Report: Roethlisberger expected to get 4-6 game suspension

Ben Roethlisberger is expected to be suspended 4-6 games for violating the NFL personal conduct policy, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.

The suspension will be a minimum of four games.  ESPN expects it to be a conditional six-game suspension that can be reduced to four games based on Roethlisberger’s behavior and compliance with clinical evaluators.  Counseling may wind up being part of the deal, in addition to possible random alcohol testing.

The Steelers were reportedly bracing for an eight-game suspension, so this news may come as a small relief. 

If Roethlisberger were to miss four games, he could return to the team after a Week Five bye.  Pittsburgh’s first four lucky opponents: Atlanta, Tennessee, Tampa Bay, and Baltimore.

Roethlisberger is expected to accept the punishment without appeal, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.

    Way to much. . . Foster should get 2-4 then.
    No means No – No charges No punishment

  2. bspurloc says: Apr 21, 2010 10:36 AM

    so is it 4 or 6?
    maybe 5?
    Rumor is…. it might be 5.

  3. Coach Stram says: Apr 21, 2010 10:36 AM

    Not enough to have any impact.

  4. fmax4 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:36 AM

    For those who wanted him traded, this eliminates that theory.

  5. StevieMo says: Apr 21, 2010 10:37 AM

    It was going to be 8 games but Ben forced Goodell into a dank restroom and assaulted his way down to 4-6.

  6. BillsFan27 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:37 AM

    A small relief that an (alleged) rapist gets to play football again. Great team leadership.

  7. Poo Flinging Monkey says: Apr 21, 2010 10:38 AM

    The Steelers still have to trade this piece of crap if they want to continue their charade of being a team of honor. Their numerous championships have been tainted by the recent transgressions of their current team leader.
    Rooney needs to step up to the plate and deal this idiot to Al Davis, or some other moronic owner.

  8. rushman412 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:38 AM

    Well I guess ben has to take it like a man. I don’t agree with it but oh well. Guess the nfl will be suspending anyone now that is not guilty

  9. ALLDAY says: Apr 21, 2010 10:38 AM

    THAT IS JUST DANDY, WAY TO GO BEN R.

  10. mockingbrd says: Apr 21, 2010 10:38 AM

    What’d he do?

  11. toe-to-toe bird law says: Apr 21, 2010 10:39 AM

    Pittsburgh’s first 4 games are against Atlanta, Tennessee, Tampa Bay and Baltimore. If they’re lucky, they only go 2-2 during Ben “I’m not supposed to do what in a bathroom?” Roethlisberger’s absence.

  12. billsftw says: Apr 21, 2010 10:39 AM

    nicely done NFL. slap on the wrist for not one but two sexually assault charges. Imagine if this player had no impact on ticket sales? think he would be even allowed to sit on the sidelines. Big Ben is a big scumbag

  13. realitypolice says: Apr 21, 2010 10:40 AM

    Bravo, NFL.
    It will no doubt get reduced to 4, because unless BR is even more retarded than he now appears, he will be an absolute choir boy between now and then.
    Despite what Steelers fans think based upon my posts being critical of BR and Steeler fans for blindingly supporting him, I actually like and respect the Steelers organization. I hope that BR takes this lesson, grows the hell up, and starts acting like a 28 year old adult.
    Then, and only then, should the Steeler fans be proud of him again.

  14. drewlipto says: Apr 21, 2010 10:40 AM

    I think its ridiculous that he gets more than guys who were actually convicted of crimes. Listen, I’m a Steelers fan and I want him traded, because I’m tired of his act, but Goodell is not the law. Convicted criminals got lighter suspensions.

  15. stiller43 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:40 AM

    It will end up being 4 games. He can come back and win us 10 of those.
    We’ll at least win 2 of those without him.
    Go Steelers.

  16. Cutwolf says: Apr 21, 2010 10:40 AM

    6 games for nothing more than sensational accusations. Gotta love it.
    It’s a shame how the media — Florio, in particular — are so convinced of Ben’s guilt that they don’t stop to think about the possibility that maybe, just maybe, the accusations were untrue or highly exaggerated.
    Where is Jared Allen’s suspension for threatening to break that guy’s neck (paraphrasing)?

  17. Veritas Amber says: Apr 21, 2010 10:40 AM

    Wow, I was expecting him to get a slap on the wrist. For once I agree with Goodell.

  18. mr.bozojones says: Apr 21, 2010 10:40 AM

    I thought it would be 2, before the D. A. released his report last week. Then I figured 4 would be the minimum, with a max of 8. Never underestimate the ability of Ben to screw up even more, between now and the end of his suspension. More molested women may surface. There is a decent chance, he won’t play at all this year.

  19. marktg30 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:41 AM

    Sounds like the lack of Prime Time games in their first 6 games wasn’t just a coincidence after-all…
    Nice priorities NFL… Nice.

  20. DanSnyder says: Apr 21, 2010 10:41 AM

    damn. Good thing they traded for leftwich.

  21. mr_snrub says: Apr 21, 2010 10:41 AM

    Way too light. I’d rather be a guy who had a few too many and accidentally ran over someone than a serial rapist.

  22. capitala23 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:41 AM

    Charges were dropped and yet still suspended. Anyone still questioning if he did something wrong??

  23. daroc32 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:41 AM

    yes!!! thats what he gets and all this talk of a trade please if i was an owner i wouldnt even touch this dude with somebody elses money.

  24. contract says: Apr 21, 2010 10:41 AM

    If he doesn’t fight this suspension, then he deserves an additional 6 game suspension for being a moron.

  25. Ricken says: Apr 21, 2010 10:41 AM

    So that means 4 games

  26. se18a29 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:42 AM

    Could not have happened to a bigger jerk. Steelers will finish 6-10 and be eveyone’s bitch this year. lol lol lol

  27. steelcity79 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:42 AM

    o goodie….now all the brothers can relax, the big white rich qb got his…..

