    Default Disappointed

    Yes, I'm disappointed in the Steelers but I'm more disappointed in the fans. What the hell happened to the Steelers "faithful"? Yes, we suck this season. These are imposters and I'd like to know what happened to my real team. But to hear people say well at least my Sunday's are free now is BULL ****! So you're gonna go and be like the lowly bungles fans and stop watching? It's painful to watch, I know. I watch the games. The Steelers are supposed to have the most loyal fan base and to hear people wanna bail on them really makes me sad and upset. Just stop. Take it for what it is because in the off season we'll all be complaining that we just wanna watch some Steelers football. I *****, whine and complain before, during and after every single stupid nonsense loss but you can bet your *** I'll be doing the same thing before the next game. I'll never give up on them and neither should any of you.

I can't tell you how badly I wanted out of there." Denver rookie QB John Elway, on Jack Lambert, after Lambert and the Steelers knocked Elway out of his first game as a pro (1983).

    Just because one doesn't go out of his/her way to set aside time and sit down on Sundays coming up, as normal, and watch the remaining games doesn't mean they're not a fan.

    It's almost analagous to watching a relative of yours become an addict. You don't want to watch their downward spiral and become too involved because it hurts, but that doesn't mean you don't love them.

    But you also don't give up on them! You wanna compare it to that well then let's compare it to this too. I watched my Grandpa suffer with cancer every day for 2 years but I didn't say **** it and quit going to see him and give up on him.

    Yes and again, just because someone doesn't want to watch anymore games this season doesn't mean that they're not fans or are giving up on the team.

    I went through what you did and just because I didn't go to the hospital or nursing home for a week or so doesn't mean I gave up.

    Here is the difference. Your grandpa is a human life with a horrible disease. You needed to spend time with him and be there for him because he might not be around tomorrow.

    It's safe to say the Steelers will be around tomorrow. So while the Steelers have given up on the fans by losing to the Chiefs, Raiders and Browns in less then 4 weeks why does it surprise you that the fans are giving up on them?

    I hear you and fully agree with you.

    Steelers fans are bad though when they're winning so it's doubly bad when they're losing.

    The blessing for me though is, many in my area have jumped off the bandwagon and are pulling on their Colts and Saints jerseys.

    I not only love the Steelers but I love football, so I'll be watching tomorrow and I'll be recording and watching the remaining Steelers games. It won't be long until there won't be any football. In addition I can remember the days when it was hard to just watch a Steelers game if they weren't on Monday night or in the playoffs. I pay a lot of money to get to make sure I never miss a game and I would never dream of not watching them play. This team has given me much enjoyment over the years, many playoff games and I just watched them win a SB last year. Some fans need to be a little more appreciative of what they've got.
    I probably won't be discussing them as much because negativity puts me in a bad mood and it's Christmas time and I prefer to be in a good mood.

    Well now that the NFL has moved the Packers game to prime time...the announcers can have a field day.....while we as fans watching....there will be no more pressure ....to win. Just not much to root for either.....could care less if they play the spoiler this week.

    It will be hard not to view the following game as important...we sure don't wanna be swept by the Ravens?????

    I'll be watching no matter what.

    The Steelers are bigger than Mike "The Colossal Bull****ter" Tomlin and his entire coaching staff. They came and will go, but my Steelers will remain and so will I.

    No, this definition is more appropriate for this thread:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mccarthyism

    ...the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence....The term is also now used more generally to describe reckless, unsubstantiated accusations, as well as demagogic attacks on the character or patriotism of adversaries.

    Playing a little loose with an assumption there, aren't ya?

    My post was meant to be both instructional and motivational. It was not meant as any type of accusation towards any specific individual(s).
