    Lightbulb Top 10 NFL traditions: Terrible Towel is #6?

    Watching one of the million or so NFL Network Top 10 shows tonight, and this episode focused on the Top 10 NFL traditions of all time. This was a replay from back when it aired in 2010 I believe. Various traditions got some recognition; the flyovers of military jets before games was a good one, however the one that was somewhat surprising, the Terrible Towel was #6 out 10.

    Now I know we Steelers fans will cry foul because we think it should be #1, and while that point can be debated I do think it should have been atleast a top 5. When they questioned Ed Bouchette about it he said "it's not #1"?

    Whether you're a Pittsburgh fan or not, you have to recognize that the towel is one of the most iconic things in the NFL hands down. Whether or not you believe it holds magical powers, there's proof that if you break the 11th commandment sooner or later it will come back to haunt you.

    #11 - Thou shalt not disrespect the Terrible Towel.

    All the other teams and their fan bases downplay everything we do(steelers) so again another meaningless list everyone is jealous of our mighty franchise

    This is true... I bet you there are very few professional sports franchises who haven't gave out towels in their team colors at some point...

    Come on, why would they all want to copy it? Every other fanbase thinks the idea of the Terrible Towel is stupid...until they make their own version.

    Cool
    Surprised that stomping on it didn't get a mention on the list. Everyone seems to love to do that.
