Tepper speaks at Carnegie Mellon

Recommended Posts



Really enjoyed listening. Seems to be genuinely excited and honored by the opportunity to own the team. The raw emotion of the speech was a refreshing thing to see. He certainly hasn't forgotten where he came from. We could have done much worse.

He’s growing on me that’s for sure. I really appreciated his honesty and candidness regarding Trump. It’s refreshing.  Hopefully, a new age, progressive owner like Tepper will trim some of the fat off this fan base.

Really liked his passion also, almost seemed to get choked up when mentioning owning the team. Seemed more friendly and personable than what was reported before.

It's just a super nice change of pace to have an owner that is not averse to the public eye, especially when he actually has something worthwhile to say.

He's hardly progressive or new age at all. More like John McCain or the Bush family than any progressives. And he's going to run this franchise very very old school like the Steelers have for 50 years--which isn't a bad thing, as long as he can do it right and not screw it up like JR did. Yet to be seen whether he succeeds though. I'm rooting for him.

He certainly doesn't seem like the person described originally. He seems like a nice guy who came from nothing. I'm excited

Yea, I like him. I like that even as a man with a great deal of power, he’s still about doing the right thing. He also seems to be an honest man, and in today’s climate, doing the right thing and honesty aren’t valued as much. You’ve got people who are in higher positions of power than him lying, and not doing the right thing.

Please don’t be like JR, Mr Tepper. I wanted Rubin, but I’m ready to give our new owner a chance. Just keep being honest, and don’t play us as idiots. Great speech!

Didn’t realize he had his doctorate. Anyone know what he studied?
