" Sources in and around the league believe Roethlisberger will receive a suspension of between two and four games."

for having sex with a drunk chick? i am not in favor for any suspension handed to him by the NFL. The team can do with him what they would (hopefully no suspension, i still dont think he deserves that) but the NFL shouldnt be able to touch him. ridiculous

If for whatever reason the Rooneys are fined, Big Ben better pay for it with his own dam money!

Guys calm down this has been in place since 2008. Basically the money that Ben doesnt get paid during his possible suspension instead of the Steelers keeping it, it now goes to the NFL. Not sure how the Holmes thing will work out because hes a Jet now maybe they will have to pay because he is their player now.

This thing was set in place when the new misconduct code was realeased in '08 i believe, i was hearing something about it on ESPN.

Whatever suspension he gets he is getting it from the Steelers and the NFL combined which is what Mr. Rooney said yesterday in his press conference. This way they will agree on a fair punishment and he'll only get 1 punishment instead of 1 from the team AND 1 from the NFL.

Who knows maybe thats the better way and it will minimize the amount of games

THAT is ridiculous and I have to believe Goodell would forgo any attempt to fine our organization. Even if it's an insignificant amount. These media types need to go back to school and learn how to find the REAL stories for crying out loud.
