I just finished reading an article context of which dealt with this years playoffs viewer ratings have dropped from years past. Well lotty freakin da...I wonder why? They have mostly been blow outs and a percentage of the Steelers fan base is absent this season. I do not feel the AFC is represented well this year at all. Whats missing = we are. As a football fan as a whole I feel our team would be much more competitive than the AFC display of teams thus far in the playoffs.

Nielsen Media Research has past data on NFL games and some of the most watched games, including Super Bowls include the Steelers.

You're right that without the Steelers in the playoffs, ratings drop. The only thing that may save the Super Bowl rating this year is having the saints in it.

So this is why the NFL rigs the games and pays off the refs in the Steelers' favor? Oh wait, the Steelers aren't in the playoffs this year... :doh:
