So, do the Rooneys sit his ass down for two games for being Big Dumb and Stupid? Or do you let him skate?

No, they let Goodell do the dirty work and slap him for supplying alcohol to an underage girl, and make him do some substance abuse whatever stuff.  Chris Henry got 8 games for a bigger combo of ills, some of which was supplying to 3 underage girls; I would guess Ben gets 2 games.  We'll see.  He's white, so he can't be a "thug," therefore maybe he skates under Goodell's system?

Text of letter from Roethlisberger's accuser to DA
Monday, April 12, 2010
Text of the letter from the attorney for Ben Roethlisberger's accuser to District Attorney Fred Bright:

March 17, 2010

Re: Benjamin Roethlisberger

Dear Mr. Bright:

As you know, we represent the complainant in the referenced matter, and it is about that that I write you at this time.

After a great deal of deliberation, our client has instructed us to advise you that she does not want to prosecute this matter further. While I am well aware that the prosecution decision rests with the district attorney, and not a complaining party, it is appropriate that you be aware of this fact as you make your decision.

What is obvious in looking forward is that a criminal trial would be a very intrusive personal experience for complainant in this situation, given the extraordinary media attention that would be inevitable. The media coverage to date, and the efforts of the media to access our client, have been unnerving, to say the least.

In short, no matter what the outcome of a criminal trial, our client has had sound professional advice since this incident that participating in a public trial would not at all be in her best interest as she goes forward with her life. That is a decision that we, as her attorneys, fully support. As should be clear from what I have said here, this decision does not reflect any recanting of our client's complaint, but simply a realistic, personal decision as to what is in her best interests, and what it would be like to go through a trial with the expected media attention.

Please let us know if you need any further information.

With best regards, I remain very truly yours

David F. Walbert
