No sports fan enjoys losing, but according to a recent survey, Steelers fans hate it more than most.
US Bets surveyed more than 2,000 NFL fans, and ranked Pittsburgh fans fourth among the sorest losers in the league.
Only fans of the Cowboys, Patriots and Eagles take losses harder.
In additions, 25% of fans admitted they became physically upset after their team suffers a loss. One in ten fans said their team’s performance negatively impacts their work.
US Bet also asked fans which quarterbacks and coaches they believe to be the sorest losers in the NFL, and Ben Roethlisberger and Mike Tomlin both found themselves in the top six.
Roethlisberger was ranked as the fifth-worst loser, while Tomlin slotted in at six.
It is no surprise Steeler fans, Roethlisberger and Tomlin have a distain for losing, as they haven’t done it very much.
Since Pittsburgh drafted Roethlisberger in 2004, the Steelers have lost just 99 regular season games. They have also reached the Super Bowl three times, winning twice.
