Ben’s Big Suspension Gets Smaller

leave a comment »

So Ben Roethlisberger got his six-game suspension reduced to four games. Uh, yay?

Ben Roethlisberger’s suspension has been cut from six games to four by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ star quarterback met with Goodell early Friday and was told he could return on Oct. 17 against Cleveland.

In that one-on-one meeting, which took place at Westchester County Airport, about 30 miles north of the NFL offices in Manhattan, Roethlisberger was contrite and real, a source with knowledge of the meeting told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio. Then Goodell informed Roethlisberger that the suspension would be reduced — but that Roethlisberger must continue to avoid any further violations of the personal conduct policy.

The big talk around my redneck of the woods was should the suspension have been reduced even more. I don’t feel he should have been suspended at all, but he was. And the commissioner said that if Ben didn’t rape nobody else that his punishment would be cut by one-third. Ben didn’t rape nobody and he got his suspension cut by two games. That’s the way it was. To think anything different would be foolish.

If this isn’t a wake-up call for Ben to get his shit straightened out then I don’t know what will.
