While I'm definitely not blaming officiating for the loss, I do pay closer attention to it, just to have ammo prepared in case fans of other teams try to play the "ref" card since they seem to think that there is a big secret conspiracy to give the Steelers every game...
I took note of a few plays....just wondered if anybody else noticed these...

1. 1st Qtr, 11:13 - Nelson pushes off, but it was Incomplete and GB had to punt, making this irrelevant except for that he got away with it.
2. 1st Qtr,  7:24  - (replay afterward) - A blatant hold and "throw down" by GB TE Crabtree (Aikman even commented on it), Held him blatantly with both hands and threw him down.
3. 1st Qtr,  3:59  - On Nelson's TD, this was another push off.  Pushed off while the ball was in the air.
4. 2nd Qtr,  5:14 - Horse collar tackle on Mendenhall, by LB Bishop, not called.

Personally, I am to the point when we are in the SB that I don't want these things to be called on the other team because it seems like other teams' fans take every "phantom Holding call on an irrelevant play" and attribute it to our wins....but these are examples that we are NOT given special treatment.

Mundy phantom block in the back on KO return that set up Ben's lovely touchdown pass to Nick Collins.

Add a phantom block in the back on Kemo.

Overall, this was not a poorly-officiated game IMO.  We got a break on a facemask penalty.  I thought they were nit-picking crap on the Stillers in the first half but overall let the teams play.

Yea wasn't sure if I was just straight inebriated, or did Kemo really just flat miss his attempted block in the back?

Refs came out favoring the Packers, but not a remarkably poor job either.

Looked like he started to hit him but pulled back and just flopped.  The guy just fell down and out comes the flag.
