I wish the workplace would let me wear my Steelers jersey...obviously, it's not blue or green (dress code colors). Oh well. I guess I'll have to settle for my Steelers sweatshirt, cap, and coat. :D

What is sad, is that this is just a game. The priorities that the schools and officials are sending out are not the ones that the kids should maintain. I'll admit that I teach my daughter all that is right in Steelers Nation but the bottom line is that it's just a freakin' game and I want my daughter to know so much more than just black and gold. But if someone is going to discriminate based on that, then they have no idea, especially in today's society what message they are sending.

They are teaching something far more destructive than what any one fan could teach their child!!!

WPXI has it wrong. The school did not send him home, I pulled him from school because they would not allow him to wear the jersey although they allowed others to wear Cards gear. What is unfortunate is that Tristan has had perfect attendance for the past six quarters. Hey, you got ot draw the line somewhere though!

Well anyway, good for you AZ. I actually think it is quite humorous. I would imagine if a Cardinal fan wore Cards gear on a B&G day around here it wouldn't be that big a deal. But I guess you know how people act when they are jealous.....

Someone should have the school shut down. They have violated the rights of the first amendment. Good Job AZBurgher. This can be an example to those who wish to create such a policy.

I say we send the school a championship terrible towel, hat, shirt, and have the NFL donate all of the unsold Trophy towels to the school.
