I wasn't really disappointed as I expected it to be just like it was.   And for me it was still better than watching Justin Timberlake...    ;D

I think you're talking about the start of Who Are You, but we KNOW those vocals are enhanced (even in concert).  He even makes that hurried move back to the mic in concert sometimes, too.  However, there are a couple of places where Pete sings something that is clearly not on the mashup version (his second "sure plays a mean pinball" & "Ha!" after the first "who who, who who").  So his mic was definitely live.

As far as Roger goes, we now know that his vocals were mostly, if not all dubbed.  I'm disappointed by that, but now we also know Springsteen & reportedly others have done the same thing for this event, so my disappointment lies more with the NFL than The Who.  I'm only sorry The Who agreed to do this farce in the first place.
