Ben Roethlisberger: brain damaged or rich bore?

  1. It’s a damn shame that professional athletes who have reached the pinnacle of their careers think they’re above the law and outside the bounds of common decency. Not every pro is like that, but lately, there have been too many of them. Fans need to start boycotting these teams and make it known that they won’t put up with this crap. I believe he got suspended for a couple of games??…he should have been suspended for the entire season as well as apologising for his unacceptable behavior on a public forum. He should also be required to go to counseling.

    If Ben had a reputation as a good locker room guy, I might contend it was a couple bad mistakes made by a young man.

    However, the behavior seems to fall more inline with years of whispered comments of his conceit, professional aloofness, his perceived “untouchability” within the organization and, while not a locker room cancer per se, not a leader either.

    On this one, I believe the NFL got it right. Sometimes there’s just too much smoke for their not to be fire. And like it or not, part of the job description is holding oneself to a higher standard.
