Rooney Not Interested in Pittsburgh Franchise

Wednesday October 31, 2001

Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney recently told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that he isn`t interested in aquiring an Arena Football team, "I have a problem with it because I don`t think it`s really football," he said.

Meanwhile, Rooney`s sons, Dan Jr. and John, are much more interested. "Anytime I get literature, I give it to them. The only thing is they don`t have the money."

Rooney II admitted to the Tribune-Review that there has been some discussion about Arena Football within the organization, "but there`s a big difference between talking and doing something about it."
