We should all be ashamed of being so judgmental towards the guy.  After all, Big Ben won't sign jerseys for the other guys.

Quote from: Peter King
Goodell said he "doesn't feel any connection'' with Ben Roethlisberger. Not too surprising there. I'd always heard Roethlisberger felt he got railroaded on his six-game suspension that was reduced to four. But Goodell said he had "some very tough times'' with Chicago defensive tackle Tank Johnson before suspending him, and that Donte' Stallworth chafed when first told he'd be suspended for a year after a car Stallworth was driving struck a man on a Miami causeway and killed him, with the player being legally drunk at the time.

"The one thing I take a little bit of issue with is when guys tell me they're being screwed,'' Goodell said. "[Most often] they're not recognizing they have a role in it.'' Regarding Roethlisberger, Goodell said when he was investigating what to do with the quarterback, he talked to "I bet two dozen [Steeler] players ... Not one, not a single player, went to his defense. It wasn't personal in a sense, but all kinds of stories like, 'He won't sign my jersey.' ''


Well, HELL, a lesser man would've suspended Ben an entire season for something like that...

Yeah, interview the players in the locker.  That really gets to the issue of what happened down in Georgia.

I thought his conversations with Ben and any players were supposed to be confidential? Leave it to that fuck stick to bring it out during super bowl week.

I can't wait until he has to hand the lombardi over to Ben. Can't. Wait.

I think it would be more fitting for #92 to blindside him and force the fumble. Then Ben could just jump on the trophy while it's laying there. And then Mendenhall could jump on Ben.

Peter king retracted what he said. He claims goodell talked to 25 Players in the NFL. Not necessarily pittsburgh steelers.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.
