“Stay classy Steelers fans”

What? It was one individual, don’t group everyone together.

Fucking hate that team and city, bunch of LOSERS!

To be fair, on this very site, we have people wishing death upon the owner, GM, and Head Coach for cutting a guy.

So I mean they're not wrong...

I believe Bradshaw was also hung in effigy, in the early 70s, at Three Rivers. There is a picture of it on one of the NFL Films presentations (I looked, I couldn't find it on the Interwebs).

What makes it touchy is the history of lynchings in this country and the fact that Burflict is black. But it's possible or even likely that the intent of the hangers was not racial in nature, just an unfortunate side effect of their hatred.

People should probably think through their actions a bit more thoroughly before doing something like that. There probably was a more racially sensitive way of communicating the same hatred.

But sometimes the thought process is interrupted with beer.

Mmmhhhh, beer....

I get more steeler news from bengals forums than I do steeler sources. They talk about the Steelers all season long, regardless of whether we play each that week or not.

Bengals fans are the least self aware fan base I’ve seen, and that’s not an easy title to get.

Is it similar to the amount of Patriots news we get from Steelers fans?

I think the NE news cycle is in a down year here. Except for last week.

I would think that it's almost certain that this had nothing due to with anything other than hating Vontez Burfict....which is fairly common!
