Fellow Steeler fans:

Give this writer a piece of your mind!...or just spam the hell out of him! Read this article, I am sure you will be as pi**ed off as I am!
Here is his email: montreatman@aol.com and pdaugherty@enquirer.com

http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20091114/COL03/311140007/1082/SPT/Bengals%20fed%20up%20with%20Steeler%20bullies

Here is what I wrote to him:
Paul Ė



Obviously, you didnít go to the last Steelers/Bengals game. Before you start throwing names around like a little 6 year old!! The Bengal fans were unreal! Just because someone gave you a computer and some fingers to type, how dare you throw names out like troll or mindless. I know you are in need of attention because you were the little boy that got beat up at school and now you are looking like big man on campus because you are in the position to have the power to write an article. I have worked with people like you all my life. We could spend a whole day trying to figure out your troubled youth. Your job as a writer is to look at both sides, not to write what people want to hear.



EVERY, and I mean EVERY NFL football team has fans that are good and bad. So for you to throw all Steelers fans into the same group, is showing your ignorance and all you are trying to do is build your credibility with the Cincinnati crowd. The Steeler fans I know, which are all over the Queen city, are nothing like you write about, get your facts straight, go to Martinos on any given Sunday, do your research as a reporter.



So next time you write an article covering this topic, do us all a favor and donít, let someone else who is a bit more grounded to write that for our paper, you might want to stick with placing the classifieds.



Best wishes on your new classified assignment,

Chris Spencer

This gets me fired up but Im use to it by now from opposing teams fans. The Bengals and their fans need to remember that even though they own the head to head tiebraker over the Steelers now the Steelers are still right on their asses only a game behind them in the loss column. This thing is far from being over and what the Steelers need to do now is keep winning games the rest of the way because at some point here soon the Bengals will drop a game or two and the Steelers once again will be tied or ahead of the Bengals. Still 7 games left and a lot of football to go. The Bengals body of work will ultimately be judged by what they do in the playoffs and not in November by beating the Steelers. The Steelers are not going away and the Bengals are still going to have to keep winning games in order to hold the Steelers off from overtaking them in the division despite having swept them already...

"He revels obnoxiously in his steadfast loyalty, but really, thereís nothing noble about rooting for a chronic winner. It requires only your presence, not your guts. Letís see you hang in there for 12 years of 5-11, Polamalu jersey-wearer."

I am not going to say that I agree with this and yes, if the writer doesn't understand that there are bad and good fans in every NFL team, than he is a moron. Heck if he thinks that a bigger percentage of Steelers fans than Bengals fans are bad, he is wrong. However, my blood was boiling yesterday and I wasn't going to bring this up here but this topic made me. After the game I was waiting for the players to come out to give them a hand as I believe every true fan should do, no matter how bad they might have played. There was a guy, drunk of his butt, yelling "50%" the whole time. To Charlie Batch :"Good job Charlie, you should have played, you would have done better than that 50% guy". To Hines Ward:"Good job Hines, I know you can't do better with that 50% guy". And finally to Ben: "50%, hey 50%, you passed 50%, you are a joke, 50%". Mind you he was yelling this as loud as he could, and not only were the players able to hear this but around 200 fans around there. We were basically 50 feet away from the players at the most. When he started yelling to Ben I got up on the fence and started yelling towards him to shut up and that he is not a Steelers fan.

Like I said, there are bad fans, this was just one. But the fact that someone can be so moronic and idiotic to act like this towards our 2-time Championship QB after one bad game is beyond me. The fact that no one other than me confronted him disappointed me as well.
Go Steelers!!!!!!

There are a TON of obnoxious Steeler fans...I can't stand a lot of them. But there are ones, like on this site, that are fine...some just go way too far.

I'm sorry, but what would you expect a Bengal fan to say" I love the Steelers and their fans " ?

It's nothing more than the truth, they want to be us.Actually he got it wrong,it's hard being a Steeler fan. They don't know the agony of losing when you expect to win every week.

When the Bengals are the team you claim to love,you wake up one day and notice they have a winning record. Now you have to run and buy a jersey ( after you check the stats and findout whose on the team ) and set aside time on Sunday to actually watch a game.

But that only happens once or twice a decade.

I know the reality of good fans and bad fans. But, when this guy groups all of us as bad apples, that is what gets me going. .....and we will see what happens in December, my money is on our Steelers taking the AFC North!

Try going into an establishment to watch a Steeler game in this city. I can't tell you the number of times I have endured a table or more of Bungal fans, when our teams are not playing each other, watching our game and not only cheering against the Steelers (expected) but cheering for our players to go down....I mean cheering that they would be hurt! I didn't read the article. I have no need. I know what kind of character much of their fan base has.

