View Full Version : Myron Cope To Lemieux: Keep Pens In Pittsburgh

Myron Cope, the legendary former Pittsburgh Steelers broadcaster, challenged part-owner Mario Lemieux to keep the Pens in town by writing an editorial in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Wednesday

In the article, Cope told Lemieux to "consider emulating the chief -- the late Art Rooney Sr."

Rooney is known for publicly rejecting offers to move the Steelers out of Pittsburgh. The Penguins are considering such an offer from Kansas City, where a new arena will be ready for them to play in next season.

"Perhaps unfairly, I'm asking that you disregard bottom-line offers and keep the Pens here, simply because it's the right thing to do," Cope wrote in his editorial.

So far, Lemieux has not responded.

Later Wednesday, Cope told WTAE Channel 4's Sally Wiggin why he penned the newspaper piece.

"I couldn't resist the urge to put something in writing," Cope said. "Although I'm said to be retired, it takes me three times as long to accomplish something in my old age, so I'm busy all the time. I'm like a full-time worker. Am I going to sit there and try to run down Mario? Who knows where Mario is? I don't know if he's around the corner or in Alaska, so I wrote a letter and they decided to use it as a column."

Gov. Ed Rendell, Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and the Penguins' owners all say they're continuing to negotiate on a so-called "Plan B" for a new arena in the city.

But Cope told Wiggin that the politicians are just trying to play catch-up with Kansas City.

"I don't think there ever was a Plan B," Cope said. "It was a case of, well, if we get to that point, we'll make one up. Mario now has... a chance at getting a much better offer than he would have, had the politicans, the political leaders, Rendell, Onorato and then-Mayor (Bob) O'Connor not remained silent for all this time."

Plan B includes the use of public money -- along with contributions from the Penguins and casino owner Don Barden -- to build the arena.

"I can see where taxpayers could be angered, certainly, and people who don't care about hockey," Cope said. "But in my opinion, the benefits of a major league team are tremendous."

Though California billionaire Ron Burkle owns the biggest piece of the Pens, Cope said he thinks Lemieux's name carries enough weight and respect that he could convince Burkle and the other partners to swing the deal in Pittsburgh's favor.

"I'm pretty good at spending other people's money, and in Mario's case, asking him to take possibly the lesser of two offers," Cope said. "But he's a good guy, and I'll continue to think of him as a good guy regardless of what he does."

all i know is cope had an annoying as hell voice...... and yes it is obvious because the only thing i care about in pittsburgh is the steelers. and the broadcasting team doesn't mean a damn thing to me because i never hear them. maybe if i actually grew up there and listened to him i would care about him like i do sean elliot (san antonio spurs broadcaster) but since i wasn't i can only base my opinion on how annoying his voice is when i hear it

and i don't care about the pens, they ain't gonna win anything lol..... hockey needs to go back on strike

I agree Myron Cope is so much better then anybody on freaking tv. Plus the man loves his Stillers. We all wouldn't be waving our :tt02: if it wasn't for Cope who invented the Terrible Towel. I lived in Pittsburgh for a year in 1997. I would turn the sound on the tv off and listen to Cope. Mr. Cope is a Pittsburgh legend so Koop, I know you're from Texas so you really don't understand what Myron Cope means to the city of Pittsburgh.

I'm not a big hockey guy myself but I hope they stay in Pittsburgh. I usually just watch the Stanley Cup play-offs so the Pens back in play-off contention has me excited about the future of the Pens. So for the city of Pittsburgh, I hope they stay.

and again, i'm from TEXAS i never heard the steelers broadcasting team because the only time i get to watch steeler games is on national tv........... i've only heard cope scream on a few plays and his voice was annoying, i never said he was bad at his job, i said from the little i heard it was annoying

People that have never heard him broadcast a game or listen to him after the game...would not be able to fully appreciate him. I know many people that thought his voice was annoying, but he is a major part of our history and I for one loved him and his voice.

Well seeing as a BROADCASTER'S VOICE is about 50% of his job, I would say you are saying he is bad at his job.

Don't be an ******* just to be an *******, it's played out and you aren't in high school anymore. You want to have a difference in opinion fine, but saying "F*CK COPE" isn't going to fly on ANY Steelers board.

