As sad as I am the Steelers are done for the season, I'm also sad our chat days are over. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the chat room this year. Most games it was the same people, but it was always fun. Some of us needed meds or alcohol from time to time, but rarely did anyone get out of hand.

I look forward to more fun chats next season!!!!

yes, I was the master of all things tweet-related, lol!!

I may be around next weekend for some of those game, especially the AFC games if anyone wants to chat then. Or the draft would be good too.

Hope to catch with you all during the draft day.

I know. In the end it is only a game, but it is hard to watch sometimes. Chat makes it easier. I was much worse before chat. if you can believe that.

Missed you all today but on cell and lost battery early.

Sad :( we are not going further but the guys gave it their all. Hopefully all the injuries will heal and work itself out next year.

Will check in for chat next weekend as it makes game day more special.

GO STEELERS! :tt2

While there are several folks that I really enjoy chatting with (SteelGal, SASF, among others) I was almost as disgusted with the attitudes of most of the people in chat yesterday during the first half as I was with the performance of the team. There is only so much "He sucks, they suck, everybody sucks" that a person can take. I signed off chat at halftime, and enjoyed the second half much better. regardless of the ultimate outcome. I do play to rejoin the chat during the draft, since that is pretty much a positive experience for most (except for the few who still thinks that Colbert sucks in spite of never having a true 1st round bust in more than a decade with the Steelers).

I understand where it may seem to be really negative in chat but to me it's cathartic to be discussing the game with people that I know are living and dying with every play just like me. I see it as passion!! Mrs. Ghost's eyes would glaze over if I started discussing formations and lack of effort for an entire game (eventually finding a reason to be in another room).

That first half was just about as bad a half as we have seen in years and it was a playoff game. Chat is where you can blow off steam so your head doesn't explode as it appeared as if the Steelers just didn't care.

I end up at the Steelers bar for a lot of games but I really enjoyed the chat when I was at home. Thanks.

You mean kind of like today, Arians should go, Lebeau should get on with his life's work, Tomlin shows no passion and sucks, elevate Butler to DC and hire Todd Haley today as OC, cut Hampton, Smith, Farrior, Hoke, Kemo, Sepulveda, Ward, Mcfadden, Wallace, Mendy, Moore, Johnson, Suisham and of course, we can't forget Timmons, Worilds, Hood, and Gilbert are busts. Did I miss anything? :D

I left right before you did, towards the end of the 1st half. The game was very hard to watch and reading some of the negativity made it that much worse for me. My 13 year old was next to me reading it and asked if the people were Steeler fans because he was surprised at some of the comments.

I did go back though near the 4th quarter. Didn't post much or read along a lot, but couldn't stand not having chat open.

Hopefully I'll be able to be around during the draft chat. I don't follow college football, at all, but atleast hearing feedback from everyone else will give me a better idea of how they did.

Chat is like watching the Jerry Springer show. It makes you feel good about yourself :)

I left yesterday after we were up 6-0 and can only imagine the fun in chat yesterday. Sometimes I leave or don't participate when I have to pause the game and get behind which I was yesterday.

My phone started ringing yesterday when the game ended and I wasn't yet caught up. With as many calls as I was getting I got a bad feeling we lost before I saw the outcome.

I view chat as a place to over react to everything - good or bad, so it just ebbs and flows with how we're playing. Chat's most fun when we're winning. And I view it as funny when we're losing. But I have an odd sense of humor most times.

Thanks all for the fun.

I left at halftime also. I logged back in after the game and it seemed pretty level headed but I can only take so much negativity. The Steelers played awful but some of the comments crossed the line.

With all that being said though, I look forward to the chat during the draft and next season. It's become a Sunday ritual.

It's kinda amusing that collectively we're a bunch of over reacting knuckle draggers.

But in reality, we probably aren't individually as bummed as we collectively seem to be.

It's natural to have a "We shoulda done this" or "We should do that" thought. And on their own, they're reasonable thoughts.

But when you compile everyone's reasonable thoughts into a crap pile of negativity, it becomes overwhelming.

If we pursued our collective thoughts, we'd shut down the Steelers and start from scratch after every loss. Heck, we'd do the same after every win.

It's natural Steeler Nation mob mentality.
