Default If there were no Steelers

It may be sacrilegist to even contemplate such a scenario but if it were so which team would you root for and why?

I would root for the Redskins for a couple of reasons 1. I live in the Wash D.C. area which is Redskin crazy and had I not pledged my loyalty to the Steelers Redskins fever would have infected me. 2. The Redskins fans absolutely hate the Cowboys. Being a out-of-towner Steelers fan I got most of my hate from Cowboy fans due to the 2 SB victories which caused me to develop a hate for the Cowboys. The Bengals and Patriots now occupy most of my hatred but the Cowboys will always have their own special place.

C'mon hon - that's a little harsh.

I know we've had several threads within the last 6 months posing this same question (or along the same lines), but to not be a dik-ette, I'll answer it.

If there were no Steelers, I wouldn't back any other team because I've lived in da Burgh almost my entire life and I am a Hometown Gal just as my moniker reflects. I would probaby just be more into college ball than I am right now. Philly is the only other NFL team in the state and I'd rather poke my eyes out with a fork than become an Eagles fan.

If the Steelers did not exist, I'd still be a NFL fan. However, I would probably approach the NFL much as I approach the NBA now - I would be a fan of individual players moreso than teams.

this sounds crazy, but probably the Cowboys -- i live in Virginia and you can't imagine the horse manure that come out of Reskins fans mouths....When the Redskins win and the Steelers lose it feels like the Redskins beat the Steelers..I can't stand them...I can't listen to local radio so I got Sirius...So, as odd as it may seem I'd be a Cowboys fan if the Steelers did not exist.

I wouldn't be following the NFL if the Steelers didn't exist. I'd be focused on Yankees' baseball and the Bombers of Ithaca College (IC's my alma mater) for college football - even though they're Division III.

If there were no Steelers, I'd probably be a Pats fan. That's an organization that get's it. They make all the necessary moves to be contenders every year. They open the checkbook when they need to.
