    Bernard Pollard could show some class by having his lawyers (or KC's lawyers) contact these people and not allow them to use his name.

    I sent a note to The Chiefs and asked them to look into it.

    I would ask that we all do this. Will it help? I don't know - But it's better than doing nothing.

    You can do it here:

    http://www.kcchiefs.com/contact/

    IF anyone know's Pollards agents name and contact info, let me know I'll ask him to contact the site as well.

    I will say that I've seen a fair amount of anti-Peyton shirts that I thought were stupid. They weren't celebrating an injury though, that's pretty bad. What do you expect from Steelers fans though? The organization is good, but the fans are inbred, union-town dipsh!ts.

    EDIT: and arrogant!

    Hey guys, get used to it.

    Here in "the 'burgh", the feeling of inferiority is beyond pale. Even when they won SB XL, it had the "but we didn't beat the Patriots" feel. Several of the local writers admitted this after last years game. Also, the Pats are the measuring stick for their team.

    Can their "stars" beat our backups?

    What I love is that they think they have some kind of rivalry with us. To me the Steelers are just one of those pretty good teams we beat fairly easily every year. Not sure how they think they have a "rivalry" with us but if it makes them feel relevant I guess so be it...But we only have 2 rivals: the Jets and the Colts and only one of those teams has earned it.

    Exactly

    The "rivalry" comes from the fact they have been an opponent in big games. They also detest the losing at Heinz Field.

    I try to tell people here the losing could be worse. Look at the Rams after SB XXXVI or Cincy after the 2006 beating at home. Both franchises have never been the same after those two debacles.

    They get even matter when I say it's a testament to the organization that the Steelers can take a constant beating and remain a competitive organization.

    I didn't mean that as an arrogant statement either, it honestly always catches me off guard. Before 2004 Yankees fans used to try to say that they didn't consider the Sox to be their "rivals" because they never got the better of them. This was obviously just arrogant trash talk, since to us, the Jets play that role now and most of us consider them rivals anyway.

    But I always forget that the Steelers fans think this way and occasionally I'll be around some Steelers fans or something and here a comment like, "well we're big time rivals" and it throws me every time. I suppose the Pats have beaten them in some big games, but they aren't in our division nor do they ever present a legitimate obstacle to the Pats. Likewise, as a Celtics fan I wouldn't consider the Pistons to be our "rivals." That may develop now, but it certainly wasn't the case just because the Pistons always won the East. I guess I just really don't get it. Maybe it's the fact that their only real rivals, the Browns haven't provided them with any sort of challenge whatsoever, and they don't have that comparably-matched team elsewhere in the AFC that they exchange wins and losses with.

    As I said in the other thread about this shirt. The thing I find to be really sick, is the fact that they are selling this t-shirt in kids sizes too. Its always classy to teach your kids to enjoy someone elses misfortune:mad:

    Someone posted a link to one of their forums a while ago, wow, what a sad, bitter group of fans. Of course, I've seen about the same from Bills and Jets fans, so what are you gonna do?

    Funny thing is, all of these fanbases keep saying every year how they'll beat the Patriots. Yet they keep losing. Don't worry though, Steelers and Bills fans, you can always cling to those regular season victories you had several years ago.

    As someone mentioned before, only the Colts have earned the right to really be called a rivalry. The Chargers, Jets, and Steelers are nobodies to the Patriots.

    Booing the little Patriots girl during the Colts-Chargers game and a few obnoxious homers aside, Colts fans really aren't that bad.

    Well, when you get owned year in and year out by the same team, you get real bitter....as this shows. I despise Steeler fans more than any other.

    Actually, I'm not imbred and I'm not a dipstick (modified)

    I am arrogant. Very Very Arrogant. So I'll let that one go and will take it as a compliment.


    Are some Steelers fans jackholes...sure...so are some Broncos Fans, some Raiders Fans, some Cowboys Fans, some Eagles Fans, some Jets Fans, and some Patriots Fans. We all have our black sheep fans.

    Real Fans Rise Above.

    One thing that is hard for Steelers fans to understand is that we have issues with just about everyone. Look at our "rivalries" and who we have issues with:

    AFC East- it's a division

    Baltimore- last year's game with after game comments
    Pittsburgh- AFCCG's
    Cincy- blowouts in Cincy
    Cleveland- not that much but chippy play at the end of last year's game

    Indy- obvious
    Jax- Dirty play/ playoff games
    Tenn- dirty play/ Rodney 2006
    Houston- not much

    SD- rivalry
    Denver- we lose/ playoffs
    KC- TB injury
    Oakland- RM/"tuck rule"

    The NFC is also issue filled.

    There is the old saying- Both teams must think it's a rivalry for it to be a rivalry.

    it's so true. Over the last few years the Pats have beaten everyone, and you don't realize until some random team pops up just how mad the fans still are about it. I'd add the Redskins as a perfect example of this; I didn't hear any fans down here (I live in DC) have a problem with us at all last year until we completely crushed them. Now we are public enemy #1 to them, while I couldn't give a shyte about them.

    Yeah, my comment was a bit too harsh, I agree. It's just that a lot of the Steelers fans I've encountered are very arrogant. The other stuff was just immature shots ;)

    I do have to say though, there's plenty of Pats fans that are just the same (even worse). They're insanely irritating to me, so I can see how they must infuriate other teams.

    As a season ticket holder in a town with mostly transplants, I get used to fans of opposing teams innundating Cardinals games. By and large, it's mildly annoying.

    Last year's Steelers game, though, was about as repulsive a group of fans at any sport I can ever recall. They were shameful and an embarrassment. I couldn't believe the crap I was seeing.
