    Default Steelers to lose Super Bowl Trophies

    Steelers to lose Super Bowl Trophies

    Pittsburgh, PA. The Super Bowl XLIII Champion Pittsburgh Steelers, the only team to win six titles, will soon be losing half of those trophies. After a meeting between NFL Commissioner Rodger Gadel and President Barack Hussein Obama, Obama decided to redistribute half of their Steeler Super Bowl victories and trophies to less fortunate teams in the league.

    ?We live everyday in the country that invented the Super Bowl.? said Obama ?We are not about to lose this Great American tradition in the wake of these difficult times.? Obama?s plan calls for the Steelers, who are a successful NFL team, to give half of their Super Bowl trophies to teams that are not successful or have not been as successful as the Steelers. ?The Detroit Lions are just as much a part of the same fiber of the NFL as the Steelers and they should, no rather will, be entitled to a Super Bowl Trophy as well.? Obama explains in his plan that he has imposed on Godel and the NFL.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers, who by virtue of hard work, excellent team play, stellar draft choices, responsible investing of free agents, careful hiring of coaches and excellent community service and commitment to their fans, has prospered greatly during the past 30 years and have won six Super Bowl Trophies. But President Barack Hussein Obama?s plan calls for the Pittsburgh Steelers to carry the larger burden of the NFL?s less successful teams. Obama went on to further proclaim, ?In these difficult times we are all in this to work together. We must reclaim the NFL Championship Dream for every team, for every city and for every fan.?

    ?My plan will not affect 31 of the 32 teams in the league.? Obama assures. That?s over 95 percent of the teams in the NFL will not have to worry about losing any Super Bowl Trophies. ?The worst teams in the NFL and the teams that can?t seem to get a break and win a championship will no longer have to worry about going without a title.? Obama promises. ?We are a country and league of hope. We all need to make a change. It does not matter the color of the teams uniforms, the personal decisions that the teams make or their performance but rather if they are a member of this great American league.?

    The Super Bowl XLIII trophy will be redistributed to the 0-16 Detroit Lions. Through no fault of their own incompetence, the Lions could not manage a victory all season and this trophy will help ease the pain of their lack of performance and give them hope once again. The redistribution of Super Bowl XL trophy will go directly to the Steeler?s division rival the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals who also have fallen on hard times have never won a Super Bowl. This victory will bring a smile to hundreds of Bengal fans all over the world as they can now celebrate. Finally, one of the Steeler?s two Super Bowl victories over the Dallas Cowboys will go back to the Cowboys since the league needs to provide hope in the face of difficulty and provide hope in the face of uncertainty. This is a heavy burden for the Steelers but together we can all prosper.

    All hope is not lost for Pittsburgh fans; Barack Hussein Obama has another plan in place. Obama has met with MLB and commissioner Bud Selig on a similar plan. The New York Yankees will redistribute two of their World Series trophies to the Pittsburgh Pirates as a supplement to their losing 16 straight seasons and counting. This plan will help stimulate the Pirates and enable them to regain the American Dream. Barack Hussein Obama will be meeting with the NHL and Michael Phelps in the upcoming weeks as this issue is high on his agenda for ?Hope and Change.?

    I wonder if there is any way to help out the Vikings too.Can't some of those other teams with more than one trophy chip in ? It's only fair.

    Via Robert, this is a spoof, but based on Obama’s actions lately, I wouldn’t rule something like this happening.

    This was on the top of the web page. If they, Steelers, were too lose 3 than I would expect the 0-16 Detroit Lions and I think both Buffalo and Vikings are 0-4. Plus has Buffalo has the only running back murderer in the Hall of Fame, a huge albatros for them.

    What's funniest about this is that it centers on a business that is one of the closest things to pure socialism in our country.

    We have a government sanctioned monopoly -- the NFL -- where games are played in stadiums that are primarily financed by public funds (justified by the general "economic" benefits associated with having a team).

    The primary sources of revenues -- broadcast rights -- are negotiated collectively by the NFL acting on behalf of the individual teams. Revenues are then divided without regard to where they were generated to provide each team with its base revenues. The amount of money each team can then pay for players is capped at a level affordable to all teams as one of many actions to make teams more competitive. The total amount is negotiated with the players' union along with minimum (but very generous) pay scales that stipulate the lowest amounts players may be paid based on their years of experience and otherwise unrelated to performance.

    Recruitment is strictly regulated to prevent the players from selling their talents to the highest bidder and to prevent teams from using their economic power to purchase a talent advantage. Many owners continue to complain that free agency is destroying the game by permitting players more negotiating leverage. However, the effect is contained by the overall salary caps. In fact, the worst performing teams get first crack at the best players.

    Why is all this done? Because the owners believe that it is collectively more profitable in the long run to help all teams to be competitive rather than to let the best teams secure their leadership positions by leveraging their economic power.

    The Detroit Lions should get at least one Steeler trophy but maybe we should also remove from the Hall of Fame some of the Steeler players and add players of lesser abilities...preferably football players who are also democrats or commies.

    And maybe the NFL should consider a small patch of Dear Leader on uniforms this year.

    What you seem to miss is that teams have to play each other for the league to exist. P&G doesn't need Colgate to exist to sell its product. McDonald's won't open two stores next to each other. NFL teams are not individual corporations, but more like franchises who are individually owned, but restricted by the franchise owner.

    If all unions worked the way the player's union works, then there wouldn't be an issue with unions. They collectively bargain certain things, but an individual will make his own contract and be evaluated on his merits. In most unions, people are paid the same amount regardless of one's productivity. There is no incentive to perform and what often happens is hard workers are bullied into slowing down. Another example of the leftist version of "survival of the weakest"

    If Obamas' new NFL plan is to be really fair he will first have to redistribute the existing 43 trophies around the league equally so that each team has one.There are currently 5 teams that have never been to the Super Bowl and a fiew that have but never won.After this there will be 11 extra trophies.Obama will need to have 21 new trophies made.This will help to stimulate the economy in addition to keeping things fair.Now that each team,regardless of thier performance,will have two trophies each.After that is done,32 trophies will be awarded at the end of each season,one to each team,from now on.Only the fans that have sky boxes will pay higher ticket prices to offset the cost of this new plan.

    Jeff,
    The NFL is one business with 32 franchises. Its competitors are all other professional and college sports as well as all other Sunday (and Monday night) entertainment options. Pretty much free-market competition. So far, they've done a pretty good job of competing.

    No one forces us to watch or attend any of the games.

    We have no options in regards to higher taxes, socialized medicine and bumbling bureacrats that the uneducated and socialist vote into office!

    We need voter reform!
