    ...I hope you're right... But I don't think this is anywhere near settled yet.

    do you actually believe this?

    dan is 76.

    why do you people have so much faith in art2 to make the sound financial decisions to keep this team competetive in a small market? careful what you wish for.

    SD alleviates that concern.

    Why do you think an unknown commodity would keep the best interests and values of this team going as they have? What experience does he have with the other current owners, or even the NFL for that matter? How is your concern alleviated with SD?..... SD doesn't "alleviate" anything, in fact, just the opposite. He has no history so it's an unknown and a concern. Hell, he could end up as another Snyder or Bidwell.... From your 18 comments on this board I can only assume you are from the younger generation and have no clue as to what Dan and the Rooneys have done within the NFL and this team as far as history goes. If I am wrong I apologize completely, maybe you simply want a change within this organization for whatever reason, if so then so be it.... But you are not presenting a valid argument... Give me some reasons to think your way....

    you're wrong.

    what makes you think art2 is hall of fame material?

    if dan has to mortgage the interest and future of the franchise just so he can give it to his son, I am not in favor of that. i am a fan of the pittsburgh steelers. not the pittsburgh rooneys.

    dan cannot run the team forever.

    Yes, I may be wrong...

    ... But Dan Rooney has continued what Art Sr. started. And there has been no indication that things will go downhill.... Your assumptions are just that.... Assumptions.

    ... Give me definitive facts to support your claims if you want me to take it seriously....

    you're wrong about how old i am brah. you are certainly entitled to your own opinions and assumptions.

    SD has a bigger checkbook. that is a fact.

    teams are always looking for new revenue streams. that is a fact.

    the steelers are limited as a small market club. that is a fact.

    a cash strapped steelers team will struggle in todays NFL. that is a fact.

    ... With the exception of the checkbook of SD, I disagree.... But that's what a message board is all about.... The other items do not mean that the Rooneys would be an inferior owner..... They have prospered in the same "small market" for how many years?

    art2 has no track record.

    SD has conquered wall st. he must be able to tie his shoes, right?

    i see the cap going up. a cash strapped owner is in big trouble.

    the times they are a changing.
