    Default Dan Rooney needs to resign from....

    His Ambassador gig and come back to Pittsburgh and get the house in order. The old man leaves the country and **** falls apart under his son. This kind of player misbehavior needs to be nipped in the bud now. Maybe some of these vets need to revisit the rookie symposium or something, I don't know. I would be willing to bet however, that if Dan were here, things would be different.

    Can't say this thought hasn't ran through my head at least a thousand times since the Ben assault allegations surfaced.

    This stuff would be bad enough coming from two "regular" players, but these are two high profile team "leaders" putting themselves in these situations. They truly need to be humbled, and Dan, like the Chief, has that gift. The gift to humble and put the fear of god into you at the same time, in a grandfatherly sort of way. They both command respect.

    Wonder if this would have happened under Cowher? Some guys just earn respect others not so much.

    Yeah. That's right. Ben was celibate and never partied when Cowher was coach.

    I'm Irish and I agree. I'd put the Steelers before diplomatic relations any day.

    Yeah I don't know. Dan Rooney's defense of James Harrison after the domestic abuse thing is probably one of the 10 most ridiculous pro sports quotes of all time.

    Party, yes. Accused of sexual assault twice in 9 months, no.

    Dan was around the locker room and the players daily (like the Chief) talking to them and asking about their lives and giving advice and what not. He genuinely cares about his players.
    Sure there could be sporadic instances where a player gets in trouble, but the same player twice for the same **** in 8 months and a second player in the same offseason for assaulting a woman.
    I equate it to when I was growing up and would walk the line or get my *** whooped by my dad. When my dad would have go out of town for two weeks for work, I would act up thinking "well he ain't around".
    Yes, if he was around, I believe things would be different.

    "What Jimmy Harrison was doing and how the incident occurred, what he was trying to do was really well worth it. He was doing something that was good, wanted to take his son to get baptized where he lived and things like that. She said she didn't want to do it."
