So much for Tomlins seat getting hot
Some interesting tidbits in there. Sorry Jack, the limited partners got the brush off!
Sounds like they want Bell back but not at a nutty price so, Bell gone probably unless he has a moment of clarity.
So all he cares about is regular season records. Good to know so I won't keep my hopes up for another SB championship anytime soon.
Guys got a business to run. Steelers fans are spoiled, as it is, there are empty seats in the stadium. Imagine how many there would be with 6-10 seasons.
Those 6-10 seasons will be on their way once Ben is done.
He also said the James play was called correctly.
So, it's clear he's lost his mind.
Fredo has a good heart, but he's weak and he's stupid, and this is like and death.
Well, at least we have that not to worry about for a while or until Ben gets injured or his skills decline too much. We should be now thinking about what we are going to do about Bell. Will we risk tying up a lot of cap space on him or not? We have to do something definitive IMO about him first before we decide what to do in the draft.
I really don't understand why this is such an issue to people. Am I spoiled because I'd rather watch the game from home than fight traffic, sit in the nosebleed section, pay outrageous prices for parking and concession, and deal with precipitation, freezing temperature, obnoxious drunks, etc?
Your either spoiled or a terrible fan, according to many...
That was really directed at Duke and fans that dismiss a 13-3 season.
I have no problem where fans watch the game but I imagine attendance will drop if this team starts pumping out 6-10 seasons.
No one did that. It's the brutal playoff failures folks are tired of. I could have coached the 2017 Steelers to the playoffs.
Do I have to make the Dan Bylsma argument again? Because I'm probably as sick if it as you guys are
PC answers like you'd expect...he's never really gonna say too much
I understand where you're going with the spoiled comment, fans should be thankful for what they have. But when you are supposedly an elite franchise like the Steelers the standards should always be high. It's like a millionaire who wants to be a billionaire.
Yeah, 13-3 is great but unfortunately they needed to be 14-2......they beat a lot of mediocre to bad teams. To me on paper the record looks great but the eye test all year told me otherwise....
Greed is good!
The games are sold out. Empty seats have nothing to do with record or play. Empty seats are a function of people late getting in from tailgating, beer lines, pee lines and a lot of people go stand out on the rotunda. I go to the games, there are very few actual empty seats. The waiting list is so long 10 years of 6-10 seasons will have no affect on bodies in seats. This idea that there are a lot of empty seats is blown out of reality. From what I have seen the views showing seats not yet filled are typically at the beginning of the game while people are still screwing around.
Yes they have and no you couldnt.
you are probably right because if lambert looks like that Gif that will cause a distraction on the sidelines.
Your point is obviously accurate. I was going more towards the ticket sales and the comments on here after games from the early views of empty seats.
Actually a few 6-10 seasons might fill seats. If current seat holders loose interest, the people on the waiting list from 1995 will probably show up.
This is . I read pretty much every post on this board. I have never seen any negative comment regarding people wanting to watch games at home. I have seen posts from people, myself in particular, who state why they enjoy going to the games.
