RIP. Great man. One of the reasons I'm proud to be Irish and Of NS Pittsburgh background. My great uncle went to Dusquene with Dan's uncle and the two were both later priests and chaplains in WWII.

RIP Mr. Rooney. I hope our Steelers are ready to fight in the name of Mr. Rooney this upcoming season. There would be nothing better than winning #7 in his name and honor.

Is it just me, or did Raiders Owner Mark Davis' comments seem like he was making a point of highlighting Al Davis in his statement on the passing of Mr. Rooney?

"...Like my father, Mr. Rooney was a champion of diversity in our sport and his legacy in this league will live on forever."

http://www.raiders.com/news/article-1/Raiders-Owner-Mark-Davis-Issues-Statement-On-Passing-Of-Dan-Rooney/ee14816a-6709-4a01-be34-73fb831255a0

Seems a bit self serving to me and I am not a Raider hater, but IMO this time is more about the contributions of Mr. Rooney and not Al Davis.

My Facebook post:

Say what you will about the Steelers, but there is no denying that the NFL is better as an organization because of Dan Rooney's contributions on and off the field. The Chief instilled everything into his son that embodied class, character, and leadership and it shines through, even today with this team. RIP Dan. You were one of the good ones, and you will be missed. #DanRooney #steelers

I'm watching the live stream this morning. Lots of people in attendance. I caught the sight of a bus with the NFL shield on top too.

In fairness to Art II, he's pretty much been doing a lot of the day to day business operations of the team for years. I think we'll be okay but it's just not going to be the same seeing Mr. Rooney in his box at the games. Mr. Rooney is going to be missed so much.
