Default officiating in super bowl?

Granted, it turned out to be an exciting game, but, I thought the officiating was about as one sided as you could get.

meaning, no calls generally let the Raven's thuggery continue, just as they pulled off in their other post season games.

I saw one non-call on the 49ers and about 10 non calls on the Ravens.

Thoughts?

When 49er fans know a little of how we feel with that last non PI call in the end zone on Williams or whoever it was mugging Crabtree.. Would have won the game for them had he not been held...

If the call was made, as it should have been, it would have given the Niners first and goal at the 1. Depending on how many plays it took to score from there, assuming they did score, it would have left the Ravens far less than two minutes to drive for a FG. The score would have been 35-34 Niners at that point if they went for 2 and failed, 37-34 if they got the 2 point conversion.

Uncatchable ball anyways. It landed out of bounds so it wouldnt have won the game for them but a penalty would have put them at the 1.

Just some bad playcalling by SF. 3 passes to Crabtree? Not one read option when they ran for 186 yards on them.
Anyways im not convinced it was a penalty. Glad they let the players play more. I get tired of seeing piddley PI calls all year long.

My thoughts are that the games are fixed.
I was blasted when i said it before..Once Lewis announced his retirement, refs made sure he wins the SB.
For instance..4TH AND 29...it was never converted..it was yard short.

I'm with you on the fix being in, but I'm not sure it was a complete fix, just a ref thing. How many judgement calls went against the ravens? Also, how many holding calls did the ravens o-line get called for all playoffs? The 3 penalties the ravens were called for were roughing the passer (have to show we care about player safety) running into the kicker (safety issue again, and it could have been a 15 yarder) and unnecisary(sp?) roughness that was offset.

It's not scripted, but it is most definitely favoring the ravens.

I never said the complete game is fixed..it's just that all of a sudden Ravens became most disciplined team in NFL once Ray announced his retirement.
Wish we had a player like him in our team that can influence ref's.

4th and 29 was a regular season game. Before Lewis announced his retirement.

The Elway who lost three super bowls? The one who put up 7 points against the Bills in the 1991 AFC Championship game? Or the one with TD in the backfield?

You can't win them all, but idiots are happy to buy into post hoc narratives.

It was terrible. I think college sports will see in an increase in popularity over the next decade or so as more and more people shun $100-$1000 seats, $100 million contracts, and side shows like Ray Lewis, strikes, and what sure seems like crooked officiating.

With that being said one of the greatest sporting events is about to unfold. March Madness. It's hard to beat the pure competitive nature of College Basketball.

Ain't that right Raenos?

I agree, and not just because of that ridiculous non-call in the EZ that should've given the 49ers a first down at the 2 1/2.

The problem isn't that it was consistently bad, it's that it was completely inconsistent altogether.

A questionable PI here, no holding calls when both teams had jerseys stretched out so far I'm surprised they didn't just tear apart.

I understand the premise that the audience wants the refs to let them play when it reaches this level of the play-offs. Problem is, no-one seemed to respect the rules in this game, and the refs let it happen.

Jimmy Smith got away with murder in the endzone at the end of the game. That being said, March Madness is boring.
