Who talks about World Championships? Some of those wins by Green Bay weren't even a one game playoff, they were given out to the team with the best record.

For 90% of the people watching football today, the last 45 years of the Super Bowl era are what they remember and in those 45 years the Steelers have won 6 out of the 7 Super Bowls they have played in. Don't be jealous of the Steelers' success over the last 45 years.

Fit in? F off! Instead of people trying to dumb themselves down to the level of barbaric neanderthals watching grown men toss a ball for millions of dollars, why don't they try actually talking about something intelligent for a change? Try tossing in a couple of words with more than 3 syllables or a grunt, and turn off the testosterone-laden crap on the telly.

Yea, dummies, turn off the tv! Then put on your high heels/spandex panties; strut up and down the "Hershey Highway" and see how many of your 9 syllable boyfriends blow the horn at you! Then enter the women's restroom and squat on your 9" dildo! GO STEELERS/GO PACKERS! Ah, IMAGINE if you WERE a football fan, you MOST CERTAINLY would be cheering for the PACKERS! Most especially since they have cheese on their HEAD!
Just the facts

It's nice to know you are familiar with NFL history. It's true that the Packers first 3 Championships were awarded under the then existing rule that the team with the best record was crowned champ. Now an 18-0 record (such as the Patriots had recently) is discounted. The winner of the last game is the Champion. 9 of the Packers record 12 Championships were under the playoff system.

I'm not jealous of the Steelers success over the last 45 years, but it seems that you are jealous of the Packers success over the last 90 years. I find that strange from a Steelers fan. The Steelers franchise is the fifth oldest in the NFL. Art Rooney started the franchise in 1933. Are you ignoring the first 40 years of Steeler history simply because the Steelers didn't win any Championships then? Disrespect the Steelers if you want to. It won't change the fact that the Packers have a record 12 NFL Championships.

BTW 5 of the Packers Championships were during the 1960s. 4 of the Steelers were during the 1970s. If you encourage NFL fans to use arbitrary dates to distinguish NFL Championships, what will prevent people from saying that the 1970s don't count either? After all, most people alive today weren't even born when the Steelers won their first 4. It was a long time ago. Should those Championships count?

The FACT is the football that we are watching today and the football that 90% of the viewers are familiar with is defined by the Super Bowl era. That era is 45 years of Super Bowl games and the fact is that Pittsburgh has won 6 of the 44 games played so far. It's got nothing to do with arbitrary dates or discounting history....it has to do with what 90% of the people watching the game know and remember....this is Super Bowl 45 and this is the Super Bowl era. 90% of the viewers don't care the Steelers started in 1933 or that they were called the Steagles at one point. 90% of the viewers don't care the first 3 Packers championships were based on records. 90% of the the viewers could care less what happened prior to 1950....all they hear is this is Super Bowl 45 and this is the Super Bowl era.

The NFL Champion talks about world championships because the NFL Champ is the world champion, with the exception of Super Bowls III and IV. The winner of the CFL, arena league and any other professional football league isn't talking about themselves when they refer to the world champion.

If you are really familiar with NFL history you know why Super Bowls III and IV are the exceptions.

I think the main reason most people discount championships from different sports that happened in early years is because the level of competitiveness wasn't nearly what it is today. In 1960's when the Packers were winning those championships, there were only 13 and 14 teams in the league. When the Steelers won their first there were 24. If you're the best of 13, it's not nearly as impressive as being the best of 24. Now there's 32! I make this same argument about hockey. The Montreal Canadians won most of their Stanley cups when there were only 6 teams. Big deal! How many have they won lately? Now that's not to diminish their history and tradition, just like the Packers, they have a great tradition but not as champions.

The fewer teams is actually an argument that the level of competion was GREATER back then. How does the LEVEL of competition increase by a huge expansion in the number of players? When the Packers won many Championships, many players that would be starters today were sitting on the bench. I agree that it may be more difficult to win Championships with more teams, but the level of competion has undoubtedly gone DOWN! The increase in the number of teams also makes it easier to establish a dynasty. Until the modern era few teams ever won more than a couple Championships in a decade.

I agree that the Packers and Steelers both have great traditions. Neither should be diminished. Greatness is greatness in any age.
