Default Is the Steelers Franchise Now a Democratic Team ??

Dan Rooney ( The Owner of the Steelers) - A life long Republican. Not only voted for, but campaigned for Barack Obama.
Mike Tomlin (Head Coach) - An Obama Supporter.
The entire Steelers 1st Team Defense - Has stated support / admiration of Obama.
Almost all of the 1st Team Offense - Has stated support / admiration of Obama ( I say "almost all" because I haven't heard of an opinion by some O players )
Almost 90% of the Entire Team.... I say that because I haven't heard "any " players talk negatively about Obama or the Dem. admin.

Myself being an Independant and a staunch supporter of the Military and Veterans programs, voted Democratic in the last election. I started out my "voting career " as a Regan supporter. I, like many others including Dan Rooney, etc...., am a citizen of this country first, before I am a Independant, Dem. or Repub. As someone who voted Dem., I have not seen anything that this current admin. has done that would cause me to think they are doing a bad job.... as the former admin. did leave a big mess. As I compare what the Dems have to offer, and what the Repubs did when they had the ball. RIGHT NOW.... I have to agree with Mr Rooney..... By a cold, hard look at the FACTS....the Dems are still WAY out in front.....

Who cares?

One is football. One is politics. I derive no pleasure or disappointment from my teams political stand... only their record at the end of the year.

if the steelers were republican it would be thrown in democratic steelerfans faces every day on this board.

dan rooney actually being a part of the obama administration is a giant white elephant in the room.

I have more difficulty in understanding Rooney's hiring of Ray Sherman as an offensive coordinator...than I have in Rooneys support of Obama.

Wow. Just a little defensive are we? Well, that seems about par for the course over the last year.

NO. It simply doesn't matter. Republican or Democrat. I don't care. They are my football team. Not my representative in govt.

Those who can't differentiate the two need perspective. Life is greater than BOTH these topics... and football much greater than politics.

BINGO. Whichever side of the fence the Steelers and their players are on doesn't affect the outcome of a game or a season, so personally, I don't give a rat's hiney.

I don't give a crap. I don't go hating on people because of their views and just their views only.
