Agreed that Roethlieberger's situation caused many casual fans to root against the Steelers last season - although #7 was not charged with a crime the Milledgeville event combined with the Nevada allegations and Goodell deciding to tee up Roethlisberger definitely created a backlash

But as has been the case with Ray Lewis (who pleaded guilty to obstructing the investigation of the Atlanta murder in which his crew was involved) with the passage of time my bet is the animosity directed at Roethlisberger will fade if he stays out of trouble and continues to win
