The Steelers unveiled their throwback uniforms recently. The uni's are black and yellow striped. ProFootballTalk.com wonders if Seahawk fans would take offense to them.  They joke that the 12th Man might think that's what Super Bowl XL referees looked like.  I'd like to say it's a homage to the refs. After all, the black stripes are horizontal for Pittsburgh.  The refs stripes are vertical.  They don't want to come right out and copying them. That might be a worse slap in the face than referee Bill Leavy admitting he screwed up some calls against the Hawks in Super Bowl XL.
