Pay all starters $1,000,000 each every year across the board, 2nd stringers $500,000, 3td stringers $200,000, etc... problem solved.

Let's stop restructuring Troy's deal and fucking up our cap in the future.

What someone wants and what they can afford are not the same - Troy will need to agree to a major pay cut if what AJRII wants is going to happen
I agree (except I want a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano).


I guess it was nice to have Noll retire as a Steeler too, except that he hung around about ten years longer than he should have.
It's a nice idea to have everyone retire as a Steeler, but does that apply even if their performance falls through the basement?

Yeah, athletes keeping away from carbs....should have been a blue light. But, likely smoking a Cuban cigar.

Quite frankly I am stoked by the stance that Art II is taking with Troy considering what the organization did to Hines Ward (my own personal bias). I believe there has to be some loyalty from the organization which there truly appears to be and I fully believe that Troy has the utmost loyalty to the Steelers. The sad part of football is that it is now referred to as a "business" versus as a game. I really like the step that Art II has taken and here's to hoping that Troy's loyalty meets him halfway, Troy has at least another good two years left in those wheels, I can't yet bring myself to cheer for someone named Ha-Ha!!!

sounds crazy but I wouldn't be surprised if he fell to the 2nd round....Calvin Pryor & Deone Bucannon are getting a lot of love on mocks, right now mostly Pryor is but Bucannon will rise after the combine Imo making Ha-Ha possibly fall to the 2nd rd.

If the Steelers go with a DB in the 1st round I truly hope it will be Dennard, that is just my opinion though!!!!

Default Re: Art Rooney II wants Troy Polamalu to retire a Steeler

I would be happy with a top level CB in the first, and the sooner they can take the field on a regular basis the better. I think C Allen and a great CB will fix our DB's for years, add a solid S and we just won't have to worry about them for years. To not have to worry about a 1/3 of the def for the next 5-8 years will allow us to contend until Ben retires.
