    First I am a huge Steeler fan if you haven't already guessed that. But my buddy sent me this article in an email today... Before everyone flies off the handle, I believe the article is meant to be humorous, because there are related articles about all the teams in the AFC North. There is bad language in this, but here is the steelers : http://deadspin.com/5935313/why-your-te ... h-steelers

    Now here are the other teams:

    Browns: http://deadspin.com/5934929/why-your-te ... Sucks-2012

    Ravens: http://deadspin.com/5934703/why-your-te ... Sucks-2012

    Bengals: http://deadspin.com/5933607/why-your-te ... Sucks-2012

    This is the first I've seen it, and I thought it was hilarious, but I didnt want to get jumped all over by some people who thought I posted this for other reasons!

    I was rolling at ours. I haven't even made it to the A-hole teams in our division. I hope I'm in line with the article there...!

    I love -
    1) how even the girls are born with goatees.
    2) They are the Sammy Hagar of the NFL.
    3) everything said about Suggs and his mouth and gums.

    then the fan stuff is great too. Didn't know that about their logo....

    I went straight to the Ravens one and laughed so loud that one of my kids came in to see 'what was the matter'. Apparently my loud belly laughter sounded like a distress signal to my six year old. On to the Steelers and some others.

    I couldn't finish it. Way too much vular language for me. Don't get me wrong, I'm no patron saint or sheltered recluse. I'm 50 and for most of my life I drank, smoked,ran around, fought and cussed-badly, but now after becoming a christain 10 years ago I think cigerettes stink really bad and cuss words just irritate me.

    Ours and Ravens are OK, but good gad the Browns had me rolling on the frick'n floor and the Metallica vid accompanying it perfection.

    While you read how bad it is to be a Cleveland fan and/or be @ a stains game do yourself a favor and fire up the Metallica vid:
    (I defy you not to spit out your morning brew so be prepared)

    'Where am I?'

    'This young man will be as unfeeling as the dead from the day he joins them.'

    'I don't know whether I'm alive and dreaming or dead and remembering.'

    ................................PRICELESS!

    You're right Cajun, there was a lot of explicit language. I assumed most people were familiar with deadspin and the...writing style there. Sorry about that. I'll add a language warning in the OP.

    "To a Ravens fan, Hines Ward and Ben Roethlisberger are/were overrated, cheap shot artists who are scum...but every single Ravens fan would gladly have them on the team in a heartbeat. Ray Lewis' involvement in the Atlanta murders...complete misunderstanding and the media targeting a big name athlete for no reason. Big Ben...SERIAL RAPIST! It is so hilarious how Steeler and Ravens fans hate each other because they are mirror images. It's like watching two retards dry hump the opposite end of a couch, shouting insults to each other."

    This is from the Ravens one. This is so true

    I jumped back to an Onion article as I found the Steelers one very degrading and not funny at all. The Ravens one was ok until he got to Suggs. Normally, I don't mind the language, but somehow it seems like they just go overboard with it.

    A little funnier read from the Onion http://www.theonion.com/articles/you-wi ... m-f,10804/

    That is pretty funny. And we are bias, if we're not, we're rooting for the wrong team.

    There used to be a bar here called the Steele City Grille. I was there and We were playing the Browns, The other Ryan (Rob)was their D coordinator. The refs called for a measurement. They stretched the chains and we were a full yard short before the chain went all the way out. Ref says first down! Ryan went gorilla di*k on the sidelines. Ben got em up and snapped the ball. The whole bar was screaming woo hoo Go refs! There were two stain fans there and went into shock. And we picked on them for the call.

    A person may not fully appreciate the backhand compliment paid to Steeler fans, in this article, unless you've lived in a few other places.

    The writer did a good job capturing the reality of the 'they're everywhere'.

    As he is degrading Steeler fans(jokingly), I was smiling the whole time knowing how true it is.
