The Steelers are retarding the city of Pittsburgh. This city cannot evolve until it lets go of the 1970s. Somebody needs to plan an intervention for the whole fucking city and disband the team or send them elsewhere, at least for a while. This is not a commentary on the team itself, or the members of it, but a commentary on our city’s bad case of plot-loss. The same way an alcoholic can’t get his life back together until he gets off the bottle, Pittsburgh can’t get its act together until the Steelers are gone. We need to grow beyond football. For the past 30 years, it’s all we’ve had or cared about.
