    I didnt sign it. I think there is a difference between poor officiating, and a game being "fixed".

    The Offensive Pass Interference in the endzone was a pretty ticky tack call, but at the same time, he obviously pushed off. You cant let that slide when it results is a touchdown.

    The Big Ben touchdown was so incredibly close that I dont see how you could say there was "indisputable" evidence that he got in.

    The personal foul on the interception return was obviously a poor call. The problem is that unless the call is blatantly wrong, you can always argue that its a judgement call.

    So even though I think the officiating was lacking, I dont think it was intentional. And I dont think it changed the end result of the game. I'll be interested to see how many signatures end up on this thing, though.

    A geographical oddity
    Um....I think that the game was piss poor in terms of officiating as well as rather lacking in terms of quality game play. I think the refs did make a difference in the score, but cannot say how it affected the outcome. Each play has its own effect on the game. That being said, I do believe that there was something shady. Were I a fan of either team, I might care. But, I'm not and I'm over it. The media gave it enough attention, I think the NFL got the hint. I don't think Leavy will be reffing another SB for a long time...

    This petition is cute and a nice way to have organized venting, but that's it (so I guess it really isn't as pointless and silly as I thought it was at first).

    Not signing it, because:

    (1) These petitions accomplish nothing.
    (2) I don't believe the officiating at the Super Bowl was all that bad, aside from the one possible bad call on Hasselbeck when he tackled Ike Taylor.
