Well, at least we can all agree that Fickell should be relieved of his duties.

Likewise, I apologize.  I probably overreacted to the Steeler fan-bashing party above and was tired of reading it by the time I got to your comment.  Consider it squashed my man.

Just responding with judgement and snark in kind.

Steeler fans in Ohio are the worst subset of sports fans this side of Michigan's fan base, so it pains me that another Ohio State boss got sentenced to years of hard labor there

I don't think I've ever agreed more with something said in a Skully.

Maybe you aren't one of the "miserable" ones, but you do seem to be one of those concerned with how Steelers fans became Steelers fans.  Do you have the same distaste for Buckeye fans living in Northern Michigan?  Or, is this just about really just about you disliking the franchise.  

Long-standing success brings a lot of fans with it.  That is just the way sports is.  It is the same with the Cowboys, 49ers, and Packers...and our Buckeyes.  And maybe the first generation that becomes such fans is "bandwagon" and maybe you have a legitimate gripe with them.  But most of that happened in the 70s for the Steelers.  If your dad or mom/aunt or uncle/grandpa or grandma is a Steelers fan, you get to be a fan too if you want.

I loved Mike Doss...still listed as my favorite player all time on my profile.  He always seemed to hit much bigger than his actual size.  

The guy was just a champion.  And, he got one at every level.

You are a good man.  Thanks for having my back.

Actually, they are probably from Eastern Ohio which has been historically a primarily Pittsburgh television market.  But you know...I am just glad I didn't have to end up a miserable Browns or Bengals fan that has to concern themselves about how someone else became a fan of another team.

Nor is all pizza created equal.  But, 99.9% of the time, I am going to eat some of both.
