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.

I can't find it but would it start at 4-6 and could be reduced down further?  2 games?  None?  or does it start at 4-6 at a minimum... 

Either way, BS.  How many games was Ray Lewis suspended for when that guys "turned up dead?"  I get that there is a different sheriff in town and all but come on.  How about some level of continuity?

My guess is when he goes to AA or sex rehab or whatever they are planning it gets reduced to 4. For some reason I think 4 games will be the minimum.

I bet it gets reduced to two if Ben toes the line.

That would still piss me off but I could live with 2.  Should be none but, if they are going to do it, 2 seems right...

I saw this earlier. Maybe ESPN just swiped from here.

I doubt it will get knocked down to 2 games. I think he gets 4, minimum.

I would be pissed if it is 4 games.  This would set a dangerous precedent. Careful Rog....careful

Personally, i think he deserves 8.

When you adduce the cases of Lewis, Little, etc. and the lack of punishment, you're talking about fairness as opposed to justice.

I guess when I here this I wonder exactly who gets to set the precedent for morality...  Goodell?  I agree that what Ben did was sleazy but not criminal.  So then the commish is the moral police.  It is a dangerous precedent to set but so be it.
