    Unfortunately, you are mostly right.

    There isn't an owner in the league that will take a chance until they know what his discipline will be.

    Then there is the huge contract and risk managemnet to consider on both his personal conduct and life along with his health (concussions).

    The Rooney's are in a position that they may not be able to slam dunk a 'morals clause' because he was never even charged let alone convicted.

    It sadly appears that fans who want to see justice will have to pray for 'football karma'.

    Ya know...
    Holy shit man. First you call Roethlisberger a sociopath and now you are openly hoping that he is injured?

    What's the deal with your Big Ben beef? I mean it seems the vast majority of us are embarrassed by his actions and want to see him held accountable to a much higher standard. But you have taken things up a few notches with your statements in this thread alone.

    How can you even come on here and spew this kind of garbage?



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    I wonder if he floats (BJ, not Ben!)?

    You hit it right there, NWS. The Steelers only got a 5th for Holmes... a LOW 5th, at that. What makes anyone think the Steelers FO could get much more than a rusty bucket of bolts for Benjamin? We think he's worth two 1st Rounders. But we're probably in the miniority.

    might as well throw us alex smith too if your the 49ers, maybe we could do something with him in addition to the 2 pics....but like mentioned up top, he is worth 2 first round picks talent wise but there is no way any team even the raiders would give us 2 first rounders for him based on his situation and reputation....well maybe the raiders but thats it...

    I'd be willing to bet that back lash wont be worse than what it will be when the Rams are say 0-8 to start next season.

    A team like San Francisco is close. They have a descent defense and also some offensive weapons yet no QB. Ben Roethlisberger could put them over the top. Alex Smith or Shaun Hill isnt going too. Think about it.

    If I disliked the drama mamma before then I wouldn't have owned an autographed helmet, SB XLIII jersey and a few other pieces of memorabilia.

    Granted, I thought he was dumb, but that was before he showed me he was pathological and acted as a sociopath does.

    You can love him all ya want.

    Just don't expect many outside the fanatic fans to respect ya for it.

    Or many in that same fan base for that matter.....

    Now Ben is a sociopath? I'm sure if you looked up the DSM-IV criteria you would find consistencies with a few of the reported "facts" in his cases. But to try and offer that type of diagnosis based on media accounts from 2 impaired and/or duplicitous individuals - all from the comfort of your couch - is at best idiotic.

    All it shows is you disliked Roethlisberger prior to these recent situations or you are too quick to judge others. Either way, it's real weak to come on here slinging that kind of crap. It sounds like something you'd see on a Ravens board.
    Don't feed the trolls.
