    Do you agree with punishment issued to Ben Roethlisberger?

    I am sincerely sorry for Mr. Roethlisberger situation. But I am equally happy to see professional held responsible for there actions. Most professional athletes are under contract and are able to play again. But in many cases high school athletes don't get that second chance.
    In many cases they receive favorable treatment because of their special talent. This causes them problems because of their maturity level. They don't achieve academically or  have brushes with the law.
    I know Charles Barkley said athletes are not role models,  but most young athletes have no other role models.

    Absolutely! He had been warned prior to this season and still had a problem. Even if you give him the benefit of the doubt (i don't see why) he's still behaving like a teenager on a drunken binge. He should know better being the face of a franchise.

    No, I'm not happy. He was suspended for six games with the possibility of only missing four games if he followed through on his commitments. Predictably, he only missed four games. I think he got off easy.
    But that's okay. It was much fun watching the Saints rush him last night.
