    Side note, I'm done watching ESPN nowadays because of their ridiculous lack of integrity, so I may be out of the loop on stuff like that. Their publications are still okay, but they are seemingly only interested in fabricating stories for ratings or presenting opinions to incite a crowd on the network. It's sad.
    Yeah I agree they are turning into the TMZ of the sporting world.

      Patriots fans are far worse than any fans in the NFL. Biggest bunch of losers and crybabies going.

        Every time I watch a game at Gillette Stadium, I never fail to laugh my *** off at their 16-0 Regular Season banner. If I'm a Patsie fan (God forbid), I'm begging Kraft to take that piece of crap down.

You should see the conspiracy theories they had after the ravens won. Giants fans get mad fast too but we don't say it's fixed. Also the eagles obviously. The sad part is eagles fans act like spoiled steelers fans which is weird since they've had 0 success.
          Dude I couldn't disagree with you more. I've had more Steelers fans come up to me shaking my hand - some buying me a beer - because I'm a Giants fan. Why? Because we beat the Patsies twice in the SB.

                You're right, Sam. You'll find some obnoxious Steeler fans, but in general, and especially among older fans, there's a lot of history and respect, as well as a marriage between the Mara's and Rooneys. The two families are quite close. So, any ****** Steeler fans you see are probably ignorant of those facts, or just don't care.

                  Well I live in the heart of it all and these boys are far from humble. Hell you can on steeler forums right now and see how many trolls are on it. They hate everyone. They think every D player is a wuss. They hate Ben( even though right now I think he's better than Brady and Peyton nowadays). Most of them don't know a thing about the 70s.

                    Those are probably newer fans with no sense of their team's history. All the steeler fans I know are very respectful towards the Giants for the reasons SamHuff70 mentioned.

                    It extends to the teams themselves as well, such as this image when Dwyer got hurt on a return last season:

                    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                      That makes sense. Although I recommend never going on a forum if your a steelers fan. Most are actually ravens pretending to be steelers( literally). They're mostly trolls. I get that. I don't question the team. They're the most consistently successful franchise in NFL history. They draft people from penn state and Pitt not because they're good but just to give back to the community. Not to mention the giants are literally family related to them. But I have one rule. If the QB of a team shows any promise, you should support him through anything, cause he's the most important player. The dolphins, lions, and bengals have no idea how lucky they are now that they have QBs. So when the very idea that the majority of these guys hate on a 2 time SB winning QB disgusts me. Ryan Clark even said they were spoiled. When I was little, the steelers were my favorite. My dad and pap watched the immaculate reception live. They lived through the 70s. I considered Hines ward, Ben, and Troy as family. JPP, Eli, and Cruz are my new and true family, but it doesn't mean I can't feel bad for Pittsburgh.

                        It's not clever at all -- especially when you aren't the last team standing. It's something a 5 year old would say.

                          NOT. EVEN. CLOSE.

                          Not disrespecting the Steelers but they didn't even make the playoffs one single time for their first 40 years. They were consistent cellar-dwellers for decades.

                          That title has to go to the Packers (13 championships, multiple dynasties, last team to win 3 in a row)... Bears and Giants belong in the conversation. All of those 3 have been competitive in almost every era. Pittsburgh belongs in the SB era conversation but even their success is contained in 2 of 5 SB decades.

                            Oh don't give me that crap. Where were the bears in the 60s, 70s, and 90s? Where was the pack in the 70s and 80s? Where were the giants in the 60s, 70s, and 90s? I'm getting sick of people acting like the pre SB wins actually count. The pack doesn't have 13 championships. They have NFC/AFC championships and 4 REAL championships. The fact that the AFL had its own championship obviously shows that the NFL championships don't count.

                            MULTIPLE DYNASTIES? HA! The only way the pack ever had a dynasty is if the bills going to 4 SBs is a dynasty cause that's all they did. Win NFC/ AFC championships. The 2 teams that went to the championship weren't even the actual best teams in the league. It was basically CFB. A bunch of people debating who should go. No playoff system. Why do the NFL championships count but the AFL doesn't? Face it. SBs are the only things that count. The fact that the NFL merged at all means the old ones have no merit. Congratulations pack. You WENT to the SB 9 times.

                            I'm a giants fan but even I know the old ones are not the same stature as SBs. There wouldn't have been a merge if they did matter.

                            And no this isnt the same as baseball. There wasn't 2 MLB leagues that merged like the NFL did.

