Default Big Ben goes to the dogs for Cleveland

Virtually on the eve of the season opener in Cleveland between longtime bitter rivals the Steelers and Browns, a press release today announced that Roethlisberger is giving a grant to the Cleveland Police's K-9 Unit.

"The grant will be distributed to the Cleveland Division of Police's Canine Unit to purchase an explosive detection canine, dog training, and a canine protective vest," the news release from Roethlisberger's agent, Ryan Tollner, read.

"It's something we decided to do, my foundation is doing, after the police dog in my hometown got shot and killed. We decided to do it for every away city I play in and every time we play at home - pick a department here in Pittsburgh to donate to," Roethlisberger said today.




Great gesture by Ben - think this give's Vick's attorneys any ideas?

This isn't the locker room... Not saying I disagree with you... Nor trying to act all high and mighty or anything... I just wouldn't have posted that in here IMO... Please don't respond I don't want to start an arguement I just wanted to let it be known that I think that should be kept to the locker room... Prevents tension lol... :)

This is a good thing to see with all of the Vick stuff going on yes...

What a great gesture by Ben! I hope this shuts some yaps around the league as to Ben's character.

I fully support our officers and those beautiful 4 legged creatures who also proudly wear the badge and serve!

A good call, indeed.

Its nice to see an NFL player at least trying to rebalance the offseason away from the effect of countless selfish, lawbreaking douche-bags.
