RE: Fire Can’t Melt the Pittsburgh Steel!


Greg, even Mendenhall’s employer seems a bit befuddled.

Mendenhall’s comments about 9/11 and Osama bin Laden’s death were hard to comprehend.

“I have not spoken with Rashard so it is hard to explain or even comprehend what he meant with his recent Twitter comments,” Rooney said in a statement released by the Steelers this morning. “The entire Steelers’ organization is very proud of the job our military personnel have done and we can only hope this leads to our troops coming home soon.”

Dan Rooney, the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland and Steelers chairman emeritus, today praised the work of his country’s military after Navy Seals killed terrorist Osama bin Laden.
