[URL="http://www.kffl.com/link/21"]Mike Sando[/URL], of the [URL="http://www.kffl.com/link/37"]Tacoma News Tribune[/URL], reports [URL="http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl"]NFL[/URL] officiating director Mike Pereira said three of the four controversial calls during Super Bowl XL were ruled correctly. The holding penalty on [URL="http://www.kffl.com/team/33/nfl"]Seattle Seahawks[/URL] OG [URL="http://www.kffl.com/player/9568/nfl"]Sean Locklear[/URL], WR [URL="http://www.kffl.com/player/1725/nfl"]Darrell Jackson[/URL]'s pass interference, and [URL="http://www.kffl.com/team/30/nfl"]Pittsburgh Steelers[/URL] QB [URL="http://www.kffl.com/player/9341/nfl"]Ben Roethlisberger[/URL]'s touchdown run were all ruled correctly. He admitted that the officials clearly missed when [URL="http://www.kffl.com/team/33/nfl"]Seahawks[/URL] QB [URL="http://www.kffl.com/player/1713/nfl"]Matt Hasselbeck[/URL] was flagged for an illegal block. Pereira said, "To me, it's a hard game to officiate. With that being said, we have to fight to get better. We had some mistakes in the playoffs and we've had to suffer the consequences."
