So that means out of 32 teams in the NFL 42% of the fans route for the Patriots. Ofcourse that's not true but still because statistics can say anything.

Patriots are the villians this time. What an ironic reversal of roles...

Wow, that's a lot. but well, in the end it doesn't matter what people want, but what matters is if they get it or not.

Amen to that. All of this talk is cheap.

How so? The Steelers have consistently been one of the most popular and endeared franchises in the NFL for decades. The Patriots were largely ignored until fairly recently, they had a little run of popularity when people identified with them as an underdog that could win, and, excepting a little regional love and some bandwagoning, are now sinking faster in the popularity polls than a NAMBLA member running for public office.

Reversal of roles how sport? Steelers have never been down there in low public esteem with teams such as the Raiders.

Did you watch Kornheiser and Jaworski say at the end of the halftime ceremonies honoring the Steelers 75th anniversary team that the 70s Steelers were the Super Bowl dynasty and (just as important to me) that fans actually liked that team (what I took to be a pointed shot at the Pats).

Compare that to the scorn in which the Patricheats Reich and Fuhrer Belichick are held.

Guys seriously. Nobody is saying people hate the Steelers but it wasn't long ago that they were the dominating juggernaut while the Pats were the ones under the radar. Who was the last team to go 15-1? The Rams?

Many fans were looking at the Steelers as "the last hope" to beat the Patriots a little bit after NE's win in Indy.

America as well as the 1972 Dolphins will be Steeler fans on Sunday. I hope the guys in Black and Gold are up to the challenge.
