Default Re: Marvin Lewis takes a jab at the Fans???

Pittsburghers, and Steeler fans, drink during tailgates. That's just a fact. That makes the crowd even rowdier when the game is played at 4 or at night. Add to that the fact that night games are just better anyway (see Ohio Satet at Penn State 2005) and you can see why Lewis wouldn't want to bring his mentally fragile troops in to the Bottle.

Default San Francisco Bengals?

How f--king silly? He goes to the 'Steeler Fan will be drunk' card?

Now that Cincinatti is the eastern version of San Francisco, I guess we should expect that bad chardonnay and domestic brie will be plentiful at polite, high affluent tailgate parties outside Paul Brown Stadium.

Now Marv. Listen. Really. I wouldn't encourage your fan base to assimilate Frisco (they hate that word in No. Calif.) tailgate parties. It's not exactly...well manly.

Salmon roe anyone?

I don't see him saying anything that anyone can't say about ANY NFL stadium. I think it's great he wants to be in the opening day spotlight. If my coach doesn't I don't want him as my coach.

As a prior poster noted, Marvin Lewis is from McDonald PA, a very small town in Washington County about 20 miles from Pittsburgh where both Marty Schottenheimer and Marvin grew up. I doubt Lewis has any hostility to those among whom he grew up.

I bet if there is a video Lewis was smiling when he said it. Seeing as Cowher has often joked about and frankly welcomed the ... ummm .... "enthusiasm" of the crowds for the 4 pm and night games, hard for me to get outraged about it, any more than I believe Carson Palmer should get his shorts in a bunch because Cowher is leading "Who Dey - We Dey" cheers.

Just more fuel for the rivalry - bring it on.

He could have worded it a little better. Maybe adding that it's like that in every stadium in the country? But it's Marvin Lewis, what do you expect?
$20 says Cowher is saying the same thing if Pittsburgh has to go to Cincy for a Monday night or Sunday night game. Any coach is. It's totally true, I drink during Sunday games. I drink before AND during Monday night games.

Is that a bad thing? =)

Pittsburgh (noun): a drinking town with a football problem.

It happens at every game. It doesn't matter what time it starts, lots open 5 hours before every game no matter what time it starts.
