No, many of us disagree with a lot of decisions made! This guy is a constant and you will NEVER catch me saying I'm embarrassed to be a Steelers fan!

well, i'm NOT embarrassed to be a Steelers fan - but i find this rule/situation "embarrassing" - absolutely.

And no - i don't agree with everything the Steelers do. Most. But not everything. So i should go root for another team? Really?

no, you shouldn't,

it really pisses me off when a fellow Steelers fan tells me I should go root for another team just because I don't agree with everything the Steelers always do...

I don't think anyone said that if you disagree with the team go find another team. I don't care if you disagree with everything they do. Being EMBARRASSED to be a Steelers fan goes beyond disagreeing. And it's not just this guy venting. Almost all of his recent threads have the same tone. So yeah, I didn't say it before, but I'll say it now. If it embarrasses you to be a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers then go find another team that doesn't embarrass you. If that offends anyone then so be it. I bleed black and gold and will never be embarrassed to be a part of Steeler Nation.

seriously - who effing cares

Tomlin beat out Whiz and Grimm - you mean to tell me they would have done a better job? How about Rivera?

getting the job because he's black? - you're so ignorant - I guess it must be blissful for you

“We want minorities to get the job"

This is why Tomlin was hired and it's worked well for you with this team... lol. You can say he won us a Super Bowl but that was luck and he had a Cowher built team. As you can see it's now crumbling.

Tomlin is the biggest joke in the NFL and I can't wait until he is gone.

I'm so sick of this race/color bullshit when it comes to jobs in this country. Whoever is more qualified should get the job regardless of color and that's the bottom line and I don't believe Tomlin was the best fit for this team and city.

I would be saying the same thing if Tomlin was white, so don't let that bs start.

i wouldnt say he is the joke of the league, but he isnt anything more than a mediocre coach that has handed the best gig in the nfl

actually, I do agree with what you're saying here.

although it pisses me off to have people tell me to go root for another team if i disagree with some of their decisions or if I don't think they will go undefeated every season, I'm also NEVER embarrassed to be a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers either.
