I think it all depends on who gets "paid off" as to who will win. Just like politics. LOL

Greetings,

The Steelers have such a broad level of appeal !

Here in the South this team is the favorite of so many ... regardless of their station in life .... from the proud construction worker to the local dentist and school teacher, from the high school student to the congressman !!!

The Steelers great appeal began during the team excellence of the Bradshaw era and remains intact today with the Big Ben era !

A tremendous team which represents a great level of "Pride" among so many American's !

Thank You / Lamar

The Steelers have been well run ever since Dan Rooney took over the reigns from his old man. This is the main reason for their success. The large fan base is typical of teams that have long term success (Yankees, Lakers, Cowboys, Duke basketball). Lot's of people across the country will adopt a team that seems to always win. Conversely, those teams also draw a lot of haters, and the Steelers rank with New England, and the Cowboys as the most hated teams in the league.

Second that. I cheer for anyone the Steelers play against. I am now a huge Bengals fan this season.

The fact is that Art Sr., the original owner, laid the foundation for his son Dan, who has done a terrific job, just like his father taught him.

Art Sr. was loved by all because he always took a genuine interest in his players and everyone in the organization. He was truly a down-to-earth-common-man and despised what he called "big-shots". Much like Jerry Jones and the like.
