Some new info in light of the impending sideline removal of the golfer. The interview from Ben's presser and question about Fitchner being a buffer

http://www.steelersdepot.com/2018/01/ro ... aley-fine/

Quote:
On Tuesday, Roethlisberger was asked if that report was true during his weekly interview on 93.7 The Fan.

“Yeah, I would say so,” Roethlisberger said. “Randy’s usually up in the box and has been until I think the Indianapolis game was about the first game that he came down. And when you come to the sideline, I mean, that’s a guy, the quarterback coach, you’re in meetings with every day, all day, at practice together, him and the backup quarterbacks, right. You guys are always together, so you guys know each other the best. You communicate the best with each other, you learn things. I mean, everyone knows that Charlie [Batch] and I were together so long, we communicated really easy. It was easier to come to the sideline, whether it was with Bruce Arians or Todd [Haley], or Randy, I mean any coach – and you can kind of talk with a guy that you’re with all the time, right. You know each other very well.”

Roethlisberger continued on with his explanation of why he asked for Fichtner to be down on the sidelines with him during games.

“So, to have that communication with a quarterback coach that I’ve been with for a long time, and the quarterbacks now, to come to the sideline when Randy’s up in the box, I can talk to the quarterbacks that I know really well and that I’m with all the time,” Roethlisberger said.” In order to go talk to Randy I’d have to go grab a phone, or grab someone’s’ headset, or whatever. So, we all kind of made the decision that let’s bring him down so that there’s constant lines of communication. I can go talk to him all the time, we can all communicate. It’s basically like having a quarterback meeting when all of us are there on the sideline and it just has made it easier in a sense that we’re always together. We know each other so well and so we can open the lines of communication for everybody easier.”

So, does Roethlisberger feel now that having Fichtner back on the sideline again has helped him play better?

“I think so,” Roethlisberger said. “Since that game I’ve been playing pretty well. I will give all the credit to Randy, how about that, but it does help to have him down there and those communications that we have.”

Being that the current speculation from La Canfora and others is that Roethlisberger’s relationship with Haley isn’t currently a good one, the quarterback was asked Tuesday during his interview whether or not those assumptions are false.

“Yeah, it has nothing to do with the relationship that Coach Todd and I have,” Roethlisberger said. “It’s more about making it easier to communicate with my quarterback coach, you know.”

Roethlisberger was then asked pointblank if his relationship with Haley is still good.

“Yeah, yeah,” the Steelers quarterback said.

In case you haven’t heard by now, Haley’s current contract with the Steelers is reportedly set to expire after this season. So, will Haley have his contract renewed should Roethlisberger ultimately decide he wants to continue his career? It’s hard to say for sure, but personally, I would bet that if Roethlisberger does decide to return for another season that Haley won’t be retained. If that’s ultimately what happens, odds would then be pretty good that Fichtner would take over as the team’s offensive coordinator.

Leaving the comedy in 43s thread we know Ben hates him, we know be never played a down in the league, he's a straight theorist and we've conjectured his hire included large element of nepotism. We also know the Steelers have an image that must be upheld. Let's hope this latest disgrace burns whatever capital he had and he's gone. That would influence Ben's return.

Can they just go ahead and Promote Fichtner already and cut bait with the re:Todd? Makes a great deal more sense and may mean a couple more seasons outta Ben. Hmmm....

I am hoping that regardless of the outcome of this year that they move on from Todd Haley.

Here in the Burgh I have heard all kind of stories about him, some are crazy, you think they must be made up, and then you see his dirty laundry on the local news. But this stuff is par for the course for him, his personal life, his crazy wife and antics have dogged him at every stop of his NFL career.

There was the rat in his salad, after his wife and live in babysitter bought in at a Dallas McDonald while he was the passing game coordinator for Dallas back in 2006:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/mcdonalds- ... -in-salad/

Here is Haley accusing Kansas City of bugging his office, of spying on him:

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... allegedly/

Kansas City fired him and were refusing to pay him the rest of his money on his guaranteed contract. I remember at some point the NFL had to step in and make a ruling but can't find the link or story for that.

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/repo ... is-salary/

Read up on how they were being sued by a guy who was watching their dogs:

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/repo ... ued-again/

They were also sued by the owner of a house they were renting:

http://www.wpxi.com/news/steelers-todd- ... /289235713

Then there are all of the sex related stories which won't be aired on KDKA, or WTAE or WPXI or the paper but make the rounds.

It wouldn't be too surprising to imagine that his latest trouble happened because somebody rejected him and his skanky wife's indecent proposal, and then followed him outside and kicked his ass.

This is for the Rooneys, whatever debt you feel to Dick Haley, surely, giving his son a job for the past 6 years has paid that off? I mean come on, enough already. Move on, fire this asshole and give the promotion to Fitchner in the offseason.

And at the same time appease your Hall of Fame quarterback, who I believe has proven he can still get it done.

Best part (aside from cheap yuks, and hard to overvalue that with two weeks to kill) of the whole thing IMHO.

That's exactly what I said in the other thread Scunge, in jest but probably on the mark

Maybe 43 can answer this? How does an East coast station get a K? That being KDKA...i thought that was designated for West coast stations?

I mean, KDKA is the oldest broadcast station in the country. That might have something to do with it.

Incidentally, I googled KDMA by mistake and it’s located in Minnesota. So there’s that.
