I'm sorry if you took this personally, as my comments were certainly not directed at you. I have heard my comments echoed by others over the years, so I know I'm not alone in my opinion.
No you aren't alone - I certainly feel the same way. The majority of the younger crowd are just front-runners - they just want something to be able to talk smack about. But when they lose, they're nowhere to be found, or they only show up to bash the team. And it doesn't just happen with the Steelers, but with the Pens as well. I can't tell you how many young fans you see going to games now that were nowhere to be found before late January and the 4 seasons prior. Sorry, if you're going to be a fan of a team, you have to be there during the good times as well as the bad. There is no middle ground.
