Super Bowl XL Champions! The Steelers were established as the Pittsburgh Pirates (like the baseball team) in 1933 by Art Rooney. Rooney invested his winning from amateur boxing and betting on horse racing into what would became the league's most legendary team. Changing their name to Steelers in 1941, the team struggled mightily for most of the their first 40 years of existance, despite having some hall of fame players like John Henry Johnson and Bobby Layne. Everything turned around in 1972. Pittsburgh shocked everyone by making the playoffs, but they appered to be destined to an early exit, trailing 7-6 to the Raiders with time running out. But a miracle happened. Hall of fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw threw an errant pass. Runningback Frenchy Fuqua collided with Raiders' cornerback Jack Tatum, the ball bounced up, and landed in the hands of hall of fame runningback Franco Harris. Touchdown. The Immaculate Reception was born. The winning ways would continue with 8 straight playoff berths and 4 Super Bowl championships- Super Bowls IX, X, XIII, and XIV belonged to Pittsburgh. The 1970s teams are considered perhaps the greatest in history with hall of famers like Bradshaw, Harris, receivers John Stallworth and Lynn Swann, defensiveback Mel Blount, linebackers Jack Lambert and Jack Ham, among others. Were up and down in the 1980s with 4 playoff berths, but turned it around when Bill Cowher became coach in 1992, ratling off 6 straight playoff berths, but unfortunatly losing the Super Bowl in 1995. Have made the playoffs 4 times in the last 5 years. Last season, they embarked on an incredible run, winning Super Bowl XL after winning 3 straight road playoff games. This gave young quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Cowher, and legendary runningback Jerome Bettis their first titles. Pittsburgh's 5 Super Bowls have tied San Francisco and Dallas for the most all time. The Steelers are known for having amazing fans, who often travel to watch their team's road games.
"And in his hometown of Detroit, Jerome Bettis gets to celebrate. There's going to be a party on the streets of Pittsburgh tonight, as the Pittsburgh Steelers have won Super XL for their 5th title!"

One of the few teams that commissioner Roger Goodell "kisses ass" for. They always get their own way, and find a way to "scrumble" into post season by cheating and paying their way to get there. Most of Steelers fanbase consists of African Americans who think they know sports, and other variety of thugs.

The Steelers also are a team full of criminals. Thats why they play in a dump town anyways... Might as well throw Casey Anthony in the mix.
Guy 1: Hey who is your favorite team in football?
Guy 2: I like the Pittsburgh Steelers
Guy 1: Wow you really are a piece of shit.

A shitty football team owned by the Rooney Family, synonamous for having ties with the Illuminati. The NFL of course doesn't wanna get in trouble with the Illuminati, and the NFL sees its earning potential significantly increased if the Steelers are doing good. So the NFL instructs referees to make bullshit ridculous calls against teams to give the Steelers an advantage. In addition, they have a fake fanbase constructed of retarded people who are all Steelers fans and Phillies fans. They like to make fun of the Ravens because they are too thug for their pussy ass fans. They also pull out the bullshit "we have 6 rings" thing which they never even seen four of them. They claim that Ravens fans always make excuses, but if the Steelers lose they will imeediately pull out the "Troy wasn't playing" exuse, or "Ben wasn't playing". No you fucking lost because you got beat by a better team. Maybe if Troy wasnt a pussy and Ben wasnt raping women they would be playing.
Person 1: I love the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Phillies
Person 2: I love Pittsburgh and the Yankees

Person 3: You both are fucking retarded you just like the teams that are catored to by the referees, why dont you like the Pirates? Why, because they suck and you're all just a bunch of bandwagon shitheads.

Person 1 and Person 2 at the same time: HEY 6 RINGS MAN! how many rings does your team have? How many hall of famers do you have?

Person 3: One Ring because we were an expansion franchise that's only 15 years old, and we dont have any hall of famers because we still have players from the original team still on the team.

Person 1 and 2: 6 RINGS MAN!!!!
