Big Ben/Bradshaw is going to start fascist hate groups in Pittsburgh.

Big Ben is the Aryan Nazis and Bradshaw is the KKK.

Name me an NFL player who has neither been arrested, charged, convicted of a crime nor exhibited inflamatory language who has been suspended. It hasn't happened....there is no such precedent under Goodell's policy. Erik Kuselias made this point over and over this morning on ESPN. And when the host tried to bring race into the subject, Kuselias made the point even stronger by saying that a black quarterback who has never been charged, convicted, or arrested of a crime (and nothing inflamatory said) would never be suspended under the league's policy. Hasn't happened never will. That being said, Goodell will suspend Big Ben for fear of the Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons coming after the NFL. Better to suspend whitey than suffer the rath of the professional race baiters.

You do realize Art Rooney II has come out publicly and said that the team will suspend Ben don't you? The suspension will be handed down by the team. They are consulting the NFL on the matter to insure that there will be only one suspension and not one done seperately by each party.

this is strange because I don't for a second think that Ben should be suspended, infact I never really considered it a possibility...

but I hate the dude so much that I hope he breaks this throwing arm this year...

so whatever...I find it very difficult to feel sorrow for this giant bag of douche...

Well, it happened (and good thing). With or without a conviction, Big Ben is putting himself in danger by simply being a part of these risky circumstances. Dude needed a reality check; let's hope he can cash this one, bank the maturity and progress as a player, instead of regress.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the guy. At all, really.
