Not me. As long as his success doesn't hurt the Steelers in any way I would wish him well in gratitude for bringing us our 6th Lombardi, and for everything else he did for us. Now, if he's playing us, or for a team we need to lose, then no warm fuzzies at those times. But, I still have (diminishing ) hopes that he'll stay in the B&G).
You guys really feel that way? You really do hate Franco, Joey Porter, Kevin Greene, Woodson and others because they put on another uniform after wearing the B&G?
Related question ... what about Foote, BMac, Gay, Randle-El, etc. ... did you hate them when they left? And did you start loving them again (apologies to Merle Haggard) the day they came back? Hey, Plex is in that boat right now ... where does he stand now that he's back?
We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

I just can't flip a switch and not give a damn because a player leaves. As long as they aren't playing against us I'm still a fan.

I'm in the camp saying that I'll believe it when it I hear it from Silverback himself. Don't see the need to believe 2nd hand hearsay from a friggin Bungle.
I dont hate, but I DO NOT wish them success. Because the greater THEIR success the worse the decision to let him go.
Hey NOBODY was more pro sign Harrison than me.
But now that he is gone I dont want him to suceed elsewhere.
It would only make me more sick that he was let go.
You mention Franco. I was GLAD he struggled in Seattle, because it meant WE MADE THE RIGHT CALL.
I was a fan of Franco THE STEELER, could care less about Franco the Seahawk.
Ditto Harrison, Wallace, Lewis, or any other former Steeler.
I WANT to be wrong if it means the team made the right move
I really liked the guy. But he was gone soooo long, he didn't feel like a Steeler. Guys like Franco or Webby leaving for another season to hang on didnt bother me cause they were so short and they were hanging on too long. But Woodson bugged me that he left with so much left.
