Steelers fan seeks injunction, claims Chargers shouldn't be in playoffs
 
Quote:

Most Pittsburgh Steelers fans were pretty upset with the the way the NFL season ended. Kansas City kicker Ryan Succop missed a 41-yard field with four seconds left against the Chargers that would have given the Chiefs the win and sent the Steelers to the playoffs.

Even worse, the Chargers should've been flagged for illegal alignment on the kick. If officials had called the penalty, Succop would have had another kick, but this time, from five-yards closer.

One Steelers fan was so upset with the entire situation that he decided to file a motion in Pennsylvania court saying the Chargers shouldn't be in the playoffs. The man is seeking a 'temporary emergency injunction' calling for the NFL to suspend the playoffs for seven-to-10 days so that this issue can be resolved. The man says the officials were 'negligent' and 'fraudulent' when they missed the call.

The injunction was filed last week, according to the Baltimore Sun, but the man is in jail and had to file the injunction using inmate mail through the Pennsylvania corrections department, which may explain why the injunction didn't come to light until Wednesday.

The man also has an issue with the fact that a Chiefs touchdown was called back in overtime. Eric Weddle lost the ball on a fake punt and the Chiefs returned it for an apparent touchdown, but referee Bill Leavy ruled that Weddle's forward progression had stopped. In his injunction, the man calls this 'unconstitutional.'

To rectify the situation involving the Steelers and Chargers, the man suggests letting Succop re-kick the field goal or possibly letting the two teams play on a neutral field to see who gets the playoff berth.

The Bengals probably wouldn't mind letting this injunction play out and then taking on the winner of the Steelers-Chargers game.

If you'd like to read the entire injunction, you can do that here. Also, as the Baltimore Sun notes, the man has not submitted a filing fee or requested a waiver.

Actual document filed ... lol.

Looks like it was written by a 3rd grader. At 8-8 I don't think one can really argue that the Steelers deserved to be in the playoffs. Now I have reason to root for the Chargers the rest of the way.

I've said it before but I will say it again here. If the Pittsburgh Steelers ever get screwed over by a bad call I will be perfectly OK with it.

True, I didn't even think about that.

Same here!!!

Oh and btw, I believe the Chargers should've made the playoffs especially because of that FG miscall. Because the way they lost to us due to a BS FG call, they certainly deserve to make the playoffs.

I agree completely.

One of the reasons I do not really believe in the concept of "karma" is that I've never seen it actually equalize itself. The Steelers get calls like the Renfro catch, have an entire team of steroid-abusing meatheads in the '70'S, yet they have six Lombardi trophies. "Karma" is B.S., in spite of what some of my hippy-dippy friends believe.

As far as this story, my thought: SHUT UP, STEELER FAN

Hear! Hear!

Daniel L. Spuck of Mercer, PA. can go spuck himself and sit in a puddle of mud and watch the replay 100 times as his Steelers get rightfully hosed by a bad call.

His aggravation and misery make me giggle and smile.

Or as Dieter Sprockets would say, "His misery is both delicious and exciting and makes me as happy as a little girl." http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...ps99af1baa.jpg
