I don't see the point in trying to turn this into an "excuse" thread. Nobody is making excuses. The thread title is factual. Stick to the FACTS and you won't have to worry about assuming people are making excuses...

sorry but i said nothing wrong. the coaches did craw into a fetal position at the end of the game. I know i am in the minority here with my views but people in the minority are usually able to see things more clearly then those in the majority

stop crowning yourself as the end all and be all, people are entitled to their opinions.
Okay, okay... Stir this back to topic.

Damn glad he's okay... and to be honest, I didn't know he was "hurt" after that play!

It has nothing to do with majority vs minority. You cannot even discuss the illegal and dangerous hit on Crabtree that may have caused him temporary blindness because you are so jaded by the people who are angry about how the game played out towards the end. Please, tell me how that hit was legal and not a danger to our player's health?

I am only assuming that was the hit he was referring to. I don't remember another hit on the final drive that could have caused that.

I'm not making excuses, but it does illustrate the absurdity in saying that the refs should, "Just let them play.", during the Super Bowl.

The rules are put in place for a reason. They should be enforced like they would be in any other game. To do otherwise clearly compromises player safety, which the NFL is (over)emphasizing for reasons that can be debated elsewhere.
when it comes to helmet to helmet...................... when in doubt. throw the flag. unless it's a crucial superbowl moment...... then keep the flags i the pocket and let the players play.

Getting blown at half or not the 2nd half we dominated with no helps from the refs.

and i to can have an opinion, even when i dare decide run counter to the popular notions. just because the refs against us is popular, that does not make it right. what is popular is not always right and what is right is not always popular.. and in regards to crabs whining about his loss of vision, he should have removed himself instead of trying to make himself out to be a victim two months after the fact. catch the ball and take the hit. that is what big players do on the big stage. sorry but i do not feel like babying crabs today
he should've acted unconscious after that. Then they'd HAVE to throw the flag.

it was not called so it was deemed not to be an infraction of the rules. you can quibble about if that was the right call or not but the bottom line to me is you have to overcome those things with big plays , the players and the coaches failed miserably at that task at the end

Ciowa would still putt the blame on crabs because he didn't get up fast enough.

So you are saying the refs are infallible. God forbid we disagree with a call or non-call.

But I digress, my question is what YOU think of the legality of the play, not what the refs thought? I'm asking you, knowing the rules of helmet to helmet on a defenseless receiver to justify the non-call by the refs. Using the refs didn't call it to support why it ought no be called is a circular argument and a logical fallacy.
