    Re: Ben investigation nearly complete

    Given that it has taken as long as it has, do you think that there will be NO charges filed?

    The length of the investigation doesn't necessarily mean that charges will be filed. If there was an abundance of evidence (for example, if the "rape kit" at the hospital showed strong evidence of assault), charges could have been filed immediately. The DA may find that even after investigators looked into all avenues, there isn't enough evidence to make a case.

    Here's hoping for that scenario and Ben gets to OTAs very soon.

    I'm with you on that. But it seems like if they were going to press charges that they would have by now. Hopefully they have done a very thorough investigation and are about to close the case. Fingers crossed on that. Now Ben needs to never leave his house again!

    I think it means Ben will have a new nick name...Big Ben-dover....

    But lets hope not....Unless he is guilty...then he deserves whatever punishment comes his way...

    He is still a dumb f@ck....

    Doesn't sound like it is completely closed per this article in today's PG.

    Wish it was. Cannot believe that this seclusion and stress will not affect Ben on some level. Ryan Clark said in his interview on ESPN that when they hit the field, Ben is totally focused.

    Between this and Holmes, the season may start out to be a little rocky.

    This part is interesting.

    Asked whether investigators have encountered any difficulties in their probe, Mr. Bankhead replied, "No, other than with the media.

    "There are a lot of people out there reporting things and repeating things that just are not true. They'll be eating crow later. It may taste delicious like Thanksgiving turkey now, but later on, when the facts come out, it'll taste like eating crow."

    Just think if they come out when the investigating is done, and totally make this chick look like a money grabbing hoochie. Would be hillarious if they came out and said Ben did nothing wrong at all and this drunk chick was just gold diggin' and in reverse, they press charges on her for making the whole thing up or something. Probably never happen but I would laugh if it did.
