The Steelers, fans and the City of Pittsburgh have lost an icon.
RIP Mr. Rooney
Rest in peace Mr rooney. Thank you for giving me such a great franchise to pull for
I don`t have words to express what I am feeling.
This hit me like a ton of bricks, out of the blue...
My condolences to his family, and the rest of Steeler Nation...
We just lost one of the great people to walk the face of this earth, from a generation of people
that knew how to raise their kids right, with a sense of family, and dignity, respect, class, and all of the things that are fading
YOU WILL BE MISSED, BUT REMEMBERED!!!!
This is a sad day indeed, Dan was a great and very humble man. What a legacy he leaves behind. A man who others should aspire to. He is Pittsburgh through and through. Condolences to his family may he rest in peace.
Well respected owner in the league....
RIP Mr. Rooney, Thank you for all you did for the NFL and the Steelers. You will never be forgotten.
Steelers gotta win #7 this year for Dan

Wow this is a sad day, R.I.P. Mr. Rooney. We are better fans because of the Rooney family, thank you for that. God bless................
Sad news indeed. Would love to see an NFL Films done on him, he led quite a life.
RIP Mr Dan Rooney. Condolences to his family.
RIP Mr. Rooney.
Rest in peace, Mr. Rooney.
To bad... Had one heckuva run! Thanks for the top notch organization Mr. Rooney. R.I.P.
God's speed Dan!
R.I.P. Mr. Rooney. He was a class act.
Man this one hurts like crazy. What a great man. I remember the last time I saw him I felt really sorry for him because he just looked so feeble but was still down on the sidelines chatting with people and players and when he walked out of the tunnel we all started cheering for him and he just smiled and waved at us. Definitely a revered figure in our storied history and in the history of the league really. Thanks for everything, Mr. Rooney. Steeler Nation will never forget you.
Dude I'm telling you man there's just "something" about this one that's like "dang". I mean it's almost like The STEELERS died today. That's almost how it feels in my heart to learn of this. Most of the time when you hear of a celebrity dying you're sort of just like "ah I hate to hear that" but with this one it just feels so much closer to home or something. Terrible news. This man has enriched all of our lives beyond anything we could ever truly express. I mean really when you get down to it he's one of the primary reasons behind our little tight knit community and friendships that have sprung up on this very site. I can't even begin to imagine how his immediate family must feel right now.
RIP Mr. Rooney
Kinda speechless. Just shocked and sad.
RIP Mr Rooney, just like your teams, you played the game of life well. We will never forget you, and you will always be remembered.
we just lost a lot of the class of this organization. RIP dan rooney. what a class act.
What a classy guy he was. Every year at Training Camp he would walk over and talk to me and my family! Rest in Peace Good Man!
