Apparently in England they have a hockey team called the Steelers.

Just checked their official site, and no, not only do they not wear black and gold, their colors are orange and black! Bengals colors! And their uniforms look like the FLYERS!!!

I had a google filter setup to get all news containing "Steelers" and I use to get articles about this Hockey Team all the time! Needless to say I had to update my search criteria :dunno:

I think because they play hockey, they are not violating anything because the Steelers we know play football. There are loopholes when it comes to owning names and what industry you decide to use the name in.
