i am not saying to ignore history. if anything i agree to research your teams history to know the roots. however, you can know all the stats and results of the first 4 steelers superbowls but if you did not witness them i dont see how as a fan you can claim them. you weren't 'there' to witness the season. witnessing the team win the superbowl is much more than that game. witnessing the journey is a huge difference. watching a team go through ups and downs, critical drives, good wins, bad losses, turmoil, etc. you can watch all the tape one wants but it doesnt compare with living and witnessing that championship season. just my point of view.
See this Niner fans???
