Default am I legit to say "we" about the Steelers?

when i talk with people I use the term "we" when im talking about Steelers and a lot of people laugh at me and mugs me. they tell me that its a term i am not legit to use since im not a part of the team and i live in Denmark(europe) and not in Pittsburgh or even in USA.
personally i think im legit to say we about the Steelers since i followed and been rooting for them for 8 years now, i buy my jerseys and merchandise from steelers.com, i pay 250$ every year for NFL gamepass so i can watch every Steelers game and even though im not from pittsburgh i am planning on going there next year to watch a game.
So i was just curios about what you guys think. am i legit to use the term "we" about the Steelers or should i shut my mouth and use "they" or "the Steelers" in future hehe?

I do.

Because they are mine. All mine.

I find myself using the "we" term very often when talking about the Steelers.

I always say "we", my buddies always mess with me because of that, but I can't help it.

I've caught stick for saying "we" when discussing the Steelers as well, but to me, it sounds more awkward saying "they."

Without us the Steelers don't exist. We pay their salaries. They are ours.

Same here. But most people I know say "we" when talking about their team.
Like we are going to kick your a$$ next time.

"We" are Steeler Nation and "we" are a part of the team and who they are...

I always say we also. Because as a fan, we are a part of the team.
