Default Re: Argument with Green Bay fans

Growing up in the 1950's and 60's, the Packers were my favorite team because they were on TV every week because the Steeler games were always blacked out. The Steelers played at old Pitt Stadium back then and never sold out. So every week the team that was on TV was Lombardi's Packers with Bart Starr, Paul Hornung etc.
It wasn't until the Steelers started winning and 3 Rivers Stadium was built that they started to appear on TV. So I can see both sides of the argument having watched the old NFL and also the new NFL after the merger.
