Haley loses arbitration in dog-boarding case


Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is 2-6 this year on the football field, and he’s 0-2 in the legal system.

Both defeats have come in the same case, arising from allegations that Haley and his wife failed to compensate a man who boarded their four dogs from March through July of 2012.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, an arbitration panel ruled Monday that the Haleys owe Nick Fiscante $10,090.  Previously, a district judge had ruled in Fiscante’s favor, prompting the appeal to Pennsylvania’s mandatory civil arbitration process, a streamlined presentation of evidence before three local lawyers with no connection to the case or the lawyers.

The Haleys can again appeal to the next level of the Pennsylvania judicial process, a trial before a judge or a jury, if either party has exercised its right to request a jury trial.

    Todd is the guy who goes to parties empty handed and complains about the beer selection in the fridge…

    What a guy this Haley and his wife are, pathetic people.

    First Aaron Hernandez, then Richie Incognito, and now Todd Haley’s dispute with a kennel.
    This story will probably be distorted in Pittsburgh like Haley’s infamous “autographed napkin caper.” A Pittsburgh TV sports anchor told his viewers that Haley was in trouble for a “writing a gay slur on a napkin.” The TV station never did revel what Haley had actually scribbled on that napkin.
    Why ruin a juicy story with facts?

    Can we just fire this assclown already? …Oh Art Rooney II won’t because Haley is his boy!

    Holy crap, I’m in the wrong business!!

  8. detectivejimmymcnulty says: Nov 5, 2013 9:12 PM

    Who agrees to pay $10,090 to board their dogs? Are there legal bills tacked on to that?

  9. mrbigass says: Nov 5, 2013 9:16 PM

    What a turd. Pay your bills dude…..

  10. operwapitsai says: Nov 5, 2013 9:19 PM

    when you have so much money, why is it so hard to be honest with it?

  11. silvernblak says: Nov 5, 2013 9:19 PM

    Next will be his job! Loser!

  12. nnagi says: Nov 5, 2013 9:24 PM

    This guy is a chump…

  13. doctorrustbelt says: Nov 5, 2013 9:24 PM

    The pittsburgh steelers are a low character organization.

    No leadership.

    Loser richie incognito would fit in well with the steelers.

  14. fat4jc says: Nov 5, 2013 9:26 PM

    this bum is GUILTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (of ruining my team)

  15. crownofthehelmet says: Nov 5, 2013 9:37 PM

    I had a vision of Haley in his back yard practicing the WR screen, throwing a ball sideways to one dog while the other 3 block.

  16. ravenmomma says: Nov 5, 2013 9:38 PM

    Geez, just pay the man and move on. It’s not like Haley doesn’t have the money. He’s lost the case twice now…doesn’t that give him a hint that he actually owes the man for services rendered?

  17. 7mantel says: Nov 5, 2013 9:38 PM

    Funny ⬆️

  18. davikes says: Nov 5, 2013 9:41 PM

    The rate is pretty fair. Hopefully Haley has to pay the guy’s legal fees.

  19. 1mommicked1 says: Nov 5, 2013 9:50 PM

    i got excited when i saw ‘haley loses…’ and then i wasn’t as excited when it didn’t go on to say ‘loses job’

  20. johnnyjagfan says: Nov 5, 2013 9:59 PM

    Pay your bills!

  21. fumblenuts says: Nov 5, 2013 10:00 PM

    “The Haleys owe Nick Fiscante $10,090.”

    He’ll write “IOU” on a napkin and mail it to him………

  22. aequitas83 says: Nov 5, 2013 10:12 PM

    Depending on his attorney, he may have already spent that much just in fees. Might be time to just cut his losses.

  23. thegreatgabbert says: Nov 5, 2013 10:20 PM

    That’s like a thousand per month per dog. I can live on less than that.

  24. mrlaloosh says: Nov 5, 2013 10:22 PM

    Shoulda left his dogs with Michael Vick.

  25. bigbenh8tr says: Nov 5, 2013 10:25 PM

    My question is why someone boards a dog for 4 months? Out of the Country or does Haley have a farm that trains them or something.

    Not comparing him at all here but other than Michael Vick I don’t get it why you would leave your dog for 4 months

  26. primenumber19 says: Nov 5, 2013 10:34 PM

    When are supposed tough guys like schiano and Haley going to learn? Being a hard line coach only works if you actually care about your players, which is tough to do when you only care about yourself.

  27. sinclairsrevenge says: Nov 5, 2013 11:01 PM

    Come on, man!

  28. jjbadd385 says: Nov 5, 2013 11:06 PM

    To me, 10 grand is a lot, but to Haley its pocket change…just pay your bill already man!!!

  29. bcstiller says: Nov 5, 2013 11:22 PM

    Fire. Him. Now. Someone commented on an earlier post that this team looking like total dysfunction began with the hiring of Todd Haley. Mike Tomlin’s answer to all mistakes is “bench him” Hey stoopid, yer out of guys to bench!! That tells me he has no ideas. Rooney needs to step in. I don’t care which one. Haley must go.

  30. badmoonrison says: Nov 5, 2013 11:28 PM

    Seems like more and more coaches are having off the field legal issues these days. At least it draws the attention off of the players I guess.

  31. patsbrat says: Nov 5, 2013 11:54 PM

    Pay the man!

  32. upperdecker19 says: Nov 6, 2013 12:40 AM

    $10k to watch 4 dogs??? I definitely made the wrong career choice

  33. cheffyglenn says: Nov 6, 2013 6:49 AM

    Todd Haley is just a complete LOSER! In all phases of his life. Hopefully next yr another team can find out. Hope he gets dumped now.

    Put the dogs up for adoption. He’ll probably blame the dogs.

  36. pabrownsfan says: Nov 6, 2013 9:00 AM

    Good point bobzilla. Crown you actually made me laugh.

  37. cherrybop says: Nov 6, 2013 9:34 AM

    This guy needs to be fired at the end of the season if the team doesn’t see 8-8 at least. Getting tired of his antics.

  38. bobzilla1001 says: Nov 6, 2013 10:33 AM

    I agree.
    Haley needs to be fired.
    Ben had Bruce Arians’ 22nd-ranked scoring offense running sooooo smooth.
    The funny thing is: That wide reliever screen everyone so detest, that was the main staple of Arians’ offense. But no one noticed because the team was winning and the Steelers’ defense was holding opponents to 14 or fewer points nearly every game.
    Losing sure does make people pay attention.

    Karma will find justice when he pays big time in a few weeks while visiting the Big Dog Pound in Cleveland soon.