  28. Dave3258 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:42 AM

    Like it or not , its a reasonable suspension when you consider there were no charges filed in this case .

  29. monger says: Apr 21, 2010 10:42 AM

    In other words, the league timed Roethlisberger’s return for the marquee matchup against the World Series, but it was just a coincidence.

  30. daroc32 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:42 AM

    he aint that good of a qb anyway i said my piece!!!!

  31. Hauschild says: Apr 21, 2010 10:42 AM

    Should have been a full year for the dirt bag. Leopards like him can’t change their spots – it’s in his blood until his libido decreases.
    Once you give a hillbilly like Big Ben free dibs at a buffet, all bets are off.

  32. bleedpurple says: Apr 21, 2010 10:43 AM

    Should have been 16 games. What a dirtbag.

  33. Packman316 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:43 AM

    RaperBerger deserves it! Hopefully he learns his lesson and stays away from situations like that but something tells me we will he from him again….AFTER he gets traded to some craphole like Oakland!!!

  34. Krow says: Apr 21, 2010 10:43 AM

    That’s not even a game a rape. Wow… it’s great to be rich and famous.

  35. FoozieGrooler says: Apr 21, 2010 10:43 AM

    ESPN is saying:
    “Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended for four to six games on Wednesday for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, according to multiple sources.
    When the suspension is announced, it will contain conditions that will allow it to be reduced based on Roethlisberger’s behavior and compliance with clinical evaluators.”
    That sounds like it could be reduced from 4.
    So which is it?

  36. uncle fester says: Apr 21, 2010 10:43 AM

    You’ll excuse me if I don’t shed a tear over this useless, knuckle-dragging lump getting what was coming to him.

  37. DonTerrelli says: Apr 21, 2010 10:44 AM

    It’s not so bad now that we have Brian Sandwich back.

  38. myeaglescantwin says: Apr 21, 2010 10:44 AM

    ha
    now trade a 3rd for Vick please

  39. Steelerbroad says: Apr 21, 2010 10:44 AM

    Clinical evaluators?? LOL

  40. lololnpnp says: Apr 21, 2010 10:44 AM

    Nnnnnnoooooooooooooooooo!!!!!
    Does this mean the end of the totally boss Roethlisberger discipline posts??? I can’t wait to see what you use now to make up the daily 200 post quota. My suggestion, go back to ‘speculating’ on the upcoming labor strife.
    GO PFT GO PFT GO!

  41. js136202 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:44 AM

    I think it is really great that they think he committed a sex crime, so they included a clause that if he makes sure not to get caught committing another sex crime, they’ll reduce the suspension. There is something really morbidly funny about that.
    “Hey Ben, keep your dick out of places it shouldn’t be and we’ll knock a couple games off that.”
    You think after the 4 game suspension the league will inspect his dong and determine if he’s ready to come back?

  42. RhinoSteel56 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:44 AM

    I shouldnt have been Suspended at all.

  43. FLYBOY says: Apr 21, 2010 10:45 AM

    Ruthlessonfurburger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. Spoonthis says: Apr 21, 2010 10:45 AM

    Cue the haters.
    “He should be kicked out of the league.”
    “He should be thrown in jail”
    “A rapist only gets a 4 game suspension?”
    “If he was black……………”
    “The Rooneys paid Goodell”
    “WWWAAAAAAWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAA.”
    OK. Now on with the draft.

  45. Jamie in Akron says: Apr 21, 2010 10:45 AM

    4 games, right in time for the home matchup against the Browns

  46. Ollie says: Apr 21, 2010 10:45 AM

    So you are suspended for six weeks. But if you behave for three weeks, it will be dropped to four weeks. Now who would not walk the line for three weeks to get the suspension lowered. That would be pretty easy.

  47. Evpimp says: Apr 21, 2010 10:45 AM

    Should be a YEAR!!!!
    I hope he breaks a leg when he gets back

  48. Chapnasty2 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:46 AM

    This is it? Lesson to kids:
    It’s ok to whip out your manhood and tell a girl to go for it and if she refuses, bounce her head off of a wall because she obviously doesn’t know that she really wants it. But first be sure to make millions of dollars so that you can make it go away.

  49. FoozieGrooler says: Apr 21, 2010 10:46 AM

    “The Steelers were reportedly bracing for an eight-game suspension, so this news may come as a small relief.”
    No they weren’t.
    That was Florio’s tainted spin…

  50. Bdrunk says: Apr 21, 2010 10:46 AM

    Looks like the Ravens will get a reprieve in week 4 then although it’s possible they could bungle it up.

  51. PittsburghSteelerz says: Apr 21, 2010 10:47 AM

    Yet the Colts rapist gets nothing.
    Reverse racism.
    Conditional suspension is BS… 4 games if he doesn’t rape anyone else, 6 games if he does?
    Mike Vick kills dogs for years and get 2 games. WTF?

  52. mybuddyandme says: Apr 21, 2010 10:47 AM

    is that it? 4 measly games? just dont rape anyone in those 4 weeks big ben.

  53. ipeefreely says: Apr 21, 2010 10:47 AM

    Kick him out for a year, like Pacman. This is a joke.

  54. oldschool says: Apr 21, 2010 10:47 AM

    should be 8 games and be forced to wear a chastity belt…….

  55. Shawn says: Apr 21, 2010 10:47 AM

    The Steelers have good QB depth so it’s not to big of a deal. I would like to see the Steelers actually trade him and get more picks in this year and possibly next years draft.

