But, like the Steelers, there is still a lot of room for improvement. We can up the ante a bit if each poster tries to raise the level of discourse with more reflection, thoughtful analysis, and creative suggestions. In short, less flaming, harping, and crying, and instead, more open-minded polite, yet spirited and intelligent conversations. I don't expect a utopian football discussion, but we could make our commiserations more fruitful and perhaps even find a few silver linings.

    Thanks for reading,

    So when it is bad like it is now, you would rather not live in reality? Try to find silver linings and be positive when the team is horrible? Ok. Cool.

    He saying that when the team sucks like we have been, we can still act like reasonable human beings rather than whiny little douches. It's more worthwhile to attempt to analyze the team's shortcomings in a well-reasoned manner and provide constructive criticisms regarding what went wrong via civilized discourse rather than devolving into a TribLive flame war after every loss. That's all. There are other Steeler forums where dramatic bitchfests are more welcome.

    I discharged a dribble of my perfectly aged IC Light onto the keyboard while reading this thoughtful and heart-felt ode to the fine gentlemen who suit up for our beloved Black n Gold.

    I shall wave the pink terrible towel in tribute to this divine team regardless of the outcome on Sunday evening.

    I hope to catch the vapors of a victory but will show displeasure in the most fashionable manner if we come up a tad short.

    As a general rule of thumb around here, the fans will typically post as well as the team plays. The real fix to the board is for us to just play better.
