Wow!

Have you guys seen the full page they bought in the Sports section of the Post-Gazette today, "Thank you Pittsburgh!" with pictures of their family and reference to the Local Foundations they've been involved with"

You guys are class acts!

Props to Faneca for leaving on a good note, as contrasted with such stormy departures as Plax

Kudos to Alan and his wife for showing such class. :cheers: Though his little outbursts kind of left a salty taste in my mouth last season, I appreciate Alan's contributions to the Steelers in his 10 seasons here and wish him well in New York. (Good luck dealing with their fans - LOL!)

Is there any type of on-line link that anyone knows of? We folks in NW Ohio don't get no newspapers. :smile:

I checked Post-Gazette online, both the sports page and through the ads section - no dice in either case.

Faneca was an integral part of the success our ground had for years. The man was a warrior and I never suspected him of giving less than 100 percent. And given the fact that he left Pittsburgh for more money doesn't change the fact that I respect the hell out of him. It's a business and he needs to keep his own best interests upfront b/c when his time in the game is over, no one is gonna be doing that for him.

grr... i would've really liked to view the page...

it was a nice gesture from Alan and his family... this definitely makes me feel a bit better about Alan's stance this time last year..

a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do...

I would have to say he had a little better departure then plax.

Personally the only departure I had any trouble with was Cowher. The way he moved his family to NC the year before and the ensuing drama was something the Steelers could have done without.

Alan has pretty must shown the world what Jersey he'll be wearing when he enters the Hall of Fame.

Agreed, HTG! I was more than a little ticked at Alan for a minute, but that was a nice gesture.

Although I was peeved at Alan for his outburst last year (again something he should have kept in house), I believe in my heart that he will always be a Steeler regardless of who he plays for on Sunday and when it's all said and done - he'll ink the one day deal that makes him a Steeler for life!!!!

Highest paid offensive lineman in history, now. He was right, stuck to his guns, and he did his job right up until his last day. I miss his run blocking already, and will always remember the block he made to spring Willy for his TD in Superbowl XL.

Alan is a class act and, he will be missed on and off the field. Good luck Alan. Now time to move on for us and, I hope we make a good draft choice to fill his position.

I can't fault a guy in a violent game for wanting one more big paycheck. He gave us 10 great years. I can live with that. Whether or not he plays here any longer, he is still one of us.
