Is the fan base divided?

Is our house (the fan base) divided? I know we love the black and gold, watch or go to the games and blog endlessly about  our  "Stillers" and all that but I am afraid we might have a problem that I would love if the BTSC community could weigh in on. I feel that within the fan base many people have reached conclusions, rightly or wrongly, that have moved them to firm beliefs that I have never been witness to in my years as a Steeler fan. (b1974.. fan since early 80s)

Never before do I remember so many comments about having trouble supporting a team because of one player. Well, some of the Kordell years were bad but I do not remember the extremism I think is out there today.

Yes, the games will be played on the field, but does anyone think we have a problem within the Nation?
