Some final statements from the accuser and witnesses are now being released concerning the Ben Roethlisberger case. The statements describe the behavior of Big Ben and his entourage in the Georgia bar. More documents are here you can read as well.
Jerome Bettis told CBS News Correspondent Jeff Glor on “The Early Show” Friday that the accusations against Roethlisberger “came as a shock” and are out of character for him. Bettis said that a suspension is needed, but does think Ben can repair his image over time.
Hines Ward has come out and said he will retire after one more Super Bowl ring. While I hope that the next ring comes this season, I hope he reconsiders and at least tries to play out his contract. He is the brightest and one of the most recognizable face of the organization right now and everything the Steelers organization embodies. Ward has also now chimed in sort of on the Ben Roethlisberger situation.
You need some football, you say? Well some photos from the latest OTA are up on Steelers.com. No football involved, but at least it does point to football being right around the corner.
The final nugget today is a poll. Plain and simple. Do you think the Steelers should trade Ben Roethlisberger?
