Are you saying that you think the Eagles have had a more successful decade than the Steelers?

As for the argument at hand, I am pretty sure that not a single person here has any idea who is really to blame here. Did the producer tell his staff not to send it? Maybe some intern messed something up. Whatever it is, FSN needs to handle it. The team and the league need to let them know that they aren't taking the situation lightly, but I don't think they should be looking to replace them just yet.

considering FSN Pittsburgh's ongoing, on-air love affair with Crosby/the Pens, this is hardly shocking.

Isn't that FSN Pittsburgh's job?


I understand what you're saying, and this was wrong. Just thought that phrase was funny.

We all kind of knew the organization had nothing to do with it, so that part shouldn't come as a surprise.

Thanks for saying. That said, this will not be ignored I am sure. But will be handled behind the scenes. The leagues legal department likely has been called in and hammered some. This is what we get paid for, not to address problems when the horse is out of the proverbial barn, but to anticipate that the barn door could break before it does. If I were the attorney for the league I would have a memo sent with appropriate language to be inserted in all future contracts that will give the league the power to impose penaties in future cases on the station if warrented. Also this would be something brought up for language in future CBA's. As for the team itself, if they were somehow involved the league I am sure has remedies already in its bylaws. It just seemed unlikely given some of the silly moves FSN has made in the past and how well run the Pens have been in the past to think that the team was involved at all. But if they were, I can not imagine that the league has no remedies.

I am not even an Eagles fan, but they seriously do not have a 0% chance to win the Superbowl next year. I was just pointing out the rationale behind the other guy's post that made it look like the FSN-P and Eagles were on the same probability plane. A team that makes the playoffs consistently has more than a 0% chance of winning a Superbowl due to the talent level, schematics and winning mentality. A team with zero chance of winning a SuperBowl this year would be a team like the Rams, Lions, Browns, Raiders, Chiefs...

Congrats on winning 2 Superbowls the last 4 years while missing the playoffs directly after, but I find it hard to deny the fact that the Steelers line is perhaps the worst in football due to Big Ben being consistently sacked top5 in the league his entire career. Even when you had Fanaca with Bettis/Parker carrying the team, Ben was constantly sacked the 10 times he actually dropped back to pass. I really do hope Ben can survive another 5 years in the NFL, he is great to watch. Also, that big bad defense didn't look so daunting without Troy, so hopefully he can come back into form next year.

Don't get into the ring debate, we all know that all but one of them (which is still more than my team, the Cleveland Browns) have proven to be tainted due to steroids and blatantly blown calls. I am sure you don't care though, because you have rooted for a winner with 6 rings while waving your terrible towel. Winners keep on winning while losers make excuses I guess.
