Ben says Cowboys are America’s team, Steelers are the world’s team

Kansas City Chiefs v Pittsburgh Steelers Getty Images

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger took a playful shot at Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in talking to reporters on Wednesday, and in the process made a statement that he thinks the Steelers have the top fan base in the NFL.

“He plays for ‘America’s Team,’ right?” Roethlisberger said of Romo, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I think the Steelers are the world’s team.'”

Ooh, burn. This could be fun if a bunch of NFL quarterbacks get in on it. Tom Brady could jump in and say, “Oh, yeah? Well, the Patriots are the galaxy’s team!” And then Peyton Manning could be all like, “Well, the Broncos are the universe’s team!”

Or maybe not. In any event, Steelers fans will have a big opportunity to show that they are, indeed, the best fan base in the NFL on Sunday at Cowboys Stadium. Cowboys fans are already expressing concerns about the number of Terrible Towels that will be waved in the stands in Dallas. America’s Team hasn’t enjoyed much of a home-field advantage since Jerry Jones built his new football palace in Dallas, and thousands of fans of the world’s team will be there to try to give the Steelers a bit of a road-field advantage on Sunday.

    The Cowboys haven’t been America’s team since the dawn of the 21st century, and no one I know outside of North America gives a damn about the Steelers. I’ve seen some jerseys, and none of them were Steelers.

  11. fuglyflorio says: Dec 13, 2012 12:15 PM

    There’s just way too many football players making public statements. I think the world would be a much better place if they said a lot less.

  12. binkystevens says: Dec 13, 2012 12:16 PM

    If the rapist says it, it must be true.

    And let’s get away from the whole America’s team nonsense. Just because the Cowboys are self proclaimed does not make it so.

    worn and recognized

  19. Davo says: Dec 13, 2012 12:22 PM

    Right there is the difference between “great” and “all time great” QB’s. Brady and Manning just concentrate on their own game and ignore the chirping of others.

  20. humbleminded85 says: Dec 13, 2012 12:24 PM

    The Steelers have a very strong local fanbase that consist of people who stuck with em through the good and bad(the 80’s) but unfortunately the mass majority of there fans are what I call front runner fans. Ones who like them just cause they win which with the many who jumped on in the 70’s, just trickled down to their kids and so on. Doesn’t mean there are not a fan, but when your born and raised in Sarasota Florida or somethin, your Steelers tattoo and your “diehard” fan claims just don’t have the merit as someone say from western P.A or somethin. Every fan base has them, but the Lakers, Yankees, and Steeler ones really stand out. All those who say somethin like”well my grandad was a Steeler fan so it’s in my blood” just remember your grandad had the Browns, Dophins, Bills, and any other team to hop on in the 70’s but none of those teams won 4 superbowls. Also your grandad wasn’t a Pirate or Penguins fan was he? I really don’t mean this insultingly, but it’s hard for one to argue that the Steelers aren’t the biggest frontrunner/bandwagon team.

  21. myroncopesflask says: Dec 13, 2012 12:31 PM

    As much as I loathe my fellow Steelers fans that actually live in the general Pittsburgh area there is one fact that cannot be disputed. Steelers fans are literally everywhere.
    As far as american sports teams are concerned there is no other team that “travels” as well as the Steelers fans. Although very few of them are actually traveling as most of “Steelers Nation” are displaced workers that left Pittsburgh after the mills shut down.
    The funny thing is that most Yinzers are too drunk or stupid to realize that Steelers Nation is reflection of the mass exodus not the 6 championships the team has won.

  22. dachozen1 says: Dec 13, 2012 12:32 PM

    I couldnt have said it better!! Steelers are beloved around the world and there is not a bar in America without a considerable Steeler showing. Steelers also have a lot of haters which is a big sign of respect. Unfortunately, people root against greatness and all great teams are frowned upon by other rooting interests less fortunate. GO STEELERS!!

  23. radrntn says: Dec 13, 2012 12:34 PM

    have to say last time I was in europe, and south america, all i saw was black and gold big ben jerseys……

    Cowboys might be americas team, and steelers might be , well whatever ben dreams of, but we all know there is only one nation!

  24. rayray5227 says: Dec 13, 2012 12:36 PM

    With Ben influencing the world populations with the amount of rapes he gets away with, that might be true.

  25. sellout3871 says: Dec 13, 2012 12:46 PM

    Steelers, Cowboys, Packers, these teams are all very popular because of their championship teams in the 70’s and because there were only a few TV Stations that showed games. The fact of the matter is that they have a large national fan base because we are a nation of front runners. I’ve been to games at Heinz Field, and if the Steelers are getting beat in the fourth quarter, those fans leave the stadium just like any other team in the NFL. But this is all coming from a Bengals fan, so what the heck do I know..

