Steelers fans hysterically respond to Pittsburgh playing on Christmas for the second straight year

Sometimes you have to get the pulse of the fan base when it comes to NFL decisions, and when the Steelers were scheduled on Christmas day again, fans weren’t happy.

Want to really gauge what is going on with fans and their thoughts on decisions made by the NFL? Head to social media. Doesn’t matter which platform, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and you will see what fans really think.

When it comes to the NFL schedule release, fans have every reason to gripe, because guess who will be dishing out their hard earned money to help give the billion dollar industry more money?

Right. The fans.

Before the schedule was officially released on Thursday at 8 p.m., Jeremy Fowler of ESPN tweeted the leak of the Steelers traveling to the Houston Texans on Christmas day.

When seeing this, I wasn’t happy. Not after last season when the team played on every major holiday during the year. My four little kids just don’t seem to understand it, but I have a job to do.

I wasn’t the only person unhappy.

But that isn’t the story here. The story is about my response to Fowler’s, and our followers’ hilarious responses to mine.

Just read some of these responses...

I guess one man’s disappointment is another man’s pleasure. At least it is good to see Steelers Nation having a sense of humor about the Steelers playing on the biggest Christian holiday again next season.
