    It’s not that

    Some of us old technology folks live in rural areas where the internet is so slow you can’t stream

    Satellite is my only choice

    We’ll that stinks. I’d imagine there will be a way to get the games or at least internet to support streaming.

    that is true. At the risk of going down a political track, I firmly believe the government should invest in internet/communications infrastructure- it’s good for the nation.

    Ugh. That would suck. I haven't been able to get Sunday Ticket for years because DirecTV's streaming isn't available here and I can't have a dish (long story).

    I guess I'll be paying for yet another streaming service if that happens. I had GamePass, which was switched over to NFL+ this year, but I'd be much happier paying more to watch the games live.

    And yet.... I never have problems watching the game no glitch, no behind other viewers, no sound problems....nothing.....Yet every week during the streaming of Thursday night games people are b!+ching about one , or more of these things. Just because it's newer doesn't make it better.

    LoL. If You can just turn the game on with no problems.....new , or not....why would you want something that is constantly having problems???? Just because it's new...:shrug:
    That make no sense.
    There are a bunch of new things in the world that are awesome, but there are a bunch of new things that aren't. I prefer to stick to the things that actually work with no problem, and if You say You never have a problem with it....I believe you would be one of the few....

    Probably the same thing I've done over the last 5 years or so. Slowly lose some of the passion I have for the team. It's not an intentional choice, it just seems to be happening. I've been very frustrated with this team due to Tomlin. In my eyes he is what's wrong with this team, and there's no sign of that changing anytime soon. I've noticed that I miss a lot more games than I used to. I don't buy Steelers memorabilia anymore. I don't participate much on the game day thread much anymore. Some of the passion is gone. I feel like we were always one of the best run teams in the league, and I simply don't see it anymore. This team can't seem to get out of its own way these days. Too scared to make the changes needed. It's killing my passion for the team, it really is.

    That's what people said about the first iphone: my phone works perfectly, why do i want a smart one?

    Streaming has lots of positives over satellite service:

    - I can go out to restaurants with family and then ignore them while streaming the game on my phone
    - I can take my kids to their weekend sport games and watch the steeler game with other parents
    - Sit on the porch on Sunday afternoon and smoke a cigar while watching games
    - Hit the dumper and not miss a play
    - Each family member can watch different games

    In time, they can add overlays and stats and tons of other features directly onto the feed.

    I like Sunday ticket just fine and would prefer that. Point I'm making is that change is coming. Better embrace it.

    When they get it without any problem....then I will get it...not until. Just like every year a new video game system came out....I'd let the .....OH I gotta have it now..buy it right away crowd get theirs, and then when they were on their 3rd one, and all the glitches were taken care of ,and the price dropped....then I would buy it.

    I have not read all the replies but it should be fun.

    To answer the OP I'll follow the Steelers and root for the best as I've done for many many moons.

    If he is here next season I'd assume the $$$$$$$ is the reason and I'd fear the Steelers will turn into the Pirates. (I doubt that would ever happen)

    You got that right. Where I live 90% of the time I got the Steelers year after year. This season I had game 1 and obviously the Eagle game (I was there anyhow) but that is it. Hate hate hate night football but am actually excited we have a MNF game just so I can see them.

    A coworker asked if there were parts of my life I can’t remember

    I said the 70’s

    He looked at me in disgust and said he meant something smaller

    In the spring I will look forward to the draft and shortly afterward be excited about the 6 or 7 future hall of famers we just drafted.

    Then training camp comes and the second round reach from Maryland gets cut in week three and my hopes start to sink.

    Season starts and we beat a good team then lose 4 of the next 5 . Two promising rookies never see the field but get snatched off our practice squad and start elsewhere.

    Confidence waning but still live n die with every win n loss.

    Another mediocre season and I look forward to the next draft.

    Someone please fix this I am getting nauseous on the merry-go-round of mediocracy.
