    This is why I can't stand these people.

    -Trippin Tomlin.
    -Their deflated football issues.
    -the walkie talkie sh*t.
    -and their 70's pharmaceutical superteams.

    And they question OUR accomplishments?

    Spygate was about camera location rules in a 2007 memo. How the hell these drunken f*cktards think this has anything to do with any of our games against them is beyond me.

    The sooner that fan base dies of Patriot-envy induced alcohol poisoning, the better.

    Did the Squealers cheat against the Seahags in their SB, because more likely than not, they paid off the refs.

    Dunno about payoffs but would it surprise anyone if that came from the league? Rooney is looked at favorably with the owners. And it was a nice retirement present for the Bus and all. Goodell wasn't around then but I still wouldn't put it past them at all especially knowing what we know now.

    It was the only Super Bowl in history where the referee apologized to the opposing teams fans for impacting the result of the game. In other words...

    How many Super Bowls have the black and gold turds cheated away from other teams? I can't stand Pisspuke and their inbred fans.
    I hope the Pats boat-race these clowns.

    No matter what happens... at least we aren't forever known as the team that Tebow beat in the playoffs. :)

    I just remembered that last play of the Ari/Pit SB. Warner got sacked, and they claimed is was a fumble, but it looked like his arm was going forward. I always wondered why they decided so quick on that. Fizgerald was on fire, a hail mary would not be out of the question.

    Pretty crazy to think the Patriots are the Evil Empire and they are the good guys. How did that happen? Oh yeah, we have Goodell and his made up scandal that never happened.

    In a game in 1992, John Madden explained that it was common practice to film the opponent's defensive coordinator giving the signals as well as having multiple people watching him to figure them out.

    John Madden talked about filming opposing team's signals in 1992

    "Lot of calling going on down there," Madden says, referring to the Redskins making signs for play-call purposes. "The backup quarterback, the coach, they have three or four guys giving a signal. Because usually when you play a team in your division, they also have films of the game, but they've also videotaped your signal callers."

    It's funny how salty Pittsburgh fans are that they have sour feelings on Cowher because he has refused to use the inaccurate excuses that they, former and current players, and their current head coach use on a frequent basis.

    Ever notice how the vast majority of Steeler fans (and writers) simply trot out a worn out myth, treat it as fact, and then expect or demand someone defending the Patriots to come up with proof that the alleged consequence did not happen?

    That's the beauty about conspiracy theories. The supposed victim (Steelers) only has to offer a rumor or oft-repeated line; to the yinzers that passes as evidence. And since you cannot disprove a negative, the inability to do so is further proof in their clouded minds that they are correct. From there it is a very short step to use that 'proof' as a launching pad to convict on any new gossip, based on prior 'crimes'.

    First of all, that's allowed

    Second of all, if Pittsburgh didn't mix up their hand signals then they deserve what they get.

    Third of all, I don't buy it. He makes it sound like the fact the NE played Pittsburgh during the regular season led them to be able to steal their signals. But if you are stealing signals, why would playing them in the regular season matter? You can get the video for all 16 games anyway.

    We violated a 2006 memo in 2001 or 2004?

    The best part of that "logic" by Steelers fans is that, when you bring up the steroid abuse by their team in the 70s, they're quick to say that steroids weren't outlawed until the 80s. When you bring up your point, that a 2006 memo doesn't affect 2005 and earlier, they think that's absurd.

    And while it is true that steroids weren't outlawed until the 80s...that is only relevant to the act of being prescribed them for a valid medical reason with a valid prescription.

    On the other hand ABUSING steroids or any other prescription drug such as using them as a PED which is what the 70s Steelers were doing - that was never legal in the NFL or at all in this country.

    There's a huge difference between use and ABUSE. So to claim innocence using that argument is disingenuous.

    They were absolutely cheats, no question about it. I'm sure a few teams were too but none of them had a championship dynasty like Pitt did.
