. . . I’d invest in the NFL team owned by Dan Rooney, our newest Ambassador to Ireland, recently named by Barack Hussein Obama (who has not yet been confirmed).
Well, here’s why:
Pittsburgh Steelers’ president Art Rooney II says he and his father Dan Rooney are looking for additional partners.
The Rooneys are seeking investors so they can buy shares from Dan Rooney’s brothers that would separate the Steelers from the family’s gaming interest and satisfy NFL rules regarding ownership equity.
The fact is that Ambassador Rooney has a huge conflict of interest that can’t be corrected, unless the Rooney family divests of the Steelers, which clearly isn’t the aim here.
Hey, maybe the lucky new Steelers “investors” can get the side benefit of a nice stay at the luxe 28,000-plus square foot, 62 acre pad provided to the U.S. Ambassador in Ireland.
If only a mainstream media reporter would keep his/her eyes out for the guest list of who stays there as Rooney’s guests in the next few years.
