Ben is a idiot, but if they give him a 4-6 game suspension that is a little extreme. He wasn't convicted on anything (personally I feel he is guilty but $$$$ buys everything). The NFL shouldn't suspend him and should leave the matter up to the Steelers to do it. 1-2 game suspension (without pay) would be sufficient enough. I can't think of one player that was suspended that much for violation of the league's conduct policy/moral issues.

Here's the thing; Big Ben sexually assaulted a young woman. He should be going to prison. So he's suspended 4-6 games? He should consider himself lucky to get off so easily.

He was NOT convicted. What part is so hard to understand? How can you suspend a person 4-6 games when there NOT guilty of anything in a court of law except for being a low life cockroach? Hello....

Anyway, I wish the Steelers would trade him for a Top Ten pick or some kind of package deal. What a 28 year old is doing in a college town/bars with bodyguards is pitiful. He needs to get help and grow up.

Rolley and Sky stop showing your black and gold colors. First off Stewart did nothing wrong. Lewis was charged but found not guilty so its done with. Ben to his credit is smart enough to be a rapist where its a he said she said and he keeps getting away with it. Vick went to jail for dogfighting and Ben is a free rapist so the race issue SKY is null and void.

First off you dont have to be charged or commit a crime to be suspended in the NFL. Its just like any other job you can be suspended or fired under the policies set by your employer. The League has a code of conduct for all their players that they must abide by and if you dont they have the right to enforce punishment.
