    1) He's not going to move the team. That would be a serious financial mistake.

    2) The fact that he has money outside of football (like other owners) is a good thing.

    3) Tomlin is a fine coach and will be with the Steelers for many years.

    Our team/organization has been fortunate to experience a quality ownership by a family that has kept it true.... Any change concerns me greatly. I can only imagine that "quality" would decrease within the "mohogany offices", and compromise what we have grown to love. .... I do not like this....

    Why would quality decrease? This guy has money outside of football...that means he can spend on things that don't fall under the salary cap. Things the Rooneys may have been reluctant to spend money on!

    The deal between the Steelers and the stadium authority almost guarantees that the Steelers will be in Pittsburgh into the foreseeable future. A successful business man didn't get that way by pissing away money and that's what he'd be doing by breaking the lease with the stadium authority.

    Assuming the worst with this guy is a lot of Chicken Little thinking and the deal isn't done yet. It sounds like Dan and Art II can't afford to buy out "all of the brothers, what if they can talk 2 of them into selling for 160 million per that is being bandied around? That gives Dan 48% ownership and enough I believe to still be considered the majority owner.

    There's a lot that has to be played out in this story and it's just beginning I believe.

    SMG, you have my permission to sleep easy, the Steelers aren't going anywhere. :P

    ... Yes, the Rooneys have been reluctant to spend money at times.... Look what it has gotten them. One of the teams in the league with one of the best winning records over recent years %-wise.... Do you want a "Dan Snyder-type" owner?.... I don't... I like the quality product that the Rooneys' provide... There's a helluva lot more to it than money. And THAT'S what concerns me....

    Of course I don't want a Dan/Jerry type owner and this guy has not given any indication that he is that type of person. My point about him having money outside of football means he can spend on non-salary cap expenses.

    This guy is a smart businessman and he knows what he'd have in the Steelers. He didn't get where he is today by making serious business blunders. Messing with the organization would be a serious business blunder. Rest easy my friend...everything will be fine.

    Any money the Rooneys have been unwilling to spend seems to be wise moves. I can't think of one thing they could have spent money on and didn't...that would have made this team better.
