The point is...the Super Bowl venue is supposed to be a nuetral zone.....non biased. If the venue was handing out terrible towels, then that is not following what the SB venue is supposed to be....and in turn creating a home field advantage.

Having said that....I haven't heard or read this anywhere until here.....nor do I think the crowd had anything to do with the outcome of the game....but that would be peculiar if it did come out that the venue employees were handing out terrible towels.

I don't think it was true in the least it doesn't make sense to me. Why would Pittsburgh fans need a terrible towel? It should be a given that every fan that made it there had their own already. I may question the officating but truthfully this seems to be over the line.

And the fact is no yellow towel made us lose we lost because of our mistakes end of story.

That game looked like a home game. Majority of the audience was the Steelers Nation and were all loaded with their collection of Terrible Towels!

It was but that doesn't excuse our loss, if you want to be champion you win, home/road is irrevelant.

I *was* there. Vendors were selling Terrible Towels, but I can tell you that I didn't see a single person buy them. Folks were already armed with them and using them.

It's not our fault that the Steelers are 700 times more appealing than the seahawks to the good people of Detroit! LOL

Yeah.. they were selling stuff for both teams at vendor booths behind the seating areas. I think all the ruckus is about the fact that late in the 4th quarter those vendors brought boxes of terrible towels into the stands and tried to sell them from the aisles.

I do feel for ya Blitz.

The biggest game the Steelers have played and won for 26 years has been called into question.

Most of the nonsense will die down in a week or two...once people start to look towards the draft.

Personally Im all for a 32 week season - so we dont have to wait so damn long for the start of a new season!

.
if it was SUPPOSED to be at a nuetral site it would be held at a stadium not currently occupied by a nfl team. funny thing is i bet if detroit had made it to the sb this year there still wouldve been more steelerfans there than lion fans. thats just how good and widespread the steeler fanbase is.
