The content of the above breaks board rules.Well what, you douche. No one besides you and a$$ clown beats gives a F about attendance.

No, I have already proven they had the 3rd weakest # of attendance in the NFL. You say you "don't care" about attendance, yet are so fast to brag of it, even though it isn't even true. They averaged 57k. That's near the bottom of the league. If you don't care about it, then why brag about the 20-year waiting list (which is artificially generated)?It doesn't tell anyone anything. The NFL loves the Steelers and knows they bring huge ratings. They are considered a keystone franchise. Forbes rated the fan base the second in the NFL based on a multitude of criteria including attendance.
Why do you keep talking about them, then? They had more fans show up than did the Steelers. FACT. Why live in denial?
If the Jags want to spend their own money to give away thousands of tickets each week for some fictional attendance "wins", who cares. They continue to be a bad franchise and losers. Why we are even talking about them is beyond me.
He's talking about it because you brought it up...
No one is disputing attendance figures for the Steelers...
I guess the question is WHY is it important to YOU and why is it so important that you needed to make a post on it?
Your OP says the Jags fan are unfairly bashed... but by who?
..and when did Ghost brag about attendance figures? He bragged about Steeler bars, Forbes list and passion around the world. This thread stinks of troll odor.
As for me, over time I have become frustrated with several aspects of being a season ticket holder. Paying full price for the 2 crappy exhibition games every year is annoying. The Steelers "solution" this year was to "lower" the price for the exhibition games and increase the price for the regular season games, which ended up in a net increase for the price of this year's season tickets. Talk about trying to put lipstick on a pig. But I have also come to realize just how out of whack the Steelers ticket pricing really is. Tickets in row N, Section 539 cost the same as tickets in row A, Section 534, which last year was $88. So there is absolutely no consideration of the fact that the Section 539 seats are in the back of the end zone and the Section 534 seats are on the 50 yard line. Most teams now charge premium prices for seats between the 40 yard lines. Even worse, tickets in any row in the lower Sections, like 534, 535, etc only cost $100. So there is only a $12 price differential between upper deck sideline seats in the end zone and lower deck sideline seats on the 50 yard line. So I'm not a particularly happy camper these days.
After I proved my point, an attempt to move goal posts was pursued. "OH, well, J-ville is a much bigger city than is Pgh." I once again dispelled another half truth. The only reason J-ville is "bigger" is because the city planners made city limits an insane size, totally 747 sq. miles compared to Pgh's 58. The only American cities with more sq. miles all reside in Alaska, where there is nothing but massive sparse land. If one contained J-ville in the same 58 sq. miles of Pgh, Pgh would dwarf J-ville. Anyone not realizing that, for all intents and purposes, Pgh is a much larger city than is J-ville, obviously hasn't been to both cities. So, for those of us who smugly point to a "20 year waiting list" are just promoting more half truths. That stat would make one believe that Steeler fan attendance is among the league leaders. That is just not true. The actual attendance for Steeler games in in the bottom 5 of the entire league. I am attempting to reduce the arrogance of Steeler fans so we aren't embarrassing. We brag about our "20 year waiting list" while not realizing that it is artificially created and we are no where near among the highest in fan attendance. Does it mean we are bad fans or a bad franchise? Of course not, but let's deal in the truth, not perpetuate half truths.
