Default Ben's I'm sorry speech

You know it's coming.
Will he pull a Tiger and proclaim his religion again?
Will he get teary eyed?
Will he go to counseling?

I think it will go something like this:

I would like to apolize to my family, the entire steelers organization and the fans. I am aware that my actions, while not illegal, have hurt the team and I am truly sorry for that. I would like to apologize to my parents, because they taught me better then to participate in some of the activities that happened that night and I am even more sorry for disappointing them. I am 110% dedicated to this team and I look forward proving my dedication to this team in the offseason and beyond.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

Why should he apologize? He didn't do anything wrong, especially to me. I hate it when celebrities think they need to say they are sorry. Did the REALLY do anything to hurt or change MY life........NO. Like Tiger Woods, apologize to your wife, not me.

You gotta be careful with the "I'm sorrys". I think it can make you appear guilty-ish in the eyes of some people. Almost as if showing some sort of remorse. If you state them just right, maybe. But very careful wording. If I were Ben and I truly believed that I did absolutely nothing wrong, nothing that even resembled an apology would escape my lips. If I felt there maybe at least was some poor judgment on my part, It would be a very carefully worded apology.

First of all Skinart, the Steelers pay him ALOT of $$$ and if he owes anyone an appology its them. If they or anyone is gonna pay that kind of $$$ then he is gonna have to be a team player and take the blame on all the troubles he is doing, whether he assaulted her or not he has brought problems and bad attention to the org that is paying all that $$$ for him to play a game.

I think it will be more of an apology for being a distraction. They may not be illegal but irresponsible.

So he should just sit at home under the covers with the lights out for the rest of his career? Dear God don't order a pizza, delivery driver may say you assaulted them. He's a man and a human before he's a Steeler. And don't get me wrong, I love Ben and I love the Steelers, but the guy is only 28, He's 3 weeks older than me, he isn't some dirty old man and he isn't married. It sucks that the woman he chose to spend time with decided to be spiteful and make false allegations against him!!!

No he shouldn't. But when his actions effect the rest of the team and are a distraction then yes he should apologize. The steelers gave him a lot of money to be the face of the franchise. They put faith in him that he was up for it. And all we have seen from his that he likes to party a little to much.
