What about the rest of the league? Everyone acts like Ben's the only "scumbag" the NFL has ever produced. Please. I don't buy it. All NFL players or athletes alike are no saints, period. I agree with Madden. Ben is the victim in all of this. See what allegations of one drunken skank could do?

And kudos to the walking hypocritical contradiction Terry Bradshaw. Typical cop-out BS rant. We get it, Bradshaw.. you hate Pittsburgh. You don't have to show your damn face here ever again. We loved you as a QB and you will forever be stuff of legends, but don't act like you're the all-mighty standard of a human being. You aren't. Thanks for the 4 SB's.

"Everyone acts like Ben's the only "scumbag" the NFL has ever produced. Please. I don't buy it." - Well said and I agree. Anyone who knows the history of the Cowboys, or the Vikings or the Raiders, or "insert team name here", knows that there were lots of players of ill repute on any team you care to name.

Actually, Drew Brees is a Saint. So is Pierre Thomas, Reggie Bush, Marques Colston, Devery Henderson, Robert Meachem........

Ya, I was 100% for the suspension when it was first given but after all the other incidents (specifically the Shaun Rodgers one because I think that almost warrants jailtime personally, the fact he got away with a slap on the wrist infuriated me) I just was mad about it...not because I think Ben didnt deserve it, but because it was made clear that Goddell just wanted to put himself on a pedestal by suspending a "league star" and didnt care what anybody else did.

Also, I hope we unofficially unretire number 12

Normally, I'd respond to this but I just am not feeling it anymore, nor do I have the energy or desire.

How 'bout I send you a friend request instead?

Would you be interested?

Ben violated the Conduct Policy. If it was Carson Palmer you Homers would agree with Goodell. Did shaun rogers embarrass the league like Ben did? Even close? Name me one other guy to embarrass the league worse than Ben in the last year. I'll wait.

In the past, Goodell has made it clear that protecting the NFL's brand is his foremost concern. When Goodell barred Vick from training camp while dogfighting charges were pending against him, he wrote this to Vick: "While it is for the criminal justice system to determine your guilt or innocence, it is my responsibility as commissioner of the National Football League to determine whether your conduct, even if not criminal, nonetheless violated league policies, including the Personal Conduct Policy."

Ben VIOLATED the conduct policy and was suspended accordingly. You guys act like Seahawk fans. Instead of just saying "We got beat by the better team" they have to blame the refs, instead of blaming their team. If you want to blame someone, BLAME BEN.

I know that it's all matter of opinion, and it's been debated to death. But how anyone feels that Ben deserved to be suspended just blows me away.

I totaly agree with Madden. Several months ago a Colts player was accused of the same thing Ben was. But....... he wasn't a starter on the team. haven't heard anything more about it. Could it have been swept under the rug since he wasn't a star in the NFL? Then several weeks ago a Colts player was found drunk in a ditch. In Indiana that merits a drunk in public charge. But...... he wasn't charged. Haven't heard anything from Goddell about either incident. Wherse does he draw the line?

He did deserve to be suspended. How anyone thinks he doesnt just blows ME away. Even Ben thinks he should have been. Thats the reason he didnt appeal it.