  56. DirtyBird06 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:49 AM

    The Commish got this one wrong. And it infuriates me to no end the message the league is putting out.
    First off, if anyone read the actual report, there was something really wrong with this whole situation, and no matter the vantage point you choose to take, Ben is DEAD WRONG. He got away with this one (and apparantly another if the reports are right about him) and the slap on the wrist is ridiculous.
    I’m no Vick fan but he killed some dogs, okay. I’m a dog lover so I don’t condone that at all. He served his time in jail and STILL was suspended by the league for 4 games. SO…you’re telling me it’s okay for Ben to carry himself in such a manner and he gets the same suspension MINUS the jail time? The league should’ve hammered this guy with a year long banning from play. There is a routine here, folks! Imagine Goodell, just for a moment, if that girl, or any of the girls for that matter that he’s come in contact with, was you’re little girl and the cops botched the case; what would be his suspension then?
    The league makes me sick! These guys shouldn’t get excused just because they make you a ton of money!!!

  57. robert ethan says: Apr 21, 2010 10:50 AM

    How many lashes?

  58. steveinohio says: Apr 21, 2010 10:50 AM

    trade him

  59. 27Rice says: Apr 21, 2010 10:50 AM

    If it is a 4 game suspension, except for the Ravens game, the NFL really helped the Squeelers out here with their first two games coming against mediocre to awful NFC teams (where if they lose, tie-breakers won’t hurt them) and a game against a non-division team in the inconsistent Titans. Rapistburger’s first game back will be against the hapless Clowns AT HOME. Furthermore, the Squeelers get thier bye after game 4 which then gives Rapistburger TWO weeks to get back in the groove. Isn’t it ironic how their toughest games come AFTER the bye? Damn Goodell, could you have set it up any better than that?

  60. Phokus says: Apr 21, 2010 10:50 AM

    4 games and some hush money for sexual assault. There’s no justice in this world.

  61. Didier says: Apr 21, 2010 10:53 AM

    Personally, I think this is a bit harsh based upon the information publicly available about the incidents.
    But, the NFL may have information that is not publicly-available.
    Certainly, no one can complain that this punishment is lighter because of Ben’s status as an elite quarterback or his race.
    He needs to turn this incredible negative into a positive and get his act together because where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
    Thankfully, the Steelers will have Leftwich to perform credibly during the first four games.

  62. tommy997 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:53 AM

    So we can expect Eric Foster to get 4 to 6 games as well? The precedent has just been set by the NFL for the punishment when a player is accussed (but not charged) with sexual assult.
    If Foster does not get hit with a suspension, Ben better appeal this one big time!

  63. notoriousbri says: Apr 21, 2010 10:54 AM

    2 games per rape

  64. mccla21 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:54 AM

    4-6 games are you kidding me? Ben didn’t get charged with any crime. It should be no more than 2 games, even players who violate the Substance Abuse policy only get 4 games for first time violations. Ben could get up to 6 for poor judgement?? very poor decision by Commissioner Goodell.

  65. lurch's nyquil says: Apr 21, 2010 10:54 AM

    Should be 8 games. 6 for conduct and 2 for being a jackass.

  66. Silverback92 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:54 AM

    ok the precedent has now been set by the NFL. From now on I expect anyone who is accused of a crime, investigated and not charged to be given a stiff suspension. If I were Ben I would vigorously appeal this but I doubt he will. Maybe he should just quietly take his medicine. The guy may very well be one of the bigger douchebags on the planet but this is still America and I have serious problems when a guys life can be torn apart on the word of a super drunk 20 year old chick. Who knows what type of person this girl is. Apparently she was making a big point of telling everyone she was DTF. She could be a complete nut for all anyone knows. Harsh penalty for an act the police didn’t have evidence to prove even occured.

  67. nflisking says: Apr 21, 2010 10:55 AM

    Serves him right, the bum

  68. WVUColumbus says: Apr 21, 2010 10:55 AM

    Steeler Nation thinks this is a perfect punishment for BR….I would tend to think 6-8, but 4-6 works.

  69. surplus value says: Apr 21, 2010 10:55 AM

    kill some dogs – indefinite suspension. Rape a few women – 4-6 games.
    What about all the wife beaters in the NFL – what do they get for a suspension – nothing.

  70. thecolorurple says: Apr 21, 2010 10:55 AM

    It’s awesome that a guy accused of sexual misconduct three times can get a reduction in sentence for going to counseling.
    Are you f**king kidding me?
    Justice is a farce.

  71. funi says: Apr 21, 2010 10:56 AM

    Steelers go 3-1 easily!!! Atl won’t be able to run, Tenn can’t pass, T.B is T.B, and Ravens at Pitt is always a 4-6 point game and Dixon took Balt to OT in Balt last year!

  72. BroncoInMontana says: Apr 21, 2010 10:56 AM

    It remains to be seen if this “report” is accurate or not, but its really what we’ve been hearing the entire time.
    Although many people won’t like it, Goodell is making a very clear point with this particular suspension…that the laws of the independent organization that is the NFL are separate from the laws of the court…a point he has been attempting to make through press releases and interviews but has never had a chance to put into practical application…at least not to this degree.
    The NFL is FAR from the first “company” to do this. If a fortune 500 CEO is photographed in a strip bar after hours with his shirt unbuttoned and champagne flowing down his chest, surrounded by naked women, chances are the company he works for will strongly reprimand him for those actions even though he did nothing “illegal” in the eyes of the local law enforcement.
    All major corporations have laws and rules of conduct subject to assessment apart from the police. This seems strange because it is really the first time the NFL has ever instituted such a policy (Although I know with the Adam Jones situation there was something similar.)
    Goodell is simply running the NFL the way any other big money business is ran. Employees are responsible for their conduct in the eyes of the people investing in the product (in this case, the fans), as much as they are responsible for it in the eyes of the law.

