Cool. Good to see the tie with a former Pittsburgh great. Stallworth must be pretty smart with his money 'cause you have to figure he made comparative peanuts as a player in the '70's & '80's.

JOHN STALLWORTH JOINS STEELERS OWNERSHIP GROUP
Posted by Mike Florio on March 23, 2009, 6:55 p.m.
The “very recognizable name” to which Steelers president Art Rooney II referred last week has been revealed.

Hall of Fame receiver John Stallworth is joining the franchise’s ownership group.

Stallworth was approved at Monday’s league meetings, along with two other investors — Bruce V. Rauner, Chairman of GTCR Golder Rauner, and the Varischetti family of Brockway, Pennsylvania.

James Haslam III, the Paul family, and Thomas Tull previously have been approved by the league.

The Steelers also announced that the closing date for the restructuring of the ownership of the team has been moved from March 31, 2009 until May 2009, and the release implies that additional investors could be added.

Under the new ownership structure, Dan Rooney and Art Rooney II will own 30 percent of the franchise, the McGinley family will continue to own 20 percent, and the new investors will own a total of 50 percent.

The specific shares of the new investors have not yet been disclosed.

Previously, five Rooney brothers shared 80 percent of the team, and the McGinley family held its 20-percent stake. Under the transaction, Dan Rooney and Art Rooney II increase their joint position from 16 percent to 30 percent, giving them the controlling interest in the franchise.

I thought you had to have big money? I mean really big money to be in this group?

OK.. well I read the whole article and apparently Stallworth made dough starting up a company and selling it in Huntsville, AL

My wife is from there and I remember her saying she grew up with Stallworth's daughter and I thought it was weird she was in Alabama...

what's really funny is my wife AND her mom (2 southern girls) married men from Pittsburgh...

please no jokes. :nono

I think it's more of a cultural thing with the Polish and Italians in the area...

It's funny cause when I first got on here(P.Live/here) and saw all the yinz and Stiller jokes I didn't get it until I went back home and went to the N. Side...

After college, my job moved me to Texas for a few years and I once tried to order chipped ham from a local deli. They had no clue what I was talking about......it's definitely a Burgh thing!

This is announcement could be worrisome or welcome. Worrisome because now there will be multiple owners that may or may not agree on direction for the team. Welcome because no one owner has sufficient shares to cause problems.
