I predict that before the the NFL draft next week the Pittsburgh Steelers will trade Ben Roethlisberger. With the latest about Ben's body guards dragging this woman into the bathroom (ESPN), and now her coming out saying she said "NO" (CNNSI), to Ben I think the ugliness and embarrassment for the Steelers is not going to go away. And I think ownership has had enough. Todays press conference in my opinion was merely to alert the league that he is available. And I believe they leaked a couple of things through the media ([url="http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d8178b2b1&template=with-video-with-comments&confirm=true"]http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d ... nfirm=true[/url] [url="http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/article/2010-04-15/will-steelers-entertain-trade-offers-for-ben-roethlisberger"]http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/article ... hlisberger[/url]), to alert other teams they will take offers.
For them to say that no discipline will occur till after the draft is washing their hands of having to do it since they plan on trading him.
So I am officially on record as saying that Ben Roethlisberger is going to be traded with in one week. And I think this is best for the Steelers.
