Pittsburgh's home record against teams with winning records is 1-3. (lost to Cincinnati, Jacksonville, and New England; beat Chicago)


We're not playing at home. That's the whole point of the stat.

My stat is correct. You read it wrong. I didn't say it was their "regular season opponents regular season record". I said it was their "opponents regular season record".

Do you really consider this game an "away" game? Didn't I just hear everyone say this was going to be considered a home game due to the proximity of Pittsburgh to Detroit?

How about this: as far as how many Steelers fans are going to be there compared to the rest of the crowd it's going to be like a home game.

Ok, but that's artificially creating distance between the two teams since you've played 3 playoff games as opposed to our two. Yeah I read it wrong but you're not comparing the same thing since the Steelers played more game.

Who cares really. The truth is one of us is going to be able to come back here in 24 hours and say "I told you so." Until then I don't care what silly statistic you think is going to determine the game.

Have you factored in that this is indoors and on turf?

Actually, I heard this morning on the radio, that barely any tickets go to fans from wherever.

http://www.sbxl.org/faq/ wrote:4. How do I get tickets to Super Bowl XL?

a. The NFL distributes approximately 1% of the tickets to fans through an annual Super Bowl random drawing. The drawing is not considered a lottery (there is no charge to enter). This is the NFL's only method of distributing tickets to the general public. The deadline for entry has passed; it was June 1, 2005.

More information:

Requests for the random drawing are accepted between February 1st and June 1st of each year, preceding the game. For Super Bowl XL the drawing will be in 2005. The drawing is held in October. There are no complimentary tickets available.


Specifics on ticket breakdown:

* The two participating teams each get 17.5% of the allotment
* Each of the 29 remaining teams receive 1.2% of the allotment (or 35% of the total)
* The NFL uses 25% for corporate sponsors, charity and other league related needs
* The Host Team (the Detroit Lions) receive about 5% of the allotment

Whoever wins the battle at the line of scrimmage will win this game.

Pittsburgh defensive front against Seattle's offensive line. Whoever's fat guys out muscle the other fat guys will determine the victor of this game today.
