Like the Steelers. Pittsburgh is a small market, which is why the Pirates haven't been competive since 91 or 92. The Steelers have one of the best fan bases in football
, but after a few years of trying to paying top dollar to keep athletes would start to drain the organization.
I think the Pirates have a pretty good fan base too considering they haven't won in 13 years and still get tens of thousands of people to show up to the games. Montreal and Florida couldn't do that.
But as far as the NFL goes...I don't think the Steelers would be in bad shape because there are just a ton of Steelers fans young and old. Of course, the Steelers really haven't known sustained losing since...well, ever. If they do we'll have to see what happens.
