Americas Team is Pittsburgh. Everyone knows it. The thing is we dont wanna be Americas team. That is the appeal of us to them. We go about doing things the Steelers way and win while they cant get over themselves long enough to stay competitive.

oh snap! i can't believe you went there! haha!

how did this thread become about America's Team to Michael Jackson molesting small children? yet again, we digress. let's get back on topic here...


i honestly don't think Dallas deserves to be called "America's Team" anymore for the the simple fact, they haven't done anything to prove they deserve to be called that anymore. what good have they done lately? (i ask rhetorically) the answer is...nothing. aside from ESPN contractually obligated to talk about them, i would never hear anything come from that camp and nor would i want to.

i just think that the title "America's Team" should be reserved for the fan of whatever team they wish to root for. in their eyes, their team is "America's Team." (except for the Browns. they can be "Mexico's Team." it matches the color of the water.)

The Brownies could be argued for this as they sort of fit the criteria.

We have fans all across the country (and the world for that matter), and have fans show up to pretty much to all away games you'll fine someone decked out in Browns gear. See, the Cardinals or whenever the Browns play the Jags.

Also, a theory a lot of Browns fan have as to why we actually still got a couple of prime time games despite the 4-12 record was the amount of fans that turned in nationally to watch from our fanbase over other fanbases, something the NFL most have remembered looking at the ratings despite going 2-4 on primetime. :).

Sure we don't have many bandwagon fans like the Cowboys, Steelers, Raiders and Packers, but the fan base is spread out across the county and loyal as fans can be, and not only do they show up at Browns road games, they also show up to watch the Cavs and Tribe on the road if they play away.

And agreed with RoethlisBURGHer, this seems like nothing more than pure fluff put out by ESPN similiar to "Who's now" and other BS things the WWL has put out as of late.

It's different with the Cowboys. You show up at a hotel in downtown Charlotte, N.C., and there are 400 Cowboys fans roaming the lobby. Maybe a handful of that group made the trip from Dallas. No team in the NFL casts a wider net than the Cowboys in terms of homers. And that's why the Cowboys remain the true "America's Team."

There, fixed it for Mosley. If you've never been to Dallas and never lived near there, then in my opinion, that is the definition of homer. At some point, the fan picked a winning team and went with it. That means homer. When Dallas is having a bad period, opposing teams can fill the stands with their fans. Never happens in Pittsburgh. Oh wait, that's because we don't have down period like Dallas does.

If America was some third world country that was constantly being invaded and taken over by foreign powers, disapeared for awhile then re-emerged (even weaker than before), then MAYBE they could be considered "America's Team".

They should shoot for the title of "Afghanistan's Team". It fits a lot better...
