Default You're on the jury...........................................

While Ben was not charged with rape, it has not prevented this incident in becoming a media and internet explosion. People have taken sides, from all walks of life. What I am now asking is for everyone who wishes to participate place yourself on Ben's trial jury. You have or should have read any and all reports, testament, and make your vote. Put your homerism and black and gold glasses aside, put any hatred of the man aside. Just vote guilty or innocent.

If you feel you do not have enough information to make a decision than make a simple statement as to such. I have read numerous members responses and I believe it will not shock some as to their verdict. Lets keep this simple, guilty or innocent, no blasting the voter for their opinion. No explaining your vote, just guilty or innocent. I will start.

NOT GUILTY.

What, no poll.

Draft day can't get here soon enough.

Not guilty, but not innocent either.

Seriously if you apply any amount of objectivity to it and you have even the most rudimentary understanding of our legal system it's pretty obvious why Bright never even gave the case to a Grand Jury. The accuser and her sorority sisters would have withered under cross, and they had no physical evidence despite a rape kit being performed in an expediant manner, thus no case.

Yes, we need a poll-with a third choice of "Dumb ass who makes poor choices". (I couldn't say if he was guilty or not)

Guilty of some sexual activity with a drunk as a skunk woman who couldn't have fully consented to it.

With the evidence at hand, I would have to vote NOT GUILTY.

While the "victim" had definite internal "damages" her story changed and she was inconsistent in her statements. It also isn't Ben's job to prove his innocence rather the DA and proscecutor's job to prove him guilty and nothing I've read shows that 100%

NOT Guilty of Rape or Sexual Assault

Guilty of Poor Judgement
which is neither illegal nor punishable

As far as actually sending him to jail? I'd have to vote not guilty -- not enough proof for that.

Am I 90% certain he took advantage of a falling-down drunk chick, which puts him somewhere between sleazeball and borderline criminal? That sounds about right.

We're adding a lot of choices to the poll. Now it has to have:

- Guilty
- Not guilty but find for the plaintiff in a lawsuit
- Guilty only of poor judgment
- Patriots suck and Tom Brady is gay
- Brett Favre
