View Full Version : Are other teams' fans/boards as nuts as we are?

Anyone visit the boards of other teams? Is there passion and fire like we have over there, or are their fans sort of lukewarm? I mean, here it is Saturday afternoon, there are about 14 things I need to be doing, and I'm on a friggin' Steelers board :HeadBanger

I remember reading about latte-sipping Seahawks fans in '05, and that the fair weather Charger fans are not invested in their team to any real degree. But I imagine the Bears, and Packers, those sort of teams have rabid fans too.

Anyone know?

Can today be any longer????? :twisted:

Oakland maybe? Those fans are loyal. Speaking from Indiana, Colts fan are not rabid or into their team at all. They THINK they are, but they are not.

Why is there an "ad banner" between the 1st and 2nd messages on this thread? It's in many threads, but I guess I never noticed it until now..... Very wrong....

As wrong as that may be, it really doesn't bother me as much as that GBd8ing ad on the front page. THAT is just wrong on this site :wft pukeiconhere (I don't want to spell it out, or use correct spelling at all, in case some bot senses it).

Good luck. Since the NFL came up with NFL Field Pass for streaming audio they have made it illegal for stations to stream audio of games.

You'd probably find it easier on that justintv.com site.

Can you go to a sportsbar that has the NFL package on Direct TV?

No both bar's in town are red neck bar's and don't have the NFL package I would have to drive 70 miles to find that and if I could afford the gas to do that every sunday I would just get the NFL package myself, But thanks. I guess I'll just have to watch the Black and Gold bars on the computer. Go Steelers!!!

Steeler fans are despised in many parts of the country because of their pronounced superiority complex, which is evident in the title of this thread.

Believe it or not, but several other teams have fans that are just as loyal and active as we are.

The Buffalo Bills have a very active message board on their home site. There was a vicious Civil War between the Jp Losman backers, and the Trent Edwards supporters the entire off season. Every day there was a new thread about the two QB's, it was really something else to see. I never registered on the board, fearing I'd get caught in the crossfire lol.

Lot of pent up aggression from fans who haven't seen the playoffs in 9 years.

Sounds about as nasty as a pillow fight!!!

Let me weigh in for my bros and sisters of the Red and Gold (Chiefs). In the main, we're a solidly loyal and passionate bunch and, like most teams, are at a high fever pitch when the team is winning and competing for post season berths.

The true measure of any fandom is when the team (like now) is in a rebuilding mode or down cycle. Too many of us are still seeing the team through the glory day lens of the 90s when Montana , Derrick Thomas and Marty were part of the national scene. Those same fans don't want to hear about how far the team has fallen and so, are hard to be more realistic in their expectations for the team.

I guess that may be normal, but then again, perhaps not? Anyway, in answer to the main topic of this thread, I'd give Chief's fans high marks when the team is going well, and about a C+ when they're not.

Hardliner - I have a question for you about a "chant" from the Chiefs fans. I don't know if they still do it or not, but I seem to recall that after Rock & Roll Part II would play the Chiefs fans would chant something...but it's completely indecipherable on TV. Can you help me out? It's bugged me for years!

Another one that bugged me for years...Broncos fans have a chant...three syllables...I finally found out what it is...after every incomplete pass they yell "IN-COM-PLETE". To the home viewer it always sounded like "HEY-HO-HEE". I knew that wasn't what they were saying...just giving an example of how indecipherable it was.

Of course the Packers have their sax music with the "Go Pack Go" chant. And us Packers haters change it to "Blow Pack Blow". :D

All I know is that after watching that clusterf[]ck of a game in East Carolina yesterday, I am ready to get the Steelers season underway. I can only hope the GOOD team shows up today and dominates. I don't know how much more lousy performance me and Bubba can take before he eats the TV or kills the neighbors cat :D . Yeah, our intensity is hard to beat over here on this side of Steeler Country. :tt1 :tt1 :tt1 :tt1

Thank you! Now that you mention it I recall the "you, you, you" part but I never knew what the rest was.
