American football star Ben Roethlisberger has seen better days. From leading the Pittsburgh Steeler to two Super Bowl wins to now being suspended for 6 games for violating the NFL’s code of conduct. When Ben came into the league as a rookie he quickly became the savior for a much suffering Steeler’s franchise. Fans referred to him as “Big Ben” and restaurants began selling the Roethlis-BURGER.
Now, for the second time in his career, there come allegations of a sexual assault. I won’t say whether I believe he is guilty or not. However, it is interesting that there were trade rumors so you have to wonder what the Steelers organization knows that they aren’t talking about that would want them to trade a proven leader on the field.
And if you think that I am just parodying a Pittsburgh player because it is a long time rival of my own Cincinnati Bengals, it is not true. When Chris Henry was having his issues with bar fights and other drinking issues, I told many people it doesn’t matter whether he feels he is wrongfully accused or doesn’t start the problems. You make enough money, keep yourself away from situations that might cause yourself problems. Unfortunately, now someone who people had admired, has left a bad taste in the mouth of many who used to be a fan.
