    Starkey's Mailbag: Did the Patriots cheat the Steelers out of Super Bowls?

    Joe Starkey, @JoeStarkey1: You never answered your own question, jerk: Did the Patriots cheat the Steelers out of a Super Bowl or two?

    Starkey: Hi, Joe. I’m going to say no in 2001, despite Hines Ward’s protestations. I’m a lot more suspicious of 2004, when the Patriots likely stole the Steelers’ defensive hand signals during a regular-season game at Heinz Field and came back here for the AFC championship.

    "Likely stole" sounds awfully similar to "more probable than not". We know how that one played out.

    Maybe change your signals, you dopes? It's not like they hid the camera and 80,000 people in the stadium see the same damn signals. So if a coach in the press box just wrote down your signal would that not be cheating? The Steeler fans really are the worst. Entitled douche bags think the Superbowl is their birth right.

    I live in Pittsburgh.

    I have argued Spygate like a defense attorney for at least 3 hours already at work.

    Only 5 more days of this crap. Medically induced coma until Sunday 6:30 pm is an option I guess.

    No, but a more appropriate and relevant questions would be, did the steroid popping Steelers of the 70's cheat the Vikings out of Super Bowl IX, the Cowboys out of Super Bowl's X & XIII, and the Rams out of Super Bowl XIV ? Maybe they should ask that one instead? And, I won't even mention that travesty of epic proportion that took place in Super Bowl XL, against the Seahawks. Had to make sure "Bus" got his SB ring, especially in his home town of Detroit.

    Yup thats why Ben threw an INT in the redzone or Jerome Bettis couldnt get a single yard on 4th and 1 or your all pro safety bit on a route . Because of defensive signals.

    They. Used. A. Wristband. System. As confirmed multiple times by then-HC Bill Cowher.

    I hate the Steelers more than I could possibly put into words, but I hate their yinzer fans even worse.

    You have to blame that stupid ESPN piece which made this worse.
    This crap sticks and no one cares to check the actual play. Even my 8 yr old nephew read the ESPN stuff in a magazine and thought it was all true.

    what pisses me off so much about Pittsburgh is Tomlin actually cheated and tripped a player.

    Well, if indeed we "stole" your signals. then who's fault is that, that you never "changed" your signals? Don't even average coaches do that regularly.

    Anyone read that "Spygate the untold story" conspiracy theory book? I knew it had to be from a Steelers fan and it was.
