I think that the most of the "cheap" comments that you are referring to are used in sarcasm to mock some posters and NFL "experts" who claim that the Rooneys are cheap.

Dan Rooney was the main man behind getting the recent collective bargaining agreement done. If that wasn't completed the NFL would have been a disaster

They also wanted Rooney to be the next commissioner, before Goodell but he declined

i think its more about the greed the stinks up professional football..The steelers make plenty of money. Their revenue is within the top fifteen teams in the league. So i guess they raised ticket prices last year for troy's contract?

holy cow, don't let fansince76 see this thread. you will be crucified.

I bet the rooneys would make a great reality show, counting their money and throwing dollar bill paper air planes at a dart board

... the dart board is more or less a collage of all the CHEAP contracts they've given out, and pictures of good players they let go that they didnt anny up for bahhaha

How can the Rooneys be called cheap, and have no cap room?

This team was succeeded over the years by have good second string players step up time and time again to fill in for some starter that has been injured or left for free agency. You can't do that if you don't have a good solid team, and you can't have that without spreading the cap money around.
