I'm curious, where in PA does it go from being loyal to PIT to loyal to PHI?

1) Is there a hard divide, if so where, or a central no mans land, if so where?
-Or is it bisected by Balt/DC in the central

2) In the state where do you begin to get FSN PIT over Comcast or both?

3) Also were does it go from being Steelers, Priates, and Pens to Eagles, Phils, and Flyers?

4) Is there also a keystone state rivalary between the two since they battle for state supremecy or is it more on the PIT end and if so why?
Thanks.

Here in Harrisburg, Comcast gives us Philly sports mostly. We do get CW11 from NY as well. Nothing from Baltimore/DC.

It has been my experience Steeler Country extends west from OH to about mid-state/central PA. That's about where there's a blurring or mixing of loyalties between PGH & PHILLY. In Cambria County and points west it's heavy Steelers/Pens/Pirates fans. From around Centre County, Blair County east to about the Harrisburg area it has been my experience loyalties are mixed between the two. From around Harrisburg east it runs heavy in favor of PHILLY.

My county gets ComCast in several areas, except mine. I have Atlantic Broadband (used to be owned by TimeWarner). We get FSN PGH and really only see a Philly game if it's on ESPN or a major network.

I'm not sure of a rivalry between the teams. I know Steeler fans in Steeler Country DO NOT appreciate any other fans for any other teams. I think that's a bit ridiculous, but that's how it is.

In Philly there is more rivalary with NY/NJ sports teams that with teams from PGH.

Just to make things even more confusing, the Northeastern part of PA (Poconos and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre) have become more closely-aligned to NYC, on average, than to Philly.

Any New York team sucks! No matter what the sport. Ask any Philly people.
Pittsburgh? Where's that?
