    It's all rumor... He ain't going anywhere. Ben's agent just released a statement saying Ben is totally happy and wants to win more champiionships in the black & gold...

When the going got tough, he wanted to leave the situation he helped create!

    Long story short, I am a Laker fan--but NOT a Kobe fan. In the same way, if this report is true and Ben does ask out, I will not hold him in regard any longer. We, as fans... we don't get to leave whenever we see fit. So why should guys who are paid ridiculously well, to love the team, be given carte blanche to up and leave anytime things get bad.
    Maybe you should focus your anger on ownership and management - they allowed this to happen. Why should Ben play for a team that doesn't respect him and wants to live in the 70's?

    This is 2013... The social media Twitter, and all the rest, is the culprit... Twitter is a waste of time. imo. Wish it would go away.

    From BigBen7.com

    "I'm unhappy with the offense when we don't produce and that's as much on me as anybody. As far as me wanting to go somewhere else or anything like that, I mean that is completely unacceptable, I don't know where that came from. It's one of the most BS stories I've ever heard of! I've always said I want to be a Steeler for life! I love it here, I'm happy here. I don't want to go anywhere. No one in my family, in our camp, agents, no one has ever said anything about that, so wherever this was made up from, it's totally false.

    "This is ridiculous! I don't want to go anywhere, I love it here! This is family! This is where I want to be, and where I've always wanted to be. I don't want to play for anyone else..I'm a Pittsburgher. This is home. I'm so proud to raise my kids here. I want to finish my career here, however long that is. I don't want to play for anybody else. This is it for me!" -- Ben, to the media in reference to the rumor he wants to be traded because he is unhappy playing for the Steelers.

    Are you saying ownership and management have absolutely no blame in how bad this team is?

    Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. Colbert and company pick'em, its up to the players after that...Ben is responsible for Heath Miller's lack of success this year too.
