Ben was an idiot to put himself in that situation to begin wtih but this whole thing now smacks of "let's make an example out of Ben". OK, so what will the NFL do about the Colts' player, Eric Foster, who was accused of the same damn thing??? Better be another 6 game suspension for him as well, with or without charges being pressed.
This is bullshit and I guaran-damn-tee that if Ben is traded and we have a crappy season, the same people (fans) that are howling for him to be cut will be howling because the Rooneys let him go!
Polian: Colts won't discipline Foster
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian says the team will not discipline defensive tackle Eric Foster, who faces a sexual assault lawsuit.

A 22-year-old hotel receptionist is suing Foster, claiming that he sexually assaulted her in his room at an Indianapolis hotel before the AFC Championship Game on Jan. 24.
Polian said Wednesday that the team has no reason to discipline Foster because police investigated the incident and prosecutors later decided not to file charges.
He says Foster remains with the team and will participate in its offseason program.
The Associated Press is not naming the woman because it generally does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault.
