MIAMI (Jan. 31, 2007) -- Brothers will officiate in the Super Bowl for the first time, with umpire Carl Paganelli and back judge Perry Paganelli working the game between the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts.

Tony Corrente will referee his first Super Bowl. Corrente is concluding his 12th season in the league. He was the alternate referee for last year's game worked by Bill Leavy, and has worked six playoff games.

Carl Paganelli is in his eighth NFL season and has worked six postseason matches. His brother is in his ninth year and has also done six playoff games.

Also on the officiating crew are head linesman George Hayward, line judge Ron Marinucci, field judge Jim Saracino and side judge John Parry. The Super Bowl officiating crew collectively has 73 years of NFL experience and 52 combined postseason game assignments.

Mark Burns will be the replay assistant, working his second Super Bowl. Jeff Triplette, Butch Hannah, Carl Johnson, Buddy Horton and Rich Reels will serve as alternate officials, Triplette as the backup referee.

Super Bowl officials are assigned according to a season-long evaluation system. Each must have five years of NFL experience and worked previous playoffs.

It's nice to know that in a homophobic culture, that you can wear a shirt 3 sizes too small, be horrible at your job, yet still be lionized.

Ed Hochuli is the best ref in the league. I've never seen him do a poor officiating job.

Ed Hochuli is the best ref ever. Why do you think Chad Johnson wears #85? That's right, because Ed Hochuli does.

Ed Hochuli is the best ref in the league. I've never seen him do a poor officiating job.And even if he did do a bad job, nobody would notice on account of his rippling biceps.

Triplette is the backup referee? He has to have a contract with Satan tucked into a desk drawer somewhere.

If I didn't know jack shit about football, Ed Hochuli would be great...but when he explains every ****ing penalty to the exact detail, it gets pretty ****ing annoying.

I don't know - I figured the Ref$ would do everything in their power to ensure that America's Darling Saints won the NFC Championship Game, but it seemed like the Bears had more questionable calls go in their favor.

Of course, in Chicago, a bought off official who just hosed the Bears out of the Super Bowl might not get out of the city alive. :evil:
