I know there's a lot of smoke here, but I still want to know: where's the fire? If Ben was just partying and there was NO actual assault, WTF is the league going to do?
I can understand the Rooneys wanting Ben to minimize his exposure in potentially damaging situations, i.e., "trawling for sluts." But the fact is, he's 28 years old, he's not married, if the accusations are bogus then he hasn't broken any laws... We're asking players to make lifestyle choices... to the point that we can tell them not to go to nightclubs?
BTW, Colin Cowherd is an ass-flap, and Mike Wilbon has been the most sensible commentator out there. Basically: we don't know enough yet to burn BBR at the stake. Maybe he is playing a bit reckless, but don't most NFLers do what Ben is doing in the off-season?
All contingent on the charges being false, of course.
What did Cowturd say?
God, I have scorching case of Ben saga burnout, but I still come to these threads, looking for....something. Anything.
