Default So I have 2 Roethlisberger Jerseys hanging in my closet...

and there is a good chance that i will never put them on again. I expect much more from the face of the Pittsburgh Steelers than this considering the last one was Jerome Bettis. Anyone else regretting their jersey purchases? or looking for a cheap home and away #7? (last part is sarcastic but i am embarrassed to wear them right now)

Ah the court of public opinion. So you know he's guilty?

How about this, every single time you post I'm going to accuse you of something, whether you did it or not. Now, we're all just going to assume you are guilty, following your example.

I'm the first one to hate on blind obedience, but this man has yet to be found guilty of any crime, and you'd do well to remember that.

Why would you be embarrassed to wear your jersey. Ben has not been charged with anything. For all we know it may just be a gold digger wanting money. I would not be ashamed to wear it unless Ben is proven guilty.

I don't blame a Steeler fan who doesn't want to wear his Ben jersey until he proves he's innocent of felony sexual assualt. Yeah I know charges haven't been filed yet, and I really do hope Garland is right when he says none are forthcoming. But we all know the accusation is out there, and it's certainly not a stretch at this point to think there may be some truth to these allegations, so why in the world do I want to wear that jersey out in public right now? Particuarly for those of us who don't live in the Greater Pittsburgh area, you just don't want to put that bulls eye on your back.

Thank god my son's two best jerseys ( the official NFL product) are for Heath Miller and Troy Polamalu.

Everyone is going to do what they feel is best for them under the circumstances, but at this point, with absolutely no evidence being put out on the public table, I simply feel people are trying and convicting the man prematurely and are - simply put - overreacting.

If I had a #7 jersey, I would have absolutely no problem sporting it. In fact, I saw several people wearing them yesterday afternoon when I was out and about.

I have a Ben jersey, it will be destined at some point for a shadow box and put on the wall as will my other jerseys.
This whole deal is more than charges being filed, it is Ben's really poor decisions, guilty or not, criminal or not and the bad press it brings not only him but the team as well. YOu would think after the Nevada allegation and civil suit pending he would be more cautious. This allegation and Ben putting himself in a situation for this to happen can only create him more problems with the civil suit and in his future. Good luck Ben , I think you are going to need it.

BTW, you should never feel ashamed to wear the black and gold if you are a true die hard fan, regardless of the number on it!!!!!!!!!!!

You could always change Roethlisberger to Moron on the jersey. Regardless of his guilt he has proven over and over to be an idiot.
