Default Re: Steelers: surviving labor trouble?

I can see the writing on the wall. I already have Direct TV on speed dial, the minute the Patsies become "the greatest team of all time" I'm going to cancel NFL ticket for next year (not to mention downgrade to the cheapest pkg they have)

Its bad enough the NFL has about the same credibility as the WWF right now. The NFL with no salary cap is something I will have no interest in at all.

The Rooneys simply aren't wealthy enough and Pittsburgh simply isn't a large enough market to stay competitive in that kind of environment.
I don't understand the "Pittsburgh isn't a large enough market" part. Isn't there a 20 year waiting list for season and Heinz field is full. Everyone from Harrisburg and west are Steeler fans and there's a good many even out here in Filthadelphia.

We know from his own words that Mr. Jones hates sharing revenue with his fellow owners. The end of revenue sharing would be the end of the league.
Mr. Jones can get bent. He knew the rules when he bought into the league. If he doesn't like it, he can go start his own league.

No, I don't think the Rooneys are as stupid as the Nutcases or Dave Glass. But regardless, yeah, it will still be tough for the Steelers to compete. Pre-70's all over again.
