Default Ben should be at these workouts !!

I know its voluntary but still. Its not like we won the super bowl last year. If Ben is innocent he should be there working out with the others. I know it would be a circus but who put himself in this situation....BEN DID. Just look at the pictures if you don't think this guy needs to be working out. Maybe he knows something we dont like he wont be playing this year ?

Ben's presence at voluntary workouts would be more of a distraction than anything. I think he's got alot of things to do between now and the start of camp.

You talk distractions???? Ben has caused major ones in now 3 of the last few off seasons. This is just more proof that this guy is way less than professional. He came to camp last year and it took a couple weeks to get his throwing arm in shape.... He looks in even worse shape this year than last. We all know Ben doesnt have the greatest arm to begin with. If he's going to be in hiding now this cant be good for the start of next season. He cant hide forever...I'm sure right now he wishes he could.

how do you know bens boss didnt order him to stay as far away from the training facility as possible?

while it is easy to scream on a message board, we really dont know what is going on.

I would imagine the Steelers wouldn't want Ben around the team until this matter is fully resolved. If by chance charges are filed I think the Steelers will take the route the Falcons did a few years back with Vick and grant him some form of leave of absense.

Yes, yet more positive proof against Ben.

I remember reading an article on this board which stated that other Steelers players didn't show up for the vol workout and that it would be highly unusual for Ben to have been there. Just can't find the story.

I bet there were alot of starting players all over the league that missed them for whatever reason. May they burn in hell.
