I think this is a question that I probably couldn’t answer unless/until it actually happened. I’m a Pittsburgh Steelers fan for two reasons...they are the “local” team, and more importantly, my dad was and raised me as a Steelers fan.
Would I remain a fan if they moved to LA? Hard to say...but I’d be mighty fucking pissed off!!!

As for what ifs...
I prefer,
What if I won the $100 million Power Ball?
What if I were married to Paige Spiranic? :shock:
What if I were appointed king of the world?
:mrgreen:

1) studies show there is a good chance you’ll mismanage that found wealth and be broke within X number of years from hitting the jackpot.

2) Will divorce you as a result of #1.

3) Off with his head...

There are certain teams in this league that just have far too much history to move.

We are one of those teams.

Count Dallas in that group too.

Raiders as well IMO. They should have remained in Oakland with the lame ass Chargers going to Vegas.

Same could have been said about the Colts and Browns. Say what you will about the Rooneys, but they are deeply loyal to the community and fans.

One could argue the Colts & Browns success was earlier and prior to modern era.

Agree on the Rooneys.

My main point is there are two types of teams in this league.

Steelers, Cowboys, Dolphins, Bears etc

VS.

Jaguars, Texans, Chargers etc.

One group has tradition and a long & loyal fan base while the other doesn’t.

Polt, I would likely not be as fervent a fan if the Giants as the Steelers.

Oh, I know.

Because there is a 0.0% chance the Steelers are moving.

Other important questions
1) What would you do if the Moon collided with the Earth?
2) What would you do if your significant other revealed she's from another planet?
3) What would you do if your dog secretly got a PHD in astrophysics?

I was just curious whether peoples' love for the Steelers was connected to the city or whether people loved the Steelers as their own entity. And people have given interesting answers.

Sheesh, tough crowd.

Poltargyst, my post was meant to be funny.

But if you wish for a more direct answer. I grew up in Pittsburgh, and most of us that grew up in Pittsburgh find the suggestion of the Steelers (hypothetically) moving to Los Angeles to be at least mildly offensive.

Ok

Let's say the Chargers are still in San Diego, and the Rams are still in St. Louis, and for some reason the Steelers move to LA. What is your reaction? Do you

1) Continue to watch the Steelers as your favorite team in their new home
2) Say F the Steelers, pick a new favorite team, and root for them
3) Say F the Steelers, don't pick a new favorite team, but still watch the NFL, content to watch whatever teams happen to be good at the time
4) Say F the NFL and have nothing more to do with it.


1) Continue to watch the Steelers as your favorite team in their new home

What do I care, I moved out of Pittsburgh 26 years ago, I root for the uniforms, not the city.

As a second choice, I might just do #2, I live in Baltimore, maybe just become a Ravens fan purely for the personal convenience of living 15 minutes from the stadium of the team I'm rooting for, guaranteed EVERY GAME on local TV and becoming in synch with my neighbors, I'd especially consider that if the Steelers weren't in the AFC North anymore.

I’d feel dirty doing such a thing. Couldn’t bring myself to enjoy it.

That is almost like saying you’d fuck your sister for personal convenience now that mom & dad are divorced. Yuk.
