Simple, I don't trust them.

I also don't like, or agree with Danny Rooney (Art II's son) wearing a headset as an "offensive assistant" during games when he's supposed to be next in line to be in charge after Art II steps away.

Too much nepotism running wild with this team again. That's why they didn't win anything for 40 years until Noll showed up.

Would these be the same Rooney's who cut Johnny Unitas and who's football team won NOTHING for 40 years until their first HOF QB showed up?

Didn't they also cut Len Dawson?

You're going all the way back to Johnny Unitas and Lenny Dawson to find something to hang the Rooneys with? Why not go further back and blame the Chief for hiring Johnny Blood McNally, who didn't even show up for one game? Or for not selling the original Steelers franchise to Philadelphia in 1940? Or for wasting his money on a football team at all?

You don't like Danny Rooney on the sidelines, Crash? Where else is he supposed to learn the game of football? Not that there's a whole lot to learn; he was quite a high school and small college quarterback, if what I hear is right.

In all seriousness, many of you don't like the Rooney family. Some of you hate Tomlin and/or Colbert. Some can't stand Ben or AB or Conner or any number of other players. A few of you have even said that you don't watch the games Tim uploads. My question is, why waste your time on a site that's dedicated to a team you don't like, in whole or in part?

So if Jerry Jones bought the Steelers, put a headset on, and went to the sidelines during games you'd be OK with that?

I'll also mention the fact that Art Rooney II told a HOF QB how to play his position after said HOF QB took this team to three Super Bowls in his first 8 seasons.  

Art II needs to do what Bob Kraft does: Be content with getting smashed in the owners box and let his hired football people do their jobs.

Win:  The fans love them, Ben's an instant HOF'er, Tomlin's a genius

Lose:  The fans hate them, Ben's 'lost it', Tomlin's an idiot

It's not hard, guys.

Fans, some local media, and National media wanted Ben benched after a half in Jacksonville 9 days after another 5 TD pass performance against Carolina.

Ben is the most scrutanized quarterback in NFL history, bar none.
