Ben got injured on the same type of hit against Baltimore and it wasn't called.  It was a good call.

Not that I give a shit, because we are the world fucking champions, but the roughing penalty called on the hit on Ben that looked ticky-tack is actually the correct call.

I have no doubt that it was correct according to the rules.  I say ticky-tack because I think the majority of roughing penalties are bush league.  The entire rule has become overblown.  Still, by rule and in line with the way that's been called all year, it was probably the correct call.

I agree, Preach. I dislike a lot of the recent rules changes. In particular, I hate the anti-celebration penalties. Have these rules-makers ever played the game?

That anti-celebration rules are the best rules in the book.

One thing I liked about the SB was guys weren't jumping up pounding their chests and barking at a guy they tackled with the help of 2 other guys.  I was dissapointed with the TD celeb.  If that was called as a penalty, The cards start that drive at midfield or in Steeler territory.

I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

I used to hate the celebrations, and I still don't like Chad Johnson and TO "Bojanglin' " (Jason Whitlock) in the end zone.  But SA's celebration was pretty tame by comparison.  And really, it just makes those guys look like idiots when they lose.  If they want to make fools out of themselves, then let 'em.

I agree with you about the tackle celebrations, especially by ST players.
