    Lots of sigs on both petitions.
    Hope the NFL will fix the problem.

      Never seen anything like it. It's official. Pittsburg will become the first team to have their title made unrecognized and Seattle to become the first unofficial NFL Champion

      Pretty sad. Glad we did'nt go to the SB and win this way. Just sad no one really thinks the Steelers should have won. Mkaes you wonder what the score would have been if Seattle got those calls.

        The calls hurt the Seahawks in the game, obviously,
        but outside of the game, after the game,
        it's the Steelers who suffer the most from the bad calls.
        Ironic and unnecessary.
        Needs to be cleaned up, and improved -- thoroughly and immediately.

          I was just thinking it might get a more serious look if it read something els... That title just sounds like some angry seattle fan made it after the game.

          Hopefully it gets noticed by someone who can do something.
          Check out the other petition on the link below.
          Might like that wording and title better.

                            Official Argument of the Week from Dumb People: The NFL can improve its officiating by making all of its officials full-time employees. Sounds swell. But, uh … what are full-time referees going to do exactly? Come in every day from February through August to do what – watch game film and review calls? And why is that going to help them any when they have to make split second calls with the naked eye once the season starts? The human eye can’t beat slow motion instant replay. The officials, whether they have to show up to work all spring and summer or not, are going to lose that battle every time. If the refs have to come to work every day, all they’re going to end up doing is pumping iron all day with Ed Hochuli. And then not only will we have blown calls to deal with, but referees with 40-inch biceps who won’t hesitate to track us down and destroy us if we criticize them.

                            I’m not going to say the full-time idea is without merit though. I acknowledge that the full-time refs/umps in the NBA and MLB always do a great job. I mean, that’s irrefutable. Those guys are freaking fantastic. When those officials make horrible calls each and every postseason, it’s no less terrible, but at least there’s the hope that it might not happen one day in the very distant future due to them being on the clock 365 days a year. The NFL doesn’t offer the same hope, and for that the league should be criticized. For shame, NFL. For shame.

                              Yes, good.
                              First step is for the vast majority of fans to see and admit there is a huge, ongoing problem,
                              and to demand that something constructive and substantial be done about it by the NFL.

                              As I said before,
                              It may or may not be "fixed" --
                              but it sure as hell is broken.

                              So, now onto the discussions and debates about what should be done about it.

                                That third petition, about the ref performance as a public statistic, is quite interesting.
