Default Re: Arians says he was forced to retire

If he was in the second year of a four year deal, and the Steelers decided to let him go, then yeah, that's being fired. He was on a one year deal, that expired. The opportunity to fire him elapsed at that exact point in time. They decided not to re-sign.

I know it's really semantics, I just don't like the fact that the word is being bandied about like the Steelers somehow wronged Arians here, and I wish people would just stop it.
