The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The team currently belongs to the North Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the oldest franchise in the AFC. Pittsburgh has won more Super Bowl titles (six), won more AFC Championship Games (eight) and played in (fifteen) and hosted more (eleven) conference championship games than any other AFC or NFC team. The Steelers share the record for most Super Bowl appearances with the Dallas Cowboys (eight). The Steelers won their most recent championship, Super Bowl XLIII, on February 1, 2009.

The Steelers were founded as the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 8, 1933, by Art Rooney, taking its original name from the baseball team of the same name, as was common practice for NFL teams at the time. The ownership of the Steelers has remained within the Rooney family since its founding. The current owner is Art's son, Dan Rooney, who has given much control of the franchise to his son Art Rooney II. Long one of the NFL's flagship teams, the Steelers enjoy a large, widespread fanbase nicknamed Steeler Nation. The Steelers currently play their home games at Heinz Field on Pittsburgh's North Side in the North Shore neighborhood, which also hosts the University of Pittsburgh Panthers. Built in 2001, the stadium replaced Three Rivers Stadium which hosted the Steelers for 31 seasons. Prior to Three Rivers, the Steelers had played their games in Pitt Stadium and Forbes Field.

I have been a Steeler Fan since 1963 (Buddy Dial, John Henry Johnson). The team had little talent back then, but always played hard and tough. Because of this, I watched and listened to a lot of games inspite of the poor quality of play. Then they hired a guy named Chuck Noll and over time, things got unbelievably good for a very long time. There have been some bad times and multiple losing seasons, but I have always been proud to wear my Steeler gear. Unfortunately, with all the "ME" players, zero leadership from players, Coach, and OWNER in addition to soft, undisciplined and SELFISH play on the field, I can no longer wear my Steeler gear in public and no desire to wear it at home. The team has become an embarrassment. Hopefully, Mr. Rooney will step up and do WHATEVER IT TAKES to get things back on track. Now if you will excuse me, I have to go out and buy my Leveon Bell rap CD. Great team player!
