I dislike the Steelers and their fans but have a tremendous amount of respect for Mr. Rooney. The absolute model for what an owner should be. Respect due to him and his family.

My heart goes out today to the Steelers nation. Mr. Rooney was arguably the greatest owner in the history of the game. An absolute legend. Irreplaceable. Brilliant. His impact on the league is unquantifiable. My condolences, Pittsburgh fans. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. May he Rest In Peace.

Respectfully, a Ravens fan.

I appreciate the condolences, but please keep the discussion about Mr. Rooney's legacy and his family. Please don't discuss the fan base. Let's not veer down that path. The replies won't be too kind; for obvious reasons.

Saw the picture before the headline. I thought "Noooo!" But every life comes to an end and Mr. Dan Rooney lived a good one. He was a great man and owner. A legend in the Steelers organization. God bless him and his family. RIP

On those thoghts - from a lifelong Browns fan - condolences to the Rooney family, the City of Pittsburgh, and the Steelers. A great man that helped shape the NFL to what it is today. As I said, condolences on your loss.
