I'd answer some other ones...but that would REALLY be cheating.

I don't know some of them anyway...wasn't born till '80 and a lot of that is before my time. Were my Dad and Grandpa still alive though, they would have smoked that thing lol.
Well, I can't say I know much about Pgh that happened before I was born either.
Then again, like I said, the pre AFC-inclusion NFL doesn't interest me at all.
I really just don't care. And probably only reason I know anything about 1970s
football is because of Pgh's amazing team and 4 Super Bowls. Other wise,
wouldn't interest me either.

Nope, no "fond" memories left of the qb's that didn't quite fail but never succeeded in winning us a Lombardi

I grew up in the south hills, and now live just east of Pittsburgh. Ive lived and breathed Steelers football my entrie 30 years of life. Plus I'm a steelworker, so i'm a "steeler" through and through. also, I know what the 3 colors of the Hypocyloids in the steelmark stand for.

Loving the Steelers is what makes you a true Steelers fan. Any other barometer is just bs developed by someone with an overinflated ego.

If you can't name the players, you aren't a fan. How can you claim
to love something you don't even know? That is not possible.

Knowing the players does not quantify being a fan. I mean, you, I and many others of this lovely message board will know most of the starting lineup, but the fan who just for the team, even if they are not having a good season, is still a fan in my eyes, even he or she only knows the quarterback for the team. And plus, with most teams there is alot of turnover with the players and such. Just being there, rooting for the team is what makes a fan, a fan

Again though, with anything in life, you really can't love something
you don't know. You can be a "casual fan" if you want to say that, I guess.
But, for example. I can't name any players on the Pirates. I was slightly
pleasd when I saw they were winning. If they made the play offs I would
have rooted and even watched them (not the entire game but would have
checked in). And, in the process I would learn some of their players. But
do I consider myself a fan of the Pirates? No. Not at all.