  73. Weegie Thompson says: Apr 21, 2010 10:56 AM

    4 Big Ben-less weeks and than a bye…no worries. Toughest game will be the Ravens game and the Steelers game reeeeeally close to beating them with Little Dennis last season.

  74. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Apr 21, 2010 10:57 AM

    Just had a thought about the whole Terry Bradshaw angle on Roethlisberger. Bradshaw and those guys were no angels either back in the day.
    As a matter of fact, watch North Dallas 40. I know it’s a movie but movies and stories about their behavior back in the day means the old timers ought to be very careful where they tread.
    Anyone know which treatment facility Roethlisberger is going to during his time off?

  75. mooremi9 says: Apr 21, 2010 10:57 AM

    Rumor I heard was Ben was caught making out with another man and wanted to squash the gay comments so tried to have sex with a women but didnt know where it went and she said no to where he wanted to put it and thats why Ben got forceful.

  76. sweetleb says: Apr 21, 2010 10:57 AM

    This just put a target on every NFL player who goes clubbing. Pay me hush money or lose 4 weeks of pay.

  77. PerchSports says: Apr 21, 2010 10:58 AM

    4-6 is too low. I think everyone knows that. Too bad, I wish he was suspended for 15 games, so the Browns could make him look like a fool like they did last year.

  78. Steel Dahn Sahth says: Apr 21, 2010 10:58 AM

    Great…
    Ray Ray charged with murder, acquitted, 0 game suspension.
    Batch accused of drugging a girl and gang raping her. 0 game suspension.
    But yeah, let’s give 4 to 6 games to a big dummy who had drunken sex, with no charges, no trial, and an accuser that changed her mind.
    Makes no sense. And here everyone thought there was a double standard for a white boy superstar. There is, an unfair one towards him.
    Sure, he might deserve a punishment, but this is setting a dangerous precedent.
    What if Jerome Bettis was suspended and/or traded/released after he was accused of rape? Oops, the accuser later admitted she was lying. But in this case, I guess it’s guilty until proven innocent. There’s your double standard.

  79. flavordave says: Apr 21, 2010 10:59 AM

    This 28 year old frat boy should co star with Will Farrell

  80. go big green says: Apr 21, 2010 10:59 AM

    i cant say i saw that coming. wow, good to see the nfl not looking the other way on this and just handing him a slap on the wrist.
    and as a jet fan that could possibly need a wild card bid to get in the playoffs again this year, i fully support any suspension that is handed down to weaken a pitt team that could be in contention themselves.

  81. Steel Dahn Sahth says: Apr 21, 2010 11:02 AM

    Suspension for drunken sex and no crimes…
    Nice.
    I wonder if Goodell will be wearing a burka when he makes the announcement. The prophet Mohammad is surely pleased.

  82. edgy1957 says: Apr 21, 2010 11:02 AM

    This is close to what I feel is fair. I would rather see 6 with the ability to go up or down by 2 games but a minimum of 4 games.
    Now, there are two schools of thought for a result of 0-4 and 4-0 and I understand them: 0-4, the team will see how much they need Ben and he will have carte blanche to rape and pillage while 4-0 shows the team that they can win without him and they won’t be so reluctant to suspend him next time. I would rather see the former so that Ben sees that there are consequences to his actions.

  83. robert ethan says: Apr 21, 2010 11:03 AM

    Ruthless has the choice of long term counselling and continued monitoring of his lifestyle or a quick and simple “procedure” at the local veterinary clinic.

  84. LarryBird18 says: Apr 21, 2010 11:03 AM

    Ya, if Ben is out you can bet your ass they will be 1-3 going into week 6.
    Gotta love it!!!

    ===================
    Why?

  86. madmike77 says: Apr 21, 2010 11:03 AM

    So 4 games for Foster and 2 for Allen?
    Sounds about right.

  87. steelersquealer says: Apr 21, 2010 11:04 AM

    Call that Georgia lawyer and appeal this decision. Everyone knows when a woman says No she means yes. How can you penalize that common knowledge?

  88. dogma1 says: Apr 21, 2010 11:04 AM

    hahahaha, Steelers are a joke!

  89. buckeye044 says: Apr 21, 2010 11:04 AM

    Steelers still have a Defense.

  90. The Coop says: Apr 21, 2010 11:04 AM

    a game per rape / sexual assault. seems fair.

  91. CRockU says: Apr 21, 2010 11:06 AM

    Give me a break, he DID NOTHING WRONG!!!

  92. Big Blue says: Apr 21, 2010 11:06 AM

    Wow. Seems kind of harsh if its 6 games. I wonder what Shaun Rogers will get for being arrested with a LOADED GUN at the AIRPORT.

  93. ShootahCowboy says: Apr 21, 2010 11:08 AM

    Good, now Ben can go for a ride on his bike without his helmet….

  94. rogoceo says: Apr 21, 2010 11:09 AM

    Ok for all of you closet attorneys. He was not arrested or charged with anything. So it is a bit unfair to call him a rapest. At the worst, he is only guilty of being stupid and really creepy, but a rapest he is not. Do I want him on my favorite team? No! Should the Steelers trade him, yep, if the price is right. But lets be real here folks, he has been found guilty of nothing in court, and only of being an idiot in reality. Cut the BS and move on….its done…..

  95. Steel Dahn Sahth says: Apr 21, 2010 11:09 AM

    Maybe Ben should just punch women since Cable got not suspension.
    Any suspension in unjust.
    Hey fans, I have an idea… Let’s all go falsely accuse the stars of our most hated rival teams. It seemingly doesn’t matter if teh charge is true, if it can be proven, or even if there is enough evidence for an arrest. The precedent will be set, and you can get this star suspended.
    Let the flood gates open.

    The Steelers still have to trade this piece of crap if they want to continue their charade of being a team of honor. Their numerous championships have been tainted by the recent transgressions of their current team leader.
    Rooney needs to step up to the plate and deal this idiot to Al Davis, or some other moronic owner.

