Default How long does it take for u to get over a lost

It usually takes me till Monday Eveing after the Monday night game. Then I can focus on next week except when we got a bye the loss lingers awhile longer. I will not watch ESPN tonight I hate watching the highlights of a game we lost that we could have one.

Hmmmm...about 5 minutes. Sorry, I may be a die-hard fan, but my entire life doesn't revolve around Steelers football or wins/losses.

How was I being an ass??? I answered the question honestly and I wasn't accusing you or anyone else of being OBsessed! Football and sports in general do not get me to the point of being upset over losses for very long, because they are nothing but diversions from every day life for me - it's just the way I am, and I'm NOT going to apologize for that. And it sure as HELL doesn't mean that I don't care - all you have to do is read my posts in the game thread to see that that is FAR from the truth!

...You gotta remember to take these posts at face value. I don't think X-terminator was insinuating anything about anyone else in his first post.

I get over losses pretty quickly as well. I decided a long time ago (during the Bubby Brister years) that the longer I dwell on it the more I detest the team that beat us and that makes it even worse the next time you loose!

Great question

It of course depends on what else is going on in my life - the Steelers are important but in eventful times in my life it really is just a game NM

That having been said - less time this year than in previous seasons

ESPN Sports Guy Bill Simmons (a Pats and Rd Sox fan) has what he calls his "5 year rule" in which he says you cut your team an enormous amount of slack fo 5 years after they win it all.

I obviously will be watching every game this year but when you look back on the magical run last season and everything that broke the Steelers way from early December on, if this season goes the way it may be heading I will get over it easier than in past years.

Unfortunately, I am afraid my lack of urgency also is felt in some way by the coaches and players of this year's team, if the play over the first 3 games is any indication.
