So basically, they have one witness: long-time Steeler Najeh Davenport.
Articles from OTL also drew a lot from Mike Logan. I'd say that Logan has earned a lot more respect than Dump.
I do think that it's possible that Ben suffers from the same problem that afflicts lottery winners. Many people who win the lottery end up with their lives destoryed by having their social positions transformed completely - and I imagine that has to happen with many professional athletes, too.
Yes, I could see that. But the problem is pretty obvious now, hopefully even to Ben himself. There are enough people around him that want and need him to succeed that he has a chance to avoid that fate. Hopefully he will.