    For all you squeeler fans saying he should not have been suspended because he was not charged with anything….. The suspension is a result of Ben defiling the NFL’s integrity by repeatedly putting himself in bad situations.
    Read the police reports and statements, he OBVIOUSLY took advantage of a drunk girl and had sex with her without her full consent.
    Ben is a scumbag, he is a womanizer and a shitty human.
    I hope he screws up again before his suspension is over and gets banned from the NFL.

  104. BirdsFan4Life says: Apr 21, 2010 11:14 AM

    There is a double standard here – he should have been suspended at least 8 games but because he’s a 2 time SB winning QB…..
    According to USA Today, the top 7 suspension handed down in the league have been:
    16 games “Pacman” Jones, 2007, violating NFL’s personal-conduct policy
    16 games Ricky Williams, 2006, violating NFL’s substance-abuse policy
    16 games Koren Robinson, 2006, violating NFL’s substance-abuse policy
    16 games* Darrell Russell, 2004, violating NFL’s substance-abuse policy
    10 games Josh Evans, 2003, violating NFL’s substance-abuse policy
    8 games Chris Henry, 2007, violating NFL’s personal conduct policy
    5 games Albert Haynesworth, 2006, on-field behavior
    He raped a drunk, underage college girl. He knows it and is lucky she doesn’t want it pursued in the courts.
    The message being sent here is that using drugs (getting caught using them more then once) deserves more of a punishment then alledgely raping 1 or 2 women…
    What’s worse, carrying around a few illegally purchased guns or raping someone? Smoking weed or raping someone? Stomping on another players head while they’re on the ground after a play or raping someone? I’m not saying I approve of any of those actions but there must be a double standard if Roethlisberger only gets a 4-6 game suspension.
    The Steelers should trade his a$$ now – even if only for a bag of balls or better yet, simply release him. He’s a joke and the Steelers are kidding themselves if they think this type of suspension (costing him $2M-$3M) is going to change him. They gave him an 8 year, $108M contract 2 years ago including a $25M signing bonus.

  105. steelersmichele says: Apr 21, 2010 11:14 AM

    I hope everyone here thinks long and hard about what this decision means for every player in the league–that your favorite player can be suspended just for someone pointing the finger at him.
    The outcome of this situation sets a precedent for the future. A player can be accused of doing something, never be arrested, charged or found guilty and get suspended for his actions.
    I know there are a lot of Steelers haters on this site and they hate Ben and just want him punished, but I think people are forgetting the long term consequences.
    Basically, Deb and I can accuse a player on your team of sexual assault and that player will end up being suspended.
    Or, a few Redskins fans can go to a Dallas game and accuse Tony Romo of assault just to get him suspended a few games so the Redskins can have a better record. Yeah, it sounds ridiculous…but that’s what this suspension means.
    Everyone wants to crucify Ben, but when a player on your teams gets accused of something, doesn’t get arrested and isn’t charged, you guys will cry foul if he is suspended. So try to get the hate out of your system when you think about a suspension with no arrests, charges or guilt.

    If he worked for me, he would be out of a job. Once is an anomaly, twice is a concern. Three times is a pattern. This guy has a real problem that needs to be addressed.

    Well, that should at least appease the Baltimorons a little, as they’re going to benefit from his absence for one game at least.
    I’m not too worried though, it took the Ratbirds into OT last year to beat our 3rd string QB. ..LOL

  110. Masochist Bills Fan says: Apr 21, 2010 11:17 AM

    so the steelers play 6 games, have a bye in there and then are rewarded with their first prime-time game in week 8. I guess Goodell likes to reward and welcome back alleged sex offenders. With everything that man, (Goodell), is doing he is getting closer and closer to the NFL “jumping the shark” – trying to get a team in Europe, 3-day drafts, pro bowl before the Superbowl, not in hawaii (not counting the next two), an eventual lockout, red carpet at the draft with Whoopi Goldberg and Alyssa Milano, the list can go on. This is seriously becoming a mockery of everything that the actual sport is about. Diva’s at every turn, athletes that have no idea how to actually play through injuries, rules made because Tom Brady got hurt so now you have to careful not to say a mean word at the signal caller without fear of a fine. I love this sport, but it is riding a very large bubble that will eventually burst. Every bubble does and those that think the NFL is immune are kidding themselves

    I don’t see how you can suspend someone based on accusations. If someone gets accused multiple times of committing a crime, but it can’t be proven–does that mean they did it? NO. I’d love to see multiple women come out and say that Goodell raped them. Based on these accusations he’d have to be fired, even if they were completely false.

  114. justafan says: Apr 21, 2010 11:19 AM

    I really hope if I am ever accused of something that none of you are on my jury. I agree that Ben has not been a fine upstanding citizen by any stretch of the imagination. I also agree that Ben should be punished in some form by the NFL for breaking the Personal Conduct Policy, BUT, when did we start labeling him as a rapist when he has never been convicted as such. I see people on here say “two sexual assault charges”. If I am correct here he has NEVER been charged with anything……….EVER………..PERIOD. You all are calling for this guy’s head on a platter. You want him traded, thrown in jail, etc…..yet he has NEVER been convicted in court of ANY charges. Convicting a man in the public court of something he may or may not have done is a terrible thing to do. Labeling someone a Rapist is a very cruel thing and I think before you label someone a rapist you should be absolutely sure of your FACTS, not just your immature OPINIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  115. mr_snrub says: Apr 21, 2010 11:19 AM

    People need to drop the whole, “he hasn’t even been charged with a crime,” routine. You don’t need to be charged with a crime in this country to be convicted by a simple majority (they’re called civil suits).
    The law treats people accused of DUI as though they are guilty before a trial date has even been scheduled. If it’s okay for the courts to judge people without a conviction it really shouldn’t be an issue for all of you rape proponents when the rest of us call Benny out for what he is.

