No a-wipe, worse as in record. Follow the text string dippy. Worse as in 2-2 (yes like the Ravens) or 1-3. Even when you are set up to be funny you blow it.

You mean become a bandwagon Steeler fan because of their earlier 70's sucess so a whole town like, let's say, Lancaster, Pa just 50 miles from Philly, 90 from DC and 150 from both NY teams becomes Steeler Nation East when Pissburg is over 220 miles away? That kind of fan? No thanks, not a bandwagon jumper here. No, I'll grow up following my local team, not the best team in the NFL and then route for them in good years. LOL, Steeler fans are puking pathetic.

Wow. You just said an entire town jumped onto a bandwagon because that specific team dominated 40 years ago. Well, that must make every Brown fan on the planet a bandwagon jumper because of how good Jim Brown played.

What a jackas#.

Hey dipschit, the Browns have a team. My point is a city that is outside the traditional suburban area but close enough to route for that team, chooses another team 200 miles away because that team was so much better than the Eagles, Skins, Jets and Giants in the 70's and now those folks who had kids pass it to them too. The Browns have a team you dick.

Amen Steagle. I think GHT is in need of some bannage from this site. Bannage because he's an idiot. If he wants to talk about Martha Stewart, he can go to the Martha Stewart forum and talk about it. But he probably goes to Martha's forum and talks about football....

Did I say every Browns fan in Cleveland?

I'm pretty sure I said in the world, idiot. And your point is ridiculously stupid. I know many people whom's team allegiance differs from that of their parents. And your overall point of the entire city of Lancaster Pennsylvania becoming Steelers fans just because they were good in the 70's (not to say that they are not good now) is also stupid. Why wouldn't they have chosen to be Raiders, Cowboys, Vikings, or Rams fans? Those teams were all good in the 70's, and they are all not close to Lancaster Pennsylvania either. Hell, using your logic, everybody on the planet should be a Packers fan because they were the best team of the early years, and since most of those fans had kids to pass their love of the "Pack" onto, extensionally, you GHT, should be a Packer fan. I certainly wish that was the way it is, because then I wouldn't have to school you like this in front of perfect strangers on the internet.

I also don't care if you are a racist and nobody else will reply to you, because I'll continue to crush your posts time and time again.

Lancaster is in Pa. Pittsburgh is in Pa, Steelers had a good run in the 70's hence the affinity. I see plenty of GB, Viking, Cowboy and SF jackets too......everywhere. Which proves my point. Lancaster, Harrisburg and York has a predominantly Steeler fan base who have no reason to be Steeler fans other than the glory days of the 70's that it's local "states" team enjoyed. Now those fathers have passed the right down. These fans are hardcore fans and love their team, but in reality, it's because 55 year old dad rammed Pitt Steel BS down their throats as a kid. I saw it myself as COLT fan growing up there. Arsewipe. I know what I am talking about.

Ummmm I'm afraid you know nothing about what you are talking about.... Just because someone does not live in Pittsburgh, or Lancaster, or Philly doesn't mean that they cannot be a Steeler fan.... I am a big fan of the Colts too does that make me a bandwagon jumper? Don't think so.
