    Ben's Suspension Reduced to Four Games

    Per PFT:
    Roger Goodell reduces Ben Roethlisberger's suspension to four games
    Posted by Michael David Smith on September 3, 2010 11:11 AM ET
    As expected, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has reportedly reduced Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's suspension to four games.

    Jason La Canfora of NFL Network is reporting that Roethlisberger met with Goodell today, and Goodell reduced the suspension.

    Roethlisberger was suspended under the league's personal conduct policy after he was accused of sexual assault this offseason. Goodell had previously said Roethlisberger would have his suspension reduced from six to four games if he stayed out of trouble, and more recently Goodell said Roethlisberger had done everything asked of him and more.

    it could be worse, it could be 6 games. its still not right but im glad it isnt more than 4 games. 0-2 games would seem appropriate.

    Ben's biggest crime is that he's white.

    I'm with you frank. It does no good to bellyache about Goodell now, I'm just glad it was reduced to four. Lately, and I guess it's because we were closing in on D-Day, I was getting more and more nervous that he was going to throw a curveball and leave it at 6. I'm glad I was wrong.

    Four or six is the same thing. Here's was Goodell's chance to right his wrong. And he wouldn't do it. Why? Ben's white, and Goodell loves the city of Baltimore.

    It's not a coincidence that one of the four games Ben is missing is against the Ravens.

    uhhh it is? last time i checked 4 is two less than 6. i could be wrong but i am pretty certain that is correct. if its the same thing than why did ben and the team care if it was reduced?