How many of you men(?) have been with a woman who sobered up and had remorse. (If you don’t think it didn’t happen to you, think how many times a girl didn’t return a call). Assuming you guys have been with a girl, right?
    Yea, you are all players. Ben thinks he is a player as well.
    As for the idiot that said Ben should be suspended like Pacman. A man ended up paralyzed with the Pacman incident. This girl ended up with a headache and feeling guilty.
    Who ever you guys cheer for, they all have unsavory character. Be happy they made an example of Ben considering no one else got this kind of punishment without even being charged.

    *********************************************
    What was he charged with again – I missed that part? Actually, I don’t think he was charged with anything, so get your shit straight. BTW – This comes from a guy who wouldn’t care if Ben was traded. The point is, don’t chime in if you don’t know what you’re talking about.
    And furthermore -if we’re going to talk about whether the value of the player determines the size of the consequence, we’ll see what happens with the Eric Foster case with re: to punishment that is given out by the league. Judging by public reaction, it’s the opposite of what you say. The first Roethlisberger case had EVERYONE talking about it, but you don’t hear shit about Eric Foster, because no one cares.

    Steelers fans blindly supporting Ben? That’s weird, given recent polls in Pittsburgh show that, if it came down to trade or no trade, over half of those surveyed indicated that they would prefer trade.

    If it is a 4 game suspension, except for the Ravens game, the NFL really helped the Squeelers out here with their first two games coming against mediocre to awful NFC teams (where if they lose, tie-breakers won’t hurt them) and a game against a non-division team in the inconsistent Titans. Rapistburger’s first game back will be against the hapless Clowns AT HOME. Furthermore, the Squeelers get thier bye after game 4 which then gives Rapistburger TWO weeks to get back in the groove. Isn’t it ironic how their toughest games come AFTER the bye? Damn Goodell, could you have set it up any better than that?
    *********************************************
    Yeah, you moron – it’s another Steelers conspiracy. People sat around for hours re-arranging a bunch of teams’ schedules just so the Steelers could get easy games during Ben’s suspension. Get the hell outta here.

    Now we get to read the alleged victim’s statement to the police. The main gist seems to be that she was too drunk to accurately remember what happened, but that part gets shoved to the side with the more lurid bits emphasized by the anti-Ben media.
    Here’s a little nugget that seems to have escaped our attention: The alleged victim was reportedly wearing a name tag. Instead of her name, she wrote “DTF.”
    As any subscriber to Bree Olson’s Twitter knows, DTF is text-speak for Down To ****.
    No means no. But DTF means DTF. We’re so busy emphasizing the former, and embracing the victim as a virgin queen, that certain aspects of the Roethlisberger incident are being ignored, and intentionally so, with the intent being to convict Roethlisberger in the media. No one should be victimized by a sexual predator. But it’s a good idea to not be easy prey. Or DTF.
    Why isn’t the inscription on the alleged victim’s name tag public knowledge? Why shouldn’t we know about her background? Was such knowledge part of the DA’s decision to not prosecute? Why wasn’t the DA trumpeting these tidbits as loudly as the anti-Ben details of that unfortunate night in Milledgeville?
    No means no. But DTF means DTF. And fair is fair.

  135. Holeinone09 says: Apr 21, 2010 11:28 AM

    4-6 games is too harsh. While I think it should not have been more than 2 games, I would accept it and move on. 6 is way too many and if that is the top end he should have the chance to have it reduced to 4 games. Which means the Browns will get absolutely killed on 10/17. They don’t have a chance in that game. Ben will be out for blood that game to win back the fans. Put a fork in the Browns on 10/17, then are done right now.
    With Ben sitting out 4 games, it should improve his chances to make it through the rest of the season without major injury and more rested. The Steelers can get through the early part of their schedule well enough without Ben.
    Now, the Rooneys had better start to show some love to Ben now and quit pounding him. Look at what Polian said today about his player for goodness sakes!
    The NFL has now set a precedent, and better be ready to start suspending lots and lots of players for getting into trouble but not being charged.
    And the drunken bimbo whore should have her name put in public and be crucified for being such a wonderful role model for other 20 year old girls. She couldn’t get her story straight, followed Ben from bar to bar, used a fake ID, and gets away unscathed while Ben takes ALL the blame. Bullshit.

    I think its ridiculous that he gets more than guys who were actually convicted of crimes. Listen, I’m a Steelers fan and I want him traded, because I’m tired of his act, but Goodell is not the law. Convicted criminals got lighter suspensions
    u mean like pacman jones who was suspended for a year yet wasnt actually convicted? goodell is the law and this is Pig Pens 2nd offense… he got let off the first time (which is always the case) and lets not forget, he wasnt charges but it doesnt mean he isnt guilty…. the police handled the situation unethically and odds are that she dropped the charges for a big settlement…

  139. dietrich43 says: Apr 21, 2010 11:34 AM

    I’m a Steelers fan, and based on reports, it sounds like Ben is a complete tool. However, he hasn’t been charged with anything – although what he’s alleged to have done is always a tough case to obtain a conviction. And, at least one of the alleged victims has a motive to lie – she’s suing him in the Nevada civil case.
    So, all the victims have a motive to lie (obtain money). But, that doesn’t mean they are lying – it just means they have a motive.
    It isn’t like they found a rape stand, date rape drugs, etc. Or a dog kennel, some canine corpses, and a fighting pit. There’s no physical evidence connecting Pig Ben to any of the allegations (at least, to my knowledge).
    Personally, I’d be quite happy to see Roethlisberger traded for a bag of used practice balls and some athletic tape.
    I think a 4-6 game suspension, with the possibility of good behavior knocking that down, is about the best that Goodell could do in this case.

    so are they going to start suspending players who have been accused of domestic abuse or have been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence or even accused of assault?
    If these players have been accused, they should be suspended. If they have been accused more than once, it should be at least an 8 game suspension even if the charges are dropped.
    I’m not saying I support Ben, but I am saying that in a few months, when one of your players gets accused of something, I’m going to be on this site saying he’s a scum bag, your team is crap and that the player should be suspended for a long, long time. Remember, all you need to be is accused to sit out a few games now.

