A Change at the Top Coming for the Steelers


The Steelers, one of the most stable organizations in the NFL, will be shaking up some things at the top.  The team announced that chairman Dan Rooney and his son, team President Art Rooney II, want to purchase Dan Rooney’s brothers shares in the team.  The reason behind the move is that some of Rooney’s four brothers want to put some of their business efforts elsewhere.

What will this do to the Steelers players or fans for that matter?  Not a heck of a lot.  Dan Rooney says that he’ll do whatever he has to do to keep the Rooney family as the teams owners, and keep the team in the Steel city, which seems like it won’t really be an issue.  Art Rooney II has already said that the shift within the Rooney family should not affect the team or fans.

The Rooney family owns racetracks in both New York and Florida, and one big no-no that the NFL wants to make sure is not involved in their sport are people involved with gambling, and the Rooney’s have added forms of gaming that are inconsistent with NFL gambling policy.
