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.

and there is this article as well...
SuperBowl Wins - How many does YOUR team have?
Steelers 6, 49ers 5, Boys 5, Packers 4, Giants 4, Skins 3, Raiders 3, Pats 3, Broncos 2, Fins 2, Colts 2, Ravens 2 Bears 1,Jets 1, Bucs 1, Rams 1, Chiefs 1, Seahawks 1, Saints1
