Yep, but all it was was a false accusation so it didn't effect his draft value at all and none of the fans could give 2 craps about it now.

But with Ben...nooo our so called fans want him thrown into oncoming traffic. Ben should be disgusted to have to play here. After what he has done for that team and this city, for our fans to turn our backs on him because of only accusations makes me sick.

It would seem to me that you condone what's he's been accused of.

A couple more Cowboys off the top of my head.

In 1970, Lance Rentzel was arrested for exposing himself to a ten-year-old girl.

In 1987 Rafiel Septien pled guilty to a charge of indecency with a child.

No not at all...if he was charged criminally I'd be the first one to want him gone. But as long as they are only accusations...with lots of holes in both cases at that...then yes I will support him because I care more about what happens on the football field (ya know touchdowns and Super Bowls) than any player's character and morals.

I do not condone the act he has been accused of. I just do not paint him as guilty without some concrete evidence. Being an azzhole, a man ho, someone who does not know how to wine and dine is not a crime. Next thing we know, we should do an investigation into every Steeler in the organization as to their sex lives, their drinking habits, and if they are cruel to animals.

I don't condone what he's been "accused" of, but that's just it, he's only been accused, not convicted. There's two sides to the story, but some such as you choose to see only the accuser's side despite the fact that it's chock full hole of holes.

And history dictates that not being charged means he is innocent of the charges. Forgive me, I forgot.

Michael Irvin TWICE by the same chick. Jerome Bettis had that BJ incident as well.

I just can't figure out with all of these retracted charges and verifiably false accusations (where there's email/text message evidence or witnesses to the lead-up or what the "victim" told them) why everyone STILL assumes the player actually did it! ESPECIALLY when there's ZERO evidence of violence or force.

I wasn't charged with any crimes this week, so does that mean I probably raped someone?
