For the sole reason to fish the bandwagon ****s out of our fanbase.

Ben has spoiled us for far far far too long and its only right the riverats go back down to the sewers.

Dark times are ahead.

Everyteam has fair weather fans and you see them pop up especially after a team wins the super bowl... true story i live in md and when the ravens came to town they were just down right horrible! Until they won a super bowl then everybody had a stupid flag flying from their car... ive noticed a dramatic increase in steeler stuff around these parts but its whatever.. true fans stick with their team in the good and bad luckily for us steelers dont have too many of these years.. i think this year was just bad because we have a decent team on paper these dudes just couldnt pull it together which happens... kinda like the dream team? And look how well they did

I know about a dozen ravens fans and half of them can't tell you a thing about the team (history, players from the past, etc)...and most of them "never watched football before the Ravens were a team"...irritates me that these douchebag fans talk as much **** as iggle fans and have no clue about the ravens past other than they won a super bowl

So being the "diehard" fan that you are Flame...you want to see the team suck to get rid of the "lesser" fans?

Is that the logic you are presenting today?

Yes.

I am a die hard fan.

I stay up at sunday, monday and thursday night games from 1-4am to watch the games, thats a fan to me, I haven't missed a game since 2008 unless I've had a flight.

Or does the Voice Say else wise?

I have never missed a Steelers game by choice......I missed two games since 2000 and it was due to work......But I'm not watching this upcoming Browns game since I don't want to spend anymore time on this season....It sucked so I just want to move on.....Even in non play-off years since I have had the Sunday tix I still watched every game even when they were out of it.....But I just can't do it anymore with this team and really I'm glad they missed the play-offs to save the disappointment of a first round play-off loss again.....Time to talk draft.......

The 90s were not that bad of a decade........Sure there was a ton of disappointments......Super Bowl XXX, 94 AFC title game loss to the Chargers, 97 AFC title game loss to the Broncos which both were in Pittsburgh......But the Steelers were competitive and made the play-offs more times then not in the 90s....The 90s was a fun decade....Of course it doesn't match the 2000s in terms of success.........I remember little of the late 80s so I won't comment on the 80s.........

But to touch on Flame's point....Yes the younger fans are really spoiled and I find their constant bashing of Ben to be really amusing.......I guess sitting through Brister, O'Donnell, Tomcazk, Miller, Stewart in the 90s makes me appreciate Ben even when he does play terrible......Of course we had those clowns Kent Graham and Tommy Maddox in the early part of the 2000s.....lol Kent Graham started the 2000 season as the starting QB....Kent ****ING Graham....lol The Kent Graham experiment didn't last long but it still was horrible.........

I don't know everything about the Steelers or keep track of records and player history, but does that make me less of a fan because I choose not keep useless information in my brain. I root for the team just as hard as any other fan.

The only highlight in the 80s was when the Steelers put the only blemish on the 49ers season win/loss record in 1984, so you didn't miss much.

I think all the bandwagon fans went to the Pack/Pats/Broncos/Colts/Ravens/Giants/ Now the Bengals will be in the mix if they win 1 postseason game. I really dont think there are a lot of Steeler bandwagon fans.

No it doesn't, but this franchise dates back to 1933, long before any of us were around. To be a "diehard" fan of a team that was established 16 yrs ago, I would expect one to know a little bit more than a few names and team colors...

If you are such a diehard, why would you want the team to suck? Just to get back at "lesser" fans?

That's pretty damn idiotic.

Born date: 08/17/1970

Steelers fan: 08/17/1970... Born into the the tradition without knowledge

Realization of being a Steelers fan: 01/12/1975 Super Bowl IX... I remember sitting on my parents bed with my father watching the Super Bowl. Not really sure of what I was watching, but knowing that it was important because of my father's reactions to the game. He told me that the Steelers were the best team, and that they would be Champions for a long time if the won that game. He went on to say that they had waited a long time to be Champions and that if they won, they would continue to keep winning.
From that point on, I understood the magnitude of "Bleeding Black & Gold." It was not just a moniker of saying you "rooted" for the Steelers, but rather a permanent brand or marking that would be visible where ever you went. Especially in school, where most of my friends were Browns fans. I was baptized with the Immaculate Reception and made my Confirmation with the Four Super Bowl Victories of the '70's. I paid my penance through the '80's as a teenager and lived like a king and suffered like a jester as a single man through the '90's. I went on to revel with the success of the team through the 00's, and then I got married (please no applause or condolence). But I realized throughout these times of trials and tribulations and successes is that it becomes a circle of life. I now have a son in kindergarten who wears his Steelers' jerseys proudly (Chicagoland mind you) and never wants to play anywhere else during the cold weather except the Steelers' room that I have so patiently waited to make with all the memorabilia that I saved as a kid and acquired throughout my marriage. It is a room where we as a family enjoy the games during the season, win or lose and reminisce in the off season and the upcoming draft to come.
So I say this...with all due respect to all posters, especially the young bucks, who have not lived through all the stories from older generations or witnessed the downfalls and rebuilding of the team, either be a fan...or don't.

It's a cardinal 'Steelers' sin to wish the team loses so that bandwagon fans go away or switch teams...Ridiculous in my book


I still wear my jersey and Steelers memorabilia every weekend with pride!

Yes they are the bandwagon fans. Real fans don't wish your team to lose for any reason. I live in Cleveland and I always said if the steelers only win two games any year let them be against the browns. So if u are wishing them to lose, f$$$ you! We don't need a fan like you representing us. I've been a steelers fan since 1980. I watched a lot of mediocrity from 1980-91. I longed for the glory days again. And the 90s werent so bad. 5 division titles and a sb appearance. The winning thing started in the 70s. Long before u were born, son. I can tell you are young and speak out your ***.

HOW MANY SB did the Steelers win in the 90's?

Clevelandsux
12-27-2012, 03:19 PM
As many as they won in the 80s.But the 90s were alot better than the 80s. 6 playoff appearances. 1sb appearance and 3 AFc title games.

This may sound retarded but do u think that's why Goodell made all these rule changes,to fu#k us up,to decrease our fan base for $$$$$$$$ reasons.People loved to watch a defense that has a swagger about them,now u take that away and there just a mediocre team like anyone else.I know Steeler merchandise is probably the biggest seller here in T.O. Next to be the Toronto Blue Jays when we win the World Series next year :crossfingers:Okay call me fu#kd up:bonk:

All I want for Xmas is a loss and higher draft pick. I want them to lose and lose bad. Maybe another loss will be more of an eye opener that changes need to be made.
