Steelers win won’t result in more same-day travel

The NFL is the ultimate copycat sports league.  Thus, with the hotel-less Steelers treating Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium like a home game and staying at their usual hotel in Pittsburgh before flying on Sunday morning to New Jersey and beating the defending Super Bowl champions, other teams will consider same-day travel, right?

Wrong.

The league will strongly discourage it, as one source explained it to PFT earlier today.  When it comes to same-day travel, inconvenience to the road team pales in comparison to the risk that, due to travel delays from plane issues or weather, the visiting team won’t get to the game in time for kickoff.

So look for same-day travel to continue to happen in only the rarest of circumstances.  And look for teams that have to do it in the future to do exactly what the Steelers did today.

    Whooped em. 3 horrific calls that led to 14 points. Your offense worked all night for 6 points. Steelers were better in every aspect of the game. We’re just getting started…..B Roth MVP

    Eh? The Giants don’t have a rapist for a quarterback. They’re 6-3, so it isn’t a big deal. The Giants will go to the playoffs, and we’ve seen what happens when they go to the playoffs.

    Steelers spared the refs a huge controversy. Hope they appreciate it.

    They need to fine the refs for blatant BS calls. Then maby they will stop listening to players and fans and call the damn game. This isn’t the WWF. Right…..????

    They should allow it for teams that live close to each other

    Was a class act by the Steelers and their owners. Leave the food and beds for the ones that truly need it. I’ll look at the Steelers in a different light from here on. Thank you for caring.

    “Whooped em”? Granted Steelers outplayed Giants tonight. However you beat a team that was outplayed by 4 points. If the Giants offense had showed up tonight, who do you think would have been whooped?

    Actually, whooped em is correct considering 14 of NYs points were due to pass interference that wasn’t pass interference, a flagged head shot that wasn’t a head shot, and a fumble that wasn’t a fumble.

    I went to Caltech, and one year we were playing a team from Mexico (either Tijuana Tech or Mexicale Institute of Technology, aka MIT), and the visiting team got stopped at the border and never made it to the game (and since this was before the cellphone era, couldn’t call to tell us). We waited in the stands of the Rose Bowl for two hours, drinking beer, seeing how far we could throw Frisbees from the top of the bowl, and listening to the cheerleaders (from a local high school) make up new cheers such as “We want a football game… yea!”
