    Jamie Dukes chimes in. Insightful as always.

    “History shows that when you disrespect the towel, bad luck comes your way,” analyst Jamie Dukes said in this video that reviews the history of the Terrible Towel curse.

    For those of you that don’t know, the Towel, which was created by the late Myron Cope, is owned by Allegheny Valley School, and the proceeds go to supporting the 1,000+ students who are either mentally challenged or have a physical defect.
    To disgrace the Towel is more than simply disgracing the Steelers, but to slap in the face of those kids.
    Reality is, when people disrespect the Towel, BAD things happen to them. In more cases than mentioned above, other teams have disrespected and paid the price as well.
    Rice will see. This IS going to be bad for him.
    and yet, if some OTHER team decides to wave a towel around, "It's a Steeler thing!" Can't have it both ways...either it's a towel to raise money for that and anyone can do it without getting shit, or it's a Steeler thing and dragging it through the mud just shits on the Steelers.

    In any case, he wasn't disrespecting it, he traded his gloves with a fan for their towel. What does THAT say about how their fan views their towel, eh?

    Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!

    I wonder how many of the yinzers actually know that it does benefit a charity. Fuck the towel. Ray didn't do anything disrespectful. And if Steeler fans want to bitch, they should blame the front runner that traded it to him.

    Maybe we ARE supposed to burn them!
    Some guys lit one on fire on the steps near my seats 2 years ago. Pussy Yinzers (to whom the towel did not even belong in the first place) texted it into the M&T "help-my-sorry-ass" line, but then chickened out when it came time to i.d. the arsonists. But Lord the toxic black polyester smoke that jizz rag pumped out was beyond pollution!!

    Regardless, we have no beef with him, since he meant no disrespect.

    This is a non issue for most decent Steeler fans. The Terrible benefits a good cause. Ray Rice is a class act and a helluva football player. Woolley needs to work on stepping up his game down the stretch instead of creating sound bites. IMHO

    Are you a player? Didn't think so. Curse only works on players.
