    The Steelers are known for having the best fan-base in the entire NFL. Embrace that. Be rabid. Wear your jersey even if it's ripped up and has pit stains and the Steelers are 0-9. If you see another Steelers fan, yell to them. Wave that Terrible Towel with pride!

Tips

  • The Terrible Towel is a must-have for Steelers fans.
  • Don't be a fan of the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, or the Cincinnati Bengals. Those are the Steelers' divisional rivals. Other rival teams you absolutely must hate to be a Steelers fan are the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and Oakland Raiders.
  • Throwback jerseys are great merchandise.

Warnings

  • You cannot be a fair-weather or sorta-kinda fan. Either you are 100% crazy, rabid, screaming-at-the-TV, talking-trash-at-opponents-fans kind of fan, or you aren't one at all. It's a commitment.

  • Steelers fanhood
