Exactly how I was raised. I was brought home in a Willie Stargell outfit and Black and Gold have been our colors since day one. Now I raise my children the same way.

Terrific, starting them early so they can grow and learn about the Steelers as they grow up.

My dad didn't have a team, he flipped between his childhood Packers and the Bengals (ironically.) My mother rooted for the Falcons because her family did (and they were the "home" team.) My brother rooted for the Broncos because he loved John Elway.

I've already said on here how I became a fan, and I'm at a point where I feel like I don't have to prove anything anymore. For a while, I felt pressured because I wasn't from the 'burgh and people (even my idiot cousin) labeled me a bandwagoner. The fact is, I know more about the Steelers than they likely do about their own franchise (i.e. - originally the Pirates, first game was a 23-2 loss, oh and Ernie F'N Stautner) and I always support them win or lose.

There is honestly no better feeling than being a Steelers fan. It has nothing to do with how many titles we have, how much success we've constantly had. It's because of the support we give the team.

Yeah, felt the same pressure from my family, my brother and parents saying to me how could you be a Steeler fan, your joining because they win allot of Super Bowls. I said to them its my decison & their is allot more reasons to why I became a Steelers fan, one of them being the traditions of the franchise, the great history, coaches, players and the blue collar identity this franchise exudes.

I rooted for the Steelers ever since 2004. The year Big Ben joined the NFL. Before this, I had not even heard of American Football. I didn't follow the Steelers through and through, and only started watching NFL on a regular basis the past two years (I'm recently 20, and am a HARD-OUT Rugby fan). I rooted for the Steelers because they were the first and only team I played with on Madden NFL, and it has stuck since. Some on forums may call me a bandwagoner, since I'm from Australia and really have no personal relationship with Pittsburgh (or any NFL team for the matter). I went for the Steelers because of the way Ben played the game, the way Bettis ran the ball and the hard smash mouth football that defined the Steelers. This was before I figured out they were such a decorated franchise. Six years on, I tune in at sometimes 4 am in the morning to watch games and miss work on Mondays occassionally to catch a big Steeler game (since Sunday games are on Monday in Aus).

"... THIS man is holding-down the South Pacific for us!!!



From this point-forward, NOBODY calls this man a 'band-wagoner', got-it???"

All of my friends have tried to label me as a bandwagon fan because I never rooted for the hometown team. But my Dad is a Cowboys fan living in the DC area, I was never allowed to root for the Redskins (hate them almost as much as the Ravens), but I love my Steelers and Penguins. Watch every game, pregame shows, you name it and I've either watched it or read it. Started watching the Steelers as a kid in the 1998 season, never looked back. Don't get me wrong, I'll root for the Pirates, but I'm a Cubs fan. Still haven't figured out which one is worse though.
