  • RIP Mr. Rooney...the sports world remember one of the most legendary owners, Ambassador and man in all the NFL....read the link below from across the world of sports. He opened the door for AA coaches creating the Rooney Rule in minority hiring and was an Obama appointee for the Ambassador of Ireland...the ONLY US Ambassador of Ireland to personally visit EVERY county in Ireland and shake hands with the towns folk....truly a Pittsburgh icon which will be missed.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Today is a sad day in Pittsburgh as the city mourns the loss of Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney.

    The Steelers announced Mr. Rooney’s passing Thursday afternoon. He was 84 years old.

    Steelers President Art Rooney II released a statement, acknowledging that it was a “sad day” for the Rooney family.

    My father meant so much to all of us, and so much to so many past and present members of the Steelers organization. He gave his heart and soul to the Steelers, the National Football League and the City of Pittsburgh. We will celebrate his life and the many ways he left us in a better place.

    all the comments from owners and players around the league...this guy was a truly generous human being.