Personally I dont care what any Bungle writer or fan thinks of us... it is pure resentment against us because of our success. They have none... they never won a SB -- and they wont in a long time. They are the Bungles... a laughing stock of the NFL - they went to two SB's and lost both... they have done nothing in 20 years. NOTHING.

F them.

Someone was bound to go and stir up the big pot of play-off potential . I say "let them go " .
Let us watch in amazement as they falter , and stumble way down to the level where they will only begin to understand . A level that they have not known for forever !
They have tried to" level" a lesson for us to learn .
Man will they ever be surprised !
I admire their cockiness , and who would not , considering their sorry excuse for a football team .
Bengal fans have all the reasons in the world to feel that way . They beat the Super Bowl champs twice . I would probably feel that way too , but , i ain't no Bengal fan .
I met one tonight , and they are going to the Super Bowl , according to him .
The road to the Super Bowl is going through Pittsburgh !!!!!!!!!!!
Please do not be mistaken .

I used to live in Powell and I know what you mean...the Bengals crap wasn't as bad in Columbus as were the Brownstains fans.....but now that I live in Northern Kentucky the Bearcat crap is really starting to get on my nerves.......just so the entire world knows that with just 3 weeks left until the Panthers take on the Bearcats.....the Panthers will win that game and redemption for the City of Pittsburgh will be at hand....I say this because with the Steelers losing twice this year they are talking Super Bowl and NCAA BCS Championship around here....Well wouldn't it be nice to see Pitt knock them off, then watch Minnesota, and San Diego take the Bengals out in back to back weeks----and on the last week of the season the NY Jets knock them out of the playoffs.....how funny would that be.....Mid November----the Center of the football world....starting off the new year waiting until next season......could happen and that my friends is my 2010 prediction!
Oh by the way.....Paul Daugherty or P Daugh as he is called around her....is a Pittsburgh native only leaving the city some 20 years back...so he knows about tradition and what it means to be a Steelers fan......Deep down he has some of that in him

Why should we care what someone writes about? Everyone in the NFL and who is a fan of professional football knows that there are more Steeler fans than any other team and we are nation wide. Sure there are some dumbass fans of the Steelers but most are normal hard working blue collar folks who just want to watch their game and pull for the Steelers. Remember one thing, we Steeler fans have had documentaries made about our loyalty and passion for this team.

Unfortunately, it's true. Every fan base has the ones we would like to hide and throw out of the club. That's just how life is. Among any group you will have your *******s who make the rest look bad.

When a Bengals fan is in my face and a few have over the past few days all I do is this....I take my right hand and flash them 5----and then I take my left hand and flash them the middle finger and ask if they can count......and preceed to ask the question.......how many can you raise?

I agree with you 100% on the Fever comment mostly because I just came from the crapy message board. It seems like the fans there like to bash more then the opposing team! They been bashing the Steelers lately and I couldn't take it anymore. I could only imagine how bad it would get there if the Steelers didn't make the playoffs.

Maybe the writer is talking about those forums and not this one, so far it seems like this place is great for talking football!

This writer's a genius and certainly did his job to perfection.

I'm 100% serious, so hear me out on this.

As a sports writer, I know full well what to do and what to say to get reads and discussions stirred up. So does this guy.

You want sure fire controversy, attack a team with a rabid fan base, attack a team with a winning tradition.

In the NFL...you go after teams like the Steelers, Cowboys, Raiders, etc. (Yes, the Raiders. Have you seen their fans online? They're everywhere.).

Now, I have no idea what the writer said, because to be perfectly honest with you my skin is entirely too tough to get sucked into some pissing match who took on a two bit job with the Enquirer. But he obviously did something right, because not only does he have the Cincinnati fans reading this article, but the Steelers fans as well.

Is he right? Yes and no. To say that the Steelers have the perfect fans is ridiculous, and I agree with the sentiment that I cannot stand half of the ones I meet. In fact this site is the only all Steelers site that I can go on and not leave after reading three posts.

You'll see a lot of Steelers fans try and debate a logical argument from a fan of another team with "We've got six Super Bowl wins, what about you?" and then walk away with a sh!t eating grin on their face. That's sickening.

I'll talk to maybe three Steelers fans on Bleacher Report as well, because I'm tired of hearing feel good stories about a team that just lost to the Chiefs. Yeah, it's all well and good for a minute, but sooner or later the puppy dogs and chocolate gets sickening.

In fact the one Bengals fan I did associate with on B/R I probably liked more than the Steelers fans (at least most of them) on the site.
