May as well start the thread given the news about Roethlisberger's suspension. He seems to have self-destructive tendencies like many big time athletes and entertainers. Is it just me or does anyone else see a comparison to Mike Tyson or Michael Vick? He needs to grow up and realize the expectations the Steelers, the NFL, and the fans have of him. He most certainly does need professional counseling. Something has happened in those assault allegations. One allegation can be viewed as possibly gold digging. Two or three instances are a trend and I think the police know something happened, they just didn't have enough evidence.

The Steelers and the Rooney family have storied reputations and they are not going to see it sullied by "Big Ben".

There's already rumors about Big Ben being traded. If he's sidelined for 6 games, he won't be of much help to them anyway for this season.

Maybe he should take tips from Tiger. None of his women screamed foul until Elin brought it out in the open (I'm being facetious). Seriously, though, these guys are young, given too much, and believe they're some type of demi-gods. He does need counseling and I hope he'll obey the orders to seek it.

$2.8 million dollar fine seems like a lot to us, but it's a drop in the bucket for him. I would hope the humiliation/shame this has brought him will do more than the fine. If someone says no, they mean no, no matter who you are.

Well, the first round of the draft is done. I really wasn't surprised at most of the picks. I think a few that didn't go in the first round, probably should have, but maybe the coaches saw things I didn't.
