With Harrison clearly being targeted by the league and likely will be made a scapegoat before the season is up I, as a fan, want to hear Art II take a stand for his players.

He let Goodell screw Ben to pacify the court of public opinion. Is he going to sacrifice Harrison too playing nice with Goodell?

"The Chief" would not let the commish do this to his boys. he be on the phone setting Rozelle straight!!!!

The way that Art played get-along with the commish on Ben's suspension (some even suggest that they were in cahoots) I wouldn't hold my breath on that. That said, Art would gain more loyalty from the players with a simple statement like that than about anything else he could do as an owner.

He was a driving force behind NoGoodell getting the job in the first place.

I'd love to see Art say something in support of Harrison. I doubt it will happen.

Art2 is on the commish's side, not the players.

Duece should be renamed Douche.

He hung Ben out to dry.

Now he's hanging out Harrison.

He tries to stay popular by having the commish do his dirty work.

Art's job is politics. Tomlin's job besides coaching is going to bat for players. It's a nice mix of good cop and bad cop that works. Irritating Goodell will get the Steelers nothing at this point. That doesn't mean being Goodell's yes man but it does mean not fighting battles you can't win. Public lashing out at Goodell would just bring problems. With that said, I hope that Art does discuss some of his concerns with Goodell behind closed doors.

Art II has been President of the Steelers since 2003. In all of this time, how many times have you heard him spout off to the media about anything? I can recall one and only one time...saying in an interview that we need to run the ball more effectively after last season. Of course, after this, everyone and their mother overreacted to this proclamation, saying that the ownership is forcing the coaches to run more often (which is not what he said at all). I haven't heard a peep out of him since that nonsense, and I don't expect to. He is not a Jones-Snyder-Kraft type of in-the-spotlight owner.

Many times saying less is saying more. Only say what you need to say. Everything else will be used as ammunition. Why load someone elses gun?