                            Next you'll tell me is that the lions and browns are better than the steelers, cowboys, and niners. Oh the browns being bad after the merge counts but the packs doesn't?

                            The steelers actually played the game to get their rings. The pack got lucky cause the boarding room felt bad for them. SBs are harder. The system actually works to make sure the 2 teams left are actually the best. A SB should be worth 10 old ones.

                            Not taking anything from the players and coaches. That's different.

                              I am with you.


                              I don't live in the NY area and for a long time I spent my Sundays in sports bars among fellow football fans. I never liked going to sports bars where just 1 group of fans would hang. The Steeler fans always represented well, and were among the best guys to have a beer and a laugh with. They have a lot in common with the Giants you know:

                              -Kate Mara, and little sis Rooney
                              -They hate the Cowboys for the 1996 Superbowl, among other numberous obnoxiouses.
                              - They dislike the Eagles as cross state rivals, and for making outsiders thing all of the state of Penn is like what you see at an Eagles game.
                              - The 2 teams owners have been friends for a long time.
                              - and lastly, Kate Mara. Because it is my post and I get to put her 2x.

                                Oh, so you're one of "those." The NFL has been around since 1920. The 8 team AFL merged with it in 1970. The first AFL-NFL Championship (Super Bowl) was in 1966.

                                Where were the Steelers in the 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s? Certainly not in the playoffs. But guess what, they were in the league and they were playing. The Steelers were one of the league's worst franchises for their first 40 years.

                                Since the ABA merged with the NBA, please tell me which NBA titles no longer count. I guess all those Celtics championships get thrown out by your logic.

                                As for the Bears -- playoff appearences in 60s/70s/90s: 1963, 1977,1979, 1990,1991, 1994
                                As for the Packers -- playoff appearences in 70s/80s: 1972, 1982
                                As for the Giants -- playoff appearences in 60/s/70s/90s: Three straight championship games (1961, 1962, 1963), 1990 (Super Bowl win), 1993, 1997 (and Super Bowl loss in 2000)

                                The Pack does have 13 championships even if you stomp your feet and deny it.


                                Even the NFL itself acknowledges it on its site -- I'll dig up a link.

                                I'll just leave it by saying you are ignorant, as in the dictionary definition, meaning uneducated. Did you ever stop to think why the trophy is named after Vince Lombardi? His Packers won 5 championships in 7 seasons, including the first two Super Bowls. 61-62-65-66-67. That's the very definition of a dynasty, and no other since has reached those heights. Not the Steelers, not the Cowboys, not the 49ers, not the Patriots. They're also the only team to 3-peat as champions, and they've done it twice. 29-30-31 and 65-66-67.

                                More ignorance. From 1920-1932 the team with the best standing won the championship. The Giants won in 1927 this way. From 1933-1965 there were two divisions and the two teams that won the divisions played in the championship game, which is a playoff system. No ambiguity, no CFB ranking system.

                                Further, there was no AFL until 1960. So how is the NFL supposed to compete with a league that doesn't exist? How can the Giants' 1956 Championship be discounted as an "NFC Championship" when the other league wouldn't even exist for 4 more years? And in fact, the other league would be created because of the 1958 Championship between the Giants and Colts. Do you need a history lesson on that too? (Crib notes version: That game put pro football on the map and people wanted new NFL teams to spread across the country. When the NFL said "no", they started their own league -- the AFL).

                                By the way, baseball operated the same way until 1969 -- the team with the best standing of each league played the other league's champion in the World Series. So do those old World Series no longer count either?

                                Several reasons. The AFL merged into the NFL. The AFL only awarded 6 stand-alone AFL championship titles (1960-1965). The NFL had awarded 46 (1920-1965).

                                I disagree. The teams played. They tried to make the postseason and win championships. If the team won a championship in its system of the day, how can it be invalid? I'm not for erasing/ignoring 45 years of NFL history. We don't do that in any other sport.

                                The Giants don't agree with you.

                                More ignorance... The AL and NL were two rival leagues operating under the MLB umbrella, but until very recently they kept their business operations quite separate (including league offices and umpiring crews).

                                Really? Because the exact opposite could be argued. Up until 1965 the two best teams played in the championship game. In 1965, that meant a 2-in-14 chance of making the playoffs (14%). Today it's a 12-in-32 chance (38%). How does having 1/3 of the league making the playoffs, and having a 3x greater chance of making the playoffs, ensure that the two teams left are actually the best?
