Default Hines Ward Wants Ben Roethlisberger To Come Clean With The Team

SportingNews
Steelers receiver Hines Ward(notes) wants QB Ben Roethlisberger(notes) to go to confession about the missteps that landed him on NFL suspension. Ward was on the NFL Network’s Total Access on Wednesday and said Roethlisberger should address the team going into training camp so "we can all put it behind us and move forward."

Trouble is, according to ProFootballTalk.com, anything Roethlisberger says to the team could be used against him in a court of law. In addition to civil action filed by the victim of an alleged sexual assault in Georgia, Roethlisberger also faces trial in a 2008 civil case in Nevada in another alleged sexual assault.


Roethlisberger is facing a possible six-game suspension, which can be reduced to four, to start the 2010 season. The Steelers appear ready to begin with Byron Leftwich(notes) as their starter, making it likely Roethlisberger would have to take the job away from him when he returns.


Earlier this month, Roethlisberger declined to comment on allegations in the Georgia case in an interview with WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh. He said he was sorry for "dumb" and "immature" behavior while a member of the Steelers, according to a USA Today blog.


Also earlier in June, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation released interviews with Roethlisberger’s accuser in which she said the quarterback’s March 5 appearance in Milledgeville, a town 80 miles southeast of Atlanta that is home to Georgia College & State University, was "weird." Video of the interview appeared on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette website.

Roethlisberger owns a vacation home near the Georgia bar where the assault allegedly occurred.


The alleged victim said she didn’t fight back because she was afraid. "His temper kept her from trying harder to stop him, she said, though she insists she was clear in rebuffing Roethlisberger’s advances," according to a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.


NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who ordered Roethlisberger’s suspension, allowed the quarterback to return to team activities on June 1. In a later interview on the Steelers’ website, team president Art Rooney II said he was pleased with Roethlisberger’s attitude and performance. "Ben’s trying to make a commitment to make the changes he needs to make." Rooney also said he thought Goodell’s "actions were appropriate under the circumstances."

I have to agree with Hines. Ben needs to address his teammates and explain what happen that night. they have been defending him, but they dont really know why they are defending him.

Yes Ben should address the team and let them know he is sorry for letting them down and as far as going into specific details I don't think he should do this as this may not be the best thing for him legally.

Ben can let them know that he made some immature decisions and he has learned from his mistakes and his goal is to be a better person and do whatever it takes for him to be the QB to lead this team. I think this is what Hines wants not a full yes I did this and no I did not do this statement.

Hines speaks true.

They just want to know in the last 2 minutes if they want this play called by a rapist.

Ben needs a wife bad.

Ef Hines Ward.

Hines needs to keep his damn mouth shut.
As great a receiver as he is he just doesn't know when to shut up.