    I don’t see how you can suspend someone based on accusations. If someone gets accused multiple times of committing a crime, but it can’t be proven–does that mean they did it? NO. I’d love to see multiple women come out and say that Goodell raped them. Based on these accusations he’d have to be fired, even if they were completely false

    I honestly hope it is only 4 games. Because Little Jen Rapistberger obviously has no remorse over the situation, and because of that, is extremely unlikely to change his behavior. Therefore, it’s only a matter of time before another accusation is made. And I’m going to be the first one laughing my ass off at the Steelers and the NFL.
    It’s outrageous that a rapist would only be given a 4-game sentence. But it IS going to be so much fun watching what happens this season when/if he actually plays.

    People need to drop the whole, “he hasn’t even been charged with a crime,” routine. You don’t need to be charged with a crime in this country to be convicted by a simple majority (they’re called civil suits).
    The law treats people accused of DUI as though they are guilty before a trial date has even been scheduled. If it’s okay for the courts to judge people without a conviction it really shouldn’t be an issue for all of you rape proponents when the rest of us call Benny out for what he is.

    All of you idiots need to step back and look at the bigger picture here: Roethlisberger was NOT suspended or disciplined in any way after he was accused of sexual assault the FIRST TIME.
    He is being suspended for shining such a negative light on his franchise and the entire league, and frankly I don’t think the suspension is harsh enough.
    Had he learned ANYTHING after the first instance he wouldn’t have put himself in a situation where his junk was on display to anybody.
    Further, rape/sexual assault is a touchy subject in any situation and I guarantee all of you that there are others who have been imprisoned for doing things far less egregious, and hopefully Roethlisberger considers himself lucky that his suspension is being served outside the confines of a jail cell.

    What’s important is that Ben and the Steelers think the punishment is fair – that it’s a good “trade” – that it’s reasonable on the out-dated rape/suspension chart. A 4-6 week suspension is probably a fair tradeoff – reasonalbe to do again someday for the right girl.

    His problem is the evidence, and the fact that he still has a open case elsewhere for the same thing. Nothing happend to him when he was charged in the other case, nothing happend to him when the “supposed” victim in the other case filed a law suit against him. I think that the NFL ( who have some of the better retired PI’s in the country ) have looked into this case extensively, I am sure they did not come to the decision of suspending a 2 time super bowl champ lightly. I am sure that if anyone is accused of and investigated for a crime not only twice but as the other case is still open they will recieve simular punishment.

  175. danlinker says: Apr 21, 2010 11:56 AM

    Good, 4-6 games. I love it. And now they’re talking about trading him? Love that even more. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving team.

As a top player in the league and a face of the NFL you have to be smarter than to put yourself and the leaugue in that position

    I agree with you in an odd way because the problem is the evidence…or rather lack of it since the D.A. said he didn’t believe there was enough of it to win a case.
    In my heart of hearts, I believe Ben is guilty of something and should be punished. But at the same time, I’m not sure I like where this whole league suspension with no arrest/guilty verdict is going. I guess I wanted the hammer to come down from the Steelers, which they said they would do. But considering other teams wouldn’t follow suit and would let a situation like this slide, then Goodell has no other choice.

    Almost as much hate directed towards a guy (Favre) whose only faults have been that he has an arm like no other that has ever lived, has the mental and physical toughness like no other that has ever lived and the inherent desire to remain as productive a member of society as he can be.
    Do I really want to know, or run with a guy that thinks Big Ben is cool??? I’d be willing to wager 30-40% of people have no problem with him at this point, and probably would even embrace his behavior, if given an ultimatum. Pretty sad.

    As a life long Steeler fan to say I’m disappointed is an understatement. Ben should be suspended for a year and the Rooney’s should cut him. As a woman I cannot support a team who chooses to allow this man to continue on in a leadership role. As a mother how can I allow my children to look up to a man who, although innocent according to law, is clearly guilty of disrespect and low moral judgment. Please, those of you with mothers, wives and daughters . . . please send a message to the Rooney’s and the NFL that we will not tolerate this behavior from our sports heros. For me, an X in the win column just isn’t worth the price.

If he is not being charged with a crime, then he shouldn’t have to miss any games, I do not like what this has done to his name and the steeler name.

    cbatchel,
    “Most businesses would let the employee go for such bad publicity.”
    Is that why Vick is still playing in the league? A federal indictment and a guilty plea and he still dons a uniform.
    Ricky Williams? Didn’t he go off somewhere and proclaim that smoking weed is the greatest thing ever? He’s still playing.
    Stallworth admitted to driving drunk and killing someone. Ray Lewis pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in a murder trial. Both still play in the league.
    I could go on and on and on.
    So basically your’re saying the NFL is NOT like most businesses since they keep players who give the league bad publicity. And if that’s the case, the Steelers should keep Ben…unless there are separate rules for my team.
    The NFL is in the business of making money. If Vick and Williams and Stallworth and Lewis and Ben make money for the league, they will play. The suspension is to save face.

