Roethlisberger to be suspended over latest allegations?

The Trib this morning talked about the very real chance that it looks as if Ben Roethlisberger may end up sitting the bench with a suspension if he’s charged in anyway in the latest sexual harassment case in Georgia.

If Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is charged following accusations of sexual assault, authorities are still investigating the March 12 incident that took place in Milledgeville Ga., his latest off-the-field troubles go to another level and probably to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s office. Under the league’s player conduce policy, Goodell has taken a hard line against those that tarnish the league’s image and punished players before they have been convicted of any crime. If Roethlisberger, who has been accused of sexual assault twice within the last months, is charged in the coming days or weeks in Georgia, he will be staring down the barrel of a league suspension and possibly a lengthy one.

    Messrs. Arians and Kugler are acutely aware of this possibility and, according to unconfirmed rumors, they are preparing a contingency plan for life without Ben (even temporarily)that might include (gulp!) a ground attack. Arians is taking remedial speech classes so he can learn to say “run” without gagging. Because without Ben, the Arians’ aerial circus will resemble a Chinese fire drill; Mewelde Moore could become our leading receiver; and the defense may have to score two TDs a game to secure a win. Could this be Back to the Future? Are we going to see real Steelers football again? Mirabulus dictu!

    I don’t know what Mirabulus dictu means but it’s nice to see that Ben’s cock is more important to him than his team and winning and the millions of Steelers fans across the globe that basically pay his salary! Miraculous dick servitude to you too Mr. Rapelessberger! I’m sorry, I’m pissed because I don’t see Brady, Sanchez, Henne, Edwards, Delhomme, Palmer, Flacco, either Mannings, Garrard, Young/Collins, Schaub, Cassel, Orton/Quinn, Fat-Russell, Ricvers, McNabb, Romo, Campbell, Rodgers, Cutler, Stafford, Favre, Moore, Brees, Freeman, Ryan, Leinart, Hasselbeck, Bulger, Smith, Young or whoever else I left out…How come I don’t see any of their names?!? I’ll stand behind my quarterback as soon as he starts standing for something besides coitus.

      Favre was an alcholic. Leinart parties in hot tubs with underaged girls. Russell usually goes to parties instead of practices. Romo goes on vacation the week before a playoff game instead of studying. Cutler is a known frat boy. Young went on haitus and contemplated suicide. Vick was in jail. Rivers is just a dick…. just to name a few. But i do agree with you, Ben owes it to his fans as well the orginazation to start making better decisions.

    Although I agree that Ben could be facing a suspension, let’s not confuse being charged with being convicted.

    Innocent until proven guilty.

    I doubt that he’d be suspended until convicted, which could take a long time. If this does go to trial, I doubt 2010 will be affected. Lockout 2011? We could be looking at a 2012 suspension.

    As hard as it is to fathom, I do think Ben is getting suspended by the league…. this year. as for how many games, I dont know. Maybe 4? Can Ben now be labeled as a cancer?

    Sorry for the confusion, Jay. I goofed and misspelled the phrase. My only defense is that it’s been years since I last communed with Cicero, and my Latin primer is mouldering away in a box in the attic. The correct spelling of the phrase is: ‘mirabile dictu’ — which translates as ‘wonderful to say’ or ‘amazing to relate’ — something along those lines. The shock of Ben’s bathroom escapades must have addled my grey cells and flushed four years of Latin right down the drain — along with the remnants of Ben’s reputation.

    he got to go. he is a great player been great for the team when he is on the feild but what he does to fans off the feild is just wrong, like the kid from make a wish thats just wrong to blow off a kids last wish that is going to die. he is heartless and thats not the kind of person i want to see wear a steelers jersey. i go to the training camp many times to see the players and most of the time when the guy sign things and talks to fans at the end of the day he just walks by to good to talk or sign thing or to say hi to all the great fans.
