Hey Pittsburgh fans want to apologize if our fans are being too hateful on our forums and bashing your qb or coming here and talking smack. I respect the heak out of your team and cant hold any hate. I hope you guys dont hold any for us either. I think Ben is turning his life around and everyone makes mistakes, nobody is perfect. Win or lose this will be a good game. I honestly dont know how any of our fans can act like jerks toward a team with as good of a history as us.

I don't either man. I had to stop reading the Packer forums, it just seems like every other post has something about rape in it. So instead of getting all :mad:, I'll stick around my fellow Steeler Brothers and Sisters.

Chicago fans are low class. I almost got into it with a Bear fan at work only because I have been taking his crap all year long and he is just trashing the Packers all the time. I haven't seen him yet, not sure if I will rub it in or take the high road.

Just look at him and smile, that will sting more than anything you say. Cause he will know that you know that he knows his team is sitting at home crying about Cutler. :chuckle:

I don't think you'll have a problem with that. most on here have a ton of respect for green bay's organization. I even caught myself saying (before the AFC championship) "The only team I wouldn't be pissed if we lost to would be green bay". Well I hope that doesn't happen but that's just saying how much I respect that team and its history.

To be honest I cant believe the love the Steelers have for us. I know that wont happen the next two weeks lol. I didnt think you guys liked us for whatever reason maybe cause we had a rich history and tradition like you guys. I came here for the first time I was stunned to see all the love the Steeler fans have for us. Thats why I hope we dont talk crap to you guys and act like jerks. I went over to the Eagles board after we beat them and wished them well and told them to keep their heads up and I got one response from them telling me to die in a fire. I mean wow talk about low class.

Don't worry about it. I like the Packers and most of their fans. If the Steelers hadn't come out of the AFC I most likely would have supported the Pack in the SB.

Thanks for the kind words, but really...you don't need to apologize for others, especially on their own forums. Like others have said, it's kind of expected, and I know there's been some smack talk here as well. It's the Superbowl, people are just pumped up lol.

As for Eagles fans? In general Philly fans are horrid (to put it nicely). I deal more with Flyers fans on a couple hockey forums...but they are equally nasty. They pride themselves on it. It's very sad.

Seriously though, you guys have been great. It's definitely a breath of fresh air after dealing with Ravens and Jets fans. :drink:

Same here. Was shocked to see the kind of hate going on from Pack fans since I have nothing but respect for them as a team, organization, and fanbase. The Ben ordeal is already tiring, the dude clearly didn't do what he was accused of but if it makes people who are scared to DEATH of our football team more comfy in trash talk, so be it.

we both have our few share of ***hole fans, but for the most part.....Packers and Steelers fans are the best fans, knowledgeable, and are pretty classy for the most part.
Believe me, there's a few of us who've wanted to 'apologize' for a thing or two thats been said on here, but for the most part, it's been the coolest, "friendliest" trash-talking so far this year.

I HATE the Packers because it is who we are playing Next!

I hate everyone equally, when we play them. So its not personal...you're just on the field across from us and our Goal...So I HATE the Packers!

Like really hate them to the point of learning everything I possibly can about them for the next 2 weeks so I have the best ammunition to use against them for smack talk during the game...

It just irritates the absolute SHIT out of me that others fanbase's and their big mouthes don't want to do re-search on things and makes themselves look like assholes. They listen WAY too much of the "talking heads" around the league rather than forming fact, like we are "cheap shot artists" and we play "dirty." That can't be any farther from the truth! The Steelers play one way, PHYSICAL, and if you don't like it, get ready to get embarrassed because it's the only way we know how to play. We challenge people to step onto our level.

As for last year, that's dog years! If anything, Green Bay is much more LESS equipped and the Steelers are stronger. That was a defensive let-down game, that will NOT happen in this one, especially from us.

Steeler fans are super nice people thats why I hope we arent jerks to you guys on your forums or our forums. You represent Pennsylvania in a good way not like those Eagle fans to the east side of the state. There really must be something in the water in Philly that caused a bunch of brain damage to those people. I mean they are just a$$holes over there.

