in my experience with bad fans, they don't believe your team can win it all. When your team does win the SB, they hardly acknowledge it, maybe saying something like there was cheating or luck involved.

After your team wins the SB, they just want to talk about next year, in which your team is going to get what's coming to them.

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.

IF you want to see a whiner of a head coach, I suggest you look at Harbaugh of the Ravens, the man never accepts responsibility after a defeat, only throws out crap like "we gave it away." and then like you guys and the Bears, we met again the playoffs and beat them. I chalk it up to jealously over you guys having more success historically than the Bears. It's the same thing with Ravens fans and us really except the Bears have more history than the Ravens do obvously.

Nonsense. I'm a Raven fan. I haven't posted on this board since the Steelers lost because I'm not one to gloat when the Steelers lose. I haven't seen any other Ravens fans gloating or rubbing salt in the wound either.

I think most Ravens fans handle both defeat and victory quite well. Baltimore is a class city and as a general rule our fans are gracious in both defeat and victory. Same with our coach. John Harbaugh is a class act.

From reading this board during the last week, I see a lot of fans who can't seem to believe their team lost and certainly are not taking the defeat very well. It's not that different from what I read on the Ravens board after the Ravens lost. It is difficult to lose a Super Bowl, I actually think it is harder on Steeler fans to lose the Super Bowl than it was on Ravens fans to lose in the playoffs.

But let's not pretend that Ravens fans have some kind of inferiority complex and can't take losing. If that were the case M+T wouldn't be sold out year after year, whether we lose in the playoffs, don't make the playoffs, or win the Super Bowl. Baltimore is a good sports city, one of the best in the USA and Ravens fans are some of the best.

Wow bobby, I haven't seen you on these boards since you took that nice long break after your team lost. Too bad you didn't come back here right after the game, although I can't say I'm surprised.

You have nothing to gloat about. Your team didn't beat us.

3 times in the playoffs actually. In fact, the Ravens have NEVER won a big game against the Steelers. Easily, the 6 most meaningful games head to head against the Ravens have all been won by the Steelers. After that, you could argue which games were more important, but they really have never cost the Steelers anything. Most of their wins are early season or late season when we are not in contention or resting starters. For a rivalry, the big games have been very one sided.

No wonder they hate Pittsburgh so much. Beating them in the playoffs 3 times? Wow that must hurt for a Ravens fan.
