    Sorry Folks But Ben is Gone...

    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 (http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d ... nfirm=true http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/article ... hlisberger), 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.

    It's not the latest, the DA had the info. You don't think the Rooney's and Goodell don't have every bit of info and Goodell is reviewing it all before he makes his decision?

    Ben's friends, body guards, etc stories are all the same yet the accuser and accusers friends all have different stories.

    and I am officially on record as saying that Ben Roethlisberger is NOT going to be traded within one week. Big Ben will be given one more chance, and that is what's best for the Steelers.

    I know the info is disturbing but I expected to hear some greazy things about that night after it was over.

    I'm not sure about a trade though... however, I have seen FO's speak about commitment before trading a guy...

    not sure about this one though...

    Regardless of whether anything is true or not the more that continues to come is an embarrassment I think ownership is done with.

    Yes, but have you heard THIS front office doing it? That's not how the Rooney's work.

    I am firmly entrenched in the Ben will not be traded camp. Art II actually referenced to it in the presser. Not after georgie. If he does it again, well then he is as good as gone. But not now.

    I think the owners knew about all the details provided. I think it may shock a few "homers" who screamed how there was never any proof of contact or bathroom sex.

    The realist knew the details could be a little ugly.... it may sway a few who were 100% on board with Ben never being anywhere near this girl because Ben didn't come to their house and tell it to them first hand.

    Compete yeah. No denying that. We're not the Lions.

    But losing multiple AFC Championships...
