    First you have the world famous Pittsburgh Steelers absolutely humiliating the Arizona Cardinals in the Superbowl, winning a record SIXTH championship. If you add up all the championships won by the Bills, Bengals, Titans, and Jaguars and multiply them by a million you won't equal the amount of championships won by the Steel Curtain.

    Then, you got the Penguins in similar fashion destroying every team that got in their way and pounded their way through the Stanley Cup championship and facing Detroit in the finals. From there, it ONLY took them seven games to finish the Red Wings off. Pittsburgh is the ONLY city to have won the Lombardi and Stanley Cup championships in the same year.

    Finally, you have Pittsburgh's own Big D who won every debate he took part in on the US Message Board website. A truly amazing feat!

    Pittsburgh is again, as it will be for the end of time, the city of champions!

    Savor the Championship because it might be Pittsburgh's Last
    Because No Sport should have a salary cap
    and the Steelers and Penquins would face
    the same thing that Pirates face 16 consecutive losing seasons ?
    How would you like it if the Steelers and Penquins matched that.

    Only Assholes perpetuate a Salary Cap in Sports.
    No one has a salary cap in their job - Do they ?

    So I'd say Pittsburgh was the Luckiest City in the USA.

    I'm a Philly Phan and we'd win everything without a salary cap.

    America thou would feel sorry for small cities like Pittsburgh.

    I never understood how adults can get so emotionally invested in a sports team.

    For Christ's sake grow up already and spend your time energy and money on things that actually matter.

    Fuck Pitburg.

    Cheatin pieces of shit. How about that "imaculate" bounce pass?

    How about having a ref that lives in pitburg calling several PI's on Seattle and none on his home team?

    You must be proud.

    Sports are a nice distraction, but I agree with you that immediately after winning it all or losing it all, really it doesn't make a damn bit of difference.

    Its crazy how emotionally invested we get and then all of the sudden its over and it really doesn't matter.

    But, if you went downtown for all 4 games in Detroit, you'd see that it does matter to the business' that were packed with sports fans.

    How many home games did Pittsburg play in the finals? 3? We had 4 home games. So keep the stanley cup. Detroit needed the $ that we made by having that extra home game. It would have been nice to win too, but we made more money than you.

    Talk about a glass half full, huh?

    Quote: 4 of the 6 NFL champs were without salary cap

    and that was just after the Civil war
    and the 1970's in no way look anything like the 2000's
    soon to be 2010's.

    And the Eagles won three Championships 48,48 & 1960.
    while Pittsburgh Steelers up until the 1970's were prennial LOSERS.

    So you think that the Steelers will not be able to win a Superbowl because their last championship before the cap was in 1980. Meanwhile, the eagles will be successful even though they NEVER won a superbowl, cap or not. The NFL shares 80% revenue. That is why they're successful, not because of the cap. Like it or not but the Steelers have SIX championships as oppose your ZERO. Don't get me wrong if the Steelers are not going to win the Superbowl then I hope the Eagles do. Their players and fans certainly deserve it.
