a warm glass of "Shut the Hell Up!"

Good Lord, they bitch and moan like no one else in the league.

Yes, the Patriots do it during the game...but the Giants do it before, during and AFTER the game.

Amazing gall. Especially when one considers the special circumstances the Steelers are forced to endure this week.

After Katrina, the Giants were happy to host the "home" team Saints, as they were not able to properly host a game.  And of
course, they took advantage of having to play "visitor" in their home stadium.

This time, the Steelers can't even stay there overnight. They have to travel the day of the game -- which is absolutely
ridiculous.  And a MAJOR advantage the Giants will have over the visitors.

With all of the other infrastructure challenges, why the heck hasn't this game been moved to Pittsburgh? I guarantee
there would be no problem selling that stadium out, even now.  But the league wouldn't want to rob their favorite home team
of a legitimate home game.

Of course, all of these challenges pale in comparison to what the average NJ and NYC resident is going through. But, I think in this instance Tuck should keep his trap shut about biases and help from the league.

And that pretty much sums it up.

Thanks, LFT.  Let me tell you, it is not easy staying drunk for a week straight.

You are getting old.  Y2 hasn't been sober for a week straight since '99.
