Default Terribly disappointed in Dan Rooney and the Steeler organization today.

I am sorry. But, to any intelligent Steeler fans, Dan Rooney make a clear statement today. Good players get free passes and under perfomers don't. And in doing so, he admits to condoning violence against women-- under the right circumstances.


In order to remian honest, Rooney needs to release Harrison or bring Wilson back....or just admit that Wilson was expendible.


Rooney's reasoning for keeping Harrison and letting Wilson go are pathetic. Pathetic in that they are in the same paragraph with the idea that the Steeler organization does not condone violence, especially against women.

Today, the Steelers prove that they are no better than the other NFL teams that we as fans mock for compromising their morals and ethics to keep on thugs and criminal in the name of winning.

everybody knew wilson and his $3 mil salary were expendable.

rooneys were kind enough to keep him on the roster last year. dan set an example today that the bs will not be tolerated.

you think the players union is just gonna sit by and watch a player get fired before due process?

dan knows the ins and outs of the rules better than you.

dont be disappointed. shit like this happens with unions all the time.

I fully understand the reasoning and the Godsend out that Wilson's actions provided the Steelers, but to cite some fake Steeler stance against violence and violence toward women in the media is a serious blow to Rooney's integrity.

We, as fans, pretend we have a team that is above this kind of thug coddling....and we clearly aren't.

Am I happy we still have Harrison and now have open cap and space for a better receiver? Sure.

Has Dan Rooney's reputation and the reputation of the Steeler's as an oganization taken a hit in my book? Sure has.

Like I said, I am disappointed in him as a man and the Steeelrs as an oganization....we deserve better for all we do to back these people. He should be ashamed of his words in the press. He should have just said "no comment" it would have been far better than the load of bullshit he is trying to peddle.

And, for his public condoning of Harrison's violence against a woman, the NFL should make him take some sensitivity training.


ANd no, this isn't the end of the world or something that should consume anyone, just an opinion.

I think he could've explained it better, but I agree with it. If Harrison has another issue, he may get the boot too.

So, does WIllie Reid fill the role at #4 or do we bring in a replacement. I think we bring in a WR or 2 regardless, but I wonder if Willie can beat anyone out for the job.

When do we stop making fun of Cincy for thier criminal team? I mean they are just trying to win, right?

I am guessing you either aren;t too bright of a person or you might be a dishoinest person yourself. Just a guess.

I've never put the Steelers over any other teams in terms of morals. The NFL is a business. Team owners are business men and their main goal is to have their teams win. You're fooling yourself if you think we'd cut a pro bowl player for off the field issues.

You are missing my point. I don't expect us to cut a Pro bowl player over an off feild issue.

What I do expect is honestly and an owner and a team that doesn't think the fan base are a bunch of morons when he/they lies to the public about some bullshit like the Steeler's don'tc ondone violence and violence toward women. Becasue it obvious to eveyone that they most certainly condone it and let it go unpunished depending on the circumstances.

What I expect is an organization that is smart enough to realize that a Pro bolw player had an almost identical off feild issue that I am claiming is the reason to fire another player.
