    It's almost like karma for the Steelers game when Pittsburgh got robbed out of their victory and the Saints fans kept pilling on about how "good teams overcome bad calls" - so, that clearly aged well.

    I agree about the officiating, though. The difference is almost night and day compared to last year.

    I guess it's the Pats in the Super Bowl. Again.

    Sigh.
    Still doesn't take away the fact that the Saints got refslapped with the biggest no call of the century.

    Finally, Pats' fans ~11 months Superbowl drought has ended, congrats.

    Overtime rules need a serious look over. Chiefs would’ve done the same thing if they won the toss.

    I've gone from wanting the Patriots dynasty to end, to appreciating being able to witness history, back to desperately wanting it to end again.

    I do not have a single memory of the Patriots being a bad team.

    Well that was a rather depressing evening from a Pick’Em POV

    Any way on to the Super Bowl let’s hope for some revenge 18 years on :D

    It's heeeeeeerrreeeeee.... SUPER BOWL week!!!

    After all that, it's hard to believe the only 1 game remains. Let's see where we sit in the standings.

    Conference Championship Weekend:

    Alamact - 15

    PrincessLeiaCB3 - 15
    Rogues1138 - 15
    Trevor - 15

    DarthSnow - 15
    Capt. Andrew Luck - 15
    Addi Ras - 0
    Teline - 0
    Maximus - 0

    Current Standings:

    1st - @Alamact - 130 pnts (last week: 1st, =)
    2nd - @Rogues1138 - 115 pnts (last week: 2nd, =)
    3rd - @Trevor - 114 pnts (last week: 3rd, =)
    4th - @PrincessLeiaCB3 - 111 pnts (last week: 4th, =)
    5th - @Capt. Andrew Luck - 110 pnts (last week: T-5th, =)
    6th - @DarthSnow - 107 pnts (last week: 8th, +2)
    7th - @teline - 95 pnts (last week: T-5th, -2)
    8th - @Addi Ras - 93 pnts (last week: 7th, -1)
    9th - @Maximus - 73 pnts (last week: 9th, =)

    Rules for the Super Bowl are as previously stated:
    So along with your team selection, please also choose a final score.
    For the Bonus, I've attached a list of prop bets. Fill this out and post it back here, each correct answer is worth an extra 1/2 point! The standings are pretty tight so this almost certainly will come into play in the final standings.

    Finally...
    I am giving you all the option to submit your picks privately to me via a PM.
    With the standings so tight and practically everything up for grabs for the majority of players, I am trying to make an effort to maintain the integrity of the game (take notes, Roger) and to play the actual game and not the players.

    I've already submitted my pick to a neutral party in @FN-3263827 so my selection is set in stone. Prior to kickoff on Sunday I will list all the picks I've received here in this thread.

    You can still submit the prop bets in this thread if you'd like. If you have any other questions or concerns please let me know!


    Good luck everybody!!

    The Super Bowl:

    the Twileks (Rams) WILL win this weekend.
