    Anytime.

    BTW, if you are implying that I am not giving these opinions any weight (And I think you are, you clever guy, you!), I am happy to tell you that that is not at all what I am doing...

    I am merely pointing out that a great many posters give their own opinions far too much weight, while conveniently ignoring the many differing, well thought out opinions offered by other posters who are at least as reasonable or, in most cases, more so...

    Sigh...
    OK

    No one is forcing you to read it.

    If I can't complain about the Steelers here, then why does the forum even exist?

    Our CBs suck.

    JJ's biceps aren't big enough.

    Keeping Landry Jones dooms the entire roster to mediocrity.

    Tomlin is a figurehead.

    And....

    LeBeau is too old to coach effectively and his defense is too complex.

    If I think of any other scintillatingly intelligent answers, I will add them...

    Thank you and good day.

    You've got it well-covered there, Slap!

    The better question is this:

    Once they have posted their concerns, why do they feel the need to continually post the same concern, over and over, so on and so on?

    Because the Steelers did not address their specific concern? Take it up with the team...no representative of the team reads this board...

    Continuing to post the same thing over and over serves no purpose other than to stifle football discussion...

    Exactly.
    you should only be able to post warm fuzzy feelings about the team over and over. now that is good football discussion.
