Default Have to cut or trade ben

I first want to say that I am a big fan of Ben's. But fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me I mean 2 times in a couple year's something just don't add up. We have to cut or trade him And that sounds crazy but if we don't do something it's going to come back and bite us in the ass. What do you guys think

How about waiting to see if he's guilty or not before ya cut him? If he's guilty then I'll be the first one to burn my jersey and send the ashes to the Steelers asking them to cut Ben from the team.

Why is it that in today's society people are so eager to cut ties when the times get rough and tough? Look there is no reason why we need to cut Ben as of now. Let's be patient with the system, be patient with Ben. Yes he's put himself in a bad situation, not once but twice. Whether or not he's guilty of any of it only he and the two women involved know 100%.

The better poll would be, should Ben be taking classes on learning how to handle his fame or in the film room studying last years games?

BTW, I voted NO!

Whether Ben remains with the team or not depends on how the Rooney family feels. The Steelers have always been a class act, historically respected as one of the classiest in the league. How Dan and Art Rooney evaluate the impact of all this on the image of the Steeler organization will determine whether Ben stays or leaves. Yes, I know he is owed a lot of money. But if merchandise sales and advertising revenues drop, the owners may well decide to cut their losses and move forward without Ben.

Ben's behavior, whether ultimately rising to the level warranting the filing of criminal charges in Georgia or not, is out of control. His lack of judgment and his "this is about me" attitude unless checked, will ultimately bring more shame and sorrow on our wonderful team. So here is hoping that 1) there are no charges filed, 2) Ben takes steps, concrete visible and observable steps to grow up, and 3) the Rooneys are more forgiving that I suspect they are.

They better not cut him and I would bet anything they won't. This is sexual assult which is a very bad midemeanor but it's not rape. He may be suspended if found guilty but he won't be cut.

I would bet the farm that Ben is not only NOT going anywhere, but this story will be forgotten come training camp.

I say no for now, let the legal process play out, then reinvestigate all options again.