    What a load of baloney. Do you think that this plays out as some Falcons fan wanting to get rid of Ben so that they have a better c hance of winning? The commish isn’t that stupid and neither are the rest of the people here. There’s a lot of smoke with Ben and that’s what has hurt him the most. The team gave him a big contract and he has a billion dollar franchise that depends on him twisting in the wind because he keeps putting himself in stupid situations. Let’s be honest, what you rather do: talk about this for the last few months OR talk about trades, free agents or the draft? For TMZ and PFT, this is great news but don’t you think that the Steeler Nation is tired of having to apologize for this guy time after time? I can remember when I was talking to a woman and the subject came up about Pacman Jones and she said that she was just ready for Goodell to suspend him and the team to cut ties with him because of all the crap that she felt made the team and the city look bad.
    If you can’t understand WHY he needs to be punished then why do you continue to comment on it. The guy was accused by a woman and while that whole fiasco is playing out, he was stupid enough to put himself in the same kind of position. He’s apologized three times now and what makes anyone think that this one is any more sincere as the previous two? Unless there are consequences, he’s going to continue to do stupid things until someone really gets hurt. I believed him the first time (and I still do) but the second one, not so much. I think that all he managed to do was get her drunk enough that she couldn’t give consistent testimony and the next time, he’ll probably GHB a girl so she won’t remember that Ben was around in the first place. BTW, here’s the standard that the military is held to:
    (14) Consent.— The term “consent” means words or overt acts indicating a freely given agreement to the sexual conduct at issue by a competent person. An expression of lack of consent through words or conduct means there is no consent. Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission resulting from the accused’s use of force, threat of force, or placing another person in fear does not constitute consent. A current or previous dating relationship by itself or the manner of dress of the person involved with the accused in the sexual conduct at issue shall not constitute consent. A person cannot consent to sexual activity if—
    (A) under 16 years of age; or
    (B) substantially incapable of—
    (i) appraising the nature of the sexual conduct at issue due to—
    (I) mental impairment or unconsciousness resulting from consumption of alcohol, drugs, a similar substance, or otherwise; or
    (II) mental disease or defect which renders the person unable to understand the nature of the sexual conduct at issue;
    (ii) physically declining participation in the sexual conduct at issue; or
    (iii) physically communicating unwillingness to engage in the sexual conduct at issue.
    If Ben were in the military, he would most certainly be facing charges for his actions and I doubt that any of you would be defending him as much if he were the third string QB or just some grunt in the Marines. The military holds their people to a much higher standard and things that you would think are of no consequence, will get them punished and Goodell is trying to bring that zero tolerance policy to the NFL.

    edgy1957,
    Did you read my entire post? Apparently not, because if you did in fact read it (and others that I have written) you would have understood that I said Ben is guilty and should be punished by being suspended. I do not support his actions.
    You wrote a long and useless piece of dribble on the military on a PFT site. This is football and the NFL, not the military, so you comments have no bearing on this site because Ben isn’t being punished by the military.
    You responded to my comment that fans should think long and hard about what this suspension means to players. I was simply stating that this suspension will make it easier for the league to suspend players for being accused and not arrested/charged/found guilty.
    From now on, when you read a post, please make sure you look up the big words and ask someone to translate the longer sentences. It’s obvious that you didn’t read the words that I wrote.

    Realitypolice:
    See your note again below. No where does it specify that you’re only limiting your remarks to any subset of the fanbase; the remark casts, or conveys, a broad generalization.
    With regard to your response, I cite polls from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette showing that a given percentage support a trade. Because the percentage is less than 100%, it leaves a sizable subset of the population that would not support a trade, which allows plenty of room for people to “blindly support Ben.” Therefore, where did I say that I don’t think this to be the case? My argument is put forth to counter those suggesting that all, or even most, Steelers fans ride Ben’s nuts. On the whole, this couldn’t be further from the truth, particularly once you get past extremely small subset of Steeler fans that post on PFT.
    At the end of the day, we’re both characterizing the other to be taking an extreme that neither person is will acknowledge taking, likely a result of mis-communication.

    Despite what Steelers fans think based upon my posts being critical of BR and Steeler fans for blindingly supporting him, I actually like and respect the Steelers organization. I hope that BR takes this lesson, grows the hell up, and starts acting like a 28 year old adult.
    [… and subsequently …]
    Listen, you idiots, nowhere in that post or any of my others have I ever said all Steeler fans blindly supported him. I have been critical of those who have, and if it’s your opinion that NO Steeler fans have been blindly supporting him, you haven’t met Deb.

    edgy1957,
    *******************************
    Let’s try this again: B-A-L-O-N-E-Y. It will NOT make it an easier. Apparently you didn’t get my point, which is your point was BALONEY. The commish DIDN’T just sit there and say “Well, Ben’s been acccused again, iet’s do something about it.” He took all that crap into account and saw that the legal system acquited him ala OJ.
    I may not like Goodell but I don’t see him being so stupid as to being pulled into your fantasy scenarios. I did read you words and I thought they were stupid but I guess saying baloney wasn’t enough for you so here it is: your points are STUPID. You’re saying the same thing that morons said when Goodell first started getting tough on the players and those conspiracy theories haven’t played out, have they?
    Oh and that long post apparently went over your head as well because what Ben got away with wouldn’t fly in the military. He DID IT but he got away with it because of her state of intoxication but that wouldn’t have flown if that were in the miltiary because that’s NOT an excuse. Saying that Ben’s situation opens up a door overlooks the fact that he was able to get away with his crime and it wasn’t just an accusation that took him down. If that were the case, there would probably be NO suspension or one that was no more than two games.

    Do you loser complaining about this suspension realise that he is not being suspended for the alleged sexual assualt he is being suspended for repeated acts that go against the NFL’s Personal Code of Conduct
    Pacman Jones never convicted suspended one year for violating… what for it the NFL’s Personal Code of Conduct.
    Chris Henry (RIP) suspende 8 games not for being convicted of anything but for what? You guessed it….Violating the NFL’s Personal Code of Conduct.
