Ok, I'll break this down as simplisticly as I can. There are an inordinate amount of Steeler fans in Lancaster Pa when in reality it should be Eagle, Skins or even NYJ or NYG top heavy. Reason? Early success of the Steelers. I hate going home and seeing Steeler jerseys in SE Pa. The same phenomena exists nationwide, especially with the Steelers - Bandwagon. I am done with these 2. I can only show them up so much until it's too much.

Even if what you say is true, and I'm not buying it, as I find it ridiculous, don't you think 40 years is a little long to be called a bandwagon jumper? I think after 30 years they can be considered a fan, otherwise they would have been all over San Fran in the day, and New England today. That's what a bandwagon jumper does. They pick a new team when their current team isn't doing well. I would expect you to know the difference, as I'm sure you became the world's biggest Raven fan in the early 2000's. 2001 maybe?

I speak the truth. I grew up there. I lived for Baltimore Colts football until they left town and was a season ticket holder at Ravens games since day 1. My first time in old Memorial Stadium was 1971 I am 46, you can do the math. Those that route for the Steelers now are not bandwagon fans (although some are and you know it), they are hardcore. But you have to ask youself why? Why when there are 4 other teams 50 - 150 miles closer are there an inordinate amount of Steeler fans in another city's marketing region? You miss my point. All I am saying is the older ones are bandwagon fans without a doubt, those that live in places like Lancaster who have no business other than their "jumping on the bandwagon" in the 70's when the Eagles were putrid. Those persons and now their sons are all Steeler fans in a region that should be 95% Eagle country. It's sickening. Quit fighting me on this, It's true. It's sad for a region when you see more Bus jerseys than McNabb. Plain and simple. Only one explanation and I've already told you. Done, over and out. We couldn't hold a meaningful conversation if we tried because you want to always be right. If the Steelers were bad for years and Cleveland won a few SB's, and you started to see Brown jerseys in Pittsburgh, what would that tell you? Bandwagon.

Fair enough. As long as we agree that the majority of the ones walking around today with jerseys on cannot be considered bandwagon jumpers, which is what I was pressing at the whole time.
