    I think we're going to be embarrassed Sunday night

    and it won't be if the team plays like crap, it will be because of the number of Bengals fans that Steelers fans allowed inside of Heinz. Sorry to say, but our once greatest fan base in the league is no more.

    Being a fan is supporting your team, win or lose.

    not when it's cold and the team is playing like trash.

    I actually have no problem with it because it shows the owners this isn't acceptable.

    It's hard to judge why a fan sells their tickets. I'd like to think if I was living in Pgh and could not go to the game I'd give them to friends/fans or try to sell them to fans. But maybe the person bought them this summer and has since been laid off. A couple of hundred $$ gets your kids Christmas presents or a couple of trips to the grocery store to stock up, so you do whatever it takes to unload them.

    Plus, it's easy for me to sit in my house, under my insanely warm Steelers fleece blanket, watching the game. Heading to a stadium when the temps will be in the 20's going down to the teens to watch a team that doesn't appear to care all that much and puts forth a half-a$$ed effort quite a bit is a tall order.

    Problem is, the owners are getting their money because the games are sold out. All it shows is that Steelers fans are spoiled, fair weather fans and not the greatest fans in the league.

    maybe... or they want fair weather to watch a team who is 5-8.

    I lived 15 minutes from the stadium for 21 years and never had a desire to go to a game after November. Every time I thought about it I walked outside and changed my mind.

    Afraid of a little cold? I would have thought that living in Pittsburgh with all of it's crappy year round weather would have toughened you up. Yinzers are getting soft apparently.

    But if you go to the game you get to see Antonio Brown after a loss, smiling and yucking it up and exchanging jerseys with AJ Green.

    He exchanged a jersey with Calvin Johnson after a win, so why not a loss. Every team/player and coaches are good sportsman with the exception of the Ravens Hairball/, Pats/ Bill and the other Hairball. We as fans are the poor sports.

    Did that bother you as much as it bothered me? For some reason Brown, after finding out he stepped out of bounds, had this huge smile on his face as he was crossing the back of the end zone and it really pizzed me off. I'm just a fan and it crushed me so I couldn't believe as a player he was all smiles about it.
