Default Online Petition, Throwbacks and Anti-Holding #92

http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/steelers09

send the above link to all of your friends and post it on any other boards that you may be on.

The petition reads:
We the fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers would like to request that the Throwback uniforms be worn against the Ravens in the 2009 AFC Championship game. We would also like to request that the NFL start calling holding penalties on offensive players that hold James Harrison #92. Tackling a rushing linebacker is not a legal blocking technique. Thank you and Go Steelers.

Give the throwback thing a break, already. Those things are ugly.

The jerseys are cool. The white pants and gold helmets.....not so cool.

You realize that online petitions aren't really official, right?

yeah I know, but the last petition I started about Steely McBeam drew a ton of publicity, I was on radio shows and local news channels. So if I can draw attention publicly, that works for me

IMO the throwback uniforms should only be used for Monday night games. The Giants game this year was proof enough.

As for the holding thing, I completely agree. Did any of you hear the commentators during a rush from Deebo? They showed the play in slow-mo, with Deebo getting held and mugged, and they had the oddasity to say he got tangled up!!!
