I always consider when I see things like this... Troy put himself in a situation to get very close to someone who was likely to die. Some of you may know the will this takes to follow through. It can be both heaven and hell on your heart. Everything we come to learn about him is more evidence that he is a kind and big-hearted person deserving of all the praise and fame he has earned. This is why I spend my money on merchandise and tickets (rare though it may be!). Everyone in this league has the means to make a difference - and very rarely does it have anything to do with money.

I've been so wrapped up in my disgust for Ben and how he treats not only women but men, fans, ect. - that I've lost sight of how wonderful our team the Steelers are.

Never met Heather, but long knew of her story and am so sad to hear of her passing. I literally have been crying for her and her family.

What a beautiful smile she had that lit up all around her.

Just wish tragedy wouldn't be able to touch the children in our world.

... and people really don't understand the difference between this and a guy who takes advantage of drunk chicks in a bar bathroom.

"OMG, he's only 28!! What do you expect him to do, he's just living his life!!!"

This. Troy is the exact same age, believe it or not.

I cannot think of a more concrete example of exactly who I would want on my team for every reason in the world. It just sucks that this story had to have such a terrible outcome.

I agree.

What a sad story first off. Second, it sure does show a difference between the two.

However, lest we forget,

Two years ago when I was there for a game, I was talking to another "Make a Wish" foundation family. They talked about how Ben came blasting through the doors like a professional wrestler, making a big scene... all for this little girl that was sick.

I'm glad you posted this, Preacher.

My niece was very ill with a serious infection last year and spent over a week in Childrens' Hospital in Pittsburgh. My brother asked on of the nurses if Troy had been in recently and she said "No, he's out of town for the summer but you just missed Ben. He was here yesterday.". That's why I don't believe that Ben is nearly quite as heartless as he is being portrayed by the media. (That's assuming he didn't molest any of the nurses while he was there. )

3 years ago, my best friends' daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia (I posted a thread about this back-then, which I can't locate), and although she eventually lost her battle, she too, had a visit from Polamalu
