Meeting one such as those mentioned, there's NO WAY that I would stoop so low as to embarrass another human being like that just for a sport.
That's just childish on your part (the one who started this thread) to post such a thing.
Can I buy you a ticket to a game next year and have you dress up in the opponent's colors? I'd like to introduce you then to some REAL Stiller fans out in the parking lot.....
Disagree that the coaches and players "deserve" better simply because of recent successes (doesn't mean I support booing them or harassing them around town either). This is a team that had a core group of players capable of winning Superbowls from the end of the Cowher era until now. That window is all but closed now. In another year or so, only Ben will remain and we have to hope we'll be able to rebuild in time to reach another SB while he still is capable of playing.
Yeah, we've had some successes. We've also had incredible failures. Missing the playoffs the year following a SB win in 2006 and 2009 and now this year's debacle. The Steelers can do better that this and they should be held accountable as an organization (management, coaches and players) when they squander a season like they did this one. Injuries were a big part of it, but so were mental mistakes, bad attitudes and poor leadership. I expect better and that is one of the reasons why I am proud to be a Steelers fan.
Every time I see this thread it makes me chuckle. It kinda reminds me of the kid in this commercial for some reason.
The Steelers finished the 2006 season 8-8 a year removed from winning the Superbowl and they were healthier that year then they were this year. Should fans of gone up to Cowher and the players and booed them to their face?
