We can hope, right?? :weenie:

Interesting speculation in the NYC forum, about how winter years that end in 1-2 kind of suck, for instance...

2011-12 dead ratter

2001-02 dead ratter

1991-92 m'eh, an occasional nickel & dimer in there

1981-82 a good winter as I recall

1971-72 starting to get a bit before my time, but I don't think it was anything special

Is there some sort of physical cycle at work here, or just random coincidence? I suspect the latter, but maybe that's because I'm a weenie who wants a snowy winter.

On one hand, the Pacific decadal oscillation is a thing that pros and amateurs alike have been trying to find correlations with our winter weather for, well, decades. OTOH, that would mean this winter's prone to suckage. I guess we'll find out!

Yeah, I'm going to keep it simple this year. If I start hearing talk about Pac jet extensions, I'm closing the blinds...lol!

Eagles fans > Steelers fans though and it's not even close. Judging by the pirates and pens, when those teams suck, they're lucky to fill half the building. It's not really hard to support a winner. Eagles will probably suck this year but I bet they sell out every game. If the Steelers had the Eagles history, that franchise would probably be playing in another city before they won their first super bowl in 2017. Pittsburghers are bandwagon AF.

Pirates > Phillies

5 > 2

Penguins > Flyers

5 > 2

Eagles almost moved to Arizona

Athletics moved to KC

Warriors moved to the golden state

Eagles almost moved to arizona because of their owner... they still drew 55,000 fans a game the year that took place despite their 3rd straight losing season so it had nothing to do with attendance.

 

Athletics moved in 1955 and were the 2nd pro team in the city

Warriors moved in 1962 and were the 2nd pro team in the city

 

Pittsburgh struggles to support their ONE franchise when they aren't doing well. I doubt you watch the Pirates like most Pittsburghers when their team sucks but if you did, you'd see they are lucky to draw 10K a night despite having the nicest park in baseball. Once Sid retires, I'm sure that the rumors of moving to KC or Houston will fire up again unless daddy Bettman gifts the franchise another generational talent so that their 'diehard fans' don't abandon the team(again).

loser speak from a loser city

16 - 7

even though Pittsburgh doesn't have a hoops team we'll count the sixers championships so it doesn't look like a total asswhooping

No offense but this is old news for years if you follow basketball/sports. I hope the Sixers just dock pay all year when he holds out...care less if they receive anything in return. 

This would never happen but I wish the owner would just say **** you to him and make him sit out 4 years of his prime. **** Ben Simmons, biggest bitch of all time.

Oh I'm aware, I watch just as much Philly sports as I'm sure you do. Although, I was admittedly a Ben apologist. Thought more of him than I should have.
