Re: A question for Steeler fans
The most crazy are those who have these conspiracy theories like Cowher or Dan Rooney paid off the refs in Super Bowl XL. I think it comes back to jealously mostly. From the outside looking in, wouldn't you be jealous of a team that is a strong team year in and year out. The funny thing for me is when we're compared to teams like the Yankees. Don't want to offend anyone here who's a Yankees fan but the only thing we really have in common with the Yanks is a strong winning tradition. We're not the Redskins or Cowboys who feel the need to plug up any holes with big name free agents. We build our team from the ground up. Don't have the numbers off hand but I'd wager that a very high number of our starters in the SB were originally drafted or signed by us.
