Dan Rooney and Son Getting Closer to Owning Team

Good news on the South Side today, as it looks as if the question of who is going to own the Steelers long-term is almost done, as Dan Rooney and his son appear ready to come to terms to take over the club – for good.

“Our thoughts now are to move everything forward and try to get this agreement worked out,” Rooney said this afternoon. “I think this was a step in the right direction. By no means is this finished, and we’re still doing that. So there’s still not a whole lot to say.”

The Post-Gazette is reporting that four of the five brothers met at Heinz Field today at their annual year-end board meeting of stockholders, and went over details of the restructuring plan. Nothing was decided at the meeting.

Dan Rooney did tell the paper that he thinks the deal still might be presented for a vote at the NFL owners meeting on December 17th in Dallas. First, the league finance committee must recommend the ownership restructuring at its meeting, which was moved from Wednesday to next Monday.
