    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?
    I'm pretty sure I saw somewhere that the Steelers will have a bye following the London game.

    I'm not a big fan of these games, but less disappointed with it being a road game.

    Any game abroad will have more travel headaches through customs, more press, more hype, more questions, more tickets for family/friends, more travel for family/friends.....etc. Clearly a distraction.

    Well....lets say it this way. Clearly it CAN be a distraction. IMO-it will be.

    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    if it is a 1 o'clock game eastern time, wouldn't that be like the vikings playing at 9 or 10 in the morning? If it is 1 in pittsburgh is it like 4 or 5 in the afternoon in the UK?

    They will probably not hate it because their significant others will all go and will probably love it. Keep mama happy and everyone is happy!!!!!!

    If you haven't been to London, you should go. It is expensive but it is a great city.

    These are grown men who are professionals making millions of dollars to play a game. Yeah, they should be able to suck it up and be professional about it. Who here doesn't have a boss who occasionally asks them to do things that they don't want to do? Do you let it effect your performance?
