Ben Roethlisberger SUSPENDED!

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, has been punished with a six game suspension from the National Football League for violating NHL’s “Personal-Conduct” Policy. What a load of pure bullshit. How can the NFL punish one of their players for allegations of supposed rape, when the case itself doesn’t even have enough evidence to support an actual court case? There will be no court hearing, there will be no judge and jury standing before him and there will be no jail-time, all because there isn’t enough evidence to support such… but yet… the NFL feels hearsay is enough to suspend one of their Quarterbacks.

Are you telling me that every time some bimbo who drinks too much decides to scream “RAPE!” that you’re going to actually take the broad seriously enough to suspend someone, when our justice system decides against doing the same? All it takes is for me to find someone within the NFL, claim they raped me, and have him suffer a suspension at the cost of me opening my mouth? What a ridiculous claim, and what is even more ridiculous is the fact that simple-minded and false claims can be taken seriously enough to cause punishment.

There is no evidence but a girl crying wolf, how can we base such punishments on the word that of female with no additional validity? He’s famous, she’s seen him somewhere, he must have money and these days everyone is looking for a reason to sue or at least get noticed somehow. I would have demanded a rape-test and when that test came back negative, I would have had the justice system show her what happens when people lie in an attempt to extort and slander a person in the spotlight. There’s a reason why her story was dodgy enough for the District Attorney decline pressing charges and for her to go as far as writing a letter to the DA asking that Roethlisberger not be charged. To add, the 20-year old college student told police after the incident she didn’t know if they even had sex. Um, darling, sex is required to claim rape. I feel bad calling you a “dumb bitch” at this point, I feel like everyone is already aware of that. Her story was “unclear. It’s foggy, and I couldn’t prove it beyond a reasonable doubt,” stated District Attorney, Fred Bright. 

I think it’s completely and utterly stupid for someone to have to face a punishment for something that is based off of the word of one person. This is a joke of the NFL’s version of the justice system. According to the NFL’s “Personal-Conduct” policy, a breach in the policy entails “conduct detrimental for Covered Persons to engage in (or to aid, abet or conspire to engage in or to incite) violent and/or criminal activity.” Where was the violent and/or criminal activity? Where is the proof? Until you have proof, don’t hide behind your policy wrongfully.

Along with his suspension, Roethlisberger will have to take part in a “comprehensive behavioral evaluation.” Need I say more here? Let dumb-dumb play Football; that’s what you pay him to do and leave the behavioral evaluations for serial killers and child molesters. Maybe the NFL needs their own evaluation…

What do you think and what is your HONEST FACTOR?

    He needs sex rehab! That cures everyone, doesn't it?

    People need repercussions for calling the police, almost creating an arrest, ruining someone's reputation and ensuing an investigation to only turn around and have it be false. Let's face it! This is false and the information given by the girl is shady! One minute she said she was raped, another minute she said she wasn't sure if they had sex. I hope she faces her own punishment.

    There may not be a "rape" intent, and the courts will find out what exactly happened, but as far as the NFL is concerned, there is enough evidence that calls for a suspension. Because of an active investigation, the NFL is been quiet about what they know, but they know enough. It's like OJ Simpson. He was found not guilty for the murder (what a load of crap) but on the civil court he lost all his possessions. The NFL is doing the same, unfortunately for him, this does not help his case.

    wow this is really insane. there really needs to be a law in place to punish these people who make false claims.

    This happened before with him, I believe. I needs to learn a lesson to perhaps make the right decisions on where he is and when he's there. Perhaps he needs to hang out at less slutty bars.
