Default Dan Rooney to buy out Steelers.

Seems the brothers are willing to cooperate. This is good.

Good.


And people thought Dan was cheap before. Now he will really have to be. Not good when the salary cap era ends. Not good at all.

I'm pissed! Not because of the family members willing to sell to their brother - but because they were in my neck of the woods and I didn't know it.

I could have approached the Rooney's, taken a picture and been all well and good. Then got to tell Goodell how much of a douche bag he is.....dang it!!!!

I'm just glad the Steelers are being bought out by an owner we can respect and trust. I'd hate to see this team go to a Mike Brown, Al Davis, or William Clay Ford.

WOOT WOOT! This is good news...hopefully the Rooney tradition can be passed down for many more generations to come.

I'd rather chance that than possibly winding up with Daniel Snyder the 2nd.

There's a difference between being cheap and being smart.

How'd the Yankees do this year, again? Oh, right -- they won the World Series in 2000. That's eight years ago. Money sure has made them unstoppable.
