    Steelers playing the Vikings in London in 2013

    This per Ed Bouchette and Jamison Hensely via Twitter. They'll be the "road" team, so don't worry about losing a home game.

    Pittsburgh, PA: City of Champions.

    It definitely bothers me less that we are the visiting team.


    It still sucks though!

    The league was too short-sighted regarding using the bye week to help soften the impact of a too-quick Sunday-to-Thursday turnaround for an extra night of primetime TV all season long...hopefully they will learn their lesson and at least schedule the bye around mandated international travel.

    Also, wasn't Dan Rooney trying to work something out to have us playing at Croke Park in Dublin in the near future? Why schedule us at Wembley in London now if that may be just around the bend as well?


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    maybe if Ta'amu is still on the team he can drive the team bus while they're in London.

    after all, Ta'amu has experience driving on the left hand side of the road...

    I hate these games. Major distraction in the midst of the regular season.

    Why? It's just another game. Maybe the travel is a little longer, but it doesn't need to be a distraction...
