    Who cares what Peter King thinks? Discussion boards are where opinionated fans who can't get enough of football go. I think it says a lot that a sportwriter goes to a Steeler discussion forum in the first place.

    I've noticed most sports writers and tv "analysts" don't do their homework and know less about the NFL than your average poster here. King should stick around. He might learn something. Maybe that is why he is here in the first place.

    There's a series on HBO called 'Boardwalk Empire'. Greatest series ever. It takes place in the Prohibition Era in Atlantic City where people go for their booze. The guy that runs the town (Steve Buscemi) is named Enoch "Nucky" Thompson. He's half politician and half gangster. Since it takes place in the 20s/30s, the cars he rides around in look similar to yours.

    Great show. Never miss it.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Our behavior online is so embarrassing that a columnist for Sports Illustrated is calling us out in front of the world.

    I can see where he's coming from. If I weren't a fan and looked at these things I'd think the same.

    Peter King needs fired...his writing sucks! He only got hired due to the Reilly Rule!

    Wow, you beat me to it.....
    Over the last 3 years, how many complete Steeler games do you think Peter King had time to watch?

    So.....what screen name is Peter King going under around here then?


    He's half right. Steelers fans are prone to the odd over reaction. But that's just part of having football in the soul, Chadman suspects. No doubt every team's messege board has it's share of nutjobs, wackos & the Flippy's.

    Only 'scary' part is when messege board fans turn into messege board hero's & can't see that everyone has a point of view.

    But from what Chadman can tell, that's just being 'American', isn't it?
