The Blind Wearing Stripes

NFL says Super Bowl 'properly officiated' - Super Bowl - "Two days after the Steelers beat the Seahawks 21-10 in the NFL title game, the league said Tuesday that the game was "properly officiated."
"Including, as in most NFL games, some tight plays that produced disagreement about the calls made by the officials," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement."

Look, officials were not under fire simply for their calls at the Super Bowl. Fans had already lost faith in them earlier in the year. Aiello standing by his refs may be how to handle the public, but it seems dumb to support what were clearly bad calls week after week. They should just admit it and look into the best ways to handle the problem. I want to watch next season knowing that something has changed in this sport I love so that the best team on the field that day wins that game.
