Sounds a little like piling on, but here it is...

Full disclosure, my son is named after Ben so this hits close to home, but I agree.  

If this stuff is true (and it might be) then write it after he wins the Super Bowl and everyone in the 'Burgh is fluffing Ben (maybe a bad choice of words but I am going with it.)  To wait until public opinion is turning or waning, just looks like piling on and I don't have a lot of respect for that.  

I named my son Benjamin Bradshaw because of the accomplishments of those men on the football field not because they were saints so I don't feel the pinch on it just yet.  Maybe I will...

That blog sounds like drunken ramblings to me.  Blah blah blah Steigerwald.  Ben needs to be taken down a peg?  Whatevs.  Is it any surprise that young millionaire athletes might be a bit cocky?  That any humility shown is merely a practiced response?  Steigerwald acts like he just found out that the Tooth Fairy ain't real.

Yeah, let's burn Ben at the stake while we're at it.

Then, after we find out a few facts about the case, we can decide if it was a good idea.

Steigerwald sounds like a fuckin' douche.  I skimmed a few choice words and was done with it.

This is a pretty interesting read on the subject.  Sounds like the odds are not in Ben's favor.

Saw that.

I found his argument... unconvincing at best.  He's a lawyer?  And he doesn't really seem to discuss the case per se, moreso the setting and tactics. 

I dunno, call me old fashioned.  I still prefer things like... what actually happened... the way those facts will be interpreted under the law... etc.

This guy makes the whole thing sound like who can throw on more window dressing.

So he's a lawyer.  So am I.
Unless I'm the prosecutor, my opinion on whether charges will be brought ultimately mean nothing!

I'm with you Finny.  Facts are what mean something.

I agree with you guys, I will wait until all of the facts are known.  I just found the article interesting.  Maybe that guy has watched way too much Law and Order SVU.
