    Who said, besides people trying to make a story out of nothing. They based the story on MT saying that he anticipated his coordinators coming back. Have you ever fired someone? You don't talk about it publicly before telling the person. There were only three coordinators that could be fired and every one knows DL is allowed back for as long as he wants, so everyone would have known it was BA and that would have been unprofessional. It was Tomlin's decision.

    "I thought it was time for a change"

    -Art Rooney II

    He also did an interview for a local TV station after the 2011 season with one stipulation: No questions about who fired BA.

    If he didn't do it, why is he ducking the question?

    I can make up quotes and put names to it to, "I think KTrain should be head scout for the Steelers." Dan Rooney

    How about some proof, like this http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2012/...ive-interview/

    Is Arians coming back? That is really up to Mike Tomlin. Read the interview and quit believing the conspiracy of Ed Bouchette who charges money to read his articles.

    I didn't make that quote up. He said it. On camera, on the teams website in a sit down with Bob Labriola.

    Dear fellow Addicts, don't assume these new experiments won't work before they are run. Jack Bicknell Jr. and Danny Smith have distinguished records of achievement, and I am sure that they will seeking to elevate their games with the Steelers. I have supreme faith in Tomlin's judgement on matters with his staff; this faith springs from my hope that Tomlin will become the greatest coach in Steelers history.

    Let's let these guys coach before we judge them.

Listen, if MT fires BA, then Rooney is going to say, I think it was time for a change, because MT said it was time for a change. In other interviews, like the one I posted Rooney confirms that Tomlin gets control of his staff.

    He never said he didn't, either.

    Of course he says it's not important. Because if he would have admitted that A) He fired Arians himself, and B) He only did it AFTER Arians already had left for his off season home, he would look like the unqualified jackass he sounds like when he tries to talk football even more than he does now.

    Art II also went down to the Senior Bowl. Why? He's not a talent evaluator. He's not a scout. He's an owner who needs to learn his place and stay out of the way of the football people he's paying to do those jobs themselves.

    Steelers fans and their media used to laugh at owners like Jones and Snyder.

    But now Art is acting just like them.
