What's with people here and all the negativity towards football? There's no reason that Pittsburgh can't be a good football and hockey town.
There is indeed a bit of antimosity between the diehard Steeler v Pens fans.
Personally, I love both sports but I love hockey more mainly because nfl players get away with murder and hockey players are humble people and barely get in any trouble. Some Steeler fans acted very inconsiderate when the Pens were on the verge of leaving and that tainted my view of them. ''Hockey? Who cares they'll be gone next year anyway". If the shoe were on the other foot (and believe me at the rate prices of nfl stadiums are increasing it could definately happen) most of us (Pens fans)would have never acted that way.
In my opinion football attracts some of the most classless people. When I was at the Giants @ Steelers game last week I almost punched this Steeler fan in the face. A giants fan as at the urinal and taking a little extra time and a steeler fan pushed the guy in front of him into the guy. Somone shouted "show some class, this isnt Philadelphia" and he shouted back "Class doesnt matter, wins do".This is just one of the many reasons I distance myself from steeler/football fans in general.
Granted one or two bad apples dont make the entire bunch bad but they show time and time again this is their mentality.
