Via Modesihouse is something worth noting on what the ref's mistake at the end of the game meant. Either way the Steelers won, but the negated 6 points could have made a 1 point spread into a 7 point spread which made all the difference in the world to the sports book where the Chargers were 4.5 point underdogs. So that last call by the ref made a lot of winners into losers and vice versa. According to Deadspin, that adds up to at least $64 million dollar swing among the bettors. Where is Jimmy the Greek when you need him? There has to be a Nick Perry story in this somehow. Too many 4's and 6's involved to be coincidence.
Looks like the NYT is even running a story of how the Steelers game caused chaos in Las Vegas. Worth a read.
