NFL doesn't luv 'da Stillers

We were saddened today by the fact that we went to go watch the new episode of Yinz Luv 'Da Stillers and were greeted with a video message that the NFL has found Jim's videos and doesn't want them on YouTube and blah blah blah (you can watch it below). Does it surprise anyone that the NFL has people out there looking for small, entertaining things like this just to ruin them? It doesn't us. It makes us sick the direction the NFL is headed. The fact that a humorous web show that's not making a profit is a threat to them is ridiculous. If anything, it's making people bigger fans. It's sad that the NFL is chasing off it's passionate fans in this way, but to us, it's no surprise. The NFL needs to fix a few things, and fast. We're huge football fans in general and love the Steelers ourselves obviously, but the NFL is just turning us off. We'll always be here, especially with good people like the Rooney's around, but it may not be in the same way towards the NFL as a whole if things keeping going down the tubes like they have. We know on certain things they may have a right, and we know other organizations have done similar things, but it doesn't really change our minds. It was an entertaining web show that made no money and if anything, promoted the NFL, and it's sick that today that's not allowed. We wish Jim good luck and hope Yinz Luv 'Da Guins continues and if there's any way to continue Yinz Luv 'Da Stillers that he will. Thanks for the laughs and we're sorry to see this happen.
