You can probably ask any Steelers fan why they love the Steelers and you will get a few common answers.
1.Â They play hard.
2.Â There are no divas on the team, it’s all about winning, not individual records.
3.Â There’s a sense of loyalty and dedication not just from the fans but from the team members themselves. (In other words, not everyone sells out because of $$)
4.Â There’s always consistency.Â You know what you are going to get, even if it’s in a “building” year.Â The Coaches are always top notch and obviously, they stick around.Â (Only 3 in 40 years)
5.Â There is great respect for the Rooney family and their ownership of the team.
Yesterday, I read this article in the NYT and it just added another level to my loving the Steelers.Â There aren’t a lot of owners like this in the League.Â And the loyalty and dedication, along with creating that family, transcends fm the team out to the fans.Â If you don’t like the Steelers, read this, you will at least have respect for them.
Tell me why you love (or hate) the Steelers!
