In typical degenerate gambling form the public money gets screwed again. Why does it always seem to happen? And to me no less. Referee Scott Green admitted that the reversal of the last second touchdown by Troy Polamalu should have never happened.
“The first pass was the one that was illegal, but it only kills the play if it hits the ground,” Green said. “That was incorrect to have killed it at that point. The ruling should have let the play go on. That’s just the way that it played out. We believe the second pass was legal.”
Seriously, why does this never happen in my favor?!?! According ot RJ Bell of pregame.com, the bookies were the big winner.
“An estimated 100 million dollars was wagered worldwide on the Pittsburgh/San Diego game, according to RJ Bell of Pregame.com. Approximately 66% of that money was on the Steelers; with only 34% on the Chargers.
â€If the touchdown was properly upheld, Steelers bettors would have won about 32 million dollars instead of losing big. This admittedly incorrect call resulted in a 64 million dollar swing in favor of the bookies.â€ said RJ Bell of Pregame.com.”
Good game me! And welcome to my list Scott Green. You join the likes of Chris Duhon and Sasha Vujacic as people I have been screwed by in the wild ride of sports gambling.
