You can't say it doesn't matter what happened before that play but it does matter. You make your own luck. The 49ers put themselves in a do or die situation and got unlucky. The whole outcome of the game was not decided by the officials. Too many hypotheticals to consider.
Let's say there's no holding there, Crabtree still has to make the catch. Then the 49ers have to stop the Ravens from marching back with enough time and timeouts. Or what if the ref calls the penalty. The 49ers still have to punch the ball in to take the lead. Maybe they succeed but they also just failed three straight times from the five. And again, they'd have to stop the Ravens who would have plenty of timeouts.
I just don't agree with throwing out everything else that happened in a game because one play was officiated incorrectly and happened to occur at the worst possible moment.
nope not even close...and for the record, I hate the Niners, I just like to see a good fair game in the Superbowl and have the game decided on the field. You're absolutely right if you wanna argue that the Niners didn't deserve to win that game, because they only came to play for about a quarter or a quarter and a half, the rest of the game they were invisible on offense and defense. But as a ref, you can't blow a call that badly in the ****ing superbowl, that's a tragedy, its not 'bad luck' dude, its bad ****ing officiating, REALLY bad, there is simply no way else you can slice this one no matter how much of a Ravens homer you might be. I believe the correct call in that situation should have been holding, 5 yards, automatic 1st down. You can't maul the receiver after the 5 yard cushion dude, especially when you aren't even remotely looking at the ball. Not saying the Niners woulda scored if that's the way it woulda played out but I sure as hell woulda liked to see them decide it on the field instead of some dickhead ref without a clue
