    What a catch by Holmes!

    Terrible reffing on both sides of the ball. Roughing the passer on Arizona and the hold in the endzone on the Steelers was a joke. And how long did they look at that Warner "fumble" to end the game? Two seconds?

    If the description I read of just how much was shown in the porn incident was accurate (about 30 seconds worth of video including full-frontal shots) I don't think I'd classify a negative reaction and/or bru-ha-ha as people being overly sensitive. That's not just brief nudity that you've got to carefully control a DVR to see -- that's flat out porn. Is a person with a kid seeing porn and not saying "Look sweetie! Watch this!" really a prude? When honest to goodness porn makes its way onto broadcast TV, if people are upset, I don't think thats unreasonable. That goes beyond mere hinting and implying and/or adult channels in the 600 range of channel selectons of a cable system which can easily be blocked.

    Besides, lets not forget that the whole thing happened in Arizona. At that point in the game, if it had been interrupted by Mr Rogers Neighborhood, I think there'd be an outcry.

    I saw the clip and I'm afraid I'd have to be called "over sensitive" if that would have aired here. My children were watching with us.

    Although I did read a comment from someone who said the porn interruption was a well-constructed message to the refs to stop acting like d***s and making bogus calls.

    Awesome game! Two years in a row now the super bowl has had me on the edge of my seat, and both times the team we were cheering for won! I wish some of that would rub off on my reality tv show picks.

    As for the porn, I likely would have been quite ticked. I haven't seen it, but I wonder now if those who had a fit during nipplegate realize a real blunder when they see one. I witnessed nipplegate live and it happened so fast that I didn't even process what I had saw. I just wasn't looking that hard-lol. As the refs would say..."upon further review" I clearly saw it the second time around, but really, how many kids really said "hey...there's Janet's boob". Now porn is porn, and I can imagine what they saw in that case. Let's see if it becomes an international incident this time around, and who will pay for the blunder.

    The porn was regional...Arizona only I believe. I don't know how much people saw, but I don't think porn has much down time (no pun intended) so I can imagine it was pretty graphic.

    Ok, then I didn't miss it. California has a strict delay. We have people here who have cable and sat. There is a 3 second delay between the two. One group yelled out yeah! and we hadn't seen the td until 3 seconds later!
    Yup, with donuts!!

    There's a difference between a negative reaction and demanding compensation from Comcast. And for what? Seeing a body part? Of which was only actually truly out there for maybe 6 seconds tops.

    How would children be more likely to be "scarred" by the incident? If it's casually brushed off, or if their parents start yelling and screaming at them to cover their eyes or clear out of the room? Mistakes happen and this is just another example of how damn protected we are of kids nowadays. But that's a whole other can of worms.

    And besides, once we get into a certain age range, it's not like they haven't looked up or stumbled across that stuff already.

    Sure, if you call tackling a guy a joke. Yes some of the other calls and non-calls were jokes, but the hold in the endzone was definitely a correct call.

    I, for one, would have been pissed. Sure, it's only a body part but it's not up to Comcast to decide when my children get to see that. And I guarantee you my 7 year old hasn't "stumbled across" it. It was more than just a brief few seconds of nudity. The guy had his pants unzipped by some bimbo. He then took out his unit and stood shaking it like a maniac in front of the camera. I would have been outraged if it had aired here and Comcast would not soon forget me.

    On another note, that was one great game! Congrats to all you Pittsburgh fans!

    I would have felt very uncomfortable if my grown daughter had seen it with me, much less with my grandchildren.
