game; celebrating 3 to 4 Steelers retired players before the game and not celebrating any retired Seahawk players; and then when all else failed had the refs make bad calls on the Seahawks, costing them the game.
1. The Seahawks should be Superbowl XL Champs.
2. Steelers should not be wearing the Superbowl XL ring.
3. Steeler fans are stupid if they think they have the right to celebrate the outcome of Superbowl XL.
4. Q: Why are the Steelers called the Steelers? A: Because they got the refs to steel them Superbowl XL.
Ruined by Refs.
Superbowl XL was ruined by the refs.
a well played game that the Seahawks should have won. but the Refs messed it all up, they had some of the worst calls ever, i personal thing the refs were payed off by the Steelers and the Seahawks should have won.
Person 1: hey did you see superbowl XL
person 2: oh, you mean the one where the Steelers cheated
person 1: yea that one
Person 2: man the refs should learn how to call a game
person 1: yea for real
person 2: Its doesnt matter though the whole world knows the Sehawks are better then the Steelers
a joke. being robbed. the ref's should have been wearing black and yellow. what a scam, the ref's were bought out. there is no way that Ben Worthlessburgrg scored...
i was watvhing the seahawks kick ass in superbowl XL until the ref's started playing for the steelers, what a joke
I love it when Steeler's fans say Super Bowl XL was not fixed. Check out these stats:
Ben Roethlisberger: 9/21 (42%) 123 yards 0 touchdowns 2 interceptions 22 passer rating
Roethlisberger holds the title of having the absolute worst quarterback performance in Super Bowl history. He was even worse than Terry Bradshaw (who was never that good, despite what the media says) in his performance against the LA Rams in Super Bowl XIV. Don't even mention the phantom touchdown he didn't get. He even admitted on national television that he did not get that touchdown.
Willie Parker: 10 carries/93 yards.
On the surface, this is good. But one of his carries was a 75 yard touchdown, so if we take that away, his stats would've been 18 yards on 9 carries, or 2 yards a carry, which is extremely shitty.
Jerome Bettis: 14 carries, 43 yards
I've always hated that overrated fat fuck, and it was a pleasure seeing the Seahawks defense stuff his fatass. He only managed 3 yards a carry. It's also important to mention that Detroit, his home town, hosted Super Bowl XL, and he retired after finally getting his long awaited Super Bowl ring. Is anyone finding this a little coincidental?
The only player on the entire Steeler's team that played well was Hines Ward (123 yards, 5 receptions). Even if the Seahawks won, he would still deserve the MVP (and I fucking hate Hines Ward).
Take away the refs (one of them being a Pittsburgh native), the Seahawks would've destroyed the Steelers...
One of the greatest Superbowls (even better than the one in '82) that will ever occur in any city, one of the sole reasons being it's gonna be in ***DETROIT*** and hype as hell! Yeah, we gotz a bunch of celebrities like DIDDY coming down...what now!?!
"Hey where was the superbowl XL this year?"
"Oh, it was in Detroit and that shit was so fun and hype as HELL! One of the best Superbowls ever!"