  26. whodeyinpa says: Dec 13, 2012 12:49 PM

    Being a Bengals fan I immediately disregard anything Little Ben has to say but having family and friends in the UK i know for a fact that the majority of people i’m in touch with over there are either Patriots or 49ers fans

  27. gunsnsabres says: Dec 13, 2012 12:54 PM

    Ironically, the Steelers were offered the title of “America’s Team” in the 70s, Rooney turned it down saying, “This is Pittsburgh’s Team”… Dallas was the 2nd choice…

  28. Steeley McBeam says: Dec 13, 2012 12:54 PM

    People calling Steelers fans bandwagon fans… Who are you to tell someone who their allowed to be a fan of?

    I was born in Monroeville PA just outside of Pittsburgh. I moved to MD when I was very young and would never even think about changing my favorite team. I watch Steelers games at a bar every sunday with at least 100 other fans who have been going to the same bar for years. None of them are bandwagon fans.

    Does it make me a bandwagon fan that I no longer live in Pittsburgh? No. Would it make me a bandwagon fan if I lived in China? Nope. Do I need to explain it to you like I just did? Absolutely not.

    To call a fan a bandwagon fan is a cop out. Sure there are fans who change teams for whatever reason, but to act like the Steelers have won 4 Super Bowls in a row and gained millions of new fans over that time is ridiculas.

  29. dragynj says: Dec 13, 2012 12:54 PM

    Thank god for some hype on this game! I’ll be there representing Steeler Nation (I’m a Vikings fan but going with my die hard Steeler fan Brother for his 40th Birthday). The last couple weeks this game has looked like it will be a snoozer. Now that Big Ben has opened his Big Yapper things are looking up! Hopefully Tony gets involved and the Steel Curtain comes through and crushes the Cowboys!!

    I for one will be waving a “Terrible Towel” in Jerry’s World, I dare to think about 40k of my closest friends will be as well.

    False. The city I live in has many bars and I’ve rarely seen a Steeler showing, much less a considerable one. Get out of western PA once in a while.

  31. stoogy says: Dec 13, 2012 12:57 PM

    Thats cute Ben! Think of that on your own? Maybe they should play some home games in London before they proclaim themselves as “The World Team”

  32. ocheeno22 says: Dec 13, 2012 1:00 PM

  33. rockthered1286 says: Dec 13, 2012 1:03 PM

    Hey bandwagon Steelers fans: name ONE player from the Penguins whose not Crosby, and one from the Pirates. Go on, show us your loyal to Pittsburgh and not just jumping on the Steeler bandwagon because they’ve won a few SB’s since 2000. Although maybe you’re all ready to jump off and onto the Giants bandwagon now? I mean they have won a few more recent SB’s…

  34. theobamaphones says: Dec 13, 2012 1:04 PM

    Another player upset at the America’s Team title. The world’s team, hah! That’s cute. Too bad you’re logic is flawed, as the Cowboys, not the steelers (or any other team) are one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world, the closest NFL teams are the Redskins, Giants, and Pats. The only way these teams would be up there with Manchester United and the Yankees would be if they were also the most popular. But hey Big Ben, if you tell someone something enough, let’s say “This is happening, just go with it.” enough then I guess people will believe you right? That’s the only logic I can see behind these comments.

  35. bangpow says: Dec 13, 2012 1:04 PM

    Ben is technically wrong.

    Art Rooney turned down the name of “America’s team” back in the 70’s because he said they were “Pittsburgh’s team”. So, the Cowboys essentially got sloppy seconds on that nickname.

  36. thesportsguy52 says: Dec 13, 2012 1:04 PM

  37. bhop49 says: Dec 13, 2012 1:05 PM

    I’m from the UK, the Steelers are very popular here in Britain and Europe just like the Dolphins, 49ers and the Patriots (younger generation), but none of those teams comes even close to the Raiders’popularity.
    I am a Redskins fanatic by the way.

  38. boblavoie says: Dec 13, 2012 1:06 PM

    Tom would never say anything like that – stay humble brothers for everyone knows the Patriots are God’s team and that is what counts.
    Now the Raiders are . . . . Never-mind.

  39. 8to80texansblog says: Dec 13, 2012 1:08 PM

    Ummm we all know that the Redskins are god’s team! Led by Jesus himself at QB, St. Peter at WR, and Gabriel at RB. They are coached by the holy spirit, and of course owned by god.

  40. theobamaphones says: Dec 13, 2012 1:08 PM

    meant to say top NFL franchise, as the other three mentioned are clearly in the tops as well….oh, and the Cowboys didn’t name themselves America’s Team, you can thank NFL films for that. Know your history kid.

  41. daysend564 says: Dec 13, 2012 1:08 PM

    Steelers aren’t even the best team in Pennsylvania, and that is saying something!

  42. trekker38 says: Dec 13, 2012 1:08 PM

    Ben is living in his own world. The Steelers are only the “world’s” team when they win. Then the hats, jerseys, and the ranting of their 6 championship wins is all over the place. When they lose, you see virtually no Steelers on the streets at all. It’s hiding week when that happens… So, really, the Steelers are the rulers of the “underworld….” Under it when losing, all over it when winning….

