    Ben suspension: Four to Six games

    @Adam_Schefter

    Filed to ESPN: @mortreport and I are reporting that Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended four to six games, with conditions attached.
    Thinking it's 6 games, but will be reduce to 4 if he does counseling. So basically 4 games...

    I'm sure the condidtions will allow him to reduce the suspension to 2-3 games if he behaves.

    I would have been happier with 4 and then only 2 if he meets all requirements. Obviously the NFL is using Ben as the fall guy. He did nothing wrong, because they were not there to witness it.

    4 to 6 games...exactly what I predicted. And just about right, IMO.
    Franchise Bell; extend Brown; re-sign Harrison, D. Williams, and Matthews; sign the best of the available 2nd-tier FA help at Edge, ILB, CB, and maybe FS. Hope that Ladarius Green is healthy.

    Draft 2.0
    1. Haason Reddick, ILB/OLB, Temple
    2. Carl Lawson, OLB/DE, Auburn
    3. Chad Hansen, WR, California
    3. Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State
    4. Ahkello Witherspoon, CB, Colorado
    5. Tedric Thompson, FS, Colorado
    6. Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP
    7. Keion Adams, OLB/DE, Western Michigan

    I agree, I was hoping with 4, possibly to 2, but Mort sounds as if it's a MINIMUM of 4 regardless of his behavior from here on out. That's too steep IMO without an official charge.

    I'm ticked

    i expected 4 games. anything more is a bit much. at least we play the falcons at home and at tampa bay in that stretch. most likely we will be 2-2 or 3-1 going into the bye week.

    Report: Roethlisberger gets 4-6 game suspension
    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on April 21, 2010 10:34 AM ET
    Ben Roethlisberger will be suspended 4-6 games for violating the NFL personal conduct policy, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.

    The conditional suspension can be reduced to four games based on Roethlisberger behavior and compliance with clinical evaluators.

    The Steelers were reportedly bracing for an eight-game suspension, so this news may come as a small relief.

    IMO, he'll get the same suspension that Vick got. 6 games reduced to 2 if he stays out of trouble.

    There was an article stating that Ben would accept the punishment if he agreed with it or something like that. Wonder if he tries to get the labor union to fight it????
