MONEY MAN: A source said that Pittsburgh-based Duquesne Capital Management Chair Stanley Druckenmiller "remains optimistic a deal will be worked out where he will gain majority stock control of the Steelers' franchise." The source added that Druckenmiller is "eager and ready to proceed with a purchase plan that is 'simple and uncomplicated' and would greatly benefit the long-term financial health of the franchise." The source added that the plan is "uncomplicated" because Druckenmiller "would buy out the four Rooney brothers in a straight cash deal that would be paid immediately and not over any period of time." The source said that the deal "would allow the Steelers -- if Druckenmiller becomes majority stock owner -- to operate without any debt or interest payments and enable the team to spend the necessary money to remain competitive in the NFL" (PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 8/7).
