I mean, really..we were supposed to be called the "National Team" originally...

In the 1970's, when the Pittsburgh Steelers were winning all those Super Bowls -- four in all -- NFL Films approached the Steelers with the idea of naming them "The Nation's Team." The idea was to produce a fancy documentary highlighting the Steelers' success and their national prominence.

One small problem, though.

Art and Dan Rooney would have none of that.
