    We're not allowed to be upset because some think the future of this team some how gets a pass because of our past......

    I am not a fairweather fan. I will watch every minute of the Steeler games the rest of the year regardless of the record

    There's no other way for fans to be heard than to not show up for a game. Let the Rooney's know the current team's performance isn't acceptable. How awesome would it be to watch the Steelers on TV and see and empty Heinz Field?

    Seriously, the NFL rapes the city to use tax dollars to build their stadium and they should owe it to the local fans to at least put a competitive product on the field.

    Or if you just can't stay away cause you love it too much, how bout wearing your McCutchen or Crosby jerseys to the rest of the games this season. It would be totally awesome if all the fans showed up in all Pirates or Pens gear to the rest of the Steelers games.

    C'Mon fellars. Boycott for the rest of us. I'd do it if I had tickets Just go tailgate during the game. You'll probably have more fun that way anyways.
    And that would accomplish what? Make the Rooney's fire everyone? Make major trades? Oops not MLB so can't do that!

    BTW--giving money to the NFL is a far better use of those dolars than letting the Pittsburgh politicians use it at their discretion. At least the NFL brings money into the city.
    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!

    Yeah, this team could use a little love from the fans I think. We have plenty of guys who are trying. To shun them would be wrong I think.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
