Re: Arians says he was forced to retire
not renewed, fired, let go . . .what does it matter - the guy is no longer the Steeler OC and however you say it - they did not want him back for another season. In the nicest way possible - they fired him.
Rooney: Bruce - we're not renewing your contract.
Bruce: So what if I say I don't want to retire.
Rooney: Well I'm trying to give you an out here so I don't actually have to say it.
Bruce: Oh yea - ok - I'm "retired" then
Rooney: Yes - we don't want you back - exactly.
Look into my eyes