  43. yinzgotsix says: Dec 13, 2012 1:10 PM

    FACT: As Cowboy fans are about to witness, no team comes close to fan representation on the road as the Steelers do. Ask Cincinnati, Baltimore fans….any team will tell you that when the Steelers come to town they bring fans like no other.

    I went to the Cardinal -Steeler game last year and it was ~ 40% Steeler fans.

    Expect black and gold and Terrible Towels everywhere.

    @SteelyMcBeam.

    It’s easy rooting for the Steelers. It’s easy because they win consistantly, but you can’t seriously say that there would be as dedicated of a following if they were/are as bad as the Bengals on a consistant basis.

  52. daysend564 says: Dec 13, 2012 1:28 PM

    In the Superbowl against the Seahawks, the Steelers certainly were the refs team.

    ====================================

    Remember when Plax predicted the score to that first Giants/Pats superbowl, and Tom laughed it off and said something along the lines of “we’re only going to score 17? I think we’ll score more than that.” Tom goes out and leads the Patriots to score 14 and lose the game.

    Yeah, Tom is just the poster child for being humble.

    The steeler fans are like any others, when their team is good they are solid, back when they sucked my father used to go with bus loads of fans to old Pitt stadium and watch the browns crush the steelers. After 25 years of beat downs the steelers only lead the rivalry by about 7 games or less. What goes around comes around and they will be back to the old days again.

    From 1970-1979 the Green Bay Packers were 57-82-5 with a single central division title and a single playoff appearance that lead to a quick 1 and out.

  57. ravensos says: Dec 13, 2012 1:34 PM

    i can’t think of 2 more obnoxious fan bases.

    however, i think cowboys fans are definitely more “bandwagon”. there are lot of steeler fans nationwide because when the steel industry collapsed everybody spread out across the nation looking for work.

    cowboys fans are just little kids who got older that feel like they didn’t think get enough attention growing up.

    Last time steelers were in Dallas I went to that game. There were 30% Steelers fan there. The nice older lady sitting beside me had been a season ticket holder since the 70’s. she said she never saw so many opposing fans. Steelers travel better then any team. Ravens are lucky to have a few fans in each stadium when they travel.

    Before the PED cheating started in the 70’s, the Steelers finished over .500 SEVEN TIMES in their entire 40 year history. The laughingstock of the NFL.

    Can you blame them for turning to cheating?

I don’t care what the stats show, its impossible to get a accurate number of teams fans. I do know one thing for sure, Steeler Nation travels well. You see tons of steeler fans for games in Texas, you cant say the same about cowgirls fans traveling to Pittsburgh.

    One thing Steeler fans are is mathematically challenged. They always add about 20k onto the total of how many fans they had at opposing stadiums.

    40% Steeler fans at Cardinal-Steeler game? Really?

    24k Steeler and only 36k Cardinal fans? Really?

    They’ve touted it with every chance they’ve had for 35 years. Just like LeBron did with that “nickname”.

    Yes, the Steelers picked up a lot of fans around the world in the ’70s, and I was among them. But I’ve been a diehard fan for 35 years. And no, they weren’t winning all that time. I’d no sooner stepped on that “bandwagon” when they started sucking. But I stayed, brought my family along, and the next generation have been in Steelers gear since they were in diapers. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s about love for and loyalty to the organization. I have a personal letter on my wall from Dan Rooney thanking me for my loyalty and asking me to stay with the Steelers. I figure that trumps guy on a blog who figures he’s entitled to decide who is and isn’t a Steelers fan based on where people were born.

    In almost every major city in the US, there is a Steeler bar. I have met fans of the Steelers in other countries as well.

    I love going to away games and hearing the calls of “welcome to Heinz Field West (North, South, East) because of the large number of Steeler fans at the games. The best is when the a large number of those fans are locals.

    If the rapist says it, it must be true.

    And let’s get away from the whole America’s team nonsense. Just because the Cowboys are self proclaimed does not make it so.

    Bingo! the only places you see packer fans is in Chicago and Cincinnati because its close. SteelerNation is in every NFL stadium every game

    Steelers have won the most games since the merger 1970-2012 nobody counts those old asz AFL championship titles wiith leather helmets except the Colts & Packer fans and the old timers who playd back then. Three-Rivers Stadium was selling out tickets in the mid 80s when we had QBs like Kent Graham and Todd Blackledge..so all that bandwago talk can cease.

    blackngold4life:
    Kent Graham never quarterbacked the Steelers in the 1980s at Three Rivers Stadium. Too bad you bandwagon jumpers don’t know the history of the team…
    The Steelers QBs of the 1980s consisted of Terry Bradshaw, Cliff Stoudt, Mark Malone, Blackledge, David Woodley, Rick Strom and Walter Andrew Brister III (WB3?)
    You also probably think Ben Roethlisberger “won” six Super Bowls, huh?

    Meh I think Ben made a joke and most of the rest of you are overthinking and dramaqueening about it. Chill. Who cares?
