Sports - What does it say about society that Ben Rothlisberger returned to a loud chorus of cheers?
You make it sound like you believe he was guilty of something evil, REMEMBER talk is cheap it was never proven. Wake up its innocent until proven guilty NOT the other way round. He was still suspended by the NFL for it, served his time like Vick and Lewis did and now we get to enjoy his talent (like today) That speaks volumes in itself. and NO I;m not a Steeler fan in any way
My questions was rooted in a simple fact: the fans cheered him as if he was a returning hero. I am not saying he shouldn't be allowed to play. I just wonder about the adulation. I would have sat there with my hands in my pockets.
This was the 2nd time he has been accused of forcing a woman to have sex with him. He was suspended because the league knew he stepped over his bounds. I believe the witness refused to cooperate. I for one am tired of society overlooking these things just because winning is more important than character.
And I do believe he was guilty. The evidence is very poweful. What if that girl was your daughter? How would you feel then?
You know, I am so glad you asked that question. I though everyone had just swept it under the rug. Come on, Mike Vick was sent to jail, fined and looked down on, and still is today because he faught dogs...Not that I commend that in any way. However, Ben was accused of forcing a woman to have sex, and what does he get? Few weeks off, pat on the butt, then totally re-embraced by the league,fans,society...Fishy? Scales tipped? Of course! Seriously, this is a person, a woman, a human being. In my opinion, Ben's punishment/suspension much less harsh than Vick's, and those were dogs. You mean to tell me that a dog is more valuable and precious than a human being. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. We'll see what happens the 3rd time around. Gr8t question!

Do you pick up other people trash and put it in a bin when you walk in a mall, on the sidewalk, etc?Like an empty bag, a empty cup of coffee, etc.If you do it, what motivates you? If you don't, do you feel guilty...

Does anyone else feel that organized religion is built on a foundation of making you feel guilty?I feel that in order for an organized religion to run successfully it must be predicated on the fact that you must feel...
