Saturday Night Steelers Open Thread: A budding bromance?

Come and join this merry band of Steelers’ faithful for some lively debate about our Steelers, good food and the merits of the odd cold beverage.

Lots of snow here in the great white north and yet I know it is on borrowed time. It has been a colder and snowier than normal winter here, but I take comfort in knowing spring is coming. How soon it get’s here is really unknown but will the Steelers find their next franchise QB sooner or later...

For those of you that don’t often read, or maybe are even completely unaware of, the Fanpost section, I encourage you to check it out. The Fanpost section is literally where this Saturday Night feature started. It is also a spot where the average fan can start up a conversation dedicated to any topic of their choosing.

This section also can give you the opportunity to get a more personal discussion with other posters due to the fact that there tends to be less traffic over there. Nonetheless, it can take you to some interesting places. Take for instance...

This particular article and the comments that followed put some meat on the bones of the true value of BTSC. Yes, it certainly has a budding bromance feel to it... However, what I really enjoyed was the fact that two posters went past being internet warriors and became real people. They traded some emails to settle a bet and made cool connection. I realize that this might be more than what the average poster wants from here, but the takeaway of “I bet 99.9% of us could sit down and have some beers and chow with others around here and chat up all the things we have in common for our love of the Steelers” is vital to keeping the good thing we have here.

Far too often I find in our passionate responses we forget that at the end of the day we all love the Steelers and want them to be successful. After all, the majority of us come here not for the articles, but for the comments. We have to make sure that the comment sections keep as many people as possible coming back.

  1. Do your read the Fanpost section? Did you even know it existed? Have you ever written a Fanpost? If not, why not?
  2. Much has been made of the Rams / Stafford situation. If the Steelers could ‘fix’ their O Line through FA, would you be ok with giving up 2 firsts and a third to get a 32 ish year old QB to go all in?
  3. With prices for a single ticket to the big game starting just under 10K on the resale market, would you pay that up to go see the Steelers?
  4. Now that Jim Harbaugh has been turned down by the Vikings, he has returned to coach Michigan once again (#fireharbaughnow). I am not a fan of Mr. Khakis but I do cheer for the maize n blue. Which coach (of your fav team) have you wished would leave even when the team was winning?
  5. What winter sport are you enjoying or missing this year?
