Why is this thread here in the political forum, to save it from getting moved here. I think that Goddell has to suspend Roethlisberger today, basically for racial harmony of the league. Let me first say the he DESERVES TO BE SUSPENDED, he acted like a moron (at least twice) a grown man with an entourage trolling college bars getting 20 year old girls drunk and having sex with them in the bathroom, while his "bodyguards" block the door. The only reason that he is not facing charges is that the girl was too drunk to make a decent witness against him (and if she was too drunk to do that, she was too drunk to give informed consent). But since Goddell has suspended black players such as Pacman, Henry, Stallworth, Lynch all under the "Personal Conduct" policy. I think (rightly or wrongly) the Roethlisberger situation is going to be looked at through the prism of race. If Goddell does not suspend Big Ben, the cries of favoritism and racism will flow (and maybe rightly so). I say that he really has to suspend Roethlisberger (and that the Pats should play the Steelers and the Jets within the first 4 games next year).
