    That article says the Steeler's season ticket waiting list is 6 years long..............that is not true. I have been on that season ticket waiting list for 11 years.

    consecutive sellout streak of 299 games, including playoffs, is unbelievable.
    I wonder if this includes road games?

    nah it just includes home games however after last night they didn't sell out so that streak ( unless they don't count preseason games) is officially over.

    Regardless though the Steeler Nation rocks!!! We rule !!!

    I don't think they do but that is a "I don't think thingy" so don't hold me to it.

    I would make a case for the best fan base simply because there are so many of us all over the world. I think fans of every team in most sports can be that way, blind to a point. Sometimes it's good but as long as people realize what really is truth and reality about their team vs what they want to sometime believe that's the thing that separates the homers. Some people are alittle homerish, hell we all probably are now and then. I know I can be if I don't watch myself but I like to think I've got a pretty good grasp of the team and such as much as any loyal fan can. Sometimes people just agree with others for the sake of conversation or not to stir the pot because it's their personality. Others enjoy stirring the said pot just to make a point and that's ok too. Every team has all types of fans and that's what makes us so great.

    I've spent years in Pgh., DC, Philly and lots of time in Cleveland. There's no doubt that they have those 4 in the right order. Philly likes to think they have the best fans but they have ignorance confused with passion. There are also many people in Philly that are Cowboy or other team fans even though they grew up in Philly. I don't get it??? Cleveland (as sorry as they are) has a great fan base and they know their football. The Redskins have the longest streak of sold out games, so that says something.
