Default Re: What if Big Ben was black?

I like the question somewhat

But how about we word it this way.......

If Ben was black would he have been able to carry himself in the same way as he has, as the franchise QB of the Steelers?

From what I have read about Ben in the papers and how he has conducted himself I would say no

Could Donovan McNabb get away with what Ben has done without severe public backlash and/or suspension?
I dont think so

I do think public perception and criticism could be a little more harsh on Ben.

But I am glad it is not because I am a Steeler Fan

I am a Steeler Fan to the day I die and I think Ben is being protected media wise.... maybe not in PA but I dont live there so I cant comment on PA

I just wish Ben would clean his act up or handle himself in a way that these incidents dont happen.

I really dont care if Ben is being rude to a waitress or tells a autograph requestor to go dig a ditch

I dont know Ben personally and I dont really care if I ever meet him

I just want him to perform to the best of his abilities and help bring the #7 Lombardi back home

I can't believe I even replied to this nonsense. I've already had several complaints about the topic of this thread so I'm going to have to lock it down - sorry.
