These past 24 hours have been shocking for fans of the AFC’s two best teams to say the least.

The minute it was announced that former Pittsburgh Steelers all-time sack leader James Harrison would be signing with rival New England Patriots, it wasn’t just fans who were bonkers about the move.

Patriots players took to twitter to voice their excitement about Harrison joining their squad.

As expected, Steelers fans were not particularly pleased, some labeling the move as just plain ignorant.

Some Steelers fans even went as far to call it treason against them and their franchise and basically disowned him.

  1. You released this guy 3 times, hardly played him this year, and let him go right before Xmas. Good for him still wanting to play, if things were reversed Pitt would have done the same thing. It’s a business, and your organization showed 0 in loyalty. Pats have nothing for depth at linebacker, so why wouldn’t they???