Oh and F*CK Sean Elliot and his missing kidney.

Typically I ain't an ******* just to be one, only when someone gets me spun up. It sucks when someone talks **** on somebody that means something to you for no reason whatsoever, don't you think?

The whole F*ck Cope was completely uncalled for, and you know it. It's not like anyone here would ever say F*ck Sean elliot, unprovoked.

And just b/c people didn't join message boards until after the SB win, does not make them bandwagon fans. You have liked the Stillers for how long? I don't think you are even qualified to call out bandwagon fans yet.

Im not from the 'burgh, but I know of the Cope history and what he did for the Stillers. His voice reminds me of that Gilbert Godfreed (sp?). I've viewed many of Stillers games with him broadcasting. I don't mind it.

f*ck cope was a bit tasteless IMO, regardless where you live or what little you've heard of him.

and i said in the first page of this thread, i'm sure if i grew up there or around there and got to listen to him call games i'm sure i wouldn't think it was annoying.........but based on the fact that i only heard a few seconds of his voice it sounded annoying, but that by no means, means i think he was bad at his job

Whew, I just read this entire thread and I have to agree to a certain point with Koop, Cope's voice is very annoying to me. I have listened to him at the shows he used to have after the game, they were awesome, but that voice (horrible)! I live in Michigan, so I am another out of stater who has heard him over the internet and in person. What he has done to promote the Steelers, and the entire organization is without a doubt awesome, Cope never does anything without saying something good about the Steelers, he loved them like you and I love our kids.

Every Steelers fan knows that there is nothing like watching a game called by Myron Cope, Bill Hillgrove and Tunch Ilkin. Myron made the bad games bearable and made the great games even better. Myron has also been given credit by Jack Ham with coining the "Steel Curtain" nickname for the Hall of Fame defense of the 70's. He also was the first broadcaster to use Michael Ord's Immaculate Reception description of Franco's miraculous catch. Before the 2004 season, Myron had missed only five quarters of Steelers football in his 34 years on the job. (how many of us can say that about our jobs)? I know I can't.

As far as Myron Cope, the man, he was an excellent writer, received many awards. As a writer, Cope's talent put him in the company of the best people Sports Illustrated ever had under contract, and in Cope's heyday one of those people was George Plimpton. As evidence, Cope's profile of Howard Cosell was selected by Sports Illustrated during its 50th Anniversary as one of the 50 best pieces ever published in the magazine.

But the thing I think I will always think of when I think of him and help me out here because I am not positive of all the facts but Cope had a child who was mentally or physically disabled (or both) and this child went to a school for disabled people, eventually his child died. (I think). Myron Cope never forgot that school and all the good they did for his child so he gave them all the rights to the Terrible Towel and so now if you purchase a towel, the school gets a portion of the money. Only, a very caring compassionate and loving person would do something like this. So yeah I love Myron Cope but as Koop says his voice is annoying. As far as the Pens are concerned, Myron cares for them a great deal but I don't, because he was the voice of the Steelers for many, many years does not mean that because he likes the Pens, I, as a Steeler fan, shaould also like them. I am a redwings fan just like you from da burgh are Pens fan, are you gonna shoot me?

I don't think anyone cares who else you or Koop root for, but to come on to a board and say F*ck Myron cope, would be like me saying f*ck Magic Johnson.

I don't care about who else people root for, you aren't expected to be a fan of every Pittsburgh team, but come on.

Cope is a PITTSBURGH LEGEND, not just a Steelers legend. If you ain't from the Burgh we really don't expect you to understand. It wasn't so much Koop's opinion that stunk, it was the way he expressed it.

I hope you have it straight who said what. I know all about Myron Cope and I was a steeler fan before he was the voice of the Steelers, so I do not feel I am not "aware" just because I do not live in da burgh. You do not have to live in da burgh to be knowlegable about Steeler football and Steeler football history.:lol:

Cope was awesome, at least untill the last couple years before he retired, when his voice got worse and his mind wasn't quite as sharp as in his prime.

IMO, I'd take the Pens over the Stars any day (except Zubov. He's the man)

So koopa, **** the Stars. And the NBA :lol:

Myron Cope is/was one heck of a talented human being, we all think of him as a commentator but he was one darn good writer, also!
