    Obviously they can't stand him. They went down to Florida to kick his ass but instead a workout broke out...:shrug:

    I think some of you have Art Rooney II mixed up with Bob Nutting. LOL.

    We don't need new ownership. Art has been running this franchise for a while now long before Dan passed. The family will never sell the franchise anyway.

    I do think Art has to be more flexible and let Tomlin go if 2019 is a disaster.

    It would be a lot easier to stomach if it didn't count against the cap. Franchises p!ss away 20 mil cash all the time.

    That’s false.
    Let’s say we sign player X tomorrow for 3 years 30 million included is a 5 million signing bonus.
    Things don’t work out in camp and we cut him. We could be on the hook cap wise for upwards of 10 million even thoug we only actually paid him 5 million in actual money.
    I may be a bit off on the actual numbers, but that’s the just of it.
    Now AB had the restructuring and yeas some of that 21 mil is money he actually got, but not all of it.
    I believe @Blast Furnace broke it down in a reply to you in another thread.
    Look I’m not trying to be condescending to you about this, I just don’t think you’re understanding how the cap hit works.
    Now if I have it all wrong my apologies to you.

    Not sure what the issue is.
    I said AB’s antics on social media has caused the team problems and I believe it has. I don’t recall saying anything specifically about players coming out and criticizing him for his antics.

    Wow nice post I am pretty impressed. I may be wrong on some of the numbers as well I am not a capoligest lol. I do know that 19 mil got turned into signing bonus which gets spread out over the length of the contract. He also turned 6 mil into signing bonus last year. This is most of that 21 mil. I missed blast’s breakdown so I will have to go back and look at it. And like you I may be wrong and if I am I apologize. However I do not think I am far off on saying most of what we are being charged with is from signing bonuses.

    Lol yeah by no means is he Nutting level. But you need to know when changes need to be made and lately he's been abysmal.

    I've been meaning to ask from your original post. Do you believe anyting could be a wake-up call at this point? This klusterfuk has been boiling, often boiling over, for the last 4 years and there is absolutely no sign that Rooney is going to change anything.

    True, and AB's spot was yielded from the S. Holmes trade (I think), maybe lightning will strike twice.

    Just curious for all those complaining about Art II and saying with the passing of Dan being the downfall of the Steelers, who ran the the team in the 80’s and early 90’s?? In no way am I trying to besmirch Mr. Dan Rooney, but be real with yourselves. The Rooney’s allow the Front Office and Coach run the team only interjecting if they absolutely need to. Things haven’t turned out for us the way we would have liked the past 4 or 5 years, but don’t talk this nonsense about the Rooney’s. Would you prefer The Jones, Bidwells or Browns???

    Always remember, Steelers won nothing with the killer B's. The Steelers won superbowl rings before $$$Bell$$$ & $$$Brown$$$ and will be a better team when the offensive workload is shared...