I got banned from an Eagles board because they were making nasty Katrina jokes and I asked them how they'd like it if somebody made a joke about (at the time recently deceased) Jim Johnson.

Took em about 5 minutes to ban me.

I'd like to add though I highly respect the Pack as an organization, especially how they handled the Favre mess. They ended up looking like gold on it, and Favre ended his career looking like a complete buffoon.

Honestly, I can think of no two NFL Franchise and fans who more closely resemble each other than the Packers and Steelers. I have traveled all over our great land and met quite a few Packer fans and always found them to be well versed in Tackle Football, Loyal to their team and for good reasons....Knowledgeable of their teams rich history and mark on the World of Football.

I live in Florida and see a few here now and again.I'll be out and about and have a jovial Pack Fan come up to me when I'm wearing one of our Away White jerseys and say,"Replace the Black stripes with Green and that would be a Packers Jersey!" For well over a decade I watched all my Steeler games at Sportsbars. Never met a Packer fan that I couldn't share a few beers with while talking about Football. Much like Steeler fans, the Packers fans I have met made their love of their team a family affair. You guys become fans as many of us do.It is weaned into you as a child.

I think for many fans of our teams, the fact that there is no long or short running animosity between our two teams frustrates many. For the life of me, I can't think of anything bad about you guys. It frustrates me because I can find bad amongst anything. I'm a retired Detective. I got paid for over 20 years to be professionally callous. What am I going to do? Make fun of Cheese? I love cheese.

Think think think....Oh.Wait. I got it.. That Championship Belt celebration is kind of silly.

That's all I got.
Good Luck to the Packers, come Super Bowl Sunday, you'll no doubt need it. You are playing the 6 Time SB Champs Steelers.

Although I have never dined with or had a beer with a Packer fan, I think what you say is true. Very similar to us with the rich tradition and lifelong fans. I mean REAL fans, not these bandwagon types!

Good luck. I just KNOW the Steelers are going to win #7. They are going to do it for my late, great Steeler Nation friend. I told her when we won last Sunday, with tears all over the place, that they won just for her. Now they'll take home the trophy for her for the same reason! And I KNOW looking down, she's going to be rooting her head off.

I've called for about, three Steelers/Packers Super Bowl matchups over the years. I wanted it in 1997, I wanted it in 1998 and I certainly wanted it this year and we finally got it.

Point blank, I've ALWAYS said that if the Steelers were to lose the Super Bowl, I'd be devastated but the pain would be VERY much taken away only if we would lose to the Pack because they are THEE only team in the league I respect.

In my honest opinion, this is a win win. If we win, I'd ball my eyes out and celebrate beyond celebration, if the Pack win, I'd seriously feel good for their organization and wouldn't have ill feelings.

Trust me man, I'll admit, I cried in my time when the Steelers have lost, esp big games. That said, I'll probably cry either way, I'm man enough to admit it but the pain would not be as bad if we lose to the Pack than to say, Dallas! Trust me, I'll be devastated and will go into some intense hibernation if we lose. That's just natural but I can live, I think, with a GB win, atleast for the short-term.

Honestly, I might be fooling myself! Haha....

One of my good friends is a huge Packer fan. I am going to his house for a Super Bowl party so I will be in the Lion's den. But I also cannot hate the Packers. The worst Super Bowl ever was the Giants against the Patriots as far as hating both teams. Can't stand anything New York and the Patriots are just .......... So this game is great because I like both teams. Of course there is no other team but the Steelers but if they lost this one it wouldn't kill me. The Steelers just knocked off two straight whiny, classless organizations. That was enough of that to make me want to puke.

There is nothing about the Steelers to hate. You won it all 6 times but your grind it out offense and historic great defenses are awesome to look back on. God bless you guys and dont read some of our fans posts cause majority of our fans like you guys and are classy.
