In retrospect, the decision by Rooney was surprising, the breach of Steelers protocol was shocking. The Steelers usually have their ducks in a row. On this matter they did not. Unbelievable poor communications between Rooney and Tomlin. So poor, in fact, I wonder if there's not something deliberate about the way it was handled. ...

Is Art mildly upset with the head coach over something?
Bob Smizik: You would think there is something wrong in the relationship between the two men. Rooney certainly hung Tomlin out to dry with the way he handed the Arians firing.

This is how I viewed the whole deal.No problem with the Boss doing what he felt he had to do, its just after Tomlin said All Coaches were coming back he stepped in . Either Tomlin overstepped his authority or Rooney led him to believe it was his call. Once again either way not enough communication between the two.

I'm afraid you're going to be in the minority on this one, seeing as a wide majority of fans didn't mind seeing him go. Certain things about someone stick in your memory, and Arians had the unfortunate knack of calling some really holy abortions of a play on numerous occasions. Once mistakes of that magnitude become fused into your brain you really can't wait for a replacement.

I mean come on, it's not like he fired Jamie Harrison or anything.........it was just Bruce Arians.

Default Re: Rooney needs to own and stop meddling

wouldn't be the first time an owner and a head coach weren't getting along, won't be the last

Throw in one drama-inducing, inept OC in Arians and Tomlin's father dying and its just not a good time right now

Cowher was supposedly run right out of Pittsburgh on multiple occasions - 1 issue was personal, 1 was Kordell Stewart, and the other was about not securing the big game Ws time after time after time

Default Re: Rooney needs to own and stop meddling

Rooney simply said what most of our fans wanted to say. Hop many of us are frustrated during the season. We watched Ben holding balls a little too long and taking unnecessary sacks, saw those unreasonable long passes, and of course the stats that Ben is consistently among the most sacked QBs. Rooney made a suggestion at the end of 2009 season that he would prefer more running, but that has not happened this season.
The play callings were mostly dictated by Ben and Arains, Tomlin has not been stood on his own. I can't blame Rooney for standing up to Ben and Bruce and demanding some changes. Someone suggested on this on the board: Owners Own; Coaches Coach; Players Play. I agree but, part of owning a team is to make sure your team is on the right track. If, for some reasons, coaches are not capable of making certains calls, owners step in. what is wrong with that?

him doing it is one thing
him saying it Publicly is another

I know stuff like this goes down all the time but usually it's kept in house.
Why Rooney have to speak publicly?

Owners who want it to be about them means a team that wont win Super Bowls

Default Too Many Rooney Fans on here - You guys are brainwashed

Just because he "owns" the Steelers doesnt make him right.
Like the King of England he lucked into it because of his birthright

Now others are saying what I have already said

Rooney needs to stop talking in public.
I dont care if he is calling the shots.
He doesnt need to brag about it. (i.e talk about it publicly)

Go by a Ferrarri and Drive around a college campus or something if you need to fill up your ego!

Art (RIP!) and elder Dan -- Steeler Nation needs you.

Not a fan of owners who like to be in the spotlight and have a camera in their face.

You want to be famous?
GO to Hollywood.

But please don't be the owner of the Steelers.
