8. Super Bowl XL - Choke On This, Ref!
Ben Roethlisberger's first Super Bowl win came with help from the beleaguered officiating crew. It was a tough day for the zebras (we'll allow them to remain anonymous), who botched several key calls — whiffing on Big Ben's phantom go-ahead TD plunge in the second quarter (one replays showed he clearly never deserved), nullifying a late catch by TE Jeremy Stevens with a ghost penalty (taking away field position inside Pittsburgh's 5-yard line) and whistling Seattle QB Matt Hasselbeck on a mysterious personal foul during an INT return, leaving fans sleepless in Seattle.
