I in no way am attempting to bring politics into this website. This is a story about Steelers' chairman Dan Rooney done by ESPN's Outside the Lines.
The Rooney family has owned one of the most successful NFL franchises of all-time since the 1930's. and is one of the most well known and respected families in all of professional sports.
A true football family, and definitely worth the watch. The Steelers' players discuss how he is like a grandfather to them.
Dan Rooney is also who the "Rooney Rule," which gives opportunities to minorities in the application and interview process in the NFL, is named after.
Did I mention he is also the ambassador of Ireland?
