    Most will say no one deserves special treatment but it would be awesome if the Steelers could arrange for the WATT Parents to be their special guests at Heinz Field this weekend to see their 3 sons play in a NFL game together... C'mon Art ... make it happen.

    Meh. If no other parents or fans cannot attend the game then they can put their cardboard cut outs up in the stands if necessary. There should be no preferential treatment or else it creates unnecessary drama. I could see something like that dividing a locker room.

    I don’t think the rules will permit that although it would be great if they could attend the game.

    For this game it’s a Steelers rule. They on their own declared no fans for the first two games.

    I'll bet there are some people somewhere in that stadium watching the game. Have no proof, just using common sense.

    Cardboard cutouts of their parents!!!! That is freaking funny! Put them in the first row behind the steelers sideline. LMAO.

    I do agree though that this would be totally out of line and would most definitely be a lightning rod for criticism.

    Hey IZONUFOTO.


    I do not think that we ever chatted. So hello and here we go my friend.

    It would be a kind gesture as long as we knock the living snot out of the opposing team. Go Steelers!

    I'd assume that as much as they would like to be there the Watt parents will be at Derek's house with his pregnant wife and the grandson. Not sure if JJ's wife made the trip but if she did she will probably be there as well, nice get together to watch the boys play and get quality time.

    Hey IZONUFOTO.

    Yes, it would have been a very kind gesture for sure. I am glad we won and that was probably not even in the forefront of their parents' minds. I am pretty sure that they were just so proud to be taking in that glorious, most fortunate and unique moment in all of their lives. Great Stuff for the Watt family! A class act.

    They couldn't get them into the stadium? I find that hard to believe, the stands are completely empty. Couldn't have put them in a box?
