We should all send letters to the Commish to fix this problem. He's not only destroying the Steelers, he's beginning to destroy the NFL.

This seems to be a direct retaliation for Arlen Specter pushing Roger on the "cover up" of spygate!

This whole thing with the Rooneys was a NON issue for years!

Roger dug into the Steelers org. looking for a way to stick it to them!

Call me a conspiracy nut if you want, but it all seems to be a steaming pile of shit! Roger takes the whole "we misunderstood the rules on videotaping" statement to heart, slaps them on the wrist and BURNS THE EVIDENCE!

On the other hand he is content on letting one of the most influential families the NFL has to just be pushed out based on a rule that has been in place for a long time but has NEVER even been even close to being a problem.

Goodell is a F@*#!G RAT!

The future of the NFL is in trouble!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To think Dan Rooney once said those words.

What an S.O.B. Goodell turned out to be. Jesus, Harry and Joseph.

The NFL had no issues with the Rooneys owning Yonkers when it was just a race track and no problem with the 30% rule previously. Non-football Rooneys made the business decision to move ito video gambling and to sell their shares in the Steelers.

AJR, Jr. talking about taking AJR IV to camp for "the last time" was touching - what's Druckenmiller going to do, ban the Rooneys from access to the camp if he buys the team?

I suppose he will bar then from the owners box - wait, Dan and AJR II apparently have already done that.

From what was said in the interview... the gaming issue has ALREADY been put to rest. The ONLY issue left is the 30 percent rule.

I'm as big a conspiracy theory guy as anyone but I don't see it here. This story went public recently but it's been an issue for a couple years now. I read somewhere that Drunkenmiller had been talking with the Rooneys as far back as 06 about purchasing the franchise.

I can't even give Spector credit for screwing things up let alone anything constructive....lol

And might this be the NFL willing to take the 'bad guy' status to help someone save face? Like one of the brothers in a disasterous financial situation. Allow me to climb onto the grassy knoll to point out the absolute carnage that has yet to come off life support.

Let me re-test the theories.

Either the NFL is STICKING IT to one of the most important franchises in the company over a rule change OR...

Someone needs to CAAAASH OOOUUUUTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Call me Oliver Stone but in the face of the worst bear market in American history that began in November 2007 I'd tend to believe the latter even if it is a myth.

Buckle up.
